Tickford generally developed turbos (like the Capri in the background of the picture in the ad) but the this Metro appears to be a styling and weight increasing exercise.

What is the spec og the Tickford Metro?

Interesting. It asays that the Tickford was not turbo, but maybe they did a turbo later when it became available.

I really like it. seriously rare aswell

"Frazer & MG Metro
The first production run of the Metros done by Tickford used the Metro 1.3 as the basis for the Frazer, which increased the cost from approx. £4000 to £12000. There were only 24 of these cars produced, numbered 1-25, because number 13 was not used! As far as I am aware 22 were Silver Leaf and 2 Brown. The Silver Leaf cars were very striking as the silver darkens into a dark grey towards the bottom of the car. The Frazer had a full silver grey leather interior, which included the door panels, rear parcel shelf and the much modified wrap-round dashboard. Wilton carpets covered the floor and bottom of the door panels. The dash had a stack stereo, electric window switches and extra instrumentation along with cruise control. The cars were fitted with Porsche 5.5in wheels shod with 175/50 VR P7 tyres. The car was lowered slightly and fitted with a twin choke webber carb, gasflowed cylinder head with larger diameter valves, new camshaft and a revised inlet manifold, which raised the output of the engine to 80bhp. A full bodykit was added, within which were mounted 4 fog lights at the front and 2 in the rear.

The second production run used the MG Metro or MG Turbo as the base car. No modifications were needed to the engines of these and there was a full set of optional extras that could be specified, which could take these cars further up the scale than the Frazer."

From the ebay ad...."There is the original Tickford dash but additional dials have been tastfully introduced which include boot pressure, clock, volt meter and oil pressure."

I always wondered how hard my foot pushed on the gas pedal. Apparently he has a gauge on his dash that illustrates this...haha

Interestingly my new subaru has such a gauge. It constantly tells you, as a persentage, how much throttle you're applying. Bonkers.
