It's a Tickford?

Do you mind if I ask it's reg out of curiosity? Doesn't end in OHP by any chance?

That looks suspiciously like an 820 Turbo Matt! Complete with half of the OE TWR Turbo bodykit and correct alloys. Have you got the rest of the front end? :wink: :D

Those wheels are rare aren't they?

I understand this car has had a lot of work done in prep for a rebuild, and that Mat intends to finish the work to a high standard over time.

yes guys, if i didn't buy it when would you see one again for sale, needs work, busted screen, engine in parts, needs paint, etc etc etc, but no problems in the long run, if you don't buy em now, one day they will be all the money, and you will have missed your chance, which i wasn't going to gamble on, as wanted a tickford for a long time now.

Congratulations. Though I'm sure somebody would have bought it all the same as a project. Just a matter of time.

And your driveway! ;) :D

Seriously though Matt, a very nice find and well done for rescuing it - looking forward to the project thread on it now!
