Ford Capri 1.6 Laser

FOR SALE
Quite possibly the lowest mileage Ford Capri 1.6 Laser with only 6,680 miles.

EQUIPMENT
Body-coloured grille, bonnet lip and light bezels, body-coloured door mirrors with driver remote-control, black painted bumpers with overriders, spoiler, tailgate wash/wipe, tinted glass all round, RS-style four-spoke alloy wheels, ammeter and oil pressure gauge, tachometer, quartz analogue clock, courtesy lights, perforated grey headlining, front reclining seats, three-spoke leather covered steering wheel and gear-lever knob, tilting/sliding steel sunroof. Factory options; Metallic paintwork. Dealer options; Ford front fog lamps, Clarion CRX56 radio/cassette, electric aerial.

EXTERIOR
This incredible special edition Laser was built as a run out model of the Capri and is beautifully finished in Ford Strato Silver metallic, (Code V6), a cost option when new. This example has covered a genuine 6,680 miles from new and the condition of the car is every bit as special as the incredibly low mileage. A bright polished shine and uniform finish looks amazing and the factory original panels are in superb order with only a very small ding to each door. Owing to light markings gained in storage, the previous owner undertook some light cosmetic refurbishment which was carried out professionally to a very high standard and nothing other than small imperfections are visible upon close scrutiny, most notable being a scratch to the driver’s door mirror and tiny marks to the bonnet. Originality seekers will be pleased to see factory ‘Laser’ decals, registration etching to the glass and the supplying Ford dealer number plates and tax disc holder. This is a truly beautiful Capri and a real show stopper.

INTERIOR
The term time warp is often overused but entirely justified with the interior of this exceptionally low mileage example. The ‘Truro II’ cloth trim, (Code XE), with matching door and quarter panel inserts is pristine and reflective of its 6,680-mile credential with absolutely no visible wear to the fabric. The colour matched carpeting and headlining are both immaculate and the dashboard is completely intact with no cracks whatsoever. All controls fully function including the two-speed heater fan and analogue quartz clock. A period replacement stereo has been fitted. The spotless boot area houses the original jack and unused spare wheel still with virgin Pirelli spare tyre with label and coloured banding to the tread. The parcel shelf is pin straight and untouched and factory stickers remains attached to the boot floor. An iconic and instantly familiar classic Ford interior.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The factory fitted 1593cc OHC ‘pinto’ unit with single venturi carburettor is famed for it’s robust and simplistic mechanics. The engine is quiet and performs brilliantly with a top speed of 99mph and 0-60mph time of 13.0 seconds. The engine bay is beautifully clean with factory stickers and plates displayed and even bright factory markings to the cam cover, long lost or at least very faded on most examples! The 5-speed gearbox is light and works through the gears precisely, and the clutch feels positive.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
This Capri Laser remains fitted with the correct RS-style four-spoke alloy wheels which are in superb order with no damage and defined part number and ford emblem stampings to the spokes, a feature lost upon heavy restored rims. Pirelli 185/70 R13 tyres to all four corners have plenty of tread remaining. The hydraulic dual-line servo-assisted front discs and rear drums stop the car quickly and in a straight line.

HISTORY FILE
Factory build records confirm that this special edition run-out model Capri Laser was built in February 1986 at the Ford factory in Saarlouis, Germany. Registered new on 1st August 1986 by Ford Main Dealer, Selwood garages Ltd of South Sheilds, this example has covered a fully verified 6,680 miles from new with just three keepers. First owner, Mrs Norma Wallace, owned the car until 1993 when it was sold to Mr John Chilton. After 19 years of ownership the car was then sold to the third and last registered keeper, Mr Anthony Rear.

The handbooks, guides, dealership literature and original stamped service booklet are present and the history file is able to verify the mileage with a collection of previous MOT certificates and invoices dating back to the early 1990’s. In May 2020 and at 6,390 miles, a documented major service was carried out with all fluids changed including brake fluid, gearbox oil and differential oil. At the same time a cambelt and water pump change was carried out with supporting invoice. Completing the history file are two sets of keys and an original Ford Capri brochure featuring the Laser model. Representing a superb and highly prized example of the final edition Capri, this wonderful 1.6 Laser is ready for its next appreciative owner and would delight any Ford enthusiast or collector.

