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.

Registered new on 18th October 1981 this very well presented example is offered in black coachwork over a tartan interior and looks superb. The coachwork is in good condition with very few blemishes and the period tartan interior is also presented very well. Purchased new in Nottingham the Capri comes with a history file detailing various sundry invoices, old MoT test certificates, the current UK registration document, and a current MoT test certificate valid until 29th September 2022. Ready to be enjoyed in the coming summer months.
