Footnotes

  • Introduced in the autumn of 1961, the Consul Capri was the first European-built Ford to carry the 'Capri' name. American in looks although styled at Dagenham, the Capri coupé was mechanically identical to the Classic saloon and so was its pillar-less bodyshell from the waist down, apart from minor changes to the doors. In July 1962 the 1.3-litre Classic and Capri were superseded by 1,500cc variants that brought with them more power, greater flexibility, a higher top speed and an all-synchromesh gearbox. Production of all types ceased in 1964 and today these rare modern Fords enjoy an enthusiastic following.

    This 1,500cc Consul Capri has a fascinating history, having been confiscated by the Metropolitan Police following its use in an armed robbery. Partially stripped, the car was kept in dry storage for a number of years before being sold and carefully restored by a previous owner. It is understood that the latter drove the car only sparingly, apparently confining its use to visiting classic car shows in Norfolk. In February 2012 the Capri was purchased at auction by the current vendor, who advises us that it has covered only 614 miles in the last four years, as documented by expired MoT certificates on file. Currently displaying a believed-genuine total of 55,495 miles on the odometer, the car is described as in generally very good condition and offered with sundry restoration invoices, current MoT/tax and V5C registration document.
