Lot details

Registration No: UAE423N
Chassis No: BBECND29393

  • 84,000 recorded miles, matching engine and chassis numbers
  • Fitted with power steering and electronic ignition
  • Said to be `excellent' overall with manual gearbox

In production from 1969 to 1974, the MkI Capri has become a motoring icon. The introduction of the Essex 3-litre V6 engine into Ford's European `Pony Car' offered plenty of `go' to match the `show' and it is unsurprising that rare survivors such as the GXL offered here are now extremely sort after amongst collectors. Due to a short production run the GXL has always been relatively scarce and was the first of the line to feature a quad headlamp arrangement. Finished in white with brown interior trim UAE 423N registers just 84,000 recorded miles and boasts matching chassis and engine numbers plus being Ziebarted. Subtly uprated by a previous owner, the specification includes; stage one unleaded cylinder heads, Kent cam kit, alloy timing cog, four pot front brake calipers with standard rears, manual choke conversion, MK2 V6 power steering including engine cross member, electronic ignition, thicker anti-roll bar, Bilsteins front and rear from Mk3 2.8, AJD TCAs and Stag headlights for which the wiring has been adapted to suit. Said to be in truly fine condition in respect of its bodywork, paintwork, engine, manual transmission and interior this desirable Capri is waiting to be enjoyed.

PLEASE NOTE: Available by separate negotiation is the registration number '3 GXL'
