SUMMARY

Cut short in its prime by an engine fire, this fabulous Tickford Turbo Capri has been returned to spectacular form, like a Phoenix arising from the ashes.

DESCRIPTION

  • Developed by Aston Martin Tickford Ltd., the Tickford Turbo Capri was based on a standard Mk III Capri 2.8 Injection
  • Visually distinguished by the lift-reducing GRP mouldings on the nose, flanks and tail, the fixed-head was credited with a 0.37 drag coefficient
  • Reworked with the addition of an IHI turbocharger and Garrett intercooler, its 2,792cc Cologne V6 generated 205bhp and 260lb/ft of torque, offering 0-60mph in 6.0 seconds and 140mph
  • This example is very well known car indeed within the Tickford community and superbly presented in gleaming Diamond White with an unmarked Grey Recaro interior
  • Purchased by our vendor in 2019 after an engine fire whilst driving, the car underwent a total rebuild that spanned three years
  • The shell was completely taken back to bare metal. New metal and panels fitted where required and treated to a number of coats of that special Pearlescent White paint
  • It's believed that in excess of £50,000 has been invested on bringing this rare Tickford back from its early demise and it's now 'new-pin' ready
  • The engine, although having only covered some 42,000 miles, was also completely rebuilt and a new wiring loom fitted at the same time
  • The underside has benefitted from a complete refurbishment, as can be seen from our images
  • This remarkable Capri will also be featured in Classic Ford  magazine due out on Match the 16th, further enhancing its exposure
