"Hi Gloria & Jesmond, I would just like to say a big thank you for the recent purchase of our classic car. Granted this vehicle was probably one of the lower priced vehicles in your extensive and stunning range of vehicles, you treated us just as well as I imagine as you treat anyone in your dealings. The way you conduct business and treat your clients & vehicles makes it a very memorable and wonderful experience. The passion you have for classic and “pure” vehicles is amazing - alongside your knowledge! We can see why you have long-standing clients and hope to continue to purchase from you ourselves in the future. Thank you both and thanks for finding us such a lovely car that makes us smile, it is a pleasure to drive"Neil & Maria Clarkson, Christchurch, New Zealand
The Ford Capri is a great car of the 70's.
The 1973 Ford Capri's were the Mk I face-lift models featuring the new grille, larger tail-lights and new interior and dash, then four months later the first- generation Capri was replaced by the second generation.
Parallels between the Mustang and the Capri are obvious but arguably the latter was the braver product planning move because what worked in the US did not always translate to Europe. And the Capri really was about Europe not just the UK. When the Mustang was unleashed on the American public, its extensive range of options packs – and wide choice of engines and transmissions – were hardly new, but European customers had not experienced anything like the Capri’s multifarious offerings. Nor, arguably, had any other comparatively inexpensive vehicle been so sexy, Jaguars excluded. Essentially, Capri was to Cortina as Mustang was to Falcon.

Capri, a sunny name destined to become a big name in the car business.
To put it bluntly, the days of cheap and cheerful Capris are over. Buyer's are now prepared to spend big money on their cars. Top Capri's, especially Mk1s, can sell for NZD65,000 upwards. At the risk of contradicting ourselves, you may still find cheap Capris but their condition will be suspect and usually modded and bodged in an era where originality is now becoming increasingly critical on many classics, and Capris are no exception.
It may have started life as a prettier Cortina, but the Capri gained cult status as 'the car you always promised yourself' and it just got better with every passing year. This Capri is now a cult classic that’s up there with the best of them. Don't delay, as prices for good examples seem to be going up monthly.
Will be sold WOF'd and Registered.
TRANSPORT / SHIPPING CAN BE ORGANISED ON THIS VEHICLE ON BUYER'S BEHALF AT BUYERS COST.

At Waimak Classic Cars, our principal interest is to ensure the preservation of classic and vintage vehicles. Please remember that our vehicles are many years old, often with further previous owners. Many have been bought by us recently. We cannot know exactly what repairs or maintenance has been done although we do our best to obtain log books and copies of invoices of work done, when, and by whom.
Our descriptions are based on our own observations and knowledge and we look for the best examples we can find. Indicated mileages are based on the records showing with NZTA and / or the vehicle’s odometer reading. Because of the age of the vehicle, this can never be guaranteed. Our inspections are generally non-invasive. Our description is based on a visual inspection and on information supplied to us by third parties.
Any sale is on the condition that the purchaser relies on his/her own judgment and does not rely on our skill or judgment or on any representation made by us. This applies even if the Buyer has not inspected the vehicle before purchase. We strongly recommend that you have the vehicle inspected by an independent assessor qualified to comment on the particular vehicle’s condition. If you are unable to organise this, then this can be organised on your behalf, at your cost.
We are proud of our reputation. However, no older vehicle can be expected to be as reliable as a new one and so all our vehicles are sold on an as is where is basis. Mechanical breakdowns, electronic failures at inconvenient times and maintenance costs are part and parcel of the ownership of classic and vintage vehicles. Reliability is a combination of the particular vehicle, how it has been driven and maintained, and luck.
For more information about this vehicle, please contact us Monday to Friday between 9:00am and 6:00pm (New Zealand Standard Time) on +64 (0) 3 310-6485 / +64 (0) 274 990-020. Alternatively, you may email us at firstname.lastname@example.org anytime.
PLEASE NOTE: As Waimak Classic Cars is NOT a car yard dealer type of operation, we do not operate through fixed opening hours. Viewing is therefore STRICTLY BY APPOINTMENT ONLY and A FEW DAYS NOTICE is always appreciated, as it is seldom possible for us to accommodate viewing on the same day of inquiry
