Our badge says “Sunbeam 260,” along with the Alpine script. A friend in the same tank battalion I was in, had bought a Tiger the year before, and it had “Tiger” script on the side, white with a black interior so the change occurred sometime in late ’65.
I had been teasing him about whether he was going to drive or shave with his new purchase until he tossed me his keys and said to take his out on the autobahn! My purchase order followed. (Then the lights failed on way home from Dusseldorf to Mannheim, then the tac failed on PA turnpike, between Bayonne and Michigan.) Jim TE/AE #2403
