Default Tiger memorabilia

I have collected over the years a few Tiger items, just curious if anyone else has any unique collectables.

Huge decal I got years ago.


I believe this was the Subway promo.


slot car.


Johnny Lightning.


Print


I have some more items (models, ads, etc..) but they are all packed up.

The slot car, model and ads I am sure I have had for over 20 yrs now----some things you just hate to get rid of.

I havent collected tiger models, though always save pictured of them when they come up for sale. There are models by K & R Replicas from the UK of the Sportscar forum tiger, British police tiger, Mote Carlo rally tiger and MKII tiger. There are the AMT and aurora models and the "get smart" kits as well as landsdown, triang and johnny lightning. The scalextric model shown is a valuable and rare mode and in the last few years there have been LeMans tiger shells for sale that go ontop of the scalextircs bases.

As for my own personal collecton, i think my favourite Tiger memrobilia are my Orinal LAT rally jacket and LAT dealer pack with the folder, price list and options.

As for overall sunbeam stuff.. i really like the original Sunbeam alpien Series II factory tuning manual and S3 alpine factory options flyer i picked up about 10 years back. For some pics you might enjoy:

SII factory tuning manual: http://rides.webshots.com/album/239960975SWErVQ

SIV alpine FIA homologation papers:http://rides.webshots.com/album/569822484VRLUWw

LAT jacket:http://rides.webshots.com/album/579906989DhfIrC

S3 alpine brochure:

3000RW Lemans winnng Harrington (real car just went to the states a couple months back):

another LM alpine model:

MKII Tiger model:

If you browse the avatars, My Public Shoebox, Sunbeam mods albums you will see some intersting period photos and options etc

I have been fortunate to find a few old Rootes dealership signs. The round porcelain over steel sign is about 2 feet wide and is from the 50's. I think the other sign is at least that old as well. It has a heavy alloy base and frame and is double sided.

eric,
the best memorabilia of all is uncle wally's car that the sign is leaning against. of course one of those signs would look good in my shop. bring one with you in october.

as far as rootes/sunbeam items, i have over 400 original dealer brochures ranging from the 50's to the 80's and parts books,manuals and probably every book published. i have a china hutch in the house with all kinds of models, MK2 head light rims, touch up paints, emblems,nos rootes driving lights,fog lights, sparto reverse lights etc,etc.i have cans of rootes coolant inhibitor and nos instrument bulbs in rootes boxes. i also now have all the dealer brochures for the harringtons. plus collections of united items from 1980 to the present. we also have many water color drawings of alpines and tigers that were done by a te/ae member many years ago. we also have a panoramic photo from the 1992 united that has 65 sunbeam standing at each end of the photo. he was younger and faster then. the list goes on and on.

I hope your collection is insured with fire proof enclosures and detailed. Remember what happened to Normans friends details of Tigers. We all love the history of our beautiful cars.

Eric,

great signs, think i remember when you got the porcelain one, you certainly have some nice bits of memrobilia there.. and i know you also have a decent stash of cars, parts and other bits... hopefully one day i can see the sheds in person.

Default memorabilia

all of my brochures,etc that will fit in three ring binders are stored that way. the photos and drawings are hanging all over the house. it helps to have a wife that is a car nut. i do have an addition to our haggerty policy that covers all my parts up to 20K. most of the nos parts are in the parts bins in the shop, but some of the unusual is in the china hutch.
