The Capri was unveiled in January 1969 at the Brussels Motor Show, with sales starting the following month. The intention was to reproduce in Europe the success Ford had had with the North American Ford Mustang. The European ‘pony’ car was well received by the press and an instant success with the public - a love affair that stills exists today.
Milestones are delighted to market a rare Capri Mk II Ghia manual (most Ghia’s were auto-boxes) finished in iconic Ford Diamond White with black vinyl roof that is in stunning condition – the pictures speak for themselves.
The Capri was purchased by the second owner in 1976 (invoice in history file) when she was just one year old and he owned her for the next 37 years. In 2013 the Capri was liberated from storage and a four year restoration commenced – a complete strip down and rebuild – by the third owner.
