Description

This Tiger comes with a 1999 VSCDA logbook and was raced only twice in the late 90's. The motor was rebuilt and only has one race on it. I don't know of any previous race history but the car did have the massive flares on it when I first saw it (I can describe the flares in better detail). The Tiger is very solid and the pictures of the pans and underside should give you a good idea of how solid it is. I don't see any significant rust repairs but the flares and resulting bodywork might be covering up something. I've looked it over closely and the tub looks to be very sound. It runs very well. I installed a new Holley fuel pump, put new accelerator pumps in the carb (plus some gaskets and new float jets), and changed the oil. Motor sounds great and if I remember correctly it was running 12.5:1 compression (sounds like a high compression motor by the way it pops through the exhaust). Good oil pressure with no smoke, weird noises, or leaks (it is not the original motor, it is a 302). The brakes are up, shifts well and will drive. The rear end is locked and I think it has a Detroit Locker. Spares are limited to another set of wheels with Dunlop treaded tires, three alloy slotted wheels, and several new suspension bits. It is a real Tiger to the best of my knowledge. The previous owner did a lot of research on Tiger identification and he said he is convinced it is. It does have a Tennessee title. The previous owner purchased the Tiger in TN in 1996-97 and since it was going to be raced he never titled in his name. The car does have a correct VIN plate and the rivets appear old and original (pictured). I did drive the car on the track in 1997 and it was fast but needed to be dialed in. Brakes are inadequate, especially when they get warm! An online photo album is available with many more pictures.

History

Raced with the VSCDA twice in late 1990's and has sat unused since that time. Purchased out of Tennessee so there may be history in that area.
