I have been told that some ghia's come with the tickford motor in it, i have a 95 ford fairmont ghia (series 2) and most people i have spoken to about it have said i should have it but then a guy from work says that it doesnt come with ghia's only some do?

how can i tell if i have the tickford motor in it, i know i got the red rocket cover and also have the T printed on my head is that the only way of knowing or is there better?

as previously said it is a tickford engine if u have red rocker cover and the T stamped on the head!! trust us... you wont see a huge difference between a normal fairmont and the ghia.

why are u still not convinced it is a tickford motor?
