Marc Shiliro's Classic Cars
You're looking at another beautiful classic car listed by MS CLASSIC CARS!
1967 Sunbeam Tiger Mark IA - Sunbeam Tiger Owners Club COA #1005
Hello, I’m Marc Schiliro the owner of MS CLASSIC CARS.  You might recognize my name or my business name from the beautiful classic cars, trucks and motorcycles I’ve collected and sold nationally.  I’ve got over 25 years of classic vehicle experience and continue to learn more every day. I’ve learned a lot and I’m educated in many different makes and models ranging from the early 1900’s to current. I specialize in beautiful classic vehicles that are at a higher level of quality than most being advertised for sale. I only collect number one and number two condition vehicles that are already completed. We slightly redesign them, service them and detail them. I have also coordinated restorations from start to finish but don’t do this anymore. Over the years I’ve collected and sold over 600 classic vehicles which can be seen on the company website sold page. The vehicles are sold to previous customers, referrals and are sold from advertising on various websites, online auctions and live auctions. We’ve featured many classic vehicles at different auctions across the United States. We’ve had many vehicles that have been featured in multiple magazines and multiple websites. I’m proud to say that MS CLASSIC CARS has accomplished some great things with our vehicles over the years. People recognize value in our vehicles and doing business with us. I consider myself to be an expert in the classic car business and would like to put my experience to work for you.

The MS CLASSIC CARS showroom is located in Seekonk, Massachusetts. This location was established in 2012. The MS CLASSIC CARS service department and multiple storage facilities are also located in Seekonk, Massachusetts.  The MS CLASSIC CARS operations are closed to the public.  A private viewing of a vehicle can be made scheduled by appointment Monday through Friday.  The MS CLASSIC CARS inventory consists of roughly 50 classic cars and trucks that we own, service and detail.  We’re the only dealership in the country that services every vehicle we sell and documents it with an invoice. I stand behind every vehicle we sell.  Each vehicle is presented with a detailed description, 150+ high quality photos and a video.  We don’t offer consignments.  When you call you deal directly with me. I know each vehicle well and will go over the vehicle of your interest in full detail.  I’ll also assist you with any other needs such as trades, financing, insurance or enclosed shipping.  I promise to make the process from start to finish easy and enjoyable.  I take a lot of pride in this business and our reputation reflects that.  I appreciate the opportunity to earn your business.  “MS CLASSIC CARS isn’t just another dealer.  MS CLASSIC CARS is a brand.”

Marc Schiliro – The owner

I've been collecting classic cars and trucks for over 25 years now and have seen a lot happen. I've seen the hobby continue to grow not only on the internet and auctions but also with the amount of television shows, magazines and websites that are related to classic cars in some form or another. I strongly believe the classic car market is a great place to invest in. When the economy is strong, the classic car market is extremely strong. When the economy isn't so strong the classic car market holds its own. I've sold classic cars and trucks in both economic conditions. The reason classic cars make such a great investment is because people are crazy about cars, especially classic cars.  These people aren’t just one age group but all different ages ranging from very young to very old.  It’s a very diverse market.  I've learned it's not just people in the United States but its people all over the world. 

Over the years I've noticed that the higher quality classic cars have always commanded a higher price. Even people who don't have any classic car experience can recognize and appreciate attention to detail. Over the last 20 years the overall market has been very strong and I believe it will continue to grow.  Certain classic cars prices are on the rise and others are on the decline.  It’s all about supply and demand, not about a good or bad economy.  The classic cars that are on the rise are the cars that a lot of people want but there aren’t many on the market for sale.  The classic cars that are on the decline are the cars that a lot of people don’t want anymore and there’s many on the market for sale. Of course, if the car is a rare model and spectacular it will command a higher price as I mentioned. Desirable factory correct classic cars that are documented with matching numbers always make solid investments.  Custom cars have remained strong because each car is different from the next one. They each have their own character and there worth what people are willing to pay. 

Prior to this business I was just a blue collar guy who was working full time at Viti Mercedes Benz located in Tiverton, RI. They’re recognized for being one of the best Mercedes Benz dealerships in the country for customer service.  I was very passionate about classic cars and trucks so I decided to sell them part time.  Although I had my used car dealer’s license I didn’t have my own dealership.  Overall things were going just fine but my dream was to open my own classic car and truck dealership.  I decided to give up my full time job with health insurance and a 401K to open a new classic and truck dealership.  I had to invest a ton of money to make that happen which required using my family’s savings and acquiring loans such as a home equity line of credit.  I also took on a lot of overhead that I didn’t have before.  The bottom line is I went all in.  Do you think I would’ve done all that if I didn’t think the classic car and truck market wasn’t going to remain strong?  “I’m putting my money where my mouth is”. Thank you.

