Here we have an outstanding example of a first generation, Mk1 Ford Capri. This particular example is a genuine 1600 GT XLR.
This model was effectively the top of the range of the Capri’s, when these were in the Ford showrooms, back in 1972. The rare GT option giving it the extra performance and the ‘X’ pack giving it the more desirable, interior etc.
This example is a true time warp example, registered in April 1972, this example is still in remarkable condition to this day, a very rare, 100% solid Capri.
Finished in this cars original colours, Daytona Yellow with the Black bonnet, this car looks stunning. As you can hopefully see from the many pictures and video, the paintwork has a lovely deep all over shine, which contrasts great with the Black bonnet and chrome work. Look closer and you will see there are no noticable dings or dents. Look even closer and you will notice there is no rust, all solid wheel arches, sills , bottom of doors etc etc, its all in outstanding condition. All the trim is in just as good condition. This car has been seen at many shows and its ready to be enjoyed now, this is not the normal project ‘Capris’ you see advertised, this is an excellent example thats ready to be enjoyed straight away.
The underneath of this car is amazing. It shows no signs of any welding, the condition is amazing wherever you look. Its all been carefully protected, so you can still see clearly all the metal, but can rest assured its all protected. When you open the doors, it still has the covers over the holes where rust treatment was applied very early on in this cars life. This is where they used to inject the protection into all the box sections etc. Well this extra expense at the time has certainly paid off and has surely contributed to the remarkable condition of this car !.
Open the doors and you are rewarded with an equally excellent interior. The first thing that strikes you is the condition of the seats. The lovely bucket seats are in excellent condition, front and rear, no real wear at all. This condition continues to the door cards, with the lovely chrome detailing all in excellent condition. The headlining has been restored at some point and as a result is in lovely condition, as are the deep pile Black carpets. This model features extras like the six dial dash, clock, map reading light etc, all working as they should. Again this is not the usual project car, this interior is as good as they come, its ready to be enjoyed now. An extra feature on this car is the rare ‘Webasto’ full length sunroof, Again the roof is all in excellent condition and is a lovely option in the summer months, opening all the way back.
Open the engine bay, again the condition is excellent. The paintwork in here is as good as the rest of the car, no rust again, everything is as it should be. The engine is kept as clean as the rest of the car, this engine bay is ready to be shown now !. The boot etc is all solid and again in excellent solid condition throughout.
The wheels fitted to this car are the original Rostyle wheels complete with chrome trims. Again all in lovely condition.
The 1.6 engine starts and runs perfectly, it produces a lovely engine note. The gearbox has recently been rebuilt, so slots through the gears with ease. This car is very rewarding to drive, you really feel the road well, with a bit or rear will drive fun when conditions allow.
The service history with this car is excellent. It includes 2 A4 folders full of service history / Receipts / Old Mot’s / Magazine features / Show certificates etc. Also a nice touch is we have details of all the previous 4 owners, most of whom have been spoken to allowing us to pass on to the new owner a detailed history of this car.
If you are looking for a classic to enjoy and look after, this car should prove to be a delight to use. With prices of Classic Fords rising, you will also have the benefit of this Capri GT being a sound investment going forward.
Obviously its tax free being a classic , it will come with a YEARS MOT, to ensure its ready to be enjoyed.
