Oldtimer GP 2012 auf dem Nürburgring. Peter Zakowski fährt das Original
Meisterschaftsauto von 1981, mit dem Klaus Ludwig damals gewann.
Das Fahrzeug ist mit dem kleinen Motor der Division 2 bestückt mit 1,4l
In beiden Rennen sah Zakowski die Zielflagge wegen technischer Probleme
nicht. Im Rennen 1 bedrängt er Oliver Mathai im Porsche 935 und im Rennen
2 räumt er binnen kürzester Zeit das Feld von hinten auf.
Sowohl nach dem Training als auch nach dem ersten Rennen wurde am Fahrzeug
umfangreich gearbeitet. Der Ladedruck ist noch nicht eingestellt und
deshalb hat P.Zakowski die Hand häufiger mal am "Dampfrad".
Vom turbo Capri wurden insgesamt fünf
Fahrzeuge gebaut. Ein Fahrzeug wurde zerstört, eines zu einem Mustang umgebaut, ein Fahrzeug wurde
von Herbert Stenger bei Bergrennen eingesetzt, ein Fahrzeug baut Stefan

A Striking Pre-facelift, One Owner from New Ford Capri 1600 with Custom Plan 'L' Pack. SOLD!(HD)
SOLD - MORE URGENTLY REQUIRED
A tremendous pre-facelift, one owner from new Ford Capri 1600 with Custom
Plan 'L' Pack.
Chromed front and rear bumpers, rectangular sealed beam headlamp units with
integral sidelights, chromium plated Exhaust trim, lockable fuel cap, dummy air
scoops, heater/demister two speed fan, single speed windshield wipers, foot
operated two jet windshield washers, padded sun visors, interior light,
front package tray, interior bonnet release, front and rear ashtrays.
This stunning early Ford Capri is finished in Ford Red, (colour code BN),
and has a deep glossy finish. This car stands very proud and attracts
positive reactions everywhere. According to his son, the owner wanted a
base 1600 for the design purity but opted for this vehicle to avoid the
long waiting time! Fitted with the Custom Plan L Pack, (the exterior
dress-up pack), he removed the bright metal trim and kept it boxed thus
creating the look he desired! There are a few micro-blisters at the top of
the passenger 'A' pillar. Repair sections have been professionally welded
in the floor and inner rear wheel arches but it is structurally perfect and
dry. The chrome is bright and in excellent order. The original front
screen has some wiper arm markings. A stunning Capri.
The slide-mounted, adjustable, bucket-style front seats are deep wide and
beautifully sprung. They are in excellent condition with no tears or
markings. The driving position is low with all the instrumentation clear
and operational. An additional tachometer was fitted in 1973 and is a
beautiful period accessory in full working order. There are no cracks in
the fragile dash top and the heater fan is functioning. The original black
carpeting is a little worn in places but still very presentable. The
out-of-sight 'lights on' rocker switch has been replaced and a period
wooden Mountney steering wheel fitted. The original item still boxed to
return to standard if required. The door cards and roof lining are all in
excellent order with a few tiny nicks. Delightful, retro and comfortable.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The famous 1600 Kent engine is still fitted to this original Capri and is
strong, well maintained and responsive. Offering 75 bhp and a top speed of
93mph it has a clean crisp Exhaust
note and is brilliant fun. Simple mechanics and excellent parts
availability ensure cost effective running costs for the novice classic car
owner. The short, remote floor shift offers slick changing through the
superb 4-speed all-synchromesh gearbox and the diaphragm spring clutch is
light and progressive. Wonderful.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Shortly after purchase the owner invested in the now highly desirable 5 ½
X 13 Shelby Cal 500 Slot Mag Alloy Wheels. These are immaculate and the
invoice in the history file from John Brown Wheels revealed these cost £80
new! Decent tyres and ample tread with strong brakes offer safe handling.
This vehicle was purchased new by George Hall on the 1st January 1970 and
supplied by Ford Agents, Perry's of Southend. All the original documents
are supplied with the car including the green Buff Style Log Book, Capri
Owner Handbook, Capri Food Service Booklet and even the manufacturers build
specification sheet! The careful owner has kept every MOT from the first
in 1973! On passing away the vehicle was transferred to his son in May
2012, a Mr James Hall.
All spare keys remain present, an original Ford Capri Brochure is included
in the sale and 12 Months MOT. The vehicle is tax exempt and is HPI clear.
