Sunbeam Tiger 1 (1964-1966)
This is one of many illustrated classic car guides I've created for the community. I hope you enjoy it. If you wish to find out more about the classic Rootes car art featured in this guide please click here.
The Tiger made its debut in April 1964, with all the style changes already phased in for the Alpine Series IV, but with a 4.2-litre Ford-USA gearbox and a Salisbury back axle. Rack-and-pinion steering with very strange geometry was fitted, while the rear-axle movement was kept partly in check by a Panhard rod. Initially, all Tiger deliveries were aimed at the USA - British sales would begin in spring of 1965.
