The Ford Consul Capri was launched in 1961 and was the first European market Ford to bear the Capri name. The Ford Consul Capri is a two-door coupé version of the Consul Classic and was available from 1961 until 1964. In February 1963, the GT version was announced.
The sleek lines of this rare Consul Capri perfectly showcase its dark green paintwork. Complemented by a two-tone interior this Ford has a design that still looks fresh today but must have been way ahead of its time for 1963. We are informed that these stunning looks are matched by the cars fun factor when driven. This Consul Capri is now fitted with a 2.0 litre Pinto engine and a five-speed gearbox, offering brisk performance with retro aesthetics, which are further enhanced by Mini-Lite style wheels. Offered to auction with a V5C registration certificate this Capri is sensibly estimated given the huge popularity that all Ford models have enjoyed in recent years.
