Tickford is a name given to the custom coachwork of Salmon and Sons of Newport Pagnel, Buckinghamshire, England. About 300 TA Tickfords were built and there are an estimated 35 in the United States. After the MG TA chassis, firewall and fenders were completed at the Abington factory, the car was driven down to the Salmon and Sons shop. Craftsmen there attached a custom Tickford body, interior and top. The cars were equipped with a patented three position folding top, which is referred to as a drophead. Because of the clever top, the roll-up windows and a fixed windshield, the cars offered the convenience and protection of a hard top, with the thrills and excitement of an open car.

The TA carries a 1,292cc four-cylinder engine, producing 50 horsepower. They sold for 750 pounds, more than twice as much as a new Chevrolet.
