A body-off restoration was done on this Sunbeam Tiger.
And, on the wishes of the owner, the car was transformed into a rally car in the same go. The body was completely stripped and then reinforcements were added to increase the torsional stiffness. This was done very professionally and the exterior of the car shows no traces of the work done. The mechanicals were done at various specialised workshops. The works included revision and tuning of the engine, the gearbox and the undercarriage and fitting of power assisted steering. And most that was done to complete the transformation into this fully fledged rally car has not even been mentioned yet. The restoration file consists of hundreds of photograps showing that no part was overlooked and that the materials used were all of top quality. The car was fitted with all equipment that a true rally car needs to have. The total cost amounted to over 200.000 Euros. However, the owner of the car went to live abroad after the works were finished and the car has rarely been driven. Many of the original parts, such as the wheels, an unrestored hardtop and the chairs, are supplied separately, as well as some new spare parts such as four especially made shock absorbers and a complete clutch. The handling characteristics, the power and the noise of this sensational car will give the driver, and onlookers, goose pimples on their arms
