I became a car salesman in 1966, in London, and the very first car I sold was a used white Sunbeam Tiger. My employer was J.Coryton Ltd in whose name, as its subsidiary, all BSM (British School of Motoring) cars were registered including the cars of their High Performance Course (HPC) of which the Sunbeam was one, from new. J.Coryton Roberts had founded BSM but was later edged out. A typical HPC lesson, with supervision, was to drive from Chelsea to Norwich and back in the morning! All HPC cars (all fast) were white with a large black and red roundel on each side bearing the HPC insignia. When the roundel was peeled off prior to selling the cars after a few months it left a shadow on the white paint. I overheard the senior salesman say to a prospect that the round mark on the door of the Tiger that he'd commented on was "because the car had been numbered and entered in a Concours D'elegance last weekend, Sir, which it won!". My lucky first morning at the new job was when a local antique dealer, possibly a Mr Eginton, asked to trial the Tiger. I drove him out from our showroom opposite Pelham Crescent on Fulham Road to the Airport (Heathrow) down the M4. I whooshed it up to a tremendous 100mph (pre 70 limit) much more for my own excitement than his. I'd never ever been in a car at that speed let alone driven one! On the return, having heard the sound and seen the speed, the customer never drove faster than 60 to my relief, and he purchased it. And why wouldnt he? Fantastic car. I cant remember the price. It would have been around £1000? A new Rover 2000 was about £1400, A Triumph 2000 about £1200, and a new Mini 1000 was £565.02.01 inc Purchase Tax.

Greatings All, Years ago, my middle boy, Zippy, had a '70 Mini. We were watching a Speed Vision doc on the Coopers. We were watching a segment on the Mini's success in the '66 Scottish Rallye, when the GT class winner, a light blue, RHD hood scooped Tiger EGA 65C, driven piloted by Wilson/Harper, flew by the screen for a few frames. Both my son and I jumped up and said "Did you see that!" Looked exactly like my car, could it be? Years passed and I contacted Noman Miller at STOA, and asked him what the VIN number was for that Brit champ, EGA 65C. There is no vin # record of that plate. He said that his records show that the vehicle had been destroyed, and that my car was made on the Wednesday before the rallye, making it unlikely that it had been campaigned there. But, as we all know, the plate # is what was tracked, and the Rootes Company records were hand written and/or not precise. My car shows signs of rough road work. There's a cantalope sized smash, square in the middle front of the suspension cross member. You'd have to be at speed to make a dent like that. I'd like to know how many blue, ribbed hood scooped RHD rallye cars were campained. I've tried to register but encountered a problem, have contacted the adm. After 36 years in storage, it's gettin a workover in 2015 On another note, I managed to aquire the remaining inventory of an authorized Rootes maintenance shop in Stockton, CA, from the mechanics widow, in '76. Included flat rate books, factory service manuals, and reciept ledger. Talbot, Commer, Singer. Most parts are for flat head 4 stuff, including iteams we take for granted today, like factory manifolds for the "heater" option, water pump rebuild kits, glass tail light lenses, all in Rootes boxes. Once upon a time, I sent a list and picture of my score, to the Hillman Commer Karrier Club, in Surry England, to see if I could help any one out, but they shined me. Hello again and thank for any help, PAX

I am a member of the Jensen Owners Club Forum, not because I own a Jensen but I worked for the Company as draughtsman in 1959 -61 and 1964 - 67. In my later stint I worked on the Jensen FF. Sadly had no connection with the Tiger. I did know Bernard Unett though when I worked for Chrysler/Peugeot. The reason for the post is to say that on the JOC forum today, under the 'Classic cars on the Road' thread, there is a photo of a red Sunbeam Tiger with Reg. No.TGR065.I just wondered if the owner is a member of STOC? It seems to be an excellent example.

