1988 Ford MkIII 2.8i Coupé
Registration no. D510 HKR
Chassis no. WF0CXXGAECFE65645
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 MkII, which benefited from a more practical hatchback body restyled along cleaner lines and devoid of the original's fussy detailing. 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 external 'brightwork'.
This Capri MkIII has the fuel-injected 2.8-litre V6 engine that replaced the old 3.0-litre unit in 1981. In completely original condition, 'D510 HKR' presents very nicely and drives well, with a super exhaust note. New tyres were fitted in 2016. MoT'd annually, mainly by Meadvale Garage in Redhill, the car has covered 65,009 miles from new and comes with certificates dating back to 1991. The history file also contains a V5C document, numerous service invoices/receipts, various Ford Capri Club magazines, Haynes manual, 2.8i workshop manual, and fresh MoT certificate (expires 18th February 2020).
