Immaculate and rare Tickford TE50 now for sale. Located in Melbourne, Vic.
With Holden and HSV serving up some pretty hot Commodores powered by the Chevrolet-derived 5.7-litre V8, Ford needed a muscle car weapon in their sales arsenal. Partnering with FTE (Tickford Engineering) Ford delivered the Series 2 TE50 released in conjunction with the AU II series Falcon in 2000-2001.
At the heart of the TE50 Series T2 was the revised Synergy 5000 Windsor V8, hand assembled and upgraded with aluminium cylinder heads, a larger throttle body and a revised camshaft good for 220 kW or 300HP. The good old Windsor was able to deliver a 0–100 km/h eta in 6.7 seconds and 400m (1/4 mile) in 14.7 seconds.
The T2 exterior was revised with new side skirts bearing the TE50 insignia on the lower skirts and accent grey inserts on front and rear bumpers. The TE50 T2 also featured the Falcon XR's rear wing as standard and the new Azzurro 18-inch wheels were available as an option as on this car.
Along with traction control, the 4-speed automatic has ESS (Electronic Sports Shift), which was an Australian-production first by providing buttons on the Momo steering wheel allowing for manual gear shifting.
For sale is Build no. 47 of only 141 T2 TE50s produced. The car is recorded in the T-Series Club of Australia Register and is presented in immaculate condition with unmarked original Venom Red paint and the optional leather interior.
This TE50 has travelled 161,126 kilometres from new with nil accidents, no rust or repairs and with FTE Compendium, owners manual, log books, Tickford new car brochure and some receipts.
With full Victorian rego until March, 2022. Plates are not transferable. Available for inspection in Balwyn Nth, Melbourne. (Ref: 5837)
