I sent a question to the seller to clarify Tiger, since no Tigers were made prior to 65, or is a swapped v8. I got a reply:

"Its a conversion. The frame is alpine and the engine is tiger. Tigers go for 170,000 alpines go for 35,000."

I doubt (and hope) anyone will meet their starting bid. Not sure how reality will arrive.

Apparently the listing has been pulled.

It had to be a joke, late night I received an ebay email with three pictures of three different cars.
P.S I will sell my Series II for $35,000 if anyone is looking.

I will sell two SV's for $35,000. And I'll even have to go out and buy another one to do it.

Where does 'quirky' cross over into 'fraudulent'?

John and Ken .... That sounds like a great deal considering her response to my somewhat "snide" line of questioning. Here's her response and the pic.s I asked for. kelsepawly0 (0) .. ("100,000 no matter who owns it. Thanks for your message if you have any questions ask away.") .....

Interesting photos, considering those are three different cars.

Check this ebay listing out - at $115 its likely priced higher, on a relative basis, than even the Hollywood Sunbeam Alpine/Tiger.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Sunbeam-Alpi...FSVmvF&vxp=mtr

There are 13 people "watching" - I wonder if they are interested in buying this one or selling theirs!

This guy has been listing this knock-on spinner and various other heavily used alpine parts for the last year .. always high prices.. never selling.

I think it's a workshop in Melbourne.. probably found some old scrap parts and trying to make their fortune...
