This particular Capri was originally sold by a Ford dealer in Portsmouth, Hants and is part of the Mark 3 range of Capri‚Äôs’.

This car is by no means a show queen and is used as a daily driver and resides outside in all weathers. This is my 4th Capri injection and is probably the best condition of all of them, despite multiple ownership. One previous owner only did around 100 miles in 12 years. I’m guessing it was probably garaged for that time also. I believe in using my cars and so apart from daily use, she is also used for attending car shows at weekends, including the 2020 Regent Street Motor Show where it was the only Capri present.

The original wheels on the car would have been 13″ Pepper pots. I’m not a great fan of those wheels, so after some consideration, I decided to fit some 15″ JR9 BBS copy wheels. They were still in keeping with the year of the car and I had them fitted for 2 years or so. Me being me, I became bored with them after a while, so I manage to obtain some Brookland’s 280 Capri 7 spoke wheels. These are still a standard Capri wheel but It makes obtaining tyres easier with a far better choice in 15″ than a standard 13″ wheels. The current tyres are Toyo proxy 205x55x15
