Footnotes

  • Inspired by the success of the Mustang 'pony car' in the USA, Ford introduced the Capri - 'The car you've always promised yourself' - to the European market in 1968. The Capri's imaginative fastback styling was a relatively new departure for the 'Blue Oval' but beneath the skin the car remained typically Ford, sharing engines, gearboxes and many other components with the rest of the range. The first major revision arrived in 1974 in the form of the Capri MkII, which benefited from a more practical hatchback body restyled along cleaner lines and devoid of the original's fussy detailing. The old V4 engines were dropped, the MkII options being 1.3 and 1.6-litre ohv fours, 1.6 and 2.0-litre ohc fours and the 3.0-litre ohv V6. Built from 1979 to 1987, the final (MkIII) Capri featured a new quad-headlight front end with chin spoiler, wide rubbing strakes on the flanks and black exterior 'brightwork'.
    This Capri MkIII has the fuel-injected 2.8-litre V6 engine that replaced the old 3.0-litre unit in 1981, as well as the desirable five-speed manual transmission. In running condition when viewed recently, the car would benefit from light cosmetic restoration, rewarding the fortunate new owner with presentable and an increasingly collectible 'modern classic'. Offered without reserve, 'C683 WFX' is expected to possess a Swansea V5C by time of sale.
