A FORD Capri, once a common sight on our roads and now rarely seen, is one of the many classic cars entered into the Charterhouse auction at The Royal Bath & West Showground on Sunday 12th February.
“This Capri has bought by the vendor in Yeovil in 1979 when it was just two years old. For many years, it was his daily drive until he took it off the road after it nearly covering an amazing 250,000 miles,” said Charterhouse’s Matthew Whitney. “He then undertook a full restoration of the car using genuine Ford parts, but has hardly used the car subsequently.”
The Capri was launched in 1969 and the one going under the Charterhouse hammer is a Mark II 1600 GL finished in white with a black vinyl roof. It was first registered in 1977 and is estimated to make between £2,800 and £3,200.