EXTERIOR
Ford Motor Company’s ‘New Edge’ design language began with the original Ka as the first production Ford to adopt the radical exterior styling mostly recognised with its use of intersecting arcs and crisp lines. This exceptional Ka Collection has covered just 9,705 miles from new and is finished in factory original Vitro Metallic, (Code Z2). The bodywork and paint finish are simply outstanding with only a few miniscule markings. Cosseted by two family member owners from new, this garaged Ka has none of the common bodywork issues often found and the amazing underside still displays factory labels, long lost on most examples. All trim sections are perfect and Ford main dealer number plates are fitted. Far superior to the usual offerings and without question one of the best low mileage cars in existence.

INTERIOR
The interior of this cossetted example is beautifully clean and free from wear. The original Squeeze fabric upholstery in Aqua Jade colour scheme, (Code JE), is spotless with no wear or damage to the fabric whatsoever. The carpets are pristine and are protected by Ford Ka carpet mats and the headlining is perfect. The leather steering wheel has very slight deterioration, a common issue, but this does not detract from a remarkably well-preserved cabin space. The funky blob style fascia and incorporated switchgear is as new and all functions operate seamlessly including the original Model 6000 stereo CD. Likewise, the spotless load space boasts an unmarked carpet underneath which the boot floor is as new. Clean, fresh and totally unspoilt.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The dependable and frugal 1.3 SOHC four-cylinder engine produces a power output of 70bhp and 106Nm of torque to achieve a top speed of 104mph and 0-60 in 13.7 seconds. The engine is quiet and performs faultlessly and all fluids are clean. The pristine engine bay features all factory stickers, plates, PDI markings and even fragile paper labels fully intact. The five-speed gearbox is light, precise and effortless to use with a perfectly comfortable motorway cruising manner.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES

HISTORY FILE
Registered new on 6th May 2004 by Main Dealer, Heartlands Ford of Birmingham, the car was purchased by Mrs Barbara Mack. The vehicle order form and sales invoice confirm the price paid of £7,674.99 including pre-registration vehicle discount. Mrs Mack used the vehicle sparingly in retirement and kept the car garaged at all times when not in use. In 2017 her Great Niece turned 17 years of age and needed her first car. Miss Charlotte Ellis became the next and only other keeper, at which point the car had covered less than 4500 miles. Charlotte has continued to cherish her Great Aunt’s Ka, the condition of which is a credit to them both and a tear was shed when sold.

The history file contains the vehicle zip wallet containing the handbooks, guides and radio booklet as well as point of sale documentation and new vehicle handover checklists. Every MOT certificate from the very first in 2007 fully verifies the exceptionally low mileage and there is a folder of service and maintenance invoices all from the same service centre that has looked after the car for many years. Completing the history file is an original Ka sales brochure along with two original Ford keys.

Debate over the pronunciation of the name Ka has continued since launch and whether it is to be said with a long or short “a”, or with the letters pronounced separately. Even Ford’s confused press office has used all three but the official Ford stance is with a short “a”! Whichever way you may wish to say it, the first examples are soon approaching 25 years old and the humble Ford Ka represents a superb value entry into classic car ownership, even more so with this incredible preserved example with just 9,705 miles from new!

The car looks superb thanks to the very low 25,502 miles covered and sympathetic historic remedial paintwork carried out to uphold the look. Close scrutiny will reveal a structurally perfect example that has never seen weld repairs and light age-related markings and blemishes throughout. The original decals and badges are preserved and purists will be amazed to see factory fitted glass all round with registration number etching. Incredibly, even the rear wheel arch lip factory date stamps have survived fully visible, almost unheard of for a Mk1 Fiesta! This ultra-rare and historically important Fiesta Million is a really unique find.

