motodrome offer for sale this 1984/B example of Ford’s iconic Capri 2.8 Injection, superbly finished in Metallic Caspian Blue over Strato Silver, with the correct shark grey Recaro sports trim.
One of the last cars registered before the 2.8 injection Special came out, this one has the usual high injection specification including the 5-speed gearbox, power steering, Recaro sports trim, pepperpot alloy wheels, and sunroof.
In original specification with the exception of a modern stereo with USB port and electric aerial
Over the last 12 months the car has been the subject of an intensive restoration both to the bodywork and the engine. A list of what’s been done is further down the page..
Prior to this, we’re told it had been off the road for over 15 years and had only had 4 previous owners.
Odometer reading 3000 miles, which, for the avoidance of doubt, we’re saying is ‘mileage incorrect’ as we believe it to be 103000. Suffice to say it’s done minimal mileage since restoration.
Comes with MOT to December 2021 and 6 months warranty on sale.
A fine example of ‘the car you always promised yourself’…
At the very bottom of the page, you’ll find our usual 2 videos – a walkaround appraisal, and driving impressions.
These were provided to us by the last owner, who commissioned the restoration in 2020. There are bills to back up a lot of the work, but not all of it – it’s pretty obvious on inspection what’s been done though..
