Birth of a Tiger Project

This is where we found the car.
Stored in a barn.
Under some junk.
With no engine.
Covered in dust.
With a blue banner on it.
Junk inside.
But still fairly good to start with.

While on a recent business trip up to Speed Channel in Charlotte, North Carolina, we found a 1965 Tiger in a barn with a straight, rust-free body and a blown motor.

It was last driven in 1974 and has 41,000 miles on it. It also came with an early Alpine parts car and a 289 engine (not installed). We signed a bill of sale and left a deposit, assuming the guy doesn’t flake (which is unlikely), we are pleased to announce that a Tiger project car is imminent.

Here are some pictures of the car before we purchased it.
