        My 1964 MK1 Sunbeam Tiger B9470968LRXFE is currently for sale.
        I am asking $59,900 or best offer.
        This 1964 Sunbeam Tiger is a Mk 1 example that underwent a mechanical and cosmetic refurbishment in 2020-2021 before it was purchased by the seller. The car is finished in green over black vinyl upholstery and powered by a 260ci Ford V8 paired with a four-speed manual transmission. Features include a black soft top, a Summit Racing four-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock aluminum intake manifold, PerTronix electronic ignition, a spin-on oil filter adaptor, a dual-exit exhaust system, a front sway bar, 15″ VTO alloy wheels, a wood dash panel, and a Moto-Lita steering wheel. Work performed under current ownership involved the installation of replacement steering rack boots, a voltage regulator, a GPS speedometer, a tachometer, and a voltmeter. This Mk 1 Tiger is offered in Florida with a Certificate of Authenticity from the Sunbeam Tiger Owner’s Association (STOA), a Coventry Transport Museum Certificate of Vehicle Authenticity, an owner’s handbook, tools, a tonneau cover, a spare speedometer and tachometer, service records, repair manuals, and a clean Virginia title in the seller’s name.

        Delivered from the factory in Forest Green (86), the car was repainted in an MG-sourced shade of green in the late 1980s and was resprayed under previous ownership in 2020. A replacement windshield and seal were also installed, and additional exterior equipment includes chrome bumpers with overriders, a black soft top, bullet-style door mirrors, and polished dual exhaust outlets. The windshield washer lines are not installed.

        Staggered-width silver 15″ VTO alloy wheels feature polished lips with Sunbeam Tiger-branded center caps and are mounted with Kuhmo Ecsta PA31 tires measuring 195/50 up front and 205/50 out back. Replacement front springs, sway bar bushings, and shock absorbers were fitted under previous ownership along with a 0.875″ front sway bar. The steering rack boots were replaced under current ownership. Stopping power is provided by front discs and rear drums.

        The cockpit features reclining bucket seats trimmed in black vinyl along with a matching dash pad, door panels, and carpets. A replacement Lucas turn signal switch was installed under the seller’s ownership. Black rubber mats line the floors, and a pair of Tiger-branded mats are included in the sale.

        The leather-wrapped Moto-Lita steering wheel fronts a burl wood dash panel housing a replacement Jaeger-branded GPS speedometer, a 5,500-rpm tachometer, and a voltmeter that were installed under current ownership. Additional auxiliary gauges feature readouts for oil pressure, water temperature, and fuel level. The digital odometer shows 156 miles, and approximately 170 miles were added under current ownership. Total mileage is unknown. The original speedometer and tachometer are included in the sale.

        The 260ci Ford V8 features chrome valve covers and was fitted with a replacement Summit Racing four-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock aluminum intake manifold, PerTronix electronic ignition, and a spin-on oil filter adaptor under previous ownership in 2020. Service performed under the seller’s ownership included installing an Autolite voltage regulator and a replacement fuse box. An oil leak is noted from the oil pan drain plug.

        Power is sent to the rear wheels via a four-speed manual transmission. A slight drip is noted from the transmission.

        The Certificate of Authenticity from the Sunbeam Tiger Owners Association shows factory identification numbers and the color code. JAL number 560501 does not match the number on the car, 560504. This discrepancy is addressed in a letter written by the Tiger Authentication Committee inspector who completed the certificate .A Coventry Transport Museum Certificate of Vehicle Authenticity.
