Launched in 1969 as 'The car you always promised yourself', the Capri was Ford Europe's response to the mighty sales success of the Mustang in America. The luxury version was launched in March 1970 as the 3000E and was the fastest car that Ford Britain had ever sold. Next to the 3000GT it was the model that all Capri owners aspired to. Ford's marketing was in full swing with a motorsport program that was sweeping all aside on the race circuits of Europe. ‘'Win on Sunday, sell on Monday'' was paying dividends for Ford and this 3.0 litre V6 version was very desirable 'back in the day'.
Offered here is a fully restored Capri 3000E in Sebring Red with black interior and the desirable manual transmission. It was subject to a full restoration in the mid nineties and the history file contains photographic evidence of the back to metal process. It was originally Fern Green. The mileage is only 98,000 miles and is substantiated by all the previous MOTs. It comes with virtually a full MOT and original green logbook.
MkI Ford Capris are now very collectable and this example provides the opportunity to enjoy the performance model with great investment prospects and a lot of ‘'fun to boot''.
