1973 FORD CAPRI 2600 - £Auction

The legendary RS 2600 Ford Capri was an 'homologation special' built to make the Capri competitive in the European Touring Car Championship of the early 1970s. It featured modified suspension, a close ratio gearbox, lightened body panels, vented disc brakes and alloy wheels and was built in very limited numbers. Performance figures for the RS2600 were very impressive in period with 2,637cc producing 150bhp at 5,800rpm, sufficient to propel the range-topping Capri from 0-62mph in 8.6secs and on to a top speed of 124mph.There is not a lot of history with this particular Lot, however, it is believed to be a Ford Capri RS 2600 from 1973 that was originally shipped to Australia when new. We understand that at some point the car was raced by genial Kiwi, Norris Miles. Norris is best known to us here for his determined efforts mixing his 'Class B' Alfa GTV with the ' Class A Capris' to great effect and managing to win the 1983 Uniroyal Production Saloon Car Championship in the process. It has beenmodified for racing purposes but the lack of a history file does not allow us to establish when this took place. In fact, all the paperwork confirms, is that the car returned to Germany in 1984 and was then sold to a UK resident in 1990. However, we can confirm that it sits on BBS wheels and is fitted with a ZF 5-speed gearbox, an Atlas rear axle with four links and a Watts linkage, a limited slip diff, coil springs all-round and disc brakes. A rare opportunity to acquire an authentic period car, in need of a full restoration, but with lots of history waiting to be discovered.NB: The engine in the car is a standard Ford RS 2600 V6, which is not currently running, and is in need of a total recommission.
