A fabulous E Registration Ford Capri 2.8 Injection with three owners from new.

EQUIPMENT
Remote control driver’s door mirror, body-coloured grille and door mirrors, lamp bezels body-coloured, bodyside mouldings and tape stripe with Injection decal, 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, steel sunroof, Ford ESRT 32PS stereo cassette, electric aerial, boot light, instrument brightness control.

EXTERIOR
This fantastic Ford Capri, one of the last ever examples to be registered in the UK is finished in Ford Diamond White, (Code B3). The super clean paint finish has a bright uniform shine and all panels are straight with even gaps. Structurally perfect, the underside is very clean and the low mileage and cosseted ownership are clearly evident. Some remedial paintwork has previously been carried out to a high standard in order to uphold the spectacular appeal of this car. All exterior trim items, rubbers and decals are in excellent order and hard to source fitments such as the rubber spoiler and colour coded front grill are pleasingly immaculate. Even the supplying dealer branded number plates with matching registration etched glass remain. The original Ford dealer rear screen sticker and tax disc holder further the appeal of this beautifully preserved example of a Ford icon.

INTERIOR
The interior of this 2.8 Injection looks and feels fantastic with grey high-grade leather and ‘Strobe’ pattern fabric centre panels, (Code Q5). The supportive and comfortable Recaro seats are in excellent condition with only very mild discolouration to the leather on the driver’s seat upper bolster. The deep pile grey carpeting is unmarked and the black perforated headlining unique to the 2.8 Injection is perfect. The leather covered steering wheel and matching gear knob are in beautiful unworn order, commensurate with the genuine mileage covered. The dashboard has suffered only three thin cracks which are noticeable upon close inspection. All controls function faultlessly including the two-speed heater fan and analogue quartz clock. The original factory fit Ford push button radio remains in situ and fully functional, as does the electric aerial. A very clean and unmolested Ford Capri interior, simply wonderful.

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 these models 158 BHP capable of 130mph and 0-60mph in 7.9 seconds. The engine is smooth and quiet and yet produces an intoxicating roar on demand! A professionally detailed engine bay allows for bonnet up exhibiting and factory plates, stickers and component labels are present. The 5-speed gearbox is light and progression through the range is precise.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
This Capri is fitted with the factory original 7-spoke alloy wheels with correct Ford badged centre caps. Very minor tarnishing and scratches to the outer rims are visible upon close scrutiny and the Ford centre cap badges have dulled. The wheels are shod in matching tyres of size 205/60 R13 tyres with plenty of tread remaining. 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.

HISTORY FILE
This fantastic Ford Capri 2.8 Injection, a very late registered example on a rare E prefix has had just three keepers from new. The supplying Ford Main Dealer, Maidenhead Autos, registered the car on 1st August 1987 and supplied the car to first owner J & A Electrics of Uxbridge who kept the car for an incredible 18 years! Just two further keepers, both members of the Capri Owners Club, have cherished the car ever since. The previous owner embarked on a recent 3,000-mile tour of Italy on which he reported the car to have performed perfectly. The huge history file contains vast collection of receipts and invoices from specialist suppliers including The Capri Club along with almost every MOT dating back to the very first in 1990. Recent expenditure includes a replacement clutch and the use of Evans waterless coolant has been adopted. This comprehensive history file includes the original Ford handbooks and guides enables the reader to fully track and document the low 60,419 miles covered.

Rarely does such a warranted mileage, low owner and beautifully clean Ford Capri come to light and just as KGF Classic Cars sold the car to the previous owner in 2015, we are privileged to offer this stunning late production example to the next discerning enthusiast.

MOT July 2021, HPI Clear.
