Description:

This Capri 2.8i ........

Was purchased in 1984 from Sharman and Ladbury in Melton Mowbury.

In 1985 the car moved to Aberdeen where it stayed in Scotland until 2017.

The V5 shows 4 previous keepers and it is understood the Capri was kept in storage for about 14 years until 2010.

The car has covered 52650 miles since new. The condition of the interior, engine bay mechanics and outward appearance are absolutely stunning.

She drives beautifully, gearbox is sweet, axle flawless and even the steering wheel feels like it's hardly ever been handled.

The dash is superb with no sign of the dreaded sun-cracking on so many Capri's kept outside for years.

The 3rd owner only retained the original Service Book showing services up to 10,000 miles from henceforth maintained by the owners. Unfortunately the only existing MOTs are the 2010 and 2017 ones. The document folder was lost between 3rd and 4th owner. So a limited history but the car says it all.

The car is so original that the engine bay rubber hoses still have the production 'witness' marks on them. All panels original Ford. Carpets unmarked.

Bumpers, over riders all genuine Ford.

Radio, heater, sunroof etc all working fine.

The exhaust system is genuine Ford from the manifolds to the tail pipes which are satin black as when it left the factory.

Pepperpot wheels were powder coated and were absoluley unmarked to start with.

Brand new top tint bronze windscreen fitted February 2018.

In 2017 the Capri was treated to a full repaint in genuine Ford Cardinal Red and 2.8i livery to do justice to the car, which in nearly every respect seems like it belongs in the showroom somewhere!

HPI check is clear.

The new owner will have a 12 month MOT from date of sale. A mechanical inspection at the buyers expense is welcomed.

The Ford Capri has just reached it's 50th Anniversary. So perhaps there's never been a better time to experience the car you always promised yourself. Keep that promise!

Description:

This Capri.....

Never thought I'd be seeing this one for sale again. I fully prepared this amazing Capri 280 in 2007 for a very exacting customer who had about 2 years of great pleasure from it.

The 280 then went to a collector in London where it has sat under cover since, with the occasional start and run to keep the 'juices flowing'.

The Capri 280 was treated to a Turbo Technics conversion by Turbo Technics themselves at their own factory after the owner had put a few thousand miles on to fully bed the engine in.

The F16 conversion entails a 2 stage turbo system with a wastegate valve that increases the bhp from 200 to 240 at the flick of a switch. The custom exhaust added the additional 10 bhp to make 240 from the 230 TT estimate.

This car is so rare I only know of one other 280 TT F16 and that's in France.

The pictures tell the story. But if you are interested the leather was fully re-Connollised, the wheels re-coated, and the bodywork was treated to a fabulous Standox Brooklands Green finish with glass finish lacquer machine polished to excellence.

When I delivered the car to the current owner half his street turned out to exclaim, "Oh my gosh - we've never seen a Capri looking like that!" (or words to that effect....).

As a driving experience, I have had over 37 Brooklands and 8 2.8 Injections. Several TT conversions included. The only Capri that has half terrified me was this one.

The brakes are properly upgraded, there is a Ford LSD prepared by the late Rex Paddock of Monmouth, but even so the car needs total respect.

Whilst this is the good news, the not so good news is that the owner has suffered recent ill health and now has reluctantly offered the car for sale.

If you think this is the car for you - couple of things:-

1. Contact the owner directly.

2. If you do not have the funds - don't call.

3. If you are serious, please arrange a viewing and/or test drive.

4. This car is very rare, very low miles and quite possibly unique in the Capri world. Whilst for sale now, if any dreamers approach the owner I'm pretty sure he will just withdraw the car and put it back under wraps.

So, for more details and genuine enquiries email me via this

website and I'll pass on the sellers details.

 

ps car located in London area.

I can personally vouch for this car - I prepared it.

Description:

This Capri.....

Was 'born' at UBM Ford Cardiff in 1984. She's 32 years old this year. And having spent a lot of time locked away in heated garages with de-humidifiers! she's back - and only 17 miles from her original owner.

