Lot details Registration No: JJN502D Chassis No: B382002099LRXFE Mot Expiry: June 2015
'JJN 502D' was imported from the USA around 1990, at which point it was converted to right-hand drive and treated to an extensive restoration by Tiger guru and one time club committee member Brian Postle. The Tiger's original 260ci engine was later supplanted by a 289 ci unit, complete with high compression pistons, high lift cam, dual valve springs and many new or refurbished parts. The vendor informs us that the Sunbeam has been 'well cared for' during his tenure - ie 'regularly serviced, with parts being replaced as necessary'. He currently considers the V8 engine to be 'excellent', the bodywork, Green paintwork and (probably original) Black vinyl interior trim to be 'good'. He adds that the Tiger 'runs well, and pulls like a train with huge reserves of torque'. The car is being sold complete with new tyres and MOT into June.
