GO ON, YOU NEED ONE
WHEN WAS the last time you saw one of these? I’m guessing for most the answer is never. What you’re looking at here started life as a top-of-the-range Ford Fairlane that was then sent to Tickford Vehicle Engineering. The boys at Tickford then set about fettling and beefing up the luxo-cruiser, turning the knob up to eleven and, in doing so, transforming the Fairlane into a luxo-bruiser! They called it the TL50 and just 58 were built, making this a ver y rare car indeed. Slotted under the bonnet is the venerable 4.9lt Windsor donk, which pushes out a meaty 200kW and 420Nm of torque. I reckon this thing would be perfect for interstate cruiser duties; plenty of luxury, plenty of shove and a package rare enough to justif y the price tag to the missus.
