Factory options; Automatic transmission, sports road wheels, heated rear window. Dealer options; Front seat belts.

EXTERIOR
To state that this astonishing Mk1 1600XL won the Concours Mk1 trophy at the Capri National Day in May 2016 offers an insight to just how special this car is. Finished in its original shade of Light Grey (code D), Ford produced the colour for just six months from August 1971, and this is the only one known to the Capri Mk1 Owners Club. The paintwork is exceptional having been subject to a documented restoration including a fully detailed and painted underside, even down to zinc plated nuts, bolts and fixings. A beautifully smooth and polished shine is worthy of its praise from Concours Judges and original trim pieces such as the weather strips, rubbers and brightwork have taken preference over inferior aftermarket replacements. Incredibly, this example still wears its factory panels including the front wings displaying the unique upturn to the wheelarch edge as well as the original rear arches with factory welds visible. Custom Plan XL Pack specific features such as the irreplaceable fluted tailpipe trim and the twin reversing lamps below bumper have been retained for absolute accuracy. Unconditionally outstanding and one of the best existing examples.

INTERIOR
The interior of this award winning example is truly fascinating not only in condition but more so that it is completely original! The factory super grade vinyl seat coverings are amazingly well preserved with no damage or visible wear and the loop pile carpeting has been protected superbly. The dashboard and fascia are remarkable with no cracking or fading and the steering wheel still features the often deteriorated or removed leather covering. The very critical eye would note that the headlining has slight discolouration, and the aluminium tread plates show a natural patina. The boot area houses the original jack and complete Ford toolkit, and factory markings and the original delicate plastic rear lens covers remain undamaged. Blue oval royalty.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The standard 1600cc Crossflow engine offers modern traffic competing capabilities with a top speed of 96mph and 0-60 in 14 seconds. The spotlessly clean engine bay is strictly standard with genuine Ford Motorcraft service items and even the rocker cover 1600 affixed at an angle, just as it left the factory! The correct oil fitted shock absorbers and strut tops also feature along with a genuine original Ford exhaust. A further unique item is the long and narrow Lincon battery sited on the left side of the engine compartment, specific to the auto models only whereby a revised battery tray design was required. The factory optional automatic transmission performs exactly as it should.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The optional sports road wheels remain in the correct silver with black infils. This Capri was manufactured with Goodyear radial tyres and the previous fastidious keeper with accuracy in mind has ensured that only the same brand should be fitted. The servo assisted brakes with front discs and rear drums bring the car up straight and true.

HISTORY FILE
Built in December 1971 at Halewood and registered new on 1st January 1972 by Ford Main Agents, Hendy Lennox (Bournemouth) Ltd, this pre facelift Mk1 Capri has had just four keepers and covered a verified 36,381 miles from new. An original typed purchase note depicts a purchase price of £1,101. 10s 5d including £45. 13s 11d for the XL Plan and £535. 0s. 0d part exchange against a Daimler! The history file is incredible with the original handbook and service book containing supplying Ford Main Dealer stamped entries up to 1980 with supporting invoices. Substantial MOT and paperwork history thereafter fully verifies the mileage.

The previous keeper purchased the car in 2008 and has since embarked upon an incredible quest to build arguably the best example in existence. Attention to detail, originality and accuracy being paramount, a photographic restoration file is supported by a huge documented folder. The car is known to both Kevin Folds, Club Secretary of the Capri Mk1 Owners Club, and Glyn Watson, Chairman of same. A first place trophy at the 2016 Capri National Day is included in the history file along with club magazine features. Only a personal inspection can really reveal the true magic of this Mk1 Capri 1600XL, an undisputed champion and an absolute credit to its creator.

MOT August 2017, HPI Clear.
