This 1972 Ford Capri 2.6 Turbo May is an unique costruction of German tuners from the 70’s. The goal of this specific built was to create a racing car capable to be used daily. Capri is surely an interesting offer for people who are looking for an extraordinary car built in the spirit of classic, race cars. This Ford was found by a its owner in a German garage. Partially unassembled it spent in it 17 years until it was bought by Capri-enthousiast. Car was fully restored. All mechanical components were completely rebuilt, and the car was fitted with a 2.8-litre engine (original 2.6-litre will be attached to a car). This Capri is surely one of its kind. Evidence of technical examination by DEKRA in Frankfurt will be delivered with car.
