1965 Sunbeam Tiger (SA series)
This car is one of the 72 South African-built Tigers, prominently showcased in the Norman Miller book about Tigers. With just two owners to its name, the vehicle was originally in pristine condition upon purchase. However, a factory fault emerged during a drive from Cape Town to Johannesburg, resulting in a partial engine bay burnout due to a carburetor issue. As a result, a comprehensive rebuild became necessary.
Maintaining its original car number, this vehicle, identified as 005, also includes its authentic hardtop. Having spent most of its time garaged and lightly used, the car recently underwent a significant servicing.
