I had been looking out for a Capri for a while, but was struggling to find one that was just right. Again, just
like the Cortina finding a 2.0 was the biggest problem, as I wanted it to be used as my daily drive. The majority
were 1.6, 2.8 or 3.0's
After looking for about 6 months I saw this Capri for sale just down the road with a sign in the window. I had seen
it around as well as at Harpenden Classics on the common. After seeing it I phoned up to get more details on the
2.8i front stuts
lowered 1.5" all round
polybushed rear end
4 branch manifold
Sierra 5 speed box
1/2 leather Recaros
Black vinyl roof
In the end it had to go, as I needed the money to buy a more practical car although I said at the time it would not be the last one!
And 3½ years later I bought another one..
The guy who owned it before me had rescued it from a scrap yard then made the modifications, and had it resprayed by a
mate. It was originally silver, but that's as much history as I know.
It cropped up on eBay a few years after I sold
it, still looking ok - apart from the sear bolsters which hadn't worn well:
At Harpenden Classics on the Common about a month before I bought it:
