    Default 1966 Sunbeam Tiger

    This is a Sunbeam Tiger that i built at work. It has a 427 side oiler crammed in it. I built the frame , roll cage rear suspension, rockers and some of the tin work. I wish that i would have taken more pictures of it during the build.



    Here it is at Autorama last year

    That came out very nice. Is it just for show? I don't see how you'll ever get that much power to the ground on such a small car.

    I think the owner plans on driving it on the street. I'm not sure how much power it makes but it shouldn't be too bad. i drove a different Tiger last summer, pretty similar to this one with a 430 HP 347 Ford. It hooked up suprisingly well and still handled like a go kart. I put about 200 miles on it in one day. What a blast that was

    Sick car, I remember seeing it at Autorama. This is the one in Hot Rod this month, right? I didn't realize the history of these cars until I read the article, very cool.
