INTERIORS

 

 
The ultimate interior - the original 1982 Motorshow car of course!
 
 
 
Build 002 as at 2017
 
New Wilton carpet, including side panels of footwells and door cards
New Kenwood speakers
 
 
 
Build 002 circa 1990
 
Kenlowe over-ride switch and warning light for the cooling fan in upper dashboard
(the Kenlowe switch is in the space where the rear wiper delay used to live)
 
Carpet on side panels of footwells (as on original 1982 Motorshow car)
Zemco cruise control mounted on light switch stalk
Zemco trip computer on gooseneck
Kenwood 2-way speakers

Build 002 - Original factory interior closely resembles the original 1982 Motorshow car
 
Full grey leather with re-worked ashtray to make storage compartment
Triangular crash pad on steering wheel and shortened gear lever
MK II Escort switches and rear wiper delay in upper dashboard
Electric window and mirror switches in upper dashboard
Fischer C-Box cassette storage in centre console
Non-Ford door lights
 
 
 
Build 002's speedometer, re-calibrated to 180mph with Aston Martin wings
 
The idea came from seeing Shawn Hickman's car (Build 008) and the
work was carried out by Speedy Cables Ltd back in 1990
 
 
 
Build 015 -  Speedometer and tachometer believed to have been converted by the factory
 
Speedometer is re-calibrated to 180mph with "Tickford" added and Km/h markings removed
Tickford wings applied to the tachometer
 
 
 
Build 019 -  Early build, with later 2.8i Special door cards and half-leather seats
 
Changes were commissioned by the car's previous owner, Steve Saxty
 
 
 
Close-up view of Build 019
 
Ford Strobe Raven Grey fabric (as found on the Granada L) was used for the door card inserts
as it was a close match to the Strobe Grey on the 2.8i Special seats
 
Carpet on side panels of footwells was added by Steve because he liked the
way it had been done on the original 1982 Motorshow car
 
 
 
Build 023 - Ruched leather with red piping commissioned by previous owner, Steve Saxty
 
 
 
Further view of Build 023's interior
 
The work was carried out by the trim shop at Ford's Dunton R&D facility
 
 
 
Build 027 - Unique factory-trimmed interior
 
 
 
Build 031 - Full black leather interior from the factory
 
 
 
Build 040 had the original cloth seats fully re-trimmed in leather and the door card
inserts in Alcantara by the factory at a later date
 
Also note the white detailing to the "Tickford" embossing on the steering wheel

Build 055 - The 1984 Motorshow car has a red and white leather interior
 
 
 
Build 082 - Grey leather seats with white piping
 
 
 
Close-up of Build 082's Recaro seats
 
 
 
Build 091 - Owner modifications
 
Electric window switches located on lower dashboard panel (near left knee) which
was strangely done on a couple of later cars by Tickford from new
 
Clock and boost gauge moved to a homemade panel where the radio used to be
Leather panel on centre console instead of wood veneer
 
 
 
Build 100 - Red leather and door lights from the factory
 
The door lights look to be a Ford item - the type normally used in the boot
 
 
 
Build 056 has a stock early-style interior with the electric pack option fitted and the owner
has tastefully added gold Tickford wings to the wood veneer above the glovebox
 
 
 
Build 040 - Aston Martin wings on the wood veneer above the glovebox
 
 
 
Build 097 - Owner modifications
 
13" Mountney Mahogany wood steering wheel with after-market gear knob and gaiter
Original Cobra alarm replaced with a Clifford
White dials with bright metal surrounds
Aluminium pedal rubbers
 
 
 
Build 097 is also unique because it has an electric window switch in the passenger door
 
Switches (ex. Mondeo) for the electric door mirrors are located in both door cards
Chrome trim and wood veneer around the door opening lever
Stainless Steel "Tickford" tread plates on the sills
Leather trimmed armrest
 
 
 
This close-up photo of Build 097 shows the electric window switches, again located on
the lower dashboard panel (near left knee) which was strangely
 done on a couple of late cars by the factory
 
 
 
Build 008 - Combination of factory and owner modifications
 
Early car, but with later dashboard (boost gauge and clock where radio was originally located)
 
Zemco cruise control (the control stalk is just visible to inside left of the steering wheel)
Carpet covering the side panels of the footwells (as on the 1982 Motorshow car)
After-market steering wheel and shortened gear lever
Two-tone leather seats and door cards
180mph Speedometer
Ford door lights
 
 
 
Build 008 - Wool headlining with electric sunroof and pod holding Zemco trip computer
 
 
 
Build 002 - Wool headlining and leather pillar trims installed by Protrim in 2009
 
 
 
Build 012 - Original factory option wool headlining
 
Subtle differences between factory builds again - Build 097 is trimmed
differently around the sunroof opening
 
 
 
Build 040 - Alcantara headlining installed by the factory sometime after production
 
 
 
Build 097 - Original factory option wool headlining
 
Subtle differences between factory builds again - Build 012 is trimmed
differently around the sunroof opening

 

 
Build 002 - Original factory pen holder........goodness knows why!
 
Photo also shows detail of leather edging around Wilton carpet panels
 
 
 
Build 002 - Boot, battery box and rear seat backs trimmed in Wilton carpet
 
 
 
Build 002 - Rear panel across boot trimmed in Wilton carpet
 
This idea was again, stolen from Shawn Hickman's Build 008!
