Tickover was founded on the 1st of January 1992 by the Tick brothers, Clive and Angus. Initially Tickover was a specialist Ford Capri only car breaker but soon moved on to include a full fitting service,  followed by a supply of new and reconditioned parts too.

Next came the performance modifications, upgrades and customising parts, which seems to be what Capris and other Ford street machines are all about. Many cars worked on at Tickover have gone on to feature in magazines over the years.

Now Tickover can supply mail order parts  from standard through to high performance for many of the older Classic and performance Fords through this growing website.
