An Incredible MK1 Ford Cologne Capri RS3100 Recreation - SOLD!
SOLD - SIMILAR REQUIRED PLEASE CALL 01733 425140
An incredible Mk1 Ford Cologne Capri lovingly built as a European Touring
Car Championship RS3100 recreation.
Fibreglass Cologne wide arch bodykit, ducktail rear spoiler, front spoiler,
Smith & Deakin bonnet scoop, lightweight rear quarter plastic windows, full
internal bolt-in roll-cage, Cobra Daytona race seats, unleaded stage 2 gas
flowed heads, Swaymar gas flowed inlet manifold, Burton V14 fast road cam,
steel timing gear, Holly 390 carburettor, Ford Motorsport air filter,
Luminition electronic ignition, Magnecor HT leads, Kenlowe electric fan
with internal over-ride switch, Facet red top electric fuel pump, chrome
engine ancillaries, diamond shape strut brace, AVO adjustable dampers,
lowered sport springs, stripped-out race interior, Shift-Lite tachometer.
The Cologne Capri is a real magnet for enthusiasts and this stunning
recreation is awesome. Finished in the striking Radiant Red and Diamond
White colour scheme the quality of finish is obvious from the deep gloss
finish that has been achieved. The lightweight fibreglass Cologne panels
have been professionally fitted giving the car gorgeous flowing lines that
look right at any angle. From the bonnet scoop, over the louvered rear
window to the huge ducktail spoiler this example achieves instant respect
and admiration. Difficult to fault other than a few tiny imperfections on
very close scrutiny. Amazing and one for the Ford collector.
Spartan, crude and rudimentary just like the RS3100 race-cars used in the
1974 European Touring Car Championships. A complete bolt-in roll-cage and
two Cobra Daytona race seats offer secure anchorage for the OMP six point
safety belts and leave the driver in no doubt that this vehicle is designed
with fun and exhilaration in mind. A separate Shift-Lite tachometer and
labelled switches and buttons only add to the 'race' feel but importantly
all the creature comforts remain operational such as heating and
ventilation! A modified sports cockpit functional but removed from road
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The Ford Essex 3.0 V6 engine has been meticulously cared for with
documented maintenance records and recognised modifications proving this as
a usable vehicle developing 160bhp and not an unreliable unit requiring
constant fettling. Unleaded cylinder head conversion, excellent oil
pressure and an uprated cooling system make this a driving delight rather
than a trailer show and shine exhibitor. Various chrome detailing can be
seen beneath the diamond shaped strut brace once again 'wowing' expectant
onlookers when the bonnet is raised. The four speed transmission offers
perfect ratios and no whines, knocks or creaks exist but familiarisation is
required before the driver can enter race mode!
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES.
Expensive Compomotive ML light alloy wheels finished in white with polished
rims are pristine and offer 8" wide front and 10" wide rear profiles. Shod
in new Avon Motorsport CR500 road legal tyres the look created is worth
every penny! Uprated front braking system courteous of four-pot Princess
calipers, stainless flexi hoses and 2.8 vented discs with Mintex pads offer
ample safe stopping power.
Owned by a charming Ford fanatic for 27 years this incredible creation
started life as a Mk1 Ford Capri 1600GT and was painstakingly transformed
into a Cologne Capri RS3100 recreation. Well known in the Capri world
parting with this beautiful vehicle was difficult and it is hoped the new
owner will fully appreciate the labour of love, attention to detail and
tremendous time that the previous owner poured into the project and
therefore continue to show the car for all to enjoy.
An A5 pad with detailed hand written notes by the previous owner for the
last 27 years in chronological order will help convince the new custodian
how unique and special this car really is. From every oil change to major
expense every minuet detail is documented. Amazing.
HPI Clear, V5 correctly updated and ready to enjoy.
Capri 2.0S cosworth, 0-200 km/h and 100-230 km/h
This is my old capri 2.0S with cosworth 2.0 YB engine, t5 gearbox and
atlas 3.44 + zf motorsport lsd rear axle. Earlier the engine gave 364 hp
but after rebuild with wrc-pistons, long H-profile rods, ported head +
bd16 cams it has not been Dynoed yet. Let´s see after turbo swap.
The guitar player is my relative. His playing and this Deep Purple`s old
song sounds good to me and hope you like it too.

Partial throttle runs for fuel mapping. Dyno was set to sweep
1000-7000rpm in 18 seconds. Limiter at 6450rpm. Crash at 5400rpm most
likely due bad conrod bearing.
