DUE TO CIRCUMSTANCES BEYOND OUR CONTROL, THIS LOT HAS BEEN WITHDRAWN FROM THE AUCTION

First registered in April 1969, this Capri 1300 XL is finished in Light Blue with chrome bumpers over a blue leather-trimmed cabin punctuated by wooden dashboard inlays. The Ford rides on a set of 13” alloy wheels, shod with Dunlop tyres and looks very well indeed. As an ‘XL’ model, the specification includes front and rear bumper overriders, twin reversing lamps, and a fold-down rear armrest. Reported by the vendor to be unmodified and mechanically sound, this Capri presents well and has been used and enjoyed throughout the vendors ownership. As expected, there are some age-related blemishes all in keeping with a car of its age. Under the bonnet sits a 1.3 litre Kent inline-four through a four-speed manual transmission. Showing 48,789 miles on the odometer this Capri dates from the first year of production and is accompanied by a history file including numerous maintenance records, sundry bills, service invoices, old MoT records, and the V5C registration document.

On its original registration number of ‘TUE 399G’, this well-presented example would make a wonderful addition to any Ford collection as well as a characterful and nostalgic weekend cruiser, perfect for visiting classic car shows and events.
