Nice car but a little optimistic as that is Capri money.

Saying that the Sierra is a little more practical.

What a lazy ad! https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ford-capri-2 ... Sw2wZdh69g

Sorry if you are on here, but barn find or not the car deserves better pictures and description than that.

:goodluck: All the same.

Yes but sometimes they are the best buys . I love a dirty dusty watch or clock . I had a box full a few years ago with two gold and at least 6 silver with a picture that looked like a child had taken :lol:

Good days don’t clean just sell . Also when you ask for some more pictures they get the hump :lol: never will understand these Non Human People :lol:

And now back to my medication or is it meditating :banghead:

I can put up with the dirt, but no pics of the offside, engine bay, rear seats, boot area and a better shot of the back at least would help :headscratch:

Another listing for a car that might be really nice, but the description and pictures are so bad how can we tell if it is or not? :doh:
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1984-Ford-Ca ... %7Ciid%3A1

The seller is really restricting their chances of selling it.

Not a cheap car so it needs the best pics possible,(As does any car imo) it doesn't take much longer does it :?

I actually live in Maidstone and fancied a look at this, sent the seller a couple of messages but received nothing back. Shame really, although the mrs would probably crucify me if I bought another one 🤣

I was talking to someone in the summer that made a trailer years ago for his 2.8 out of the back end of another Capri :)

I heard the rules on trailers had changed a couple of years ago with any new trailer having to be type approved and the change put many of the smaller trailer manufacturers out of business. This might be the reason no one has snapped this up, may just not be legal to do any more..

That wouldn't surprise me.

I would keep it in the garden as it is and put a couple of cushions where the rear seat was and some goldfish in the spare wheel well :lol:

Very nice indeed!
I'm not sure I'd want an auto box on a 2.8 though, but I'm sure it will be just the ticket for some people.
