 This Capri is a very special and unique car.
I bought it brand new in Germany and it was first registered on 12 October 1972. I still have the original sales invoice. Capri brochure from 1972 and most repair bills.
This Capri has followed me around the world. Initially registered under German plates. it came to the UK in 1974. 1979 back to Germany. in 1980 by air freight to New York.
It took over three months to get it registered in the US and I needed a permit from The Environmental Protection Agency as the car was not fitted with a catalytic converter and it was the only Capri of this kind registered in the US.
In 1986 the car came back to Germany. from 1988 to 1996 I drove it in Spain. I brought it back to the UK in Jan 1996 and since then it is under British plates.
The car  is in very good condition for its age. It has a new MOT valid till 02 2015. It has passed the Mot every year on the first go.
Because of its age it is tax exempt and the insurance premium is £100 p. a. (Cherished Car Insurance)
The BCC Radio Nottingham did a feature on my car last year. The Timeline Photo shows the car. myself and BBC presenter Mark Dennison.

I do love this car. but I do not move it enough and as we all know - a car does not get better from standing in a garage.

This car would also be ideal for photo shots. TV or Film work.

It has been well cared for over these last 42 years and is now looking for a loving new owner. Please feel free to contact me for further information on this car. The car is located in Nottingham.
