CULT CAR - THE FORD CAPRI
The Ford Capri is an iconic car. From its development in the late 1960s it
became hugely popular and well-loved, instantly recognisable on the streets
of 70s Britain, as much a part of that decade as kipper ties and
flared-trousers! It even became a TV star in the hands of 'The
Professionals!' Although it finally went out of production in December
1986, many of these vehicles are still in existence, lovingly cared for by
individuals and groups of enthusiasts all over the country. The Capri's
best-remembered advertising slogan was 'the car you always promised
yourself' and, in the knowledgeable company of John Hill, chairman of The
Capri Club International, we met up with some Capri owners who made that
promise come true. We take a closer look at this wonderful car and see it
in action, come rain or shine! Move over Bodie and Doyle!

A Dazzling Ford Capri 2.8 Injection Special with Just 24,844 Miles from New - SOLD!
SOLD - SIMILAR REQUIRED PLEASE CALL 01733 425140
A dazzling Ford Capri 2.8 Injection Special with just 24,844 miles from
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
HPI Clear and Approved Used Car Check certificate.
Zakspeed Ford Turbo Capri
Zakspeed Ford turbo Capri beim AvD
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
Mücke in Berlin wieder auf und hier eben das 1981er Meisterschaftsauto bei
