Strange Kit Car: 1980 Tiger Roadster

This next car comes from the other side of the railroad tracks, but that shouldn’t scare you away. Tiger is a long defunct kit car producer located in Redmond (Washington) that built a handful of cars that looked a bit like a classic Morgan. No wood on the inside, but most were powered with front-engine inline-4s from Toyota or some V8s (Buick and Ford) but today’s Tiger has a Volkswagen flat-4 hanging out back. The seller doesn’t include much information, but it appears to be listed for the twice the listing price of a strikingly similar car from March of 2023 found on Barnfinds. Find this 1980 Tiger Roadster offered for $12,500 in San Jose, CA via craigslist.
