Ford Capri RS Cosworth -
The first use of the name Capri outside the USA was by Ford of Great
Britain for a 2 door coupé version of the Ford Classic saloon. To really
understand why this model was produced and in such limited numbers, one has
to look at the history of the Ford Motor Company (UK) at that time. During
the 1950s all bodies for Ford of Great Britain's passenger vehicles were
built by outside body builders. Dearborn made it known in November 1960
that it wanted to purchase the rest of the share capital in Ford of Great
Britain. This brought about some policy changes that had great influence
into the styling of the coming models. Not the least the fact that they put
their own people into Dagenham. The Ford Classic was a result of 4 years of
intensive development. Approval for the project was given in autumn 1956.
The Styling of the car was the last project undertaken by Colin Neale
before he left Dagenham for Dearborn. The initial design requirements was
for the Ford Classic to be a full range model, to take Ford into the new
decade. Ford produced a full size estate (or Station Wagon) mock-up but it
never reached production.
The Capri Project was code named "Sunbird" and took design elements from
the Ford Thunderbird and the Ford Galaxie Sunliner. It was instigated by
Sir Horace Denne, Ford's Export Director. He wanted a "Co-repondent's" car
to add a little glamour to the export line. On its September announcement
it was initially for Export only. It was designed by Charles Thompson who
worked under. It had sweeping lines, a large boot space and a pillarless
coupé roof. The Ford Consul Capri went on sale to the domestic home market
of Britain in January 1962: The bodies were sub-assembled by Pressed Steel
Fisher, with only final assmbly taking place at Dagenham. Because it was
intended as part of the Ford Classic range of cars, the body was well
engineered but was complex and expensive to produce. With new production
methods, time demands from Dearborn and a need to match opposition
manufacturers in price, the Ford Classic and Consul Capri were almost
doomed from the start. The Ford Classic ran from 61 - 63, and was replaced
by the equally short lived Ford Corsair.
The Consul Capri was made to Ford Classic De-Luxe spec only, it offered
many then unusual features, such as four headlights, variable speed wipers,
disc brakes, dimming dashboard lights, and a cigar lighter. It was
proclaimed as "The First Personal car from Ford of Great Britain" (Ford of
Great Britain, sales literature, December 1961) Initially fitted with a
1340 cc 3 main bearing engine (model 109E), these earlier cars were
considered underpowered and suffered from premature crankshaft failure.
Engine capacity was increased in August 1962 to 1498 cc (model 116E); this
engine was a vast improvement. The first 200 Capris were left-hand-drive
cars for export including Europe and North America.
In Germany at the 1961 Frankfurt Auto Show, Ford sold 88 Capris.
In February 1963 a GT version (also 116E, ) was announced. The new GT
engine, developed by Cosworth, featured a raised compression ratio to 9:1,
a modifed head with larger Exhaust
valves and aluminium inlet manifold, a four branch Exhaust manifold and most noticeably a
twin-choke Weber carburettor - This being the first use of this carburettor
on a British production car. (this same engine was announced for use in the
Ford Cortina in April 1963. The Consul Capri was the First genuine factory
GT from Ford, as we know it. From 1961 to 1964 just on 19,421 Capris were
sold, of which 2002 were GT models. The Consul Capri was discontinued in
Overall the car was very expensive to produce and in the latter part of its
production was running alongside the very popular Ford Cortina. Sales were
disappointing and the Consul Capri was removed from sale after just two and
a half years. Just 1007 cars were sold in 1964,the last year of production,
412 of them being GTs . The Consul Capri (335) is one of the rarest cars
from Ford of Great Britain

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

Test Drive the 1974 Ford Capri V8!
Hi! This is Agent 8771's 1974 Ford Capri, featuring a high-output 302 V8
and Borg-Warner T5 transmission hooked to a Ford 9 inch positraction rear.
This car originally had the wheezy Pinto 2000 cc engine and 4 speed trans,
so it is much better now. A nice, original, rust-free unit brought up from
the States to save it from the recyclers yard. Sweet vintage aluminum slot
mags, nerf bars, and diamond-tuft package tray finish this Capri off in
classic 70's style! Hope you like it as much as I do!
