Evaluation: Sold new in Quebec in Polar White. Repainted in British Racing Green two years ago. The paint and chrome look fresh. So does the engine. It has no sign of use, and what appear to be all new wires and hoses. Beautiful interior, too. Lovely car with good equipment.
Bottom Line: In 1967, after Chrysler had bought the Rootes Group and the writing was already on the wall for the Ford-engined Tiger, Sunbeam extensively revised it to have the 289 engine it probably should have had all along, giving a sizable bump in speed from the 260 in the earlier Mk I and Mk IA. Fewer than 800 genuine Mk II Tigers were built compared to 6400 260s, so that extra 29 cubic inches doesn’t just translate to extra performance. It also translates to a bigger price, about an extra 50 or 60 grand.
Tiger prices have been relatively stable lately, and this decent price for a decent example suggests they’re about where they should be.
