Rare Tickford  at Scarborough

Unique Tickford arrives at the International Rally, 2004

A particularly rare and interesting attendee at the International Rally this year was this 4-door convertible Tickford-bodied Standard 10 from 1934

The handle to operate the folding roof can be seen above the rear wheel arch

These pictures prove that Standards in any condition are welcomed at our rallies

The rear seat has been partly replaced by a similar seat in blue

Instruments are being restored

These shots show the owner demonstrating the folding hood mechanism, still in working order

This Tickford is a local car to Scarborough and is in the process of restoration. The owner believes that it is the only 4 door in existence (until you prove him wrong) He is the ninth owner since the car was last on the road in 1967. Each owner has stared a restoration and  then given up, and in the process some items have gone missing. The current owner is however making more progress, having rebuilt the engine and restored the front wings and the engine compartment

I do hope that the recent good progress can be continued, so that we will have the privilege of seeing this delightful car on the road again some time soon.

I am aware that there are other cars and information that could be added to this site to make it more comprehensive, so if you have material and photographs, please let me know.  Please send me, Phil Homer, a message at: Phil Homer
