Have they sold any?

Well i see a market for it, i mean a Long wheel base model with 250kw surely ain't bad. BTW i haven't seen a piccie or anything of the TL-50 Series III.

The TL50 (shyte name) didn't get the makeover that the TE/TS did.

Hmm, not many being sold, but it's good to see a lwb model that's more than just a Fairlane or LTD. I say keep it, even if sales are very low. It's about having the option, and if it isn't there what's the best LWB you can get? LTD? No thanks!

Looks pretty nice in my opinion, sheez it'd look 1000's times better with a small decklid spoiler. Still looks good, front end is tops.

Agreed.. Sounds shyte. Fairlane by Tickford sounds better to me.

I think it should stay. If I had the brass I'd have no problems at all handing over the cash for one as the luxo cruiser. It's all about the options..

I agree that it should stay. Look at it, it looks great.

There were no plans for large volumes to be sold anyway so it should stay. Regarding the name, Fairlane by Tickford or Tickford Fairlane would be more recognised but then again it may cause confusion with the uneducated buyers when compared to the normal Fairlane/ LTD.
