The Donald Healey Motor Company completed its first car in 1945, going into production the following year with the Elliott sports saloon and Westland roadster, both 2.4-litre Riley powered and featuring Healey’s own trailing arm independent front suspension. For a time the Elliott was the world’s fastest closed four-seater production car, clocking 110mph at Jabbeke, Belgium in 1947. In 1950 the duo were superseded by the Tickford saloon and Abbott drophead coupe, both of which enjoyed an improved chassis incorporating Girling brakes. They were more refined and better equipped than their predecessors too and, although heavier, still good for the ‘ton’.
One of just 222 built before production ceased in 1954, this Tickford has been in storage for the past 27 years and is reported as fundamentally sound mechanically - the engine runs, the clutch works and the gears engage - and with its aluminium coachwork in good order. Finished in Jaguar Regency with cream leather interior, the car boasts a large-valve, high-compression cylinder head, stainless-steel exhaust and up-rated suspension, and is accompanied by a substantial quantity of spares including suspension parts, electrical components, hub trims, radiator grille, gearbox, dashboard, steering wheel and the original ‘head. Offered for restoration and sold strictly as viewed, it comes with much paperwork, bills and other history. No reserve.
