FOR SALE
Quite possibly the lowest mileage Ford Capri 1.6 Laser with only 6,680 miles.

EQUIPMENT
Body-coloured grille, bonnet lip and light bezels, body-coloured door mirrors with driver remote-control, black painted bumpers with overriders, spoiler, tailgate wash/wipe, tinted glass all round, RS-style four-spoke alloy wheels, ammeter and oil pressure gauge, tachometer, quartz analogue clock, courtesy lights, perforated grey headlining, front reclining seats, three-spoke leather covered steering wheel and gear-lever knob, tilting/sliding steel sunroof. Factory options; Metallic paintwork. Dealer options; Ford front fog lamps, Clarion CRX56 radio/cassette, electric aerial.

EXTERIOR
This incredible special edition Laser was built as a run out model of the Capri and is beautifully finished in Ford Strato Silver metallic, (Code V6), a cost option when new. This example has covered a genuine 6,680 miles from new and the condition of the car is every bit as special as the incredibly low mileage. A bright polished shine and uniform finish looks amazing and the factory original panels are in superb order with only a very small ding to each door. Owing to light markings gained in storage, the previous owner undertook some light cosmetic refurbishment which was carried out professionally to a very high standard and nothing other than small imperfections are visible upon close scrutiny, most notable being a scratch to the driver’s door mirror and tiny marks to the bonnet. Originality seekers will be pleased to see factory ‘Laser’ decals, registration etching to the glass and the supplying Ford dealer number plates and tax disc holder. This is a truly beautiful Capri and a real show stopper.

INTERIOR
The term time warp is often overused but entirely justified with the interior of this exceptionally low mileage example. The ‘Truro II’ cloth trim, (Code XE), with matching door and quarter panel inserts is pristine and reflective of its 6,680-mile credential with absolutely no visible wear to the fabric. The colour matched carpeting and headlining are both immaculate and the dashboard is completely intact with no cracks whatsoever. All controls fully function including the two-speed heater fan and analogue quartz clock. A period replacement stereo has been fitted. The spotless boot area houses the original jack and unused spare wheel still with virgin Pirelli spare tyre with label and coloured banding to the tread. The parcel shelf is pin straight and untouched and factory stickers remains attached to the boot floor. An iconic and instantly familiar classic Ford interior.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The factory fitted 1593cc OHC ‘pinto’ unit with single venturi carburettor is famed for it’s robust and simplistic mechanics. The engine is quiet and performs brilliantly with a top speed of 99mph and 0-60mph time of 13.0 seconds. The engine bay is beautifully clean with factory stickers and plates displayed and even bright factory markings to the cam cover, long lost or at least very faded on most examples! The 5-speed gearbox is light and works through the gears precisely, and the clutch feels positive.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
This Capri Laser remains fitted with the correct RS-style four-spoke alloy wheels which are in superb order with no damage and defined part number and ford emblem stampings to the spokes, a feature lost upon heavy restored rims. Pirelli 185/70 R13 tyres to all four corners have plenty of tread remaining. The hydraulic dual-line servo-assisted front discs and rear drums stop the car quickly and in a straight line.

HISTORY FILE
Factory build records confirm that this special edition run-out model Capri Laser was built in February 1986 at the Ford factory in Saarlouis, Germany. Registered new on 1st August 1986 by Ford Main Dealer, Selwood garages Ltd of South Sheilds, this example has covered a fully verified 6,680 miles from new with just three keepers. First owner, Mrs Norma Wallace, owned the car until 1993 when it was sold to Mr John Chilton. After 19 years of ownership the car was then sold to the third and last registered keeper, Mr Anthony Rear.

The handbooks, guides, dealership literature and original stamped service booklet are present and the history file is able to verify the mileage with a collection of previous MOT certificates and invoices dating back to the early 1990’s. In May 2020 and at 6,390 miles, a documented major service was carried out with all fluids changed including brake fluid, gearbox oil and differential oil. At the same time a cambelt and water pump change was carried out with supporting invoice. Completing the history file are two sets of keys and an original Ford Capri brochure featuring the Laser model. Representing a superb and highly prized example of the final edition Capri, this wonderful 1.6 Laser is ready for its next appreciative owner and would delight any Ford enthusiast or collector.

MOT December 2021, HPI Clear.
