Mk1 Ford Capri 1600 GT XLR - 21,094 Genuine Miles for sale
Good Evening and Welcome to my auction for my Mk1 Capri 1600 GT XLR. This is my first eBay advert. so please excuse any errors. In the event of somebody arriving to my house with a big enough offer before the auction ends. this advert will be removed before the auction expires.
I initially bought this 1600 GT XLR Capri in 2005 with the plan on making a track car. however. due to the originality of the car. I bought another shell and built 'PIO' a 330BHP Mk1 Capri Drift Car - PIO507. If you know Capri's. you'll know my drift car. PIO won the Retro Ford Magazine - Best Retro Ford Car.
Anyway. back to the 1600 GT XLR Capri. having enough projects on the go. I've decided to offer up this Capri. if I get the right money. it will sell. if not. I will keep it as Capri's with 21. 94 Genuine Mileage don't come up for sale every day. When I bought the car. the lower A Pillar Pockets were just starting to rust and the front wings. so I replaced these pockets recently and fitted two exceptionally good second-hand genuine Ford Wings as I did consider building a concourse car. The welding work has been done to a very high standard and NO Further Welding is Required. in my opinion. the car now needs a full rub down and paint job. This car would make an exceptional Capri when painted. Original Radio Blanking plate still perfect. lower dash panel perfect. no cracks on the dash. outstanding head lining. just a tiny mark/tear about the size of a penny. This Capri has the basics for a fantastic winter project.
The Capri starts and drives really well. the Capri feels exceptionally tight on the road and the 1600GT Engine pulls really well. It is worth pointing out that with the mileage being just 21. 94 since 1969. that is an average of 445 Miles per year for 47 years. I would recommend a mechanical once-over and replacing flexi brake hoses etc. as I would suspect they are all originals. As you can see from one of the pictures. the original Ford sticker is still on the wiring loom.
Have some nice history on the car. have the original Vehicle Registration Document from 1969. Have some old MOT's showing the Mileage.
April 1996 - 18. 63 Miles
October 2001 - 18. 54 Miles
July 2003 - 20. 71 Miles
July 2005 - 20. 30 Miles
The Capri was re-registered in Southern Ireland in 2006 with aa age related plate ZV Plate. I could type lots more on this Capri. but if someone is really interested. get in touch. I have listed it with a realistic reserve. All the usual eBay T&C's apply. Good luck bidders.On 17-Oct-16 at 08:48:25 BST. seller added the following information:
