Re: CAPRI MK3 DASH MINT CONDITION

O.M.G what is going on ? I just looked on eBay thinking to see £660 and it’s doubled ? It’s gone crazy ……… I tuned in with 2 minutes to go and it was at £760. I was getting ready to congratulate Mr Andrew being closest estimate, when at 20 seconds remaining it went to £880, then at 5 seconds the fi...

Re: capri ghia wheel tyre sizes

I always think 185 tyres look too narrow on the Capri, where possible 205 seem to suit the car better.

Re: CAPRI MK3 DASH MINT CONDITION

Currently £660 with a day to go. Andrew. Edit: As soon as I write that the bid has been retracted and it's back down to £400. Don't you just hate it when that happens :lol: I reckon I would have been spot on with my estimate :wave: At £420 now with £65 postage if required, but I would be scared to ...

Re: Stolen

They should cut the thieves hands off so they can never thieve again. Bastards. :agree: Paul as do many other sensible human beings. Why steal it? Over inflated asking prices for old Fords and their parts? Compared to a modern car it's not that fast so it can't be that, and this one is too well kno...

Thanks to everybody who provided help. :D

£17k on top of purchase price :o It's very clean, but for that cost I thought it was going to be concours until I watched it. Being original paint I wouldn't touch it, but that hole on the hinge def needs sorting, unless it's going to sit indoors for another 10 years. The other scabs etc don't look ...
