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.

Rallycross Rome (Ford Capris & Escorts) - 1969
This film shows the sport of rallycross that was just starting to grow in popularity in 1969. Not only does it feature some of rally's big names of the time, including Hannu Mikkola and Roger Clark, but there are also a number of incredibly rare Ford Capri 4x4s competing. These cars were only built for evaluation purposes, and used the Fergusson 4x4 system as fitted to the Jensen FF. In addition, there is a small amount of a Formula Ford race held as part of the same event, and a children's pedal car race. This is a period film with a hallmark late 60s music track -- one for the 60s devotees and motorsport fans.
