This was my college ride, a real Sunbeam Tiger. With the help of several friends, this car was resurrected in the 1980s, and served as my daily transportation for years.
The car originally BRG (British racing green), but was white when I got it. It had been badly repaired from a front end collision, but I elected to save it because I had always wanted one. Little did I know that it had been bent on most other panels as well.
These pictures were taken just before the last roadtrip, about 1998, where the engine self destructed from a dropped valve. I purchased a near new 302 crate motor then, but the car has been patiently waiting for that transplant in my garage for nearly 20 years.
