My Tiger is small and it has a Ford 260ci engine with a top loader 4 speed. I doubt, however, that it qualifies as a 'small Ford'
It is good for ALOT of grins!

I have an aquaintance that has a frame-up restored, V8 Sunbeam Tiger with a highrise Offenhouser manifold.....

BEA U TEEE FUL car!!!! He says he surprises a lot of the ricers when they try to get frisky with him! It's an unexpected sleeper IMO.

What exactly does a Sunbeam Tiger look like? Not sure I've ever seen one. Got a picture?

There was a guy in my town {Tom Curlew, in case my brother is wondering} that had a couple of Tigers.

The Poor man's AC Cobra!

How much do these units weigh, Twostick?

My 1965 Tiger weighs 2565 lbs. If you launch it right (not to much wheel spin) the front end comes up/ the 4 barrel moans/ the dual exhaust barks/ and every MG, Triumph, Fiat, Alfa owner looks sad and says "I coulda had a V8"

Always liked the intro when he caught his nose in the door...
MAN I love Tigers. I even prefer them to Cobras, don't know why. What I'd do for one...

I had a 65 Tiger once gang, and you wouldn't belive what I did with it! I was young remeber, I street raced it! Nobody new what it was and when I got it the 260 was seized up, soooo, I put in one of my 289's! G-60 14 tires and 4.11 gears in a 2300 lbs. car! Whew...did that little thing make a lot of money!!! I sold it to some Puerto Rican guys who also street raced it, but could never get the hang of the backwards shifter!!! LOL Alex

I had one...actually registed as Alpine(made from a wrecked Tiger) it had a 68 302-4Vwith a cam and headers...cornering was fine as long as you respect the power. Besides spinning is fun as long you don't hit anything. typical english car wiring though
