"Many Thanks to Jesmond and Gloria for the successful marketing of our vehicle. We didn't want the hassle of non-genuine buyers wasting our time requesting views and drives. Waimak Classic Cars specialise in the type of vehicle we had to sell and that's important. Jesmond removed all that and secured a satisfactory result for us."John & Lynda, Christchurch, New Zealand
The final – and some would say ultimate – Capri arrived in 1977 and with the minimum of effort on Ford’s part, it put right just about all of the Mk2’s flaws.
Designated Project Carla, the re-invigorated coupe looked mean and moody, and proved that the Ford stylists had not lost their magic touch. In fact, it is hard to believe that in terms of styling, the only major differences between the Mk2 and Mk3 amounted to a re-profiled bonnet leading edge, some natty ribbed rear light clusters, and wraparound bumpers.
Once again, the Capri became the pushy young exec’s weapon of choice...there was no denying it delivered the goods. Great looks improved by the final facelift, the Capri was able, once again, to punch above its weight, and give the snobs from Germany and Italy a bloody nose… :). In 1987, time was called on one of the defining cars of a generation, and after a run of nearly two million cars, the book was closed on a legend.
- Very tidy car inside and out
- Nice paint work mostly looks original with minuscule blemishes.
- Straight rust free body.
- Mechanically sound - starts, runs and drives well.

- RS Wheels
Built to emulate the huge success of Ford’s Mustang in the States, the Capri was Britain's pony car and, there’s a ‘British Mustang’ for most budgets and tastes although values are rapidly rising for good examples like this one.
Yes, the days of cheap and cheerful Capri's are well and truly over. A lot of buyers are buying them for old times sake and as always its a case of supply and demand. Not many good ones left and not many Capri's in New Zealand - period.
Will be sold WOF'd and Registered.
