 The Capri 280 was the final, limited edition run of the legendary Ford Coupé which had first appeared back in 1969. Ford originally intended to build only 500 turbo-charged vehicles (by Turbo Technics) complete with gold alloy wheels but a change of production planning meant a name change to Capri 280. These cars featured a limited slip differential, a full leather Recaro interior, and 15-inch, seven-spoke alloy wheels to complement the 2.8 injected V6 engine. Just 1,038 were ever made and all were finished in Brooklands Green, resulting in them, inevitably becoming known as 'Brooklands Capris'. This 280 'Brooklands' was sold to Mr C. Powell by Ford Personal Import Ltd. five months after its date of registration. Chris Powell lovingly garaged the vehicle for most of its life (hence the low mileage of 6,164) and kept the car in pristine condition – which is how it still presents today. In 2013 when Chris Powell sadly passed away, the car was sold to its third registered keeper who recognised the significance of this 280 and also kept the car in a preserved state. The car's condition today is a joy to behold and must be seen to be fully appreciated.The Brooklands Green paintwork is in stunning condition and is the original factory finish, and internally the full grey leather Recaro interior is in excellent condition throughout, retaining its original evocative aroma! The Capri has been kept completely standard and, apart from a new stainless-steel exhaust system and tramp bars, is just as it was when it left the factory.Supplied with its Ford book pack, a UK Vc, spare key, manuals, service records, and the original Bill of Sale, this car has patently lived a cossetted life and must be one of the lowest mileage 280 'Brooklands' in existence today.
