This 1967 Sunbeam Tiger MkII is one of just 536 produced in the final year of Tiger production. Known as “Number 10” for being the 10th Tiger produced that year, the car was sold new by J. Sargent Ltd. in Raleigh, North Carolina, in March 1967 to Chuck Crouse, who purchased it off the showroom floor equipped with a Black hardtop. In 1974 Crouse traded the car to Leith Lincoln Mercury in Raleigh. It was then purchased by John Felicione, who would later own the car a second time, during which he added alloy wheels and a Black hood scoop as pictured in the Shelby Club magazine from 1978. John then sold it to Dan Boult of Ohio.
Although the Tiger was then still in excellent original condition, in 1990 Boult treated it to an uncompromising frame-off restoration by renowned Tiger expert Scott Woerth of Christiana, Pennsylvania. The car was then essentially placed in storage to preserve the excellent restoration, until Boult sold it to Lee Padilla of Laughlin, Nevada in 1997. Padilla then placed the car in a sealed “air-bubble” storage container for another 13 years before becoming part of the superb Craig Brody Collection in Weston, Florida. It has since been recommissioned and mechanically prepared for enthusiastic driving. It remains in excellent Number One condition, retaining the original
sheet metal and the original drivetrain comprising a matching-numbers Ford 289/225 HP V-8 and 4-speed transmission. It remains as original, with all-original or factory-replacement parts where needed.
A confirmed Mark II with full history and extensive documentation that includes a letter by restorer Scott Woerth, the car
has long been well-known to the Tiger community. It was recently inspected by the Tiger Authentication Committee at the April 2014 Across the Pond British car event in Jupiter, Florida, where TAC senior members described it as the very best they had ever seen. A full 28 years after its restoration, this rarest of
Sunbeam Tigers presents in beautifully fresh condition and is ready to be fully enjoyed by its next lucky owner.
