Classic Ford - - TOP TWENTY -

Sited just a few miles north of Coven­try, and orig­i­nally a mid-20th Cen­tury build­ing owned by Coven­try Hood and Sidescreens, it was bought by As­ton Martin Tick­ford in the 1980s. Tick­ford car­ried out many con­tracts there, not only for Ford, but spe­cial-bod­ied Sherpa vans for Bri­tish Ley­land, too. For Ford, in the 1980s, first they built Tick­ford Capris, then re­fur­bished most Shen­stone-built RS200 be­fore de­liv­ery, fol­lowed this up with the com­ple­tion of 500 Sierra RS500 Cos­worths, and ended by build­ing the Es­cort 1600E limited edi­tion.
