A Dazzling Ford Capri 2.8 Injection Special with Just 24,844 Miles from New - SOLD!
SOLD - MORE URGENTLY REQUIRED A dazzling Ford Capri 2.8 Injection Special with just 24,844 miles from new. EQUIPMENT Body-coloured door mirrors-driver electric, body-coloured grille, lamp bezels body-coloured, power assisted steering, front and rear spoilers, tailgate wash/wipe, tinted glass all round, ammeter and oil pressure gauge, tachometer, quartz analogue clock, courtesy lights, perforated black headlining, front reclining Recaro seats, three-spoke leather covered steering wheel, electrically operated aerial, tilting/sliding steel sunroof, boot light, instrument brightness control. EXTERIOR The bodywork of this race-bred Capri is in very good condition finished in Mercury Grey, (code Q7). A deep blemish free shine gives this car a beautiful presence. The plastic trim has not faded and all the decals are correct and present. There are some minor markings commensurate with a car of 26 years of age such as the rear wings where the rubber spoiler sits. The supplying dealer sticker in rear screen and front and rear number plates are still fitted. The vehicle has not been detailed on the underside or engine bay. A wonderful unmolested survivor. INTERIOR The interior of this 2.8 Injection Special evokes a sense of true nostalgia with the supportive Recaro seats looking fantastic finished in the grey high-grade leather with 'Strobe' pattern fabric centre panels. The black perforated headlining unique to the Special is tight and clean and the deep pile grey carpeting is soft to touch. The leather covered steering wheel along with the drivers bolster has worn. The dash area remains original and fully functioning controls and areoflow vents face the driver in a wonder fashion. Minor hairline cracks to the dash top can just be seen. The original Dealer tax disc holder and leather key fob are still included. An 80's iconic interior exactly true to the manufactures intentions. ENGINE & TRANSMISSION This Capri is in fine mechanical order having covered such low miles in its 26 years. The Capri 2.8 Injection was the first offering of the new Special Vehicle Engineering (SVE) operation that had recently been set up in Dunton, Essex. SVE added a Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection system, an oil/water heat exchanger, viscous coupled fan and an improved radiator making this models 158 BHP capable of 130mph and 0-60mph in 7.9 seconds. The 5 speed gearbox is in fine fettle and slots through the gears precisely. WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES This Capri is fitted with the factory original 7-spoke alloy wheels. The plastic centre caps have had the Ford logo refreshed at a DIY standard. Brand new AVON turbospeed CR28 205/60 R13 tyres have been fitted. The hydraulic dual-line servo-assisted brakes with ventilated front discs unique on the 2.8 Special stop the car quickly and in a straight line. HISTORY FILE Supplied new by Ford Main Dealers, Harper Motor Co. Ltd on the 8th August 1987 this will be one of the very last 2.8 Specials ever made being on an 'E' prefix. Remaining with its original private owner, Mr Allan, for 26 years and until May of this year, before being purchased by a second owner. Annually serviced by the supplying Ford Dealer up to 24,148 miles and 1998 before being laid up. Fortunately, the owner kept the annual MOT ritual despite not using the car leaving no doubt to the incredible low mileage of just 24,844 being genuine and highly sought after. All Ford manuals and spare keys, including the torch key on dealer leather fob, are included. 12 Months MOT, HPI Clear and Approved Used Car Check certificate.
