Restoring the Heart of a Classic: Frame Repair on a Sunbeam Tiger

Whether it’s cars, trucks, trailers, or dump bodies, our skilled team is up for the challenge. And yes, that includes classic cars!

The Project: Sunbeam Tiger Frame Repair

Recently, we had the pleasure of working on a unique and storied classic – the Sunbeam Tiger. This high-performance V8 version of the British Rootes Group’s Sunbeam Alpine roadster was produced between 1964 and 1967. The Tiger stands out not only for its sleek design but also for its powerful 4.3-liter Ford V8 engine. This remarkable car was partially designed by the legendary American car designer and racing driver Carroll Shelby, adding to its illustrious history and appeal.

Assessing the Damage

Upon arrival, our first step was to thoroughly assess the frame’s condition. Years of wear and tear had taken their toll, and rust had started to compromise the structural integrity. For a vehicle as special as the Sunbeam Tiger, maintaining the original frame is crucial to preserving its value and performance.
