1972 Ford Capri Mk1 3000E


Specifications


Description

 

The car you always promised yourself!

Now this is a very rare survivor....a V6 Auto 3000E  - E stands for Executive, and that's exactly what you got..these cars where the absolute top of the line in their class, and Ford hailed them as the very best Capri of the time.

As was Fords recipe for success with the first Ford Mustangs, you could custom order pretty much anything to personalise your new Capri from a base 1300 poverty pack with hub caps right up to the top line 3000E model with its unique pleated interior and padded dash accents, leather wrapped alloy spoke sports wheel, opening rear windows, heated rear window, driving lamps, custom rear finisher panel, vinyl top, sports road wheels, the list just went on an on!

ABOUT THIS CAR

  • This genuine old survivor is a exceptionally rare car on our shores and would have been a very desirable and expensive high performance car in its day.
  • The honest old body is clean and reasonably straight with the usual expected blemishes of a 50 year old car, but presents well in the original Sapphire Blue metallic.
  • The paintwork is very presentable with the odd blemish, but again presents very well over all, and has a good honest driven and enjoyed appearance.
  • The unique interior is a combination of original trim with some refurbishment having been carried out in the past, which makes it very serviceable, and the unique luxury E interior fittings all appear to be present and largely correct, including the rear armrests and padded pleated trim.
  • The 3000 V6 engine appears to be very willing and performs just like it should. Gearbox is good and the genuine heavy duty V6 diff is tight and quiet...so just as these cars were well respected for their performance back in their day, this one still doesn't disappoint even some 50 years on!
  • Decent serviceable chrome and trim complement the exterior of this stunning looking old Capri, and the original style rostyle wheels still look the part today.
  • Born as genuine 3000 V6 car with all of the correct unique factory body reinforcements still present, this is not just another transplanted 1600 like a lot are today, this one is the real deal...

A great fun classic and still very capable 70s English Muscle Car to simply drive and enjoy as is, or the perfect base for a refurbishment down the line, either way you couldn't go wrong with this car, it simply doesn't get much rarer for a Capri than a genuine 3000 E, and it's highly unlikely you will find another for sale anywhere in the world today...

This is a classic that will only rise in value – a very good and driveable investment for the near future.

Car will be sold WOF'd and Registered if sold in New Zealand.
