Ford Capri 2.8i Special - Exceptional Low Mileage Classic
This is a very exciting opportunity to acquire one of the very best Ford Capri's available, this three owner Special has been part of a significant Ford collection and is a collector's dream with only 13800 miles.
The Ford Capri was the Ford Mustang of Europe. A mind boggling array of options meant that the Capri could be whatever you wanted it to be; just like the Mustang. The Capri was, in fact, a far more varied animal than the Mustang with engines ranging from 1300cc to 3100cc as well as a myriad of trim specifications. The Capri was released to the press on 24th January 1969 at the Brussels Motor Show and caused a sensation. For the 1982 model year, a new sporty version debuted at the Geneva Motor Show called the 2.8 Injection. Power rose to a claimed 160bhp giving a top speed of 130mph. The Capri 2.8 Injection breathed new life into the range with the four-speed gearbox replaced with a five-speed unit early on and at the same, in 1984, upgrading to the Capri Injection 'Special' using half leather seating and a limited slip differential. Externally, the car could be easily distinguished by seven spoke RS wheels and colour-coded grille and headlamp surrounds.
This three-owner Capri was originally supplied by Page Motors (Epsom) Ltd to Mr. Joseph Hill with a final invoice price of £9,709.99. Having covered a mere 13,800 miles from new, the condition of this iconic Ford can only be described as exceptional. The black paintwork is of a very high standard and the grey half leather trim is commensurate with such a low mileage example. The 2.8 litre V6 engine runs extremely well with good oil pressure and the gearbox is very smooth in operation, she even sits on the original set of Goodyear NCT tyres.
We have carried out a full inspection and have carried out an oil and filter change, new spark plugs, coolant flush and a carried out a fresh MOT.
There is a lovely history folder containing the original sales invoice, book pack and service book, along with most of the previous MoT's other than when the car has been off the road.
Our vehicles are meticulously prepared and detailed to a standard that we are sure you will be absolutely delighted with.
We can also help you with a range of very competitive and flexible finance options to make your purchase even easier.
