"Hello, our car arrived in Napier. Bad weather..other commitments etc etc BUT today all the ducks were in a row. Finally we have been out for a drive…it was fabulous just love driving it it’s a great one to alternate with the MGA…but only when the sun shines. The roofs off it’s polished to perfection and I can only say many thanks to being 100 percent accurate in your description of the car…always a little unnerving when buying site unseen. This is my third time with you guys and you have always been honest. Many thanks once again..it will be looked after as always."Stephen Beaumont, Napier, New Zealand
The 'Sexy' European Capri outsold everything except the Volkswagen Beetle.
Yes, you read that right - The Mark 1 Ford Capri was much beloved around the world, especially in its native Europe, and sold fairly well in the United States as well after being introduced in the 1970 model year.
In common with the Mustang what really set the Capri apart from future rivals was the tremendous mix of options and accessories. Three dedicated option packs were available; X, L and R ( X for exterior, L for Luxury and R for Rally). The R option was mainly for GT versions as it meant sports wheels, matte black bonnet and lower side panels treatment plus Wipac driving lamps.
In September 1972 the Capri was face-lifted, with 151 changes that included fairly major suspension tweaks, a standard bonnet bulge on all models, bumper-mounted indicators, larger front lamps with bumper-mounted indicators and rear lamps incorporating a reversing lamp. There was also a new dash and better seats.

Stylish cars with a cult following and decent performance tend to be out of reach for many, but there are exceptions and the Ford Capri is one of them. Built to emulate the success of Ford’s Mustang in the US, the Capri was the Blue Oval’s pony car for Europe.
While it used to be the third-generation Capri that everyone wanted, it’s now the earliest cars that are in favour and after years in the doldrums, they have regained their cult following among classic enthusiasts.
The golden rule is - there’s no substitute for a six-cylinder Capri.
Stylish, fun to drive and fashionable once again – the Capri has certainly kept its promise over the decades!
Will be sold WOF'd and Registered.
