A collaboration between Carroll Shelby and the Rootes Group, the Sunbeam Tiger epitomizes the notion of a “big engine in a small car”. Based on the moderately successful Sunbeam Alpine, the Tiger featured either a Ford 260 cubic inch V8 (MKI) or 289 cubic inch V8 MKII) shoe-horned into the narrow engine bay. To say that there was no wasted space under the bonnet of a Tiger would be understatement in the extreme. The heavier and longer V8 power plant required a bit of set back to achieve a reasonable fore-to-aft weight distribution as well as an upgrade to the rear end but, other than those modifications, the Sunbeam was largely the same as its predecessor in both fit and finish.