I was almost resisting putting this advert on until the pictures can be taken as I have no proper words to describe this car.

I've never bought a Capri over the phone and without driving it, even when the covers were pulled off. That's the first time ever. There are only a few Capri S models left in the UK. Seen many at shows etc, never seen one like this.

I will list the observations below in some sort of order, trying to avoid the typical automotive superlatives and cliches, although it will be difficult.

1. Originality - this car is 100% original - except for the new battery - they just don't last 32 years. The wheels are pristine and date stamped.

The bodywork and panels - like new (newer than new)

The engine, gearbox (5 speed) like new and sweet as anything.

Interior looks and feels like never used.

2. Spare wheel and jack - never been out I'm told and I believe it.

3. Tyres absolutely original spec as fitted to the S Capri when launched.

4. Exhaust - Genuine Ford OEM part.

5. Drives like a Capri 2.0 S out of the showroom.

6. Everything that should work - does work.

7. Keepers - 3 in total - One of which was a Classic Car dealership who had it from the widow of the first owner.

8. Engine bay - every factory distinguishing mark that Ford left on the engine, and accompanying parts are still there exactly as it left the assembly line. If you know your Capris you'll understand what these represent.


There is a limited history file - the first owners bought the car in 1984, it was a second car. The husband sadly died and the wife of the owner, parted with the car soon after. In 2009 the car had done 11,000 miles. Unfortunately the original bill of sale and Service Book were just lost in the aftermath of the bereavement. I have what is available, some MOTs, some service bills, some Ford handbooks and a new blank Ford Service book from the 1980's - which is a nice accessory to start the cars fresh record in 2016..

This car has no question marks - it's the real deal. I have taken the unusual step of not stating the sale price.

Current auction estimates by Brightwells and Silverstone auctions is £18k - £22k. The fees involved usually mean that another 15% of the sale price evaporates between the seller and the buyer. (I've seen a very low miles 2.0 S at £25k - pity the over-riders on the rear of that car were put back on in the wrong position, but hey I'm just picky....)

For this reason, auction for my Capri S will be a last resort.

This Capri 2.0 S is finished in Cardinal Red, not to be confused with Rosso Red. It's a deeper shade and quite rare.

I can't say the paintwork is flawless, I think a fly landed on it once in 1985 and the offending footprints were immediately polished off!

If you want to register your interest feel free.


This is not a 2.8 Injection. It's a 2.0 S SOHC motor. Although it has a top speed of over 115mph - remember it's not a V6 - but a 4 cylinder. Also note that it is rack and pinion NON powered steering. These days when everything is powered, it's a shock to the system to find things don't just swish around with your little finger. The joys of classic Fords.


There will obviously be no test pilots, tyre kickers and time wasters. In fact I guess that a very small percentage of Capri fans will come for this one. Not because it's not desirable - but because you won't want it to get wet, park it, leave it outside. Plus it's not a DelBoy special - this is most likely a show winner - although it's never been shown to my knowledge - no sticky fingers and belt buckles near this car. So......

.........Please email me your best offer - I promise to respond ASAP.

Edit update:

 

Took Capri out for photoshoot today. Accosted by at least 6 people all wanting pictures. No-one could believe the condition of the car. One guy asked if I restored the Capri. I laughed and said, "The Capri has only be 'stored' not 'restored'. Nearly fell off his perch!

 

 

 

 
 
 
 

 

Capri 3.0 Ghia Auto

I get fed up with expressions like 'time capsule', 'time-warp' etc but there's no way to describe the feeling of gliding along the highwyas in a 38 year old Capri 3.0 Ghia. Expect to bump into Marty McFly any time.........



Viewing is essential to be honest.

 

The auto box is a Ford C3 and was factory rebuilt at a cost of £970 2 months ago. (auto boxes that are not used frequently just sludge up - fact of life) drives wonderfully. All gears smooth as silk, kick-down will delight, ready for any overtake.

The customary toots of approval from adoring motorists have exceeded even my best 280's so far. It seems this Capri 3.0 Ghia just sets the pulses racing.

