As an accompanying Heritage Certificate confirms, this stunning condition Tiger Mk2 dates from 1972 and comes in the classic Sundance Yellow and matt black colour scheme.
Between 2009 and 2011 the car was treated to a total nut-and-bolt restoration which is fully documented by a file full of bills and photographs. In sound condition at the outset, the car remains original in terms of its chassis and bodywork with the original inner wings still date stamped and intact. Mechanically it has been somewhat upgraded but using parts that were available in period.
The engine was built around a genuine 'new old stock' factory 1600 block to Group N specification with Skip Brown polished con rods, +30 flat top pistons and an MSM fast road cam. Other upgrades include a factory competition 4036 head, Aldon distributor, Skip Brown competition manifolds, Ashley exhaust and rebuilt Weber 70/71 carbs. A brand new quick shift 5-speed competition gearbox with a Skip Brown alloy bellhousing has also been fitted. Other features include uprated brakes and suspension, competition steering rack and limited slip differential. Inside the car benefits from a Springalex steering wheel, Butlers map light and high back sports seats.
Since the restoration was completed the car has only covered some 2,400 miles (the odometer being re-set to zero) while the Skip Brown engine has only done some 600 miles.
The car comes with a large history file from new including various original sales brochures, handbooks and servicing literature. In outstanding condition throughout, this exceptionally rare car (it is belived only about 40 survive) is far more exclusive than a comparable Ford Escort RS or Mexico.
