Fairthorpe TX 1

1965 to 1966 

Although offered for sale the TX 1 was pretty much a prototype for what was to become the TX GT. The price at the time was 1,175 before purchase tax. 

Designed by Torix Bennett the car incorporated a patented rear suspension using transverse rods and trailing links. Based around a Triumph GT6 chassis the TX 1 used either Triumph or Ford Cortina GT power. 

A high quality finish for it's day the TX range got good press. Bodywork was fibreglass and finish and build quality was said to be good. The TX 1 was short lived and superseeded by the TX GT and TX S and TX SS.
