Condition of Car:
Classic Car Sale Status:
1987 Ford Capri 280 Turbo Technics. This car is as nice as they come. Its a genuine car in every respect with only 2 previous owners and 54000 miles from new. The first owner Mr Clifford Golding from Hertford kept it for one year. The second owner Mr Philip Barbrook also from Hertford had it from 1988 until 2013. It had been in dry storage for a long time during his ownership but was sold as the owner had sadly passed away. The 3rd and current owner, again from Hertford decided to completely refresh the car and the work was entrusted to SM Classics well known Capri specialist. There are a few old MOTs and receipts with the car for work done. We do not have a service book as it could not be traced as the second owner is no longer with us.
The car was solid , totally original with no signs of rust, but the paintwork had picked up a good few storage marks. The decision was taken to completely repaint the car and whilst this was being done the engine was sent to Essex Engines for a complete rebuild. This is included the addition of steel timing gear. We have a list of everything that was done to it which can be provided. The gearbox and back axle were also rebuilt and upgraded at the same time. Willwood front calipers have been added to aid the stopping. Everything else was cleaned and painted as required. The underside was solid and original therefore was left alone.
The interior is completely standard and in very good order as you would expect for 54000 miles. The sunroof works as it should and the parcel shelf is spot on with no sagging.
The car still has its original and genuine Broohlnds Alloys which have been refurbished with new Avon tyres.
I appreciate this car is not cheap but I believe its one of the best, if not the best example currently available on the open market. There are none currently available with this low mileage. Please feel free to come and see the car. We have a ramp so you can inspect underneath. Delivery can be arranged if required. Please ask for a quote.
Any questions please ask or call 07879 557668.
Thanks for looking
