Three Tiger projects and one Alpine - SOLD

Postby Syncro » Tue Sep 18, 2018 9:10 pm

This Tiger den is in West Melbourne, Florida and will be sold as a lot with local pick up only. It is being offered by the widow of the fellow who collected the batch. I am acting as her agent. I can arrange local inspection of the bunch weekdays from 8 am to 5 pm. I already have two Tigers and nine Alpines, otherwise I'd buy them from her.

There are 254 photos of the cars and parts here on DropBox:
https://www.dropbox.com/sh/8xkn6nzxu1rii7c/AAAfUJbYycU2vsxXSBKr7EJma?dl=0

There are titles in his name for 1155 and 3209. She can provide a copy of his death certificate which will allow the buyer to transfer them. 2852 and the Alpine have the signature of the sellers on them and are directly transferrable to the buyer.

The factory hardtop is NOT included in this deal! Neither is the Alpine overdrive, transmission, and driveshaft.

I reported these cars to Norm Miller and he confirmed that some of the components are matching numbers as noted in the photo file names. 2852 and 3209 were not reported to him previously. None of them are TAC'd.

B9473209 LRXFE has a SAL body tag and definite front clip from an Alpine. The back of the car has definite Tiger indications. It no doubt suffered front damage and was grafted together. See the invoices from Tiger Tom and others for body sections and panels.

B9472852 LRXFE has major body modifications to the front grille area and fender flares. The trunk floor was cut out and a non-Sunbeam gas tank placed in the hole.

B9471155 LRXFE was sandblasted and primed revealing rust issues. It has funky flares in progress.

Alpine B39501330 LRX seems to be fairly solid with at least one floor area cut out.

If someone is interested in making their cars “Matching Numbers” there are these components looking for their source Tigers. Per Norm:

“B382000744 LRXFE is the source of the loose valve cover 5841-B19KC.

B382000930* is unclaimed in my data and is the source for the valve cover and possibly the complete engine 5604-B19KC.

B382001417* is the source for the gearbox HEHE015238 and another unclaimed car in my records.”

Starting bid is $10,000 and the cars will be sold to highest bidder at noon Eastern Time on Oct 1, 2018.

No offers, so these cars will go on a 7-day eBay listing Wednesday evening Oct 3rd. Since you know what I think this is worth, now is the time for you to make a realistic offer before the rest of the world has a chance.

I went back to dig into the stuff in the Alpine and a couple of the plastic bins. There are labeled bags with emblems and hardware needed to re-assemble the cars. Two sets of new motor mounts. Another radiator header tank, two new rocker panels, Mk I convertible top panels, a ragtop with frames, and a tonneau cover. Roy told his wife there was enough there to make two whole Tigers and from what I see, he was right.

Also found the second windshield and frame along with a third windshield glass wrapped in those blankets. The new photos start with Tiger_Den_Roy_55 at the bottom of the Dropbox folder with now 270 pictures: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/8xkn6nzxu1ri ... 7EJma?dl=0

I appreciate the views. The shop where they are located has sold and the cars must be removed very soon.

Sold the three Tiger projects and one Alpine

Folks,
Thanks for the views. The Tiger den sold for $10k on Oct 4th. Now comes the fun of loading 'em up and yes, it'll take several trips. The buyer is about 100 miles away with a one car trailer and they are going to be under a roof at his place.
