  Salmons to Tickford
This was patented and became known as the Tickford All-Weather style because of its instant adaptability; previously, passengers probably just had to put up with a sudden shower.
The Autocar, commenting on coachwork at Olympia commented that it was a "striking development of adaptably designed bodywork" and "this remarkahle body should be seen by all visitors." The windows dropped down into the doors and the supports hinged down inside the body; when erecting, the hood automatically locked in to them via spring catches.
During the Thirties, Salmons were producing batches of standardised 'Tickford' open coachwork for manufacturers such as MG, Vauxhall, Rover and the Hillman Aero Minx coupe convertible.

 AutoSpeed - New Car Test - Tickford TE50
And the Tickford TE50 is not a car that you would let a 17 or 18 year old son go out driving with his mates; further than that, it is not a car that many non-enthusiast men or women will be able to safely drive in slippery conditions.
Without traction control, the 5.6-series Tickfords are cars that would require a stern warning before being lent to a friend on a wet day; no such constraint exists with the Holdens.
So while in absolute terms the Tickford actually has good rear-end grip, in the real world of families and cars and driving, its lack of traction control is an enormous disadvantage.

And with the Tickford motor thrown in to boot - who could say no? Well, certainly not our man Andrew who has enjoyed the luxury side of life for all of 4 months now courtesy of this particular '98 model Fairmont Ghia.

Long story short, another "customer/ LPG expert" gave me a "flow control valve", showed me where to fit it, then instructed me how to "gut the stepper motor" on the converter, and said if that don't fix it, then a new converter is required.