Any inspection is welcomed. An engineers report is no problem - subject to terms and conditions I can discuss later.

A test drive will most likely seal the deal. The pictures sort of do the car justice - the light was failing when pictured (you try and find a dry day in December/January!!)

This Capri is so gorgeous and drives so well it practically owns the road.

Heated window works, rear wipers too, sunroof tilts and slides, heater motor both speeds.

The radio is original - with MW and LW. Works fine, although in 1977 FM was just wishful thinking...

The Janspeed system is so lovely - radio not needed!

In 2 years this car will achieve it's 40th birthday - expect it to rise in value.

A check on 'Where are they now' website suggests this is probably the only Arizona Gold 3.0 Ghia in the UK - if anyone knows different - call me.

Call me for a test drive and to discuss purchase details. Thanks Dr B. Tel 07974 000857

Description:

This Capri.....

Is the rarest of the rare. It's the 3.0 litre Capri Ghia automatic in Arizona gold with biscuit /biege vinyl roof.

It is SO Bodie and Doyle you can almost hear them screeching to a halt with 2 inches to spare between front bumpers!

The car is almost Concours. I say almost as I've never presented a car that is Concours, just usual show standard and stunning.

The Ghia has the amber / gold interior totally original. The steering wheel fitted is a Ford RS but the original Ghia wheel comes with the car - see pics.

Every panel is original. The motor is so sweet it'll make you cry! Especially when the new Janspeed exhaust system releases the renowned burble / growl from the tail pipes.

Each wheel is Ford Ghia, powder coated and shod with Goodyear NCT Eagles.

The glass is also original and etched with the reg number. Even the windscreen has the German sticker inside regarding sunroof operation.

Everything that is fitted to the vehicle operates as per the handbook.

I have all MOTs proving the mileage.

The Perana is V8 302 Mustang powered, with 5 speed Tremec gearbox.

UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE

STOP PRESS - totally brand new roller cam 450 bhp motor - from air cleaner to oil pan!!! Custom built in America - for November 2014 - new pictures when available.

On it's website under Project Gunston you will be able to find out most of what you need to know. The site is still being added to daily, so more will appear.

The sound, the sight and the driving is exquisite. A crowd pleasing, mind blowing experience.

Ask any questions but only if you are a serious contender for purchase. There is just no time in my schedule to field general chit chat about the car.

There are only two cars like this in the world. The first is the original A2 which sits at home in Cape Town South Africa. It is a race car - is not for sale - and has the scars, and bruises of a 42 year old racer.

The second car is mine. It is as near perfect as you can get in terms of appearance, finish, detail, sound and performance. My car hails from South Africa and has the 'blessing' of Basil Green whom I met in 2009 at the 3/4 point in my project. He thinks the Capri is the best of the Peranas.

This is a once in a lifetime chance to own and drive the legendary Gunston Capri Perana. There is no other Perana tribute car that comes anywhere near to mine. It was voted best project of 2010 by African Muscle Car forum.

What do you get if you buy the car?

1. The car.

2. All records, documents, receipts, photographs and video on DVD.

3. The number plate, spare paint from the same batch bought in South Africa.

4. Maybe the website.

As stated in the website - no test drives without full insurance and a fairly substantial deposit. Returned at end of drive. There will be no test pilots, 'racers' or dreamers involved in this purchase.

Email me via this site to ask questions or arrange a mutual time to speak on the phone.

Thanks for looking.

 

Email me or call with only genuine, serious offers regarding the prospective sale please.

 

NB - SPECIAL OFFER - This car will have 5 years free Classic Car insurance if bought in 2013. (subject to driver status of course)

Remember - this car is Zero rated for Road Tax. So all you pay is £40 a year MOT - not bad for a V8 Mustang powered car eh?

This Capri....

After an 8 year build program I am offering the chance for someone to purchase my Capri Perana Gunston Replica. The car is my personal project and has been a part of my life for a solid 8 years. Privately owned and a private sale.

