The Tickford-enhanced XR8 with its signature four circular headlights was a bargain performance package that took it to the streets as a great alternative to the HSV competition. Hard to find in this condition and for sale from our Sydney Showroom.
Tickford tweaked the 5 litre Windsor V8 to 170kw and added a tall 3.23:1 rear axle ratio. The Windsor V8 is a sweet, throbby engine and provides a good level of performance when combined with the 5 speed manual gearbox as featured in this stunning Le Mans Red example. Tickford also added the attractive body kit to the XR8 which includes the front spoiler, side skirts and rear spoiler plus the 16" Ford alloy mags currently shod in brand new Bridgestone RE003 225 50x16 tyres.
This XR8 is one of only 67 built in this combination and has covered a genuine 168,241 klms with log books, owners manuals and Ford letter of verification.
Paint and body are in exceptional original condition and still feature the original Ford VIN label stickers on the major body panels. The interior is also in excellent condition with only minor wear to the drivers seat bolster. The rest of the trim is in unmarked as new condition with original immaculate door cards, hood lining, carpets, steering wheel and crash pad. All gauges work as does the Air conditioning, original radio and power windows.
Originally sold through Sinclair Ford, Penrith, NSW, the XR8 has had two very careful previous owners. The XR8 has full NSW registration until January 2023. This is a super hard car to find in this condition and certainly a future collectable.
Located in our Sydney Showroom. (Ref: 5982)