INTERIOR
A wonderfully period and time warp interior. Fiesta Million cars were based on the humble Fiesta L model but featured many extras including the exclusive chequered ‘Scott’ seat fabric, (Code A1). This was very similar in design to the Carla Fabric used in the Fiesta Supersport. Remaining exactly as Ford intended, the preserved upholstery is commensurate with the low mileage and has suffered no rips or colour fade whatsoever and nothing other than very light wear to the top corner of each front seat back. The loop pile carpets are protected by specially made Million logo velour mats and the perforated headlining is fully intact. The door cards are unmarked. All equipment, switches and gauges function including the quartz clock and heater fan on both speed settings. There is a hairline crack to the dash front and the padded dash top is perfect homing an identical model car and a Saint Pio of Pietrelcina.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Fiesta Million buyers could choose either the 957cc engine or in this instance, the 1117cc unit producing a whopping 53bhp! This higher-powered option remains totally factory standard and performance figures include a quoted top speed of 90mph. The engine bay is wonderfully clean, unmolested and displays factory plates and stickers as well as panel stampings to the original inner wings. Coloured PDI dabs are visible, long lost on most examples. The engine sings into life effortlessly with the familiar Fiesta exhaust note and the driving experience is surprisingly nippy and very retro! The four speed all synchromesh gearbox precisely slots into each gear. A real joy to use.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The original steel wheels are in immaculate condition and wear period additions in the form of outer embellishers, bright wheel nut finishers and Ford valve caps, all easily removable if the new owner so wishes. Matching branded 145/80 R12 tyres have masses of tread and no cracks and the original and unused Goodyear Grand Prix X remains in the storage compartment under the boot floor. Standard fitment with the 1100 OHV engine are servo assisted brakes featuring 8.7in front discs and self-adjusting 7.0in rear drums.

HISTORY FILE
Registered new by Ford Main Dealers, Lincoln Street Motors Ltd of Birmingham, on the 3rd May 1979, this genuine Fiesta Million has covered just 25,502 miles from new. Mr F.G Payne purchased the car for his wife, Beatrice Payne, who is the first named owner on the original blue V5 document. The car remained in the Payne family for 29 years in their home town of Solihull until 2008, at which point it was purchased by a collector in Southern Ireland. There are photographs in the history file of the car being homed in a wonderful collection in Ireland and now the car has returned back to the UK with full DVLA registration undertaken. The original service booklet, handbook and Fiesta accessories brochure are present and there are many vehicle service and maintenance invoices made out to Mrs Payne along with previous MOT certificates and two sets of keys.

To emphasise just how special this Fiesta Million is, out of the 3,100 made there are only eleven know to exist and this car is the only one known to be on the road according to source, Project Bobcat, a dedicated Fiesta Mk1 website where further details, vehicle records and articles are shown here. A perfect and insanely rare addition to any classic Ford collection.

EXTERIOR
An instant classic the moment it rolled off the production line this limited edition Capri 280 is finished in the only exclusive colour available, Brooklands Green Metallic, (Code T7), and has a superb finish. All exterior trim items and decals are in excellent order other than a few touched in marks to the bonnet. Once owned by the Branch Secretary of the Capri Club International, the car was a concourse show winner in the 1990’s and still presents beautifully today thanks to the low mileage and warm storage conditions. All the original glass is number plate etched with Identicar. Period accessories in the form of driving lamps and Yale locks, (no longer operational), were added in the late 1980’s and in 1993 a thin coat of Waxoyl was applied to the underside at a cost of £23.50! Incredibly this is still visible today helping to preserve the car and all the factory splendour.

INTERIOR
The interior is distinguished by Recaro sports seats fully trimmed with luxurious, high quality Raven leather with Burgundy piping. Full structural integrity is clearly visible with only minor wear to the drivers bolster. The deep pile grey carpeting is plump and unworn having been protected by tailored carpet mats and the black perforated headlining is tight and clean with a hole hidden behind the passenger sunvisor. The leather covered steering wheel and gear knob are in prime condition commensurate with the low miles covered. Amazingly there are absolutely no cracks to the dash and the dials, switches and controls are brilliantly clear. All controls and gauges function including the two-speed heater fan, analogue quartz clock and electronic radio cassette player with electric aerial. The rear parcel-shelf is incredible and the boot area remains spotless. Electric windows and central locking are discreet accessories to an interior otherwise exactly true to the manufactures intentions and an 80’s icon.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The Capri 2.8i was entrusted to Fords Special Vehicle Engineering group, (SVE), who 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 engine is smooth and quiet whilst producing an unmistakable burble through a replacement stainless exhaust. Correct factory under bonnet identification plates are intact with the ‘Brooklands’ inscription clearly visible. Exhibitionists will be proud to lift the bonnet for spectators to marvel at. The 5 speed gearbox is light and progression through the range is precise.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
This 280 Capri is fitted with the factory correct and unique 7-spoke 7X15 inch alloy wheels and have never been refurbished showing minor markings. Pirelli P6000 195/50 ZR50 tyres are fitted and the spare is still the original Pirelli Cinturato P7 tyre. The hydraulic dual-line servo-assisted brakes with ventilated front discs unique on the 2.8i stop the car quickly and in a straight line and reconditioned calipers were fitted in June 2019.

