A retro Ford Capri 2.8 Injection Special with one owner and 48,919 miles.

EQUIPMENT
Remote control drivers door mirror, body-coloured grille, lamp bezels body-coloured, power assisted steering, front and rear spoilers, tailgate wash/wipe, tinted glass all round, ammeter and oil pressure gauge, tachometer, quartz analogue clock, courtesy lights, perforated black headlining, front reclining Recaro seats, three-spoke leather covered steering wheel, tilting/sliding steel sunroof, boot light, instrument brightness control.

EXTERIOR
This exceptional one owner example is finished in Ford Black (code A9), a cost option when new. A deep mirror shine from the stunning paintwork is truly breath taking and the finish is uniform. Carefully touched in stone chips to the front and only minimal age related blemishes are visible upon close scrutiny. All factory fitted panels are straight with linear gaps and the exterior trim items and decals are pristine, commensurate with the low mileage credentials. Hard to source fitments such as the rubber spoiler and colour coded front grill are pleasingly immaculate, and the dealer supplied number plates remain fitted. An extraordinary example, exactly as Ford intended.

INTERIOR
The interior of this 2.8 Injection Special evokes a sense of true nostalgia with the supportive Recaro seats looking fantastic finished in the grey high-grade leather with Strobe pattern fabric centre panels (code Q5). The drivers outer bolster has rubbed and discoloured ever so slightly. The deep pile grey carpeting is spotless and the black perforated headlining unique to the 2.8 Special is tight. The leather covered steering wheel and gear knob are in beautiful order with natural veins prominent. All controls fully functioning are housed in an excellent dashboard with just one tiny crack. The factory fitted ESRT 32PS stereo cassette remains fitted and even factory build stickers have remained attached to the seat frames! Correct to Fords intention and remarkably well preserved.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The Capri 2.8 Injection was the first offering of the new Special Vehicle Engineering (SVE) operation that had recently been set up in Dunton, Essex. SVE added a Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection system, an oil/water heat exchanger, viscous coupled fan and an improved radiator making the 158 BHP capable of 130mph and 0-60mph in 7.9 seconds. The fantastic engine bay is fastidiously detailed with factory plates, stickers and stamping clear to see. The engine is smooth and quiet whilst producing an unmistakable burble and a deep roar under enthusiastic use! The 5 speed gearbox is direct and progression through the range is effortless.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
This Capri is fitted with the factory 7-spoke alloy wheels in flawless condition and with correct Ford badged centre caps. Branded 205/60 R13 tyres have masses of tread remaining. The hydraulic dual-line servo-assisted brakes with ventilated front discs unique on the 2.8 Special stop the car quickly and in a straight line.

HISTORY FILE
Registered new on 10th September 1985 by Ford Main Dealers the Gates Group, Mr Phillip Hutson purchased the car new and has remained the only ever keeper since. The older style blue V5 registration document states no former keepers, and with just 48,919 miles from this is an incredibly special example. The history file contains many previous MOT certificates to track the mileage and verify authenticity. Furthermore, there are various receipts and invoices to document maintenance work, and the original Ford Capri Operating Guide and Motorists handbook are present. Maintenance work in Sept 2016 includes a service using genuine Motorcraft items, brake overhaul and replacement clutch.

Representing a unique opportunity to acquire an iconic unmolested Capri 2.8 injection with amazing credentials and condition to match. One for the serious enthusiast.

MOT October 2017, HPI Clear.
