Auction House – 1985 Ford Capri 2.8 Injection Special

Fancy a nice 1985 Ford Capri 2.8 Injection Special? This stunning example is currently on auction with Car and Classic…

Having run a 2.0 Laser back in the day, a 2.8 Capri was an itch that the current owner still wanted to scratch and he sought out the best example he could find from a dealer at the beginning of 2020. During the previous owner’s tenure which started in 2016, the car had been the subject of a complete restoration with work on the bodywork totalling over £5,500 and an engine rebuild with new pistons, main bearings, big end bearings and fast road cams (good for ‘up to another 22bhp’)  coming to over £1,200. The car was fully resprayed and a whole host of new and refreshed cosmetic parts such as bumpers and weather strips added. In addition, an uprated Quaife ATB limited slip differential was installed, together with new rear leaf springs and shocks. Inside, it’s not clear whether the fabric has been replaced but the leather has certainly been retrimmed.
A Sportex stainless steel sports exhaust had also been added which was a little loud for the vendor’s taste and so he sourced and had fitted a standard exhaust. A full service was also carried out at this point in June 2020. The stainless exhaust is also included in the sale should the next owner prefer to increase the volume.
Since owning the car, the seller has enjoyed around 600 miles but shortly after buying it he found another dream car which he managed to buy and now finds himself with more cars than he can sensibly use so has decide to let the Capri go.
