In 1981, Ford's faithful 3.0 Litre, V6 was dropped from the line-up, making way for a new, sporty, version called the 2.8 Injection. The Capri 2.8 Injection revived the range and kept the car in production several years longer than Ford had originally planned. In 1984, the 2.8 injection model was the subject of a substantial upgrade and was known as the Capri Injection Special. This development used Recaro half leather seats and included a limited slip differential. Externally, the car could be easily distinguished by the seven spoke RS wheels, its colour coded grille and headlamp surrounds. The Ford Capri was the Ford Mustang of Europe, a mind boggling array of options meant that the Capri could be whatever you wanted it to be, just like the Mustang. The Mk. III was a substantial improvement over its predecessor featuring enhanced aerodynamics that led to better performance, improved economy and included the now trademark quad headlamps. In 1981, Ford's faithful 3.0 Litre V6, Essex engine was dropped from the line-up, making way for a new, sporty, version the 2.8 V6, Cologne unit. This two- owner Capri has recently been restored to a high standard having been taken off the road in 1996 and dry stored until 2013. Richard Mallinson of M40 Cars of Thame carried out the work and clearly spent a significant amount of time carrying out the restoration. Any corrosion on the car was cut out and re-fabricated; it was repainted to the original colour of Diamond White, new door seals and a sunroof seal were fitted. The Recaro seats were re-trimmed in the original grey leather along with fabric centres. Mechanically, it was given a complete overhaul, the engine was checked and found to have excellent compressions and the cylinder heads were removed, de-coked and converted to run on unleaded fuel. A new clutch was fitted and the brake system completely overhauled. A new set of wheels were sourced and five new tyres fitted. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate valid until 23rd October 2017, together with the original service book and a history folder, this Capri 2.8 injection is a very well presented example.
