Evaluation: Restored in original colors with a performance-built engine. Tidy engine bay and underbody. Older respray with numerous small scratches, chips, and blisters, but nothing that couldn’t be ignored and left alone. Older chrome. Newer wheels. Clean interior that looks fully or at least mostly redone. A usable Tiger with a few tasteful upgrades.
Bottom Line: Went on Bring a Trailer last December but stayed unsold at a lackluster $47,250 high bid. The more generous winning bid in Houston is on the modest side for a solid Tiger with a hardtop, considering the sound condition, performance upgrades, and new wide tires and wheels. Although prices have been softening somewhat for these cars after their big surge a few years ago, this result is ahead of the curve and a decent bargain for the new owner.
