NEW  LOWERED STARTING PRICE.  £3700. 00  
1978 FORD CAPRI GL 2000cc Four Speed Manual Transmission.
Smart Venetian Red. Original paintwork. First class shine as in the pictures. The pictures were all taken last weekend.
An exceptionally smart survivor that runs and drives very well indeed.
Original Vinyl roof in black. Very rare now. especially one as good as this.
Tan cloth interior in VGC.  
57000 Original miles. The condition reflects the mileage. Check the pictures for details.
The suspension turrets. splash panel and all the usual rust points are in excellent original condition.
Owned by me for just over a year. prior to that by a serviceman who garaged the car while on duty abroad.  
Mileage up to 2009 was 50007    "             "   2011  was 50116    "             "   2012  was 50438Current reading is 57000
I replaced with new parts: The front discs pads and calipers. The rear drums and cylinders plus pipework and handbrake renovation. All needed attention due to the extensive time the car spent garaged. The tires were also replaced with new. plus the gas rams for the tailgate. I have used the car as a daily. and have added 7000 miles to the speedo in the time I've owned it. The car has always been reliable.
The MOT runs to August 29th 2014. It passed the last one with no advisors.
Please be aware the car is over thirty years old. It is not a perfect restoration. It is a quite incredibly well preserved original car though.  It can be used with pride as is. or is a perfect candidate for a gradual full restoration to concours standard.
Any serious inspection is welcome. Time wasters. tyre kickers and dreamers less so. Bring valid comprehensive insurance if you expect to drive it. I am happy to test drive for you if this is not possible.
A solid. smart. reliable car that will keep its value and quite likely go up over time.  
The car is sold as is.  Cash on collection only.  
The car is in Farnborough Hampshire. M3 J4 is ten minutes away.
