The Ford Capri was introduced in January 1969 at the Brussels Motor Show, and it was available with a variety of engines. Under the new body, the running gear was very similar to the 1966 Cortina. The rear suspension employed a live axle supported on leaf springs with short radius rods. MacPherson struts were featured at the front in combination with rack and pinion steering which employed a steering column that would collapse in response to a collision.The Capri proved highly successful, with 400,000 cars sold until 1970. Ford revised the Capri in 1972. It received new and more comfortable suspension, enlarged tail-lights and new seats. Larger headlamps with separate indicators were also fitted, with quad headlamps now featured on some models. The Kent engines were replaced by Ford Pinto engines. In 1973, the Capri saw the highest sales total it would ever attain, at 233,000 vehicles: the 1,000,000th Capri, an RS 2600, was completed on 29 August. This stunning Capri has had 6 Previous Owners including the vendor. The car was subject to a bare metal nut and bolt restoration around 10 years ago. A substantial photographic record of the restoration is supplied with the car, plus a number of DVD's also showing photographic detail of the restoration. It has been meticulously maintained by the vendor, and has been thoroughly Waxoyled underneath. The engine bay is well detailed, in fact the car is as good under the bonnet as on top. The Interior is excellent, with many original features, although there is a very minor crack in the fabric to top of dashboard, which is a common failing with Fords of this era. The car comes with detailed recent history, i.e. past 10 or 12 years, but unfortunately there is not much prior to this.
