1987 Ford Capri 1.6 Laser. No Offers. For Sale
For sale is my 1987 Ford Capri 1.6 Laser in Red. MOT to 22/11/2020. Points to note before making any offers. Sunroof does work, it tilts up okay, but will not fully open. The current handle is broken, but I have obtained a replacement. Small tear in sunroof lining. There are a few scabs on the bodywork, including the offside rear wing underneath the rear bumper, bottom corner edges of both doors and the rear tailgate where it meets the window. Front screen has some delamination around the edges. All areas described are purely cosmetic. There have been previous repairs to the body on the front of the nearside front wing, the bottom edge of the offside front wing, offside inner front wing and the tailgate. The sunroof also shows signs of being repainted. There are some microblisters, mainly on the roof, nearside rear wing and offside C post. Very small noise from wheel bearing at front (was an advisory on last MOT) not yet replaced. There is no power steering, it has manual windows and a manual sunroof. There is a dent in the front bumper. I have got a replacement, which will be supplied to the new owner if I do not find the time to fit it myself. Positive notes - Only 2 owners. 1 lady from new in 1987 - 2019, then me. Full service history, loads of receipts, original Ford manuals, service book etc. Very quiet 1.6 pinto engine and smooth 5 speed gearbox (even after 172,000). Pulls really well, will sit happily at 70+. Cambelt & water pump replaced November 2018. Replacement heater motor and matrix fitted in May 2020, so the heater does actually work. Also fitted new radiator and coolant at the same time. Full service in Feb 2020 - plugs, points, condenser, HT leads, oil & filters, oil spray bar (often overlooked). Excellent interior - I replaced the old Laser interior with an undamaged one from a Capri LS - front & rear seats, door cards and rear quarter panels. I still have the original Laser interior if the new owner wants it for originality, although the driver's seat will need repair. Uncut parcel shelf. All carpets in very good condition, with Laser carpet mats too. Original Ford radio/cassette, but cassette player not working. Uncracked Dash. Excellent original RS alloys, with matching Firestone tyres, including the spare. Original VV carb. The auto choke is a bit hit & miss (but they always were). A new old stock manual choke conversion kit will come with the car if you want it. I use this as my daily runner so mileage will go up. To sum up, this is a sound and solid car, it's an 80's Ford so there will be some corrosion, and the MOT history checker will provide details of repairs carried out previously. It's not a show car, but be prepared for lots of smiles , waves, thumbs up and comments from people. You will get lots of attention. You can't be the shy retiring type in this car. I would strongly advise viewing in person, as my opinion and description may not match yours. Car is in north Manchester, 5 minutes from junction 17 M60. Any questions? Want to view? Feel free to call me. Serious enquiries only please, no dreamers. I have my bucket list of cars yet to own, and I'm ready to get my next one. So I would be interested in a part ex/swap with cash either way for one of the following, but must be in roadworthy condition, I do not have the technical ability or facilities to consider a renovation. Ford Capri 2.8/3.0 Rover SD1 3.5 manual or auto. Daimler 250 V8 Ford Sierra XR4i/XR4X4 Jaguar 420/Sovereign (60's model). Jaguar/Daimler XJ6 (short wheel base to fit in the garage). Jaguar XJ-SC 3.6 (I have a V12 XJ-S, so I don't need another). Ford Cortina MK2 Ford Cortina MK3 GXL/2000E. Mercedes SLC (pre 1990). Triumph Stag 3.0 or 3.5 V8. Triumph TR7/TR8 So if you have one of these, or even something you consider to be of interest to me, then please contact me to discuss. Must be pre 1990 for classic car insurance purposes. Payment by cash or Bank Transfer on completion of sale. It's a 33 year old car, so no warranty or guarantees given.
