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. EQUIPMENT 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. EXTERIOR 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. INTERIOR 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 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. HISTORY FILE 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. Thinking of selling?

HISTORY FILE In 1979 the current owner of this spectacular car, Mr Alan Bradshaw, bought his first Mk2 Escort, a year-old 1978 1600 Sport in Signal Green with a Black vinyl roof from Billinhams Ford in Wolverhampton. It was his first proper car and although always envious of his friends better spec Mexico, in 1981 the trusty Sport was traded-in for a brand new XR3. It was more than 30 years before a Mk2 was thought of again and after three decades of business success he allowed himself to relieve his youth and buy the Mexico he had always dreamt of. This example was registered on the 27th April 1978 and has had just five former keepers. With only around 2,500 Mk2 Ford Mexico’s made, (source Ford RS Owners Club), this car represents a rare breed! Positioned awkwardly in price and specification between a 1600 Sport and an RS2000 when new, the Mexico had a very short production run and therefore is now a highly sought after model amongst collectors. Mr Bradshaw outsourced the restoration of this example and the accompanying invoices for works carried out are eye wateringly expensive with a photographic album as evidence. Some of the photos also include his original 1600 Sport! The vehicle is registered with the RS Owners Club and a comprehensive history file of all works will reassure the next owner.
