MISSING TICKFORD CAPRIS

 

In my role of "Capri Archivist" for the Tickford Owners Club, I am
attempting to create a definitive database of all the cars.
 
This "Missing Cars" page will hopefully help to locate the whereabouts
  or identify the owners of those cars that have, quite literally
disappeared off the map.
 
If a particular car has a current MOT and / or SORN, then I am considering
it to be "Alive" and will be trying to locate the present owner.
 
I have tried to include a photograph wherever possible and must thank
Geoff Cochrane (Build 097) for supplying some of these.
 
If anyone browsing this website can offer any input at all,
I would love to hear from you.
 
I can be contacted in confidence at: info@a400mod.com

 

Cars successfully located will turn green:
 
             
 
Cars definitely scrapped will turn black:
 
             

 

In either case, I would love to receive information about previous owners
or any photographs you might come across please.

KJS 369
 
Private number plate on un-known Tickford build number
 
Can anyone tell us who this is please?

D270 WPE
 
Apparently this is another Turbo Technics conversion with a
Tickford bodykit - strange though, because Tickford would
normally never supply the blank front grille
 
Maybe there is a bit more to the story than first meets the eye?
 
Can anyone tell us who this is please?

Swaymar Capri - YRO 800X
 
Came across these photographs of a Capri that has the Swaymar 3-port heads
and plenum chamber, but it looks like an IHI RHB6 turbo and there
is also a 7th injector for fuel enrichment on boost
 
Running the original DuraSpark ignition with a MicroDynamics EMS-3 Turbo
Control System and a further unidentified box that may be the
controller for the 7th injector
 
It turns out that this car has nothing to do with Tickford parts at all.
 
The car was built for the late David Brimble and was based on a 2.8i Special
with an Allard turbo installation, producing 300bhp
 
Stories circulate about the car being involved with McLaren - the fabricators
of the intercooler and pipework also do work for the McLaren F1 team
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

KAZ 98
 
Finally, can anyone shed light on a story we are following please?
 
We have been told that at one point a scrap yard dealer in the Midlands
scrapped a Tickford Capri without realising how special it was.
 
Another version of the story has the scrap dealer actually owning
the car in Wolverhampton.
 
The registration number is thought to be KAZ98, but it doesn't show
on any of our records.
