Just seen this on KFC web site , https://youtu.be/MOp2xNXR3xU
I could have bought one of these in 92 using my grandads ford employees discount and Marie made me move house . I would have kept the Capri as it was used for work ,and Marie would have used this .
Don’t get me going when we had kids as I was going for the first child born in 2000 “ Marie was 12 days late these woman just don’t know how easy they have it . OMG “ the first thing said when I went to work there goes your dream car .....
but 3 kids later and the dog , cat & fish I got my Capri back again ..... happy days . :beer:

Strong money, but a very nice car...And low miles, low owner and original paint/bodywork are what many people want so will pay more for them.
Cars like this are always a good guide to value your own car for insurance purposes :)

My agreed value runs for 2 years and states that if the form or pics I sent in are misrepresented, then they will be revoked and I will only get the market value.
The car was insured with the same company by the previous keeper, and quite a considerable amount more than I paid for it and the current value....Nice to know I should have no trouble increasing it next time or before if required :)

I wasn't impressed with their breakdown option of recovery only, so I took out the Start Rescue 3 star policy to run alongside https://www.startrescue.co.uk/breakdown-cover

Yes roll on Springtime and get out and about :drive: :cheers:

Their site is down again :headscratch:
That's a little later than usual, and painfully close to a local show :? I will have to confirm at a later date....

That does look like a nice car. As Andy says, people will pay a premium for such a good original condition car.
