Condition of Car:
Classic Car Sale Status:
Ford Capri 3.0 GT XLR, Genuine UK car which does not look to have ever been welded. Fortunes spent over the last 4 or 5 years bringing it up to the standard it is now. I have known this car for a good few years and when i got offered it i had to have it. I look at lots of cars, literally 100s every year and rarely do you get something as tidy as this at sensible money. The attention to detail especially under the bonnet is superb. There are lots of receipts for money spent over the last few years but prior to that not a lot of history.
Body - Genuine and original 3.0 shell with all the correct strengthening plates in place. No signs of any welding being done and looks all original. Underneath was recently cleaned and given a fresh coat of gravitex as owner used the car regularly and wanted a bit protection rather than concourse underneath. Car had a full glass out repaint in Daytona yellow about 4 years ago and is lovely. There is no sign of any rust anywhere. Apart from a couple of very very very minor stonechips it looks superb and very straight. The owner wanted it to be a bit different so he went for the Australian GT look with the Superoo stripes. Easily removed if not to your taste but personally i think it looks superb and stands out from the others. NOS rear bumper fitted last year. Front bumper rechromed 3 years ago.
Interior - All fully retrimmed seats, new carpet, new headlining, good dash top. steering wheel . All guages work perfectly.. Still has original dash lower shelf, rear parcel sheld, original radio,
Mechanics - Fully rebuilt engine in 2018 at a cost of approx 3500. Steel timing gear, electronic distrtibutor, Original 4 speed gearbox which was rebuilt 3 years ago. Underneath everything has been powder coated or painted. Single leaf rear springs, monroe shocks, new u bolts, superflex bushes, 2.8 front anti roll bar . Power steering fitted from a mk2 capri which really improve how it drives. Stainless exhaust. Runs on unleaded. .
Wheels - Banded and refurbished rostyles with new 205 60 13 tyres.
As mentioned this car is superb and underbonnet is a work of art. It drives very well and was used regularly and was taken to shows as far as Luxembourg and Belgium.
