Capri 2.0 Laser
A truly magnificent Ford Capri 2.0 Laser with just 18643 miles since new. Fanatically cherished from brand new by just 1 private owner until July of 2015 and has since formed part of a very impressive private collection.
We are extremely pleased to offer what we feel to be a remarkable and quite possibly unique opportunity to purchase what must be one of the very best Capris to have reached the open market. Presented in a very unmolested and un-restored condition, the car looks like an exceptionally well cared for 2 year old vehicle. With prices of exceptionally good calibre Capris recently breaking the £37000 barrier and another coming to market within the next couple of weeks that is expected to reach around the £50000 mark, this exceptional example represents a very wise investment.
Finished in factory gloss Black, the condition can only be described as outstanding! Still wearing every single factory fit panel, the car just lines up absolutely perfectly. The panel gaps are linear straight and the paint still retains an exceptionally deep and consistent shine. The paint finish still has its "orange peel" effect that was typical of Fords produced throughout the 80s. We have been reliably informed that this car has never been used in wet conditions and although we cannot guarantee this, we would say that judging by the condition, it is very likely to be correct. Only a couple of very, very tiny well covered stone chips are visible upon very close inspection. In addition to this there is a very small/light mark on one of the plastic corner bumpers and a very light indentation to the near side of the rear bumper. Although we could very easily rectify these, we would prefer to keep the car as original as possible. Please appreciate that we are being overly critical with this and to be honest, we have not seen a Capri this good for at least 25 years...the car is simply fantastic.
Upon opening the door, it is like stepping back to 1986 and it is very difficult to believe that this car is approaching 30 years old! Everything from the carpets, door cards, seats, headlining and dashboard are as close to new as you will find. The original radio cassette is still present and in fully working order. The dashboard is remarkable...the only addition being a very small Red Led positioned on the right hand side which is for the alarm system. The boot carpet and plastics are remarkable and the boot floor is as good as we have ever seen. The original jack and tools are present and still in an unused condition.
Wheels and Tyres:
The 5 alloy wheels are completely unmarked and the correct manufacturer date stamp is visible on all wheels. Still wearing the correct Goodyear Grand Prix h70 185/70/13 tyres which are completely scuff and crack free.
Engine and Transmission:
The very clean engine bay is the home to the correct, unmodified 2.0 unit. The automatic choke is in perfect working order and the car fires in to life instantly and soon settles to an almost silent idle. The 5 speed gearbox is superb and has a nice direct, smooth shift with no play in it whatsoever. The engine bay itself is in a very lovely, undetailed state...all the correct stickers are present...it is all within keeping with a very loved and cherished example...simply wonderful!
First registered on the 1st August 1986, it is more than evident that this Capri has lead a very sheltered life. It has been cherished since day 1 and fanatically looked after. All the original hand books and literature are present and correct. The service book is present and stamped and the car has been serviced on its miles rather than an annual basis. The last service was carried out in July last year and the car had covered 18602 miles...so, 41 miles ago! This was a major service and included the camshaft drive belt and pulley.
There are also a host of old MOT certificates present within the history file. With a current MOT until the 20th August 2016 the car is fully ready for the show season. Complete with 2 sets of original keys.
