Trailer Tiger: 1964 Sunbeam Tiger Project

1964 Sunbeam Tiger Trailer Find

We would all love to have a real Shelby Cobra, but they are hard to find and if you do, it is going to cost you. It may not be as fast or well known as the Cobra, but this 1964 Sunbeam Tiger could be an affordable alternative. With its American power plant and British charm these can make fun little cars for racing or collecting. Find this Tiger here on eBay with bidding at $12,877 reserve unmet. It is located in Council Bluffs Iowa and the auction has seven days left.

1964 Sunbeam Tiger Front

This Tiger is going to take some major work to put back together, but it is in much better condition than this one we featured a while back. This car belonged to the seller’s father who can no longer work on it because of health problems. Much of the car has been unassembled and it has been in dry storage since 1971.

1964 Sunbeam Tiger Project Engine

The sale includes two engines. The original is out of the car, but at least it is available. There is a list of all the work that has been done on the engine, but we are not sure if it was done recently. The typed list does mention that the car only has 50k miles and that a lot of work has been done on the 289 Mustang engine currently installed.

1964 Sunbeam Tiger Project Interior

The interior is rough with missing gauges and trim pieces. We are not sure if the parts are included, but there are a few boxes of stuff in the trunk. Looks like there is a mess to sort through, but if the reserve is not set too high this could make a good restoration project for someone. Would it be a sin to strip it out and turn it into a vintage race car? We sure loved watching these tear around the track with Mustangs and Ferraris in Monterey a few weeks ago.

    I am interested in this car. Has there been a compression test done on the engine? Does the car drive at all? I would like to know if the transmission works properly? Thank you

    You might try contacting the seller through eBay. Looks like the car did not meet reserve at $16,100.
