The Tickford Capris were originally built in the Ford factory in Germany, before being shipped to Tickford in the UK to be rebuilt by hand to its full spec. Upgrades included a front-mounted turbocharger, rear disc brakes, Bilstein dampers and limited slip differential. Tickford Capris also came with a unique body kit, giving the car a much more aggressive stance. This one currently shows just 63,000 miles and is estimated at £26,000 to £30,000.
Developed by Ford of Germany with Group ‘A’ rallying in mind, the 1983 Ford Escort RS1600i coming to the September Sale is a much more serious version of the incredibly popular XR3i. More powerful than the XR3i, the RS1600i comes with a 1.6 litre engine with mechanical injection to deliver 115bhp. This hot hatch classic is estimated at £20,000 to £25,000.
The original pocket rocket, the 1983 Ford Fiesta XR2 Mk.1 came with a 1.6 litre engine which produced only 83bhp but could power the car to 60mph in just 9.5 seconds and on to a top speed of 106mph, quick for the time. The example was originally a demonstrator for Hendy Lennox of Bournemouth before moving on to two private owners. Estimated at £13,000 to £16,000, it’s covered 52,000 miles.