My wife, mother in law and I went out for a meal with my daughter and her new fiancee last night at Norway Inn, Perranworthal, near Truro in Cornwall UK. Rather than wanting to take some pics of them, I was more interested in the Australian Red Tiger parked outside, Queensland registraion V8 TIGER in fully restored and immaculate condition, despite being so far from home. I've a 72/3 Triumph TR6 2500PI with the straight 6, but I think I'd've been open to a swap if the owner was interested. I had a couple Rootes group in my youth, the best of which was a 71 brand new Super Imp in Sunshine metallic, a superb little car that would happily run up to 95mph (with a couple of bags of dampened 1 cwt bags of cement squished into the very limited bootspace in front so it was steerable and reliably controllable). I drove a few different Rootes Group vehicles in the Police which was how I came across the Imp. At that time 1971, I could afford to buy an Imp outright, but wanted to go for a TR6PI. My parents succeeded in dissuading me from taking HP (credit terms), so it was only in 2002 after a very close brush with Cancer that my wife said to me, "The hell with saving that TR6 now while you still can", which we did and it's now waiting for me as my major project when I retire (65 last February) but need to carry on working for a couple more years to pay off the mortgage.

Hi, My name is John Raynor and I used to be a member of the STOC when I owned a red Sunbeam Tiger Reg No MWC 269C. I bought it from Carl Rosner automobiles in about 1977-1978 when I lived in Kingswood nr Maidstone Kent. It was one of the best classic cars I have had and I regretfully sold it in 1981-1982 when I needed the money. At that time I was in Kirklevington North Yorkshire (later Cleveland) due to a job move. The person I sold it to made the car available to Classic and Sports Car for the article and cover photo in June 1982. (All details are from memory as I have no documentation from that era). I note that the car was present at your 40th anniversary gathering so it has obviously survived until that time. I would be very pleased if you could forward this message to the current owner who I assume to be a member of the STOC. If he would like to get in touch with me at john.raynor@bigpond.com I could fill him in on a few more details and eventually give him some pics from that time. The pics are in the UK and I am currently living in Australia so he would have to wait until I next returned in a few years time. Thank you.

Hi WB. Most buyers today seek a standard specification car, preferably with all the major components complete, because that condition tells you something about its history; not exclusively but a lot. Some buyers choose to uprate things once they have one. There are still lots of buyers out there wanting road/race machine too. It isn't easy building a convincing 'clone', besides there are plenty of folk who can spot one.

Am I right in that notion, and what is the reason, is it because it seems to be so easy to build a clone?

We have a discussion going on here in the states about whether Mark II's were all fitted with painted headlight rims. I've noticed serial # 633 has chrome rims, as well as Bill Withey's red MK II ( I think it's #632. To the best of your knowledge, were these fitted after the cars were sold new, or were they fitted as the end of production neared and the painted rims ran out of stock? The Jan.1968 parts catalogue seems to just list one part number for 1st production Mk II's and very late production Alpine V's.

Trevor. Pleased to tell you your old Tiger is very important to the marque! It is the 1st pre-production right hand drive Tiger - being built to Design Instruction GB 2762 - and so the first British specification Tiger. It survives but the Club hasn't seen it for several years.

I’m a 66 year old Ford and Mercury lover, and I once owned a nice 66 Tiger. I recently discovered a very nice book I had years ago, that was tucked away in some of my car things. I had forgotten I had it. It is a Supplement to the owner’s manual, and was printed in England. It is only several pages long, but is filled with photos and descriptions of how to raise and lower the hood (soft top) I’m sure some Tiger owner out there might be interested in owning it, and it is in very good condition.It is an original supplement, not a reprint.

I owned EBL 400C until January 1970, when it was stolen, canabalised for parts but found six weeks later. The insurance company kept it as a "write off" but it survived and was seen in Walton-on-Thames in 1975. Anybody know what happened after that?

I don't have much knowledge of the Sunbeams, but I really would like to find a Tiger to restore. Does anyone here have any tips as to buying one...as far as where to look for rust issues, identification numbers to prove a real Tiger, etc. I have always been an American muscle car guy, but really don't know enough about the Sunbeam...any help would be appreciated!

Hello! I'm thinking about putting my Tiger up for sale. I've had it about 15 years, but just never driven it much, so perhaps time to part with it . . . It's a 1965, restored version, but pretty original, all numbers match, but never authenticated. The body is great, a few dings, but pretty clean. Interior is okay, nothing special. I'm not sure of all the condition ratings, but it is no concours car, but it drives nice, in fairly original shape, hard top, soft top, tonneau, etc. I know that without seeing it, etc. it's hard to tell, but do you know what the heck this car might be worth? It appraised for $12,000 when I bought it, and perhaps driven it 500 miles since then. Speedo is shot, but I expect its actually a pretty high mileage car. Any help, assistance or advice you can offer is appreciated!

