November 2021 Classics Auction

 
  Lot 82
 

1984 Ford Capri 2.0-Litre
Huge spec fitted with a Zetec engine on Throttle Bodies.

Registration - B966 RVM

Chassis No. - WFOCXXGAEXER21144

M.O.T. - May 2022

Odometer - 82,000

Capris are very much in vogue these days and anybody seeking a 2.0-litre one will definitely want to know about ‘B966 RVM’. It has apparently been the subject of a nut and bolt restoration, during which it was resprayed in its original colour of metallic bronze – even the underside is now colour-coded. Along the way its original Pinto powerplant has been replaced by a 2-litre Zetec Black Top unit that’s equipped with a Weber ECU and quartet of throttle bodies. The enticing picture is completed by a new set of Minilite style wheels shod in equally fresh Uniroyal tyres. The vendor unsurprisingly now views the bodywork, Shark Grey leather/cloth interior trim, engine and five-speed manual transmission as all being in ‘excellent’ order, and the paintwork as ‘good’. He is now offering this very smart package complete with strut brace, sunroof and mud flaps, plus a history file with receipts totalling in excess of £30,000 for work done. A unique proposition.

Ford’s Capri was launched at the 1969 Brussels Motorshow. The fastback Coupe was intended to do for Europe what the Mustang had done for the USA – ie it was our ‘pony’ car, and would have been called Colt had Mitsubishi not bagged the name first. The monocoque body featured independent front suspension by MacPherson struts and a live axle with leaf springs at the rear. Braking was by discs/drums and the steering by rack and pinion. The newcomer was offered with a generous choice of engines. Gearboxes, like the powerplants, tended to be common to the Cortina and the model was offered in numerous levels of trim/specification – GT, E, L, X, XL, GXL, XLR etc.

In summary:

  • The subject of a nut and bolt restoration
  • Nowadays powered by a 2.0-litre Ford Zetec Black Top unit rather that its original Pinto one
  • History file containing £30,000 worth of receipts
