1986 Ford Capri 2.8 Manual
The Capri Mk III was intoduced in March 1978, and sold very well. The new styling cues, echoed the new design language being introduced at that time by Ford of Europe's chief stylist Uwe Bahnsen across the entire range. In addition, the Mk III featured improved aerodynamics, leading to improved performance and economy over the Mk II, and the trademark quad headlamps were introduced. The bonnet's leading edge was pulled down over the top of the headlamps, making the appearance more aggressive.
At launch the existing engine and transmission combinations of the Capri II were carried over, with the 3.0 S model regarded as the most desirable model although the softer, more luxurious Ghia derivative with automatic, rather than manual transmission, was the bigger seller of the two V6-engined models.
The car has had 2 owners and comes with the original bill of sale and some repair bills. The car has just had all new brakes, injectors, and the fuel tank and fuel lines have been cleaned. The car has had a Full Service in the last month.