Hi Jack Your Mum's MKII Tiger is one of 3 right hand drive (HROFE) Tiger 2's built right at the end of production in late June 1967 for favoured Rootes Dealers - like your grandfather. Only 10 RHD MKII's were built (6 for the Metropolitan Police); the model was not offerred to the British market. So I am glad to hear you are going to get WRO 573E ready for the road in 2008.

Hi Joe. Glad you enjoy the STOC website. We'd sure like to see some photos of B9470017 FE in its new paint.Being as #17 is the 2nd production Tiger sold to the public you have one rare machine. I understand the first - Chassis 16 - has never been reported to Norm Miller. So your's is the earliest surviving 'private sale' production Tiger. B9470011 - B9470015 all went to the Competition Department for the rally program. Graham Vickery STOC Editor

The wierd thing is, i was on the phone to my daughter who was born at the same time that i was exchanging my Tiger for my Mustang, when i clicked on your reply. Spooky or what.

Hello All, Many years ago I had a 1967 MK1A Tiger and sold it to a friend of mine that still has it (Will not sell it back to me). I sold it to get in to road racing which I still do. Recently I purchased a1965 Tiger from a person in Washington State (2nd owner). I have the resources to restore the car to a good fit and finish. I am making this post to see if some one reading this can pass on my e-mail address (fabbro@shaw.ca) to Marcus Steineger owner of a MarkII Tiger, Orange in color. I have seen it on the web site and would like to ask him about his car color. I have my race car so I plan to restore the Tiger for my wife to use. You know the little old lady that only drove the car to the store and back and went to church on Sundays. She has seen the car color of Marcus looking at the web sites and fell in love with it. So please help. Thanks, Kim

I recently inherited my uncle's car collection. Among his cars is a Sunbeam Alpine, Series V (Tiger?). Unfortunately, I live 2 1/2 hours away from my uncle's home. I saw that the cars were in fair shape (dirty) a couple of weeks ago, but when I sent some guys to bring back the cars, I was told they had been severly vandalized--especially the Sunbeam, and they suggested I sell them all for scrap iron. I do not know what to do. I don't know if the car is salvageable. It was my uncle's favorite--and I'd hate to think it was destroyed. Does anyone have any suggestions for me?

Hi I recently bought a wreck of a project vehicle - a mark 1 sunbeam Alpine. I would like to restore it and convert it to a "Alger" - ie as close to a Tiger as possible. Of course there would be no question of misrepresenting the vehicle as a Tiger etc - this is for my own use and enjoyment. My last similar project was a MGC damaged bodyshell that I bought (no other parts at all!) into which a Rover V8 engine and transmission was fitted! Does anyone have details of the work required, tips etc, links to a url? I have read some of the web articles and understand the basics - 260cu versus 289 versus 302, need to move the battery box and spare wheel, need to re-route the brake pipes, need to fit a strengthening bar from the turret tops etc. For info, ther is a published BOOK that tells you how to fit a V* engine into a MGB chassis (much simpler into a MGC body - much more space). Any assistance would be sincerely appreciated. Regards Peter

Hi there, there is a black tiger in South Africa currently that has been modified only to enhance performance, though has remained true to original spec. The car is currently pushing a power output of 425bhp, which is generally considered a bit over-powered. But I would like to know if there is any road going Tiger putting out this kind of power anywhere else in the world? There is only one way to describe this car. Awesome. I will forward pictures as soon as possible. Dave.

To all the members who turned up at the Rose & Crown, in Thorpe tonight, many thanks to Andrew for the invite, I enjoyed the meeting. I think my Alpine V6 was appreciated as much as I appreciated the ever delightful Tigers. Hope to come again next month if I am welcome.

Jensen Motors Ltdv built well in excess of 800 home market (HROFE) r.h.d Tigers and STOC knows of more than 550 cars. Many Tigers have been exported over the years and by this posting STOC is appealing to all international owners of HRO Tigers to email the Club with brief details of their Tiger - Vin, License Number and former British Registration No. It is hoped that a list of all HRO Tigers can be published on this site in 2005. Many Thanks in advance. Graham Vickery. STOC Chairman