1967 Sunbeam Tiger Mark IA



This gorgeous 1967 Sunbeam Tiger Mark IA was the product of a recent show quality restoration and is equipped with LAT (Los Angeles Tiger) dealer options. The restoration was completed in 2020 and has less than 100 test miles. This is a matching numbers vehicle which is documented with a Sunbeam Tiger Owners Association Certificate of Authenticity No. 1005 that is included. The Sunbeam Tiger is a high-performance V8 version of the British Rootes Group’s Sunbeam Alpine roadster, designed in part by American car designer and racing driver Carroll Shelby and produced from 1964 until 1967 totaling 7,085 units. Shelby had carried out a similar V8 conversion on the AC Cobra and hoped to be offered the contract to produce the Tiger at his facility in the United States. Rootes decided instead to contract the assembly work to Jensen at West Bromwich in England and pay Shelby a royalty in every car produced. Production ended in 1967 soon after the Rootes Group was taken over by Chrysler which did not have a suitable engine to replace the Ford V8. Owing to the ease and affordability of modifying the Tiger, there are few remaining cars in standard form and this vehicle is one of them. A total of 2,706 MK IA’s were built between August 1965 and December of 1966.  This late production Mark IA was built in 1966 and sold as a 1967 model which was normal. This vehicle’s ID tag is fixed with its original rivets as the 2014 Sunbeam Tiger Owners Association Certificate Authenticity inspection documents. Most Sunbeam Tigers ID tags aren’t fixed with the original rivets like this example. This vehicle is finished in its original color code 108 which is Polar White. A limited amount of late production MK 1A’s were finished in this color as it was a MK 2 color choice. This car retains original California Black Plates which are included and documented with 12 California registrations dating back to 2003 which are also included. The car was purchased as a very nice driver quality matching numbers vehicle by a gentleman named Steven Bernheim from Studio City, CA in 2015. Steven immediately connected with well-known Avik Avedisian of A and B Racing to perform a complete show quality restoration. Since this is a documented California car and carried a lot of original patina prior to the restoration it’s possible some of the LAT (Los Angeles Tiger) dealer options were installed when the car was new or early on in its life. Prior to the restoration the vehicle was a rust free and never damaged. During the restoration process the entire body was stripped to a bare metal shell and a LAT 79 Fiberglass Engine Hood was added. The original hood was refinished and included with new stand. This vehicle retains all of its original sheet metal and has very nice gap lines throughout. The car was painted in its original color of Polar White which looks beautiful. The high quality paint work was recently detailed to a show quality shine. The white paint is complemented with a new black convertible top and cover. All of the original glass is in nice condition and retains the factory stamps. Everything on the exterior has been restored or replaced such as the glass trim, wiper arms, antenna, front grille trim pieces, drivers side mirror, Lucas headlights, turn signal bezels and lenses, front bumper, door handles, Tiger body molding, gas cap, trunk hinges, tail light bezels and lenses, rear bumper and emblems. The car sports LAT 70 15x 6 ½ polished alloy wheels with spinners that have a Sunbeam Tiger center cap. The wheels are wrapped with new Michelin Defender 185-60-15 tires. The original 13” wheels are painted with custom fabricated stainless original hub caps and Milestar Touring SE 175-80-13 white wall tires which are included. The interior was refinished in its original color of black which looks amazing. The interior space is surprisingly spacious and very comfortable.  Everything in the interior was restored or replaced such as the rear view mirror, black dash pad, wood dash, black Jaeger gauges, black Lucas amp gauge, black Smiths clock, dash hardware, wood steering wheel, door panels, door hardware, black bucket seats, seat belts, Bendix radio, custom O.E.M. center speaker console, carpeting, shifter with chrome bezel and leather boot. Everything in the interior is in working order such as the lights, gauges, horn, wipers, radio, heating system and clock. The trunk compartment was restored and painted body color. It’s home to the black front cover, black side panels, black trunk mat, full size spare that matches the original wheels, original jack assembly, two set of original tools with pouches and a correct style Specialty battery.  The engine compartment is highly detailed throughout with many correct style parts. The entire bay was painted body color and looks stunning. Everything was restored or replaced such as the hoses, clamps, grommets, washer bottle, clutch cylinder, master cylinder, heater core, radiator, etc. The car is powered by the original matching numbers 260 V8 that runs excellent. As the Sunbeam Tiger Owners Association COA indicates the engine number is #7011 B19KC.  The engine was rebuilt prior to the restoration. It’s equipped with a high performance camshaft and Edelbrock aluminum heads. The engine was dressed with a LAT 1 Super Tiger Super Induction kit which was an Edelbrock F4B intake manifold and Holley 4-barrell carburetor. During the restoration the original chrome valve covers were replaced with LAT 8 Sunbeam Tiger Valve Covers. The Holly 4-barrell carburetor was replaced with a new Quick Fuel Slayer 450 CFM carburetor. The original valve covers and Holley carburetor are included. The engine breathes through factory manifolds and a dual exhaust system with chrome tips. The engine is coupled to the original matching numbers 4-speed manual transmission and rear end. The undercarriage is detailed throughout with many correct parts. During the restoration the underside of the body was treated with black textured paint for durability. The steering components, suspension system and braking system was completely restored or replaced. Additional items included are a pair of sun visors, 2 tin Sunbeam Tiger advertising signs, 10 Sunbeam Tiger books, Tigers East/Alpines East Concours d’ Elegance quick reference judging guide for Sunbeam Tiger stock class with new binder, original factory accessories catalog, 2 Sunbeam Tiger 260/289 workshop manuals, Sunbeam Tiger parts list sheets, copy of original LAT dealer option brochure, Sunbeam Tiger LAT banner and custom car cover. Restoration receipts in a new binder and photos on a thumb drive are also included. This vehicle has been recently serviced and detailed which is documented with an invoice that is included. From the MS CLASSIC CARS Collection. 


