The Tickford TA Drophead Coupe was bigger than the two-seat Midget and smaller than the four-passenger VA Series. The TA body was given high-quality coachwork from builder Salmons & Sons Carriage Works, which had a long relationship with Aston martin and at the time operated under its new name, Tickford. There were just 260 examples of these cars produced prior to World War II, and it is believed only about half remain in existence.
This example has been given a complete, seven-year, ground-up restoration, which was completed in 1994. The interior is done in walnut, leather and with Wilton carpeting. The body is finished in black acrylic urethane enamel while the bright-work is triple-plated chrome, including the wire wheels.
the current owner acquired the car in 2003.
In 2011, this vehicle was offered for sale at the Amelia Island auction presented by RM Auctions. The car was estimated to sell for $90,000 - $120,000 and offered without reserve. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of $112,750 including buyer's premium.
