An Incredible MK1 Ford Cologne Capri RS3100 Recreation - SOLD!
SOLD - SIMILAR REQUIRED PLEASE CALL 01733 425140
An incredible Mk1 Ford Cologne Capri lovingly built as a European Touring Car Championship RS3100 recreation.
Fibreglass Cologne wide arch bodykit, ducktail rear spoiler, front spoiler, Smith & Deakin bonnet scoop, lightweight rear quarter plastic windows, full internal bolt-in roll-cage, Cobra Daytona race seats, unleaded stage 2 gas flowed heads, Swaymar gas flowed inlet manifold, Burton V14 fast road cam, steel timing gear, Holly 390 carburettor, Ford Motorsport air filter, Luminition electronic ignition, Magnecor HT leads, Kenlowe electric fan with internal over-ride switch, Facet red top electric fuel pump, chrome engine ancillaries, diamond shape strut brace, AVO adjustable dampers, lowered sport springs, stripped-out race interior, Shift-Lite tachometer.
The Cologne Capri is a real magnet for enthusiasts and this stunning recreation is awesome. Finished in the striking Radiant Red and Diamond White colour scheme the quality of finish is obvious from the deep gloss finish that has been achieved. The lightweight fibreglass Cologne panels have been professionally fitted giving the car gorgeous flowing lines that look right at any angle. From the bonnet scoop, over the louvered rear window to the huge ducktail spoiler this example achieves instant respect and admiration. Difficult to fault other than a few tiny imperfections on very close scrutiny. Amazing and one for the Ford collector.
Spartan, crude and rudimentary just like the RS3100 race-cars used in the 1974 European Touring Car Championships. A complete bolt-in roll-cage and two Cobra Daytona race seats offer secure anchorage for the OMP six point safety belts and leave the driver in no doubt that this vehicle is designed with fun and exhilaration in mind. A separate Shift-Lite tachometer and labelled switches and buttons only add to the 'race' feel but importantly all the creature comforts remain operational such as heating and ventilation! A modified sports cockpit functional but removed from road going examples.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The Ford Essex 3.0 V6 engine has been meticulously cared for with documented maintenance records and recognised modifications proving this as a usable vehicle developing 160bhp and not an unreliable unit requiring constant fettling. Unleaded cylinder head conversion, excellent oil pressure and an uprated cooling system make this a driving delight rather than a trailer show and shine exhibitor. Various chrome detailing can be seen beneath the diamond shaped strut brace once again 'wowing' expectant onlookers when the bonnet is raised. The four speed transmission offers perfect ratios and no whines, knocks or creaks exist but familiarisation is required before the driver can enter race mode!
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES.
Expensive Compomotive ML light alloy wheels finished in white with polished rims are pristine and offer 8" wide front and 10" wide rear profiles. Shod in new Avon Motorsport CR500 road legal tyres the look created is worth every penny! Uprated front braking system courteous of four-pot Princess calipers, stainless flexi hoses and 2.8 vented discs with Mintex pads offer ample safe stopping power.
Owned by a charming Ford fanatic for 27 years this incredible creation started life as a Mk1 Ford Capri 1600GT and was painstakingly transformed into a Cologne Capri RS3100 recreation. Well known in the Capri world parting with this beautiful vehicle was difficult and it is hoped the new owner will fully appreciate the labour of love, attention to detail and tremendous time that the previous owner poured into the project and therefore continue to show the car for all to enjoy.
An A5 pad with detailed hand written notes by the previous owner for the last 27 years in chronological order will help convince the new custodian how unique and special this car really is. From every oil change to major expense every minuet detail is documented. Amazing.
HPI Clear, V5 correctly updated and ready to enjoy.

Werksrennwagen - Ford Capri Cosworth GAA auf dem Algarve Classic Festival 2013
Andrew Smith onboard mit dem JD Classics Ford Cologne Capri RS 3400 auf dem
Algarve Classic Festival 2013.
Diesen 1973 gebauten Werksrennwagen finden Sie auf JD Motors:
Er fuhr gemeinsam mit Alex Buncombe, ebenfalls im Cosworth GAA Capri und
dominierten die Historic Touring Car Challenge. So gewannen Sie die Plätze
1 und 2 mit dem Ford Capri RS.
Der RS 2600 Capri war eine Ikone in den 70er Jahren und fuhr dort gemeinsam
in einer Klasse mit Bmw 2002 turbo und
Porsche 911 RSR.
As the clouds started to clear and conditions began to improve, so the JD
crew readied the powerful TWR XJS and Cologne Capri pairing as they
prepared to take to the track. As you would expect from a field of vintage
Touring Cars, it was going to be high paced, not to mention high noise as
the 40 minute qualifying session began. First onto the track was the XJS
and with Chris Ward behind the wheel for the first driver stint, the car
performed well maintaining some competitive lap times before coming into
the pits to hand the drive over to John Young. Following the XJS out was
Andrew Smith in the Ford Cologne Capri and having already put in some
unrivalled lap times including the fastest lap of the session so far, the
Capri was brought into the pits for driver changeover. As Andrew handed
over to Alex Buncombe, the Capri maintained the momentum throughout the
rest of the 40 minute session as Alex continued to increase the pace,
knocking time off every lap. Despite pressure from the Ford Escort of
Daniel and Robert Brown, the JD Capri couldn't be caught, driving its way
to a clear pole position. The XJS also performed well, qualifying in third.
The Capri was drifting its way on the top!

Ford Escort Mk1 RS2000 Insane Pure Sound HD
Ford Escort Mk1 RS2000 Pure Sound - Hill Climb and Circuit Racing !!
O Ford Escort foi um automóvel criado pela secção da Ford Motor Company
A geração MK1 foi produzida de 1968 a 1974, na Europa, com carroçaria
arredondada remetendo ao estilo da época. Tinha tração traseira e estava
equipado com motores 1.1 e 1.3. Em 1969 surgiu a versão RS 1600, que
produzia 120 cv. Em 1973 surgiu a versão RS 2000 com 100 cv, motor pinto
The Mark I Ford Escort was introduced in the United Kingdom at the end of
1967, making its show debut at Brussels Motor Show in January 1968. It
replaced the successful long running Anglia. The car was presented in
continental Europe as a product of Ford's European operation. Escort
production commenced at Halewood in England during the closing months of
1967, and for left hand drive markets during September 1968 at the Ford
plant in Genk. Initially the continental Escorts differed slightly from
the UK built ones under the skin. The front suspension and steering gear
were differently configured and the brakes were fitted with dual hydraulic
circuits; also the wheels fitted on the Genk-built Escorts had wider
rims. At the beginning of 1970, continental European production
transferred to a new plant on the edge of Saarlouis, West Germany.
The 2.0 L RS2000 version, with its distinctively slanted polyurethane nose,
and featuring the Pinto engine from the Cortina, was announced in the UK in
March 1975 and introduced in Germany in August 1975, being reportedly
produced in both countries. It provided a claimed 110 bhp and a top speed
of 110 mph (177 km/h). For acceleration to 100 km/h (62.5 mph) a time of
just 8.9 seconds was claimed by the manufacturers.

probably one of the best drivers in the world. A Ford Escort rs2000 mk2
driving at the hillclimb in ireland. the driver is Simon Mc Kinley. He
drives a 301Hp powered 2.4l Pinto engine with 16V cylindre head (warrior
head) and only 780kg car weight.
The car is so damn fast that it can compete against formula cars at
