Smart, later model 2.8 Injection Capri with tidy Recaro interior from
a 2.8 Injection Special; showing 69,835 miles; from local enthusiast
Dating from June 1983, this appealing Ford Capri 2.8 Injection is a later MkIII example finished in two-tone blue over grey and sits on 13” Pepper Pot alloy wheels set off by a neat red coachline on the bodywork.
Under the bonnet, we find the later 2.8 litre fuel-injected Cologne V6 engine which replaced the traditional 3.0 carb’d Essex version which was unable to keep up with ever more stringent emmissions rules. Despite a lower displacement, power was up to a claimed 160bhp driving the rear wheels via the later five-speed manual gearbox.
Inside this example we find the comfortable half-leather Recaro interior from a later 2.8 Injection Special variant (fitted in 2013), manual windows, sunroof, heated rear screen and original radio/cassette player.
The Capri shows 69,835 miles and presents well with a few minor blemishes as pictured having been with our enthusiast vendor for the past couple of years during which time he’s enjoyed it at some local events and car shows, the car always drawing admiration.
The history file includes the V5C showing eight former keepers, the owner’s pack with replacement service booklet recording four stamps: in 2012 at 60,428 miles, 2013, 2014 and most recently in 2016 at 64,753 miles all by Autostart of Alnwick.
In addition, the file includes 10 old MOTs and a selection of bills for works undertaken and parts purchased including a £1,047 spend in September 2022 on a service and replacement head gasket at 69,155 miles by Canon Motors of Hereford which also included the last MOT (now exempt) valid until September 2023 recording just one advisory.
Ready to be enjoyed, this 2.8 injection looks most appealing at the guide price.