***MS CLASSIC CARS only purchases number one and number two condition classic vehicles. We service and detail every vehicle unlike most classic vehicles that are currently being advertised for sale. MS CLASSIC CARS invested a total of $4,000.51 servicing and detailing this vehicle. This is documented with an invoice pictured below. We’re the only classic car dealership in the country that does this.  Please understand every vehicle needs something.  Some vehicles just need a lot more than others.  At MS CLASSIC CARS we take eliminate the surprises.  We’ll let the photos do the rest of the talking. ***


Unfortunately most classic vehicles that are being advertised for sale by dealers, private parties and auctions aren't exactly what are being advertised for sale.  This is an industry with no real guidelines and everyone's opinion is completely different.  The average consumer doesn’t realize classic vehicles weren’t restored at the factory and are being restored by people in their garages.  Everyone’s level of restoration experience is different and it shows in the restoration.  An example would be a classic vehicle that's  being advertised as an original model with matching numbers could be a phony with a reproduction trim tag and re stamped numbers on the engine block, etc.  Another example would be a classic vehicle is being advertised as a full restoration when indeed only a few things have been restored.  There are many classic vehicles listed for sale that have cosmetic and mechanical issues with such items as the body, paint, glass, lights, body hinges, gauges, window components, steering components, upholstery, engine leaks and tuning, radiators, transmission, rear end, brake components and suspension components.  The consumers are spending thousands of dollars repairing the classic vehicles they've purchased after the sale.  A bad purchase could turn into the buyer’s worst nightmare and be extremely costly!

MS CLASSIC CARS specializes in beautiful classic cars and trucks that are at a higher level of quality than most being advertised for sale. I personally have selected these vehicles and take pride in what I represent.  I'm not a classic car dealer who is only looking to make a quick buck.  I’ve seen dealers and private parties purchase classic vehicles at auctions and online and immediately list them for sale.  Most of these vehicles aren’t being advertised correctly and haven’t been serviced or detailed.  This business is my career and reputation which means everything to me.  I do the best of my ability to represent quality classic cars and advertise them honestly.  To be clear I’m not in the restoration business.  I represent classic vehicles that have already been restored.

  This vehicle is owned by MS CLASSIC CARS and is located in Seekonk, MA.  I personally have seen, touched and driven this vehicle.  This vehicle has been through a service and detail process which is documented with an MS CLASSIC CARS invoice.  I write the descriptions, take the photos, advertise them for sale and answer all the calls and emails.  I'll personally go over the entire vehicle and tell you everything I know about it.  I'll also give you my opinion if it’s truly the right vehicle for you. I’ll consider all trades and also offer financing if necessary.   Once you've committed to purchase a classic vehicle from MS CLASSIC CARS, I’ll make it a very easy process from start to finish.  Once the funds have cleared I'll immediately mail the paperwork USPS 2-day air.  A CD with the description and photos of the vehicle you purchased will be included in the package.  I’ll also assist in shipping your vehicle to its new home.

         If you've read the introduction tab or visited my website you’ll probably agree I'm a bit of a perfectionist and represent very detailed classic vehicles. MS CLASSIC CARS has a great reputation and we continue to raise the bar in the classic car and truck world.  I sell our classic cars and trucks very quickly because consumers see the value.  I look forward to working with you.  Please read my website testimonials and eBay positive feedback.  Thank you for the opportunity!
