1985 Ford Capri 2.8i Special. Car has only done 76000 miles and has never been welded. Currently motd till Oct 21. Paintwork will need attention as had a few diy touch ups over the years and bit of microblistering on bonnet.. We have the V5, keys and a couple of old mots but not a huge amount of history.
Body - 2.8 shell with additional strengthening from standard models. Underneath the car is very good with no signs of any welding in the past. At worst itcould do with a bit of a wire brush in places and a waxoyl / underseal / stonechip or whatever is your preference. Looks like original wings. Car looks great in the pics but paintwork will need attention if you want a really nice example. Their is evidence of a few diy touchups, chips and microblistering on the bonnet. All panels good and straight. Gaps are good. A proper paintjob would make this a cracking example with good miles and sensible owners -6. Sunroof tilts ok but only slides back a few inches. Dont want to force it.
Mechanics - Car starts and runs fine. Would probably benefit from a service as hardly been used in recent years and prior to 2014 we are told it was in dry storage for a long time. Janspeed exhaust has been fitted at some point recently. New starter motor. Everything else is standard 2.8 and in good working order.Heater fan foes not appear to work which is common on capris.
Interior - Good clean seats with no rips or tears. Slight bit of wear on drivers bolster. Crack on dash in the usual place on top. Drivers seat has the lift handle on the wrong side so i presume someone has fitted a clean passenger seat at some point. All guages appear to work. Good original door cards, headlining and carpet.
Wheels - 13" standard 7 spoke alloys with nearly new Falken tyres.
Very solid genuine old car which can be used as it is or if you attend to all the bits mentioned it will make a cracking example. Please feel free to come and see the car. we have a ramp so you can look underneath. Delivery can be arranged if required. Please ask for a quote.
