1987 Ford Capri 280 #876
This is not one to be missed!
An extremely rare opportunity to purchase a low mileage, immaculate Capri 280.
Only 27,000 miles from new!!
All correct GG chassis and engine numbers (Build number 876).
Selling on behalf of a customer, who actually purchased the car from us in December 2013.
Since purchasing the car, our customer has covered only 1 mile in the car, and has been in touch with us, explaining that the car is simply ‘too good’ to use.
The car is with us, and viewing is available, in fact we recommend you view this car to appreciate the condition.
The first to see will buy!
A truly stunning example with detailed under body, having no areas of corrosion at all!
Axle and sub frame still original satin black from the factory, clearly demonstrates this car has not been used in the wet.
Even all the nuts and bolts are still shiny!
The car has lots of receipts and paperwork to substantiate the low mileage.

Body & Paintwork
The bodywork on this example is fantastic.
The car has had a full professional respray a number of years ago, to a very high standard.
This was not due to any corrosion at all, it was due to over polishing and loss of paint lustre.
Anyone viewing the car will see that the respray was in no way due to any corrosion.
The bodywork has no dents, or scratches, no ‘bubbling’ anywhere, and gives a great shine.
Spoiler is in great condition, as are all lights, badges, and trims as of course you would expect from a car of this mileage.
The boot floor, underside of the doors and wheel arches are all without fault and without any repairs!
The wheels are also unmarked, and the windscreen has no whitening.
All round this car is ‘perfect’!
Interior & Trim
The interior in this car is simply unbelievable.
The carpets are still ‘plump’ and soft.
The original floor mats are still present and look almost brand new.
The gear knob, and steering wheel do not have any wear, all switches and stalks still operate correctly, and feel ‘tight’.
The seats are in fantastic condition, they must be one of the best sets of originally trimmed 280 seats left in existence!
Heater blower still functions correctly, the dashboard is not cracked, the original parcel shelf is without fault, and the boot struts work perfectly.
All glass is in superb condition, and the sunroof operates smoothly, and the seal is still ‘fluffy’ as it was when new!
The V6 noise is fantastic, and with the addition of a full Sportex exhaust system, it really does put a grin on your face.
The car starts first time, every time as you would expect.
The engine & engine bay themselves have been nicely detailed and the car has no oil leaks.
Receipts for various parts in recent years, to ensure the car continues to run perfectly, these parts include:
Distributor cap and HT Leads
The list goes on.
The car drives very nicely, the engine idles well, and pulls strongly.
The gearbox is smooth, and without whining or ‘crunching’
All brakes are in very good condition, having covered very little mileage since being replaced. (receipt is present)
Polybushes have been fitted (receipt is present).
All running gear is in great condition, as described above, original satin black finish and even the bolts look as new!
Suspension makes no knocks, or clunks, and the car is a pleasure to drive.
Tyres have very little wear on them, and the car wants for nothing.
