Description

The Ford Capri is a fastback coupé that was built by Ford Motor Company from 1969 to 1986. The inspiration came from Ford of America's phenomenally successful Mustang, and Ford of Europe were keen to replicate that success this side of the pond. The resultant new coupé was actually designed by American Philip T. Clark, known for being one of the main designers of the Mustang.
This UK-supplied right-hand drive car was purchased new from Ford main dealer W.H.Perry Ltd, North Finchley. The car had been ordered in Early 1985 but the purchaser, who was retired, postponed delivery until the new C prefix registration was issued on 1st August.
It had never been the intention of the car's owner that it should be put to daily use. He had been a Ford enthusiast and had finally realized his dreams of buying a Capri. The car was cherished and although used infrequently, never missed its annual service. Each service was dutifully stamped by the dealer confirming its very low annual mileage.
By 1997 the car had covered a total of just 3,695 miles, at which time its ageing owner had been taken ill. Shortly after, the Capri was laid-up and stored until 2006. The car covered minimal mileage until 2009, bringing its total to just over 4,000 when its owner passed away.
The Capri was then driven from London to his daughter, where it remained until very recently. This is without doubt one of the finest Capris we have seen in recent years and is a must for any Ford collector.
