TDP 935Y 1982 Black 2.8i History Required

Postby mike37 » Sat May 06, 2017 12:26 pm

Hi I'm Mike from Cumbria and own an early 2.8i Reg TDP 935Y since Dec 2013

Looking for some history on it, all I know is I bought it from Hadrian Vernon from Swansea, who bought it from a farmer down in Somerset in 2012, where it had been sat in a cow shed from 1991.

Got it featured in July's edition of Classic Ford, so keep an eye out for it, any info anyone may have would be appreciated.Image

Cheers

Mike

TDP is a Berkshire registration so the car probably started life in that area.

I've added them on. When it had its restoration they left off the side mouldings. This is what it was like when they found it in the cow shed. Twenty years just sat there.

Yeh Andy it was on eBay once when the farmer was advertising it, and second once Hadrian had done the restoration, I've just finished off, still got interior to finish.

Great looking car Mike, just looked through the pictures, well worthy of a classic ford feature. I may drive up tomorrow, was planning taking the Capri but I havn't had it back from getting some work done. If I do I'll come & say hi :wave: [/code]

I think there's a form you can send off to the DVLC with an admin fee, and they will give you details of all the former keepers and dates when it changed hands etc.

Hi Mike
I just got my copy of the classic ford and your on there with that sweet Capri well done mate and what's funny my car is in there with my son at the wheel in the readers rides page 105 .
I don't think I can post any pictures up of the magazine as Its breaking some EU law .

All the best
Jason :beer:
