For Sale is the 1972 Ford Capri 3000E car number 12 that F.1 Legend the Late / Great Niki Lauda drove @ a packed Wiggins Teape / FordSports Day race meeting @ Brands Hatch on Sunday May 28th 1972.

This 3000E Is The Only Known Survivor Of The 16 Capris That Were Raced That Day.

( See Our Other Adverts For Sean Connerys 1973 BMW 3.0CSL )

Model History - The 1970 model 3 Litre Capri bought cheap £ speed to the masses and in its uprated 138bhp September 1971 form, it had a top speed of 122mph and would hit 60 mph in 8.2 seconds, humbling many far more expensive cars in traffic light grand prix.

FordSports Day Capri - In early May 1972, sixteen identical brand new manual, black / red trim 3000E Capris, all with RWC registration numbers, were delivered to the premises of ace conversion company “SuperSpeed” of Ley St. ilford, Essex to be “ Race prepared “ to compete in the packed Sunday May 28th Wiggins Teape / FordSports Day Brands Hatch race meeting.

32 Top drivers of the day, inc the Late / Great, Brian “ Yogi “ Muir / Malcolm Gartlan, Colin Chapman / Emerson Fittipaldi, Graham Hill, Dave Brodie, Dave Mathews, Hans Beumhardt, Jill Fortescue Thomas, Journos Tony Dron and Jeremy Walton, Ray Allen.

At the race end, all of the cars had sustained damage and some of the 16 Capris were auctioned off.

Car No.12 was retained for exactly one year by Ford Warley ( it most likely was used as a Ford Management car or possibly loaned to a senior Wiggins Teape manager. On March 28th 1973, it was sold to an Ian Roberts of Beckenham ( Ian are you out there ?? ) and lead the life of a hard used / theft / accident / rust prone 3 Litre Capri.

It is a miracle that this car has survived and despite extensive research, over many years, car number 12, is highly likely the ONLY known survivor of the sixteen 1972 FordSports Day Capris.

Last on the road in the late 1980s. Its Essex V-6 engine was fully pro rebuilt ( Invoices to confirm ) some years ago, including the fitment of a Kent V-62 camshaft and it has covered little mileage since. Car is now dismantled to a rolling shell.

Included with the car are its Full owner ship history, Race Day programn, period race photos and some new repair panels.

Exchange considered - 996 Turbo - E46M3 CSL - Aston, SuperBikes - What Have You ??

This old warrior turns more heads than any unusable SuperCar and is ideal to add to your classic / performance car collection. £ P.O.A.

Serious buyers Only - We can project manage its restoration for you via Miklos @ CSLs Garage ( Face Book CSLs Garage )
