[server6.theimagehosting.com] it is in very rough condition but it is also a real sunbeam tiger with the origional ford 260 c.i. engine sale pending, i want to restore this car close to original but i really like the front suspension on bob hokanson's tiger. thanks for any help mark... also this car has been sitting for 13 plus years and as you can see needs a full restoration, my next project if the sale goes through

Good luck Mark. Tiger's are great cars & going up in value. You definitely have a project in front of you though... be sure to keep up with progress in the journal section so we can watch it progress!

Congrats... can't wait to see it cleaned up a bit so the work is more visible. It's going to be a fun project.

thanks guys!! i'll post some more pics. in the project section very soon. i finally got it off the trailer, the brake shoe retainer clips came off and the shoes were glued (so it seemed) to the drum but i got the drums off and removed the brake shoes so i can roll it around. the trans. will shift now through all the gears but reverse is a little hard to get it in and out of gear, i'll pull the spark plugs tomorrow squirt in some oil and see if the engine will turn over (hopefully it will).
