Accessories; Ford Capri 280 Brooklands 15in alloy wheels, Magnex exhaust system, front strut top brace bar, stereo CD, white dial backgrounds, pool ball gear knob.
A restored example presenting in very good order, the car has been professionally repainted in its original colour of lacquer Red. The paintwork has a deep polished shine and uniform finish. A few very minor blebs in the paint have come through and there are some light chips to the finish but the car is completely sound with no corrosion issues. The underside is totally structurally sound. All trim sections, glass, lights and badges are intact and the side rubbing strips have been removed. A brilliant looking, fun and useable example!
A very clean interior also part of the overall restoration where required is trimmed in grey high-grade leather and ‘Strobe’ pattern fabric centre panels in superb condition with no rips or tears. The seat structure is excellent with firm bolsters. The carpets are original and still have the genuine Ford rubber over mats front and rear. The door cards and headlining are fully intact and unmarked. The interior trim pieces are in very good condition and all switchgear and functions are fully operational. The dash front has been professionally retrimmed and a modern stereo it fitted but not working. A straight and uncut parcel shelf is a welcome find!
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The engine is smooth and performs brilliantly with a wonderful sound thanks to a replacement Magnex exhaust system at a cost of £500 in 1999! A professionally detailed engine bay is clean and presentable with a strut brace fitted for added stability. The 5-speed gearbox operates exactly as it should. This is a fantastic example to use and enjoy as Ford intended.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
A popular yet subtle upgrade is the same style 15in Capri 280 Brooklands alloy wheels. The wheels are in good order with no kerb damage and matching brand tyres were fitted new in 2020 with very little use. 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.
Registered new on the 25th September 1985, this Capri 2.8 Injection has covered 78,534 miles from new with a huge history file supporting the mileage including MOT certificates dating back to the early 1990’s. The large file is neatly presented and evidences high levels of ongoing maintenance and servicing which results in the car running and performing very well. An agreed insurance valuation from 2020 places a value of £20,000 on the car.
Not meeting the usual KGF Classic Cars stock profile in terms of mileage and condition one credentials but not detracting from the cars overall excellent attributes, we are offering this example for sale on a part exchange to clear basis. The car looks superb and performs as such and represents a fantastic useable example at the lower end of the price range. The car is requiring nothing for immediate enjoyment with a full 12 months MOT. There are two sets of keys. Full inspection and test drive is welcome.
