1985 Ford Capri Laser 2.0 Litre
Warranted 55,300 miles from new

Estimated at £8,000 - £10,000

Lot details

Registration No: B20 LSR
Chassis No: GWF0CXXGAECET88523
MOT: February 2025

  • Highly original example with just three former keepers
  • Notably sound underneath and treated to a top-end engine overhaul
  • Supplied new by Jessups Ltd of Stamford, Lincs
  • Desirable Mineral Blue over Strato Silver colour scheme plus 'Laser' (LSR) number plate

Introduced in November 1984, the special edition Capri Laser featured a six-gauge dashboard, tinted glass, tailgate-mounted spoiler, leather-trimmed gear lever / steering wheel, body coloured grille / door mirrors, RS alloys, unique graphics, Black-painted bumpers and Truro cloth upholstery. Available with a choice of 1.6-litre or 2-litre SOHC four-cylinder engines allied to either five-speed manual or automatic transmission, the larger capacity variant was reputedly capable of 0-60mph in 9.6 seconds and 113mph. The very last Capri Laser rolled off the production line at Ford's Cologne, West Germany plant during November 1986.

Supplied new via Jessups (Stamford) Ltd to H.R. Wright, chassis GAECET88523 belonged to David Johnson for two months before being bought by Leslie Cornick on 12th June 2001. Treasured by Mr Cornick, a handwritten note on file details his request for the Capri’s inner wings to be sprayed with old engine oil as a preservative, while he was also responsible for sourcing the appropriate number plate ‘B20 LSR’ (2.0 litre Laser) for it. Entrusted to Misterton Garage (Ford) for a new camshaft and cylinder head overhaul in 2006, the four-seater was subsequently rolling road tuned by Sigma Engineering (2007) and treated to a new radiator (2015). Purchased by the current registered keeper from the late Mr Cornick’s estate during 2021, he had the Capri recommissioned for road use and re-sprayed in its factory colour scheme of Mineral Blue over Strato Silver. The original Truro II Grey cloth upholstery remains in situ but is protected by seat covers (the stitching on the driver’s pew having come apart). Warranted to have covered a mere 55,300 miles at the hands of its four registered keepers, this appealing Laser is offered for sale with V5C Registration Document, original book pack and MOT valid until February 2025.
