1964→1967 Sunbeam Tiger Mark II
Not long after Shelby stuck the 260 Ford V8 in the Ac Ace, Ian Garrad of Rootes American Motors had Shelby produce the first Sunbeam Tiger prototype. This became the first of over 7000 similar cars which used American power in an attractive British roadster.
After the Rootes group approved production, Jensen in West Bromwich, England was hired to manufacture the car.
Three separate series were produced and the final used Alpine Series IV panels.
