Specs: famous for their power and handling, all of the Tigers were fitted with a single Ford two barrel carburetor, a single dry plate hydraulically operated clutch, the Ford V8 fitted to the Tiger produced 164 bhp @ 4400 rpm, sufficient to give the car a 0–60 mph time of 8.6 seconds and a top speed of 120 mph, performance in the  handling featured the Girling manufactured front disc brakes anddrums in the rear, the suspension was independent at the front, using coil springs, the rear had a live axle and semi-elliptic springs with the Panhard rod to better locate the rear axle, stiff front springs,

Costing notes: starting in 2020, the costings to build and restore classic cars is climbing, we are faced with limited parts supply from the orient today, many USA factories are closed, even when we can find our top quality parts, paints and tires, these prices are way higher, shipping is higher, our staff takes serious health precautions in our shop to protect themselves, insurance is expensive, going forward…Fraser Dante will keep up our top quality but forced to raise our prices with the big nut we have today, sample of recent repaint photos (LINK),

Summary: the final updating show work with new photos and testing completed for Spring 2021, very rare and documented, just a striking presentation, this is really great fun to drive and a serious investment piece, very well offered at $89,950