HISTORY FILE
Coveted by collectors the limited edition Capri 280 is the most difficult ‘car you promised yourself’ as only 1038 were produced to celebrate the last of a famous line. GG11595 is build number 737 and has only had four former keepers from new, all of which were passionate enthusiasts. Registered on the 26th March 1987 the car was sold to Laurie Mullett in May 1988. He was the Branch Secretary of the Capri Club International and doted on the car before selling to fellow enthusiast Robert Francis. Mr Francis writes a fascinating feature in the Capri Club International magazine in March 1993 describing the agonising search and eventual purchase from fellow club member, Laurie. The car was then the sold in the mid-nineties to Mr Keith and Sue Smith from Gomeldon Salisbury in Wiltshire who were Ford Capri fanatics owning up to four Capris at one time in the nineties, this car being their pride and joy and only using it for car shows each year up to 2016. Mr Keith Smith maintained this car himself to the highest standards servicing the car every year of ownership regardless of the miles covered, some years covering under 200 miles with annual MOT certificates to prove. A letter in the history file from Keith and Sue Smith to the last and current owner, Mr Don Birkinshaw in 2017, explains they were ‘absolutely gutted in having to sell due to ill health’ and that they ‘met lots of lovely people with it’. The car was affectionately known as Brookv. Mr Birkinshaw purchased the car from South Western Vehicle Auctions Limited for £35,084 in July 2017 and has religiously maintained the car since. A large history file with all documentation awaits the new owner with spare keys and original sales brochure.

This example in factory original Radiant Red, (Code P3), has covered an incredible 9,798 miles from new and the condition is truly special. The uniform paintwork boasts a stunning bright polished finish and all factory panels are pin straight and damage free. The rear arches are original and still display defined spot weld dimples. All glass, lights, rubbers and trim sections are fully intact and the discreet Mexico front wing badges subtly remind you that this is a special edition.

The underside still displays factory markings and PDI dabs soon lost on higher mileage cars. An extremely rare special edition Ford.

INTERIOR
Trimmed in original Raven Mistral fabric, (Code SA), the upholstery is spotlessly clean and commensurate with the remarkably low mileage. Matching door cards and trim pieces are fully intact and the cut pile carpet is in excellent order having been protected by genuine Ford carpet mats. The dashboard is as new and all functions and equipment work perfectly including the original Ford Model 6000 stereo CD player. Further subtle appurtenances of a special edition model include the leather clad steering wheel and sports instrument cluster with black symbols and red pointers on white dials. The leather to the steering wheel is unworn with prominent natural veins but there is a small area of lift around one of the inner spokes. Virtually showroom fresh, this preserved interior will certainly impress.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The 1.6i 16v 4-cylinder engine produces 90bhp and 134Nm or torque to achieve 0-60mph in 11.4 seconds and a top speed of 110mph.

The 5-speed manual gearbox is light and easy to use and the engine performs superbly.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Standard for the Mexico Edition were a set of larger size 6x14in steel wheels with the original and unique eight-spoke Ford hubcaps which remain in good order with minimal light damage to the outer edge. All four tyres are incredibly still the factory fitted Michelin MXV2 185/60 R14 which will satisfy originality seekers but due to age replacement is advised if the car is to be used. Diagonally-split dual line servo assisted braking system with front discs and self-adjusting rear drums stop the car with assurance.

HISTORY FILE
Supplied new by Main Dealer, Bridgend Ford of South Wales, this example was registered on the 17th August 1995. Produced to commemorate the success of the Ford Escort Mexico in the London to Mexico Rally the classic heritage was guaranteed but despite the sales literature claiming ‘history repeats itself after a quarter of a century’ and that ‘it’s got what it takes’, the reality was clever badge engineering. Something that Ford mastered as far back as the 1970’s with the L, GL and Ghia! The car remained local to the dealer until 2018 whereby two of the three former keepers were husband and wife, Mr and Mrs Richards. The car has covered just 9,798 miles from new and is in outstanding original condition. The history file consists of the Ford book pack and some previous invoices and MOT certificates including the supporting invoice for the service and cambelt change in October 2020. There are three Ford keys including the red master key and an original 1995 Ford Escort Mexico sales brochure. This fabulous 25-year-old survivor is sure to please anyone seeking an entry into classic Ford ownership with impressive bragging rights when you mention you own a Ford Escort Mexico!?
