Re: More Capri prototypes

If Ford kept the original side window on Colt/GBX, I think it would have evolved into this side window on the mk2/3!

Re: Capri MK2 or MK3 3.0 Ghia Wanted

i think there is a mix of both front seats, the bases are later in shape, and they have piping on the edges.

Re: Capri MK2 or MK3 3.0 Ghia Wanted

I like this mk2 auto although it will need a bit of work, looks like an early Ghia with one colour interior and black centred wheels https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1976-Ford-Capri-3-0-Ghia-Auto/264223027639?hash=item3d84eb71b7:g:KKUAAOSwDEBcLV4S:rk:3:pf:0 This is a later Ghia https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/...

Re: Saxty's Capri Scrapbook

If you can picture a slightly longer boot / rear overhang, giving a more fastback rear rake, that would be ideal!
Think the rear profile shape of the DB10 in Spectre rather than the Scirocco shape that this is similar to...

Great scrapbook

Re: Capri MK2 or MK3 3.0 Ghia Wanted

Found this on carandclassic, although started life as a 3.0ghia, now an S replica with decent 2.8i interior (using 5 speed front seats)!

I’ve copied the link here purely because it looks in good condition;

Re: Capri Wind Tunnel Models

Great models, would love the mk2 but there’d be a long queue!
I wish I could spend a day looking at all their history archive, your book gave a great insight.

Re: Capri 500 Prototype

Hi Steve I was going to mention this Capri in the RS2800 thread but the posts got too long! I thought the badging was going to be gold as well, but with the burgundy extras inside then I guess the red stripe would have tied it all in... Perhaps change the white stripe and lettering to gold, as the w...

Re: News Hot Off The Press

Stopped watching Eastenders a few years ago now looks like I’ll have to start again :D

If I recall Phil broke Alfie’s first 2.8 for spares...what will the fate of this 280 be....

I remember back in the 90s a character had a mk1 facelift XL in green!

Re: 4-Speed 2.8i for sale

Nice, would look better with the original stripes, seats look great....but I saw one over the weekend in the same colour, for £7895! I don’t know how to copy the post, but I put it in the cars for sale section on the 4th....and it went within 24 hours! The low mileage 280 overshadowed it. Another ba...

Re: 6200 mile 280

interesting it did half that mileage in the first 6 months of its life!

Great example I couldn’t look after it that well, do you think it will sell quickly?

The 8k mile Special they had recently was £19k or so less!

Re: New Car Programme on TV Soon

Caught a glimpse and from what I saw, he wanted to get the interior right....did he ditch the correct strobe interior for the S,and fit the red Ghia interior, or vice versa? I’ll still watch it even if past episodes weren’t that great! Does anyone know if Fantomworks or Overhaulin ever worked on a M...

Re: My 2.8 Injection

Welcome to the forum looks like a nice Capri in a great colour combo! I personally really like the pepperpots it’s part of the signature look of the 2.8i. If you really want a good alternative then I’d go for the 15in 4spoke RS style alloys, aside to the 280 style wheels already mentioned. It’s a sh...

Re: Capri book

Amazon emailed me to say the book wouldn’t get dispatched until the 21st, but got delivery today!!

Not reading it yet until I finish Steve Saxty’s book; a couple of chapters left.

Had a quick flick through and looks as good as the mk1 edition!

Re: Discuss Saxty's Book - The Cars You Always Promised Yourself

Hi Steve, I’m really enjoying your great book bringing back many memories! At the moment I’m on the xr4i story and remember in the late 80s at secondary school; my CDT teacher (technology) who was an avid Ford owner, had a small collection of cars, one being a black XR4i. He always said that his was...
