Manufactured from 1969 through to 1986, the Ford Capri was designed by American Philip T. Clark, who was famed for being one of the main designers of the Ford Mustang. Using the mechanical components from the Cortina and intended as the European equivalent of the Mustang, the Capri went on to be a highly successful car for Ford, selling nearly 1.9 million units in its lifetime. A wide variety of engines were used throughout its production span which most notably included the Essex and Cologne V6 engines at the top of the range with the Kent straight-four and Pinto engines used in lower specification models. Although the Capri was not officially superseded by any Ford model, the second-generation Probe was effectively its replacement after the later car's introduction to the European market in 1992.
Originally registered on 1st May 1984, this Ford Capri has had two former keepers, covering only 44,000 miles from new and building a substantial service history along the way which even includes the original service book. Benefitting from new tyres, this outstanding Capri 2.0 S is finished in white with black/red trim and is fitted with an RS body-kit. Supplied with a V5C registration document, a current MoT test certificate and with classic Ford prices increasing significantly of late, this example is sure to provoke a few memories. Attractively estimated given the condition and mileage.
