1950-1954 HEALEY Tickford specifications

1950-1954 HEALEY Tickford specifications Classic and Performance Car

Based on the Elliott, but more stylishly executed, the Healey Tickford is far cleaner looking and more appealing than the original, perhaps taking the car away from its competition roots and into more exalted territory. Dynamically, it lost out to the Elliott, thanks to additional weight and a loss of agility, but instead, it received a proper boot and glass (instead of Perspex) side windows. In the end, it outsold the original by two-to-one proving that Healey’s designs were good enough to warrant the premium.
