1985 Beautiful Rust free Example with only 60k & Service history For Sale
In completely standard form this engine with only 60,000 original and genuine miles runs as sweetly as an expensive watch and starts on the first turn of the key.
It is in standard state of tune and will suprise you with how nice it feels and how much torque is available.
Not one to push you in your seat this does however feel very evenly matched to the weight of the car and can push you along quite nicely when asked of it and is pretty polite when it comes to taking a sip of fuel.
Having never been welded underneath it is hard to find such a nice Capri at this budget but we feel this car is a really nice and straight example of the breed.
Is there a better looking coupe at sensible money? No we think Capris are looking better with each day that passes.
The door bottoms are free from any corrosion as is the inner wings and bootfloor. It has a factory sunroof fitted and really looks the part in its very rare and desirable "Nimbus Grey" paintwork.
All decals are present and correct with only minor defects to the decals themselves they are in remarkably good condition.
The cars overall condition would be classed as exceptional for the year but not a show winner.
This is a car that can be polished on a Sunday and taken for a drive to show off why Capris with their long bonnets and exotic looks are now more relevant than they ever have been.
The interior is in excellent condition finished in the ‘Truro II’ cloth trim (code XE) with matching door and quarter panel inserts. The original material to the seats is spotless and remarkably wear free and the colour matched carpeting and headlining are both clean and free from discoloration.
The carpets are free from stains and are in excellent condition and are of a quality you will not see in a chinese built supermini of the current era.
When sat in a Capri you feel at one with the car, it feels sporty , it feels like a "CAR" it feels mechanical and it feels great!
There is a standard Ford Radio fitted but cleverley brought upto 2018`s standards with an ipod or MP3 Aux in facility so you can play your tracks through the radio. Of course you will be playing ELO or Fleetwood Mac as we would be disappointed if you didn`t.
There is the rear parcel shelf fitted which is working but has a bit of wear.
The controls and switches are all working as they should and the heater blows nice cool or hot air just like cars used to and no fuss unlike the over complicated climate control systems of today.
The dials are not the brightest when in the dark as per the usual 1980`s Ford dimly lit dashboard ,but you can still see what you need to see.
Overall a lovely cossetting place to sit and far more stylish, comfortable and sporty than any 1980`s Ford has any right to be.
Not the fire breathing monster the 2.8i can be, however this little 1600 Laser more than holds its own, if you value linear, uncorrupt steering with a beautiful feel of the road through the perfectly shaped 3 spoke steering wheel then you are in for a treat. The same applies to the gearbox, With a swift action, light , positive in its actions there really has been no advancement in the modern motorcar in this vital connection with a cars heart.
You change gear in this car because you want to not because you need to, its the same with the overall drive. I had never driven a Capri before this one and can assure you it certainly is an eye opening drive when you consider the cars humble origins.
The ride is comfortable but never floaty and the car communicates to you with every word sent to you through your fingertips.
If this car could drive over brail then you would understand the sentence through the wheel it is that good.
As is usual the yearly road tax cost is £245

This Capri has a fully stamped Ford service book and was last serviced at a Ford main dealer in June 2017 at 60,032 miles.
We have the current V5 and the old style V5, it has majority of old Mot`s and plenty of receipts etc.
The Mot`s back up the very low mileage so you can be assured of this cars provinence.
Standard Capri Laser brakes are well up to the job of stopping this car. She brakes in a straight line and all Discs and pads etc have plenty of life left in them and work just as Ford intended.
Overall a fantastic example and an appreciating asset. Please call or email to make an appointment.
