1952 Healey Tickford
Registration no. MXF 145
The Donald Healey Motor Company completed its first car in 1945, going into production in Warwick the following year. The firm's first offerings were the Elliott sports saloon and Westland roadster, both 2.4-litre Riley-powered and built on a welded-up X-braced chassis featuring Healey's own trailing arm independent front suspension. For a time the Healey Elliott was the world's fastest closed four-seater production car, clocking 110mph at Jabbeke, Belgium in 1947. In 1950 the Elliott and Westland were superseded by the Tickford saloon and Abbott drophead coupe, both of which enjoyed an improved chassis incoporating Girling brakes. They were more refined and better equipped than their predecessors too and, although heavier, were still good for the 'ton'. Production ceased in 1954, by which time a total of 222 Tickford saloons had been built.
This un-restored Healey Tickford saloon has been in storage for some considerable time. Accompanied by an old-style continuation logbook and Swansea V5 registration document, it is sold strictly as viewed and offered without reserve.
