Having remained unseen for over three decades, this Mini by Aston Martin Tickford was recently acquired by JD Classics, unveiling a hidden treasure that has captured the imagination of automotive enthusiasts worldwide. The special commission was entrusted to Tickford by a Saudi Prince, a prominent figure in the oil and gas industry, who desired a left-hand drive variant. Aston Martin's coachbuilding expertise was sought after, reflecting the significance of the client's relationship with the esteemed factory.

Tickford, previously known as Salmons & Sons, gained prominence for supplying bodies to Lagonda following Aston Martin and Lagonda's acquisition by David Brown in 1947. As Tickford became an integral part of the David Brown empire, focusing solely on Aston Martin, external customizing work was a rarity. This further amplifies the exceptional stature of this Mini conversion, as Tickford dedicated their expertise exclusively to the creation of Aston Martins.

This Tickford-modified Mini 1000 showcases a host of distinctive features that exemplify its unparalleled allure. Its signature stacked headlight arrangement immediately catches the eye, accompanied by a blanked-off grille and an imposing front spoiler that contribute to its unique and commanding presence. The interior epitomizes luxury, featuring sumptuous Recaro seats enveloped in opulent Aston Martin leather, complemented by an Aston Martin burr walnut dashboard. As a nod to the technological advancements of the 1980s, the car boasts a Clarion sound system and speakers, providing a delightful auditory experience.

During the visit of the Tickford Register and Aston Martin Heritage Chairman to JD Classics' Chelmsford HQ, a remarkable chapter in this car's history unfolded. Astonishing photographs, stories, and an original Aston Martin build drawing were shared, further accentuating the unique legacy and provenance of this extraordinary Mini creation.
