A mind-blowing Ford Capri 2.8 Injection Special with a remarkable 8,334 miles.
Remote control driver’s door mirror, body-coloured grille, lamp bezels body-coloured, power assisted steering, front and rear spoilers, tailgate wash/wipe, tinted glass all round, ammeter and oil pressure gauge, tachometer, quartz analogue clock, courtesy lights, perforated black headlining, front reclining Recaro seats, three-spoke leather covered steering wheel, tilting/sliding steel sunroof, boot light, instrument brightness control. Factory options; Black paintwork. Dealer options: Mudflaps, Ford floor mats, Toad A1606 Alarm.
This outstanding unrestored Ford Capri 2.8 Injection is one of the final cars made, and having covered a genuine 8,334 miles from new, this is without question an exceptionally special car. A cost option when new, the factory original paintwork in Ford Black, (Code A9), boasts a near flawless finish and deep mirror shine. The front displays a few small stone chips and touched in markings, entirely minimal and forgiven for such an original example. To further delight the connoisseur is the supplying Ford Main Dealer, Cuff Miller, number plates, mud flaps and tax disc holder all remaining fitted. All trim sections and decals are preserved with no damage from exposure to elements, and all light lenses are original Hella fitment with Ford and ‘Made in England, lettering. A super low mileage and beautifully preserved Capri, the jewel in any Ford collection.
An interior that must be seen to be believed and perhaps the most special part of the car. Entirely commensurate with the 8,334 miles covered, the interior condition is impossible to replicate and even extends to retention of the original Ford smell! The supportive Recaro seats in grey high-grade leather with ‘Strobe’ pattern fabric centre panels, (Code Q5), are spotlessly clean with firm seat structure. The driver’s seat upper bolster has some very light furring to the stitching as well as the near impossible to find removable back rest pads in matching ‘Strobe’ pattern. The door cards, headlining and trim sections are as new and the deep pile grey carpeting is pristine having been protected from new by Ford tailored floor mats. The leather covered steering wheel and gear knob are perfect with natural veins prominent, a trait of such low mileage. The factory fresh dashboard has no cracks whatsoever and all switchgear and controls are as new with bright white lettering. The factory fitted ESRT 32PS stereo cassette and electric aerial are fully operational. Originality seekers with delight further at service stickers in the door shuts and unspoilt pin-straight parcel shelf, as well as factory build stickers and foam insulation pads preserved in the boot floor. The term time warp is entirely suitable in this instance.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The Capri 2.8 Injection was the first offering of the new Special Vehicle Engineering (SVE) operation that had recently been set up in Dunton, Essex. SVE added a Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection system, an oil/water heat exchanger, viscous coupled fan and an improved radiator making the 158 BHP capable of 130mph and 0-60mph in 7.9 seconds. The fantastic engine bay is fastidiously standard with Motorcraft service items, factory plates and stickers and Ford wing stampings clear to see. A quality GES Ltd stainless steel exhaust with lifetime guarantee was fitted in 2014. The 5 speed gearbox is direct and progression through the range is effortless. This Capri is as close to a new car driving experience as you will experience.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The factory 7-spoke alloy wheels are unrestored with correct Ford badged centre caps and factory weights. Light aging is evident along with some discolouration to the caps. A collectable and highly prized full set of five Goodyear Eagle NCT 60 tyres have remained on the car since new with the spare wheel completely virgin with coloured banding to the tyres! The hydraulic dual-line servo-assisted brakes with ventilated front discs unique on the 2.8 Special stop the car quickly and in a straight line.
The very last Ford Capri was built in December 1986. Built in November 1986 at the Cologne Plant in Germany, this very late 2.8 Injection Special was registered new on 28th February 1987. The supplying Ford Main Dealer was Cuff Miller & Co Ltd of Littlehampton, Sussex. Clearly keen on brand exposure, the Cuff Miller branding can be found of the mud flaps, tax disc holder, number plates and document wallet as well as of course their supplying dealer stamp in the original service book! Just three owners from new are fully traceable and the first issue blue V5 has been kept.
A wonderful part of the history file is the two factory build and specification sheets. The document wallet holds all handbooks, operating guides, radio instructions and dealership literature as well as the Salesman’s business card. Furthermore, the history file holds previous MOT certificates, a service invoice for May 2017 with just 30 miles covered since and two sets of keys. A unique opportunity to acquire an iconic unmolested Capri 2.8 injection with amazing credentials and condition to match. One for the serious collector.
