Product Description

This book chronicles the history and development of the various “Tickford” versions of the Ford Motor Company of Australia’s range of cars until the year 2000 model.

Tickford Vehicle Engineering Pt Ltd (TVE), was a joint venture between the English company Tickford Ltd and Ford in Australia. Established to challenge the performance cars from Holden Special Vehicles, TVE produced the Falcon XR6 and XR8. While not as extreme as the Holdens but nonetheless quickly carved out a sizeable and very profitable niche market for Ford.

In addition, the book covers the racing activities Ford Tickford Racing during the same period and investigates the developing of the racing versions of the Falcon for Glenn Seton, Neil Crompton and others.
