Sunbeam Tiger, 1964-67. It was Carroll Shelby’s idea to fit a Ford V8 into the engine bay of the 4-cylinder Sunbeam Alpine. The initial series was fitted with a 260ci motor, the second series with a 289ci V8. The cars were built for the Rootes Group by Jensen Motors and Shelby received a royalty for each one produced, having missed out on building them himself. However production stopped once Chrysler took over Rootes as none of their V8s would fit and they did not want to rely on Ford to supply them.
I recently organized all my fics so they would be easier to navigate. I have this same list on my blog, but I thought it might be good to put them in a post as well. I hope you all enjoy. Thanks for reading!
Jensen P66, 1965. A prototype Jensen coupe which was exhibited at the 1965 Earls Court Motor Show but never reached production, just two cars were built. Recently the only surviving example won Car of Show in the Classic & Sports Car Club Awards last at the Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show
You know, sometimes being a guest star on a long-running series isn’t much fun. Either the leads don’t like each other or they don’t care about new people coming in. That’s not the case on Supernatural. Jensen and Jared are like two peas in a pod but they make sure everyone feels welcome. They’re just such nice boys.
Dee Wallace yesterday when I told her how much I enjoyed her performance on the show.
