Body & Paintwork

The bodywork shows clear signs of long term dry storage throughout its life, with no corrosion issues.
With the last owner having had the car for over 12 years, and having kept the car garaged with only dry usage, it is obvious this example has been cherished.

Maintaining the majority of its original paint, this car still looks great today.
Original pinstripes appear to be in place throughout, and as mentioned, no corrosion issues are present.

The car has a few small age related marks,including a small ‘burn mark’ to the drivers front wing from over polishing in the past, the age related marks are very minor and overall it presents really well, and would be right at home at any local classic car show.

The badges and lights all appear to be original and again, present well.
Side & Rear window glass is original, with etching of the registration present & rear opening windows, operate and seal correctly.

A very nice Capri 2.8i in a great colour.