This has been my personal project since 2005. There is far too much to say about the car other than, view the website at:-


http://www.gunstoncapriperana.com

The car is a millimetre perfect replica of the original South African Team Gunston Capri known as A2. The main difference being mine is a road going version of the car.

The attention to detail is exceptional. The car has won awards including Motorsport Car of the Year 2011.

The exhaust is hand made Long Life stainless and sounds exciting to say the least. Got friendly neighbours I trust??

All original panels - meticulously maintained.

I have removed nearly every blemish on the bonnet, wing tops etc in my usual no expense spared fashion.

The wheels are 15 inch Brooklands styled wheels with brand new tyres - 4 miles covered only.

Drives like new. Handles like new. Feels like new.

A quick look at Fleabay and Glumtree will show you the type of Capri's that are around these days - have a look around at what's out there then if you fancy a cuppa and a natter about V6 stuff - call me or email me.

A full inspection is welcomed. Car will come with new MOT if required.

Viewing is essential to be honest.

Any genuine sensible offer will be considered.

Description:

This Capri.....

Offered again for sale. It was recently sold to a lovely couple from Lancashire who really wanted a Capri 280. I didn't have one so I agreed to sell the 2.8i on condition that when I found a low miles 280 they would have first offer.

Well, 4 weeks later I did just that and delivered it to their door. The Capri 280 wasn't even listed for sale it was that quick.

Hence the blue 2.8i is now back here for sale again.

It's a 1986 Injection Special. Started out life in Cardiff 28 years ago, and has lived within 4 miles of the supplying dealership ever since. Last owner 25 years.

The car has covered 42,000 miles.

Limited slip diff of course.

Interior as per pictures.

Engine bay - well OK I have to comment here. Would I have done this to a Capri engine bay? Probably not. But when I saw the detailing and expense spent on the trim, hoses, polishing, chroming etc I had to admit - much rather an engine bay to delight the eyes than the usual 'slam the bonnet down and go for a strong coffee' kind of bay - and I've seen a few horror stories in my time.

In short this engine whilst heavily detailed could be returned to standard inside of 3 hours if you wanted to replace all hoses and remove the shiney bits which mostly just pull off. However this has grown on me and I love it now.

This Capri can be test driven and pre-approved before purchase. Mechanical inspection welcomed.

It a fabulous motor car and one of a few sub 50,000 mile cars in the UK today. Been lavished with love and TLC all it's life.

ps if no 280 had been found so soon, this 2.8i would still be living up North without a problem.

Capri 3.6 Injection Special

 

SOLD

 

CLICK IMAGE FOR FULL GALLERY OF PICS

 

Gallery of pics click picture or CLICK HERE

 

Disc brakes all round - Wilwood 4 pot calipers serve an uprated disc system and specialist pads make the car stop when and where you want it to.

Of course there is a limited slip diff and power steering.

The windows are electric.

The front and rear of the car show the one-off 3.6 chrome badge on the grill and a unique 3.6 Injection Special decal on the tailgate. Moores dealership branding are on the rear window sticker and the tax disc holder.

The exhaust system is a special bespoke system in stainless steel using 2.5 inch pipes and a balancer pipe across the two mid section pipes. The sound has been compared to a Maserati but thats a matter of opinion. All I know is that going through tunnels is a life changing experience!!

The interior is pretty much time warp and the whole experience is exceptional.

In 27 years of Capri ownership I have never had one like this. In fact I do not believe there is another 3.6 Capri Injection in the UK - unless anyone knows different?

If you like bog standard and unmodified Capri's then you'll be best advised not to come and see this car. However, if you understand and appreciate a fully professionally converted Capri that is faithful to the name but is SO different then come on down!!

You will have no peace when you drive this car - people will forever be giving adoring signals, taking pictures and regaling you with stories of their first Capri.... sorry but that's life in the world of my Capri's.

There is a good document history file showing the relentless dedication to servicing and maintenance that makes this solid, straight and honest car one of the most unique Capri's around.

As my regular visitors know I only do genuine authentic and unmodified (unmolested) Capri's. I have made a super exception in this case. The car is as stealth as you need. All the upgrades are pretty much concealed until you decide to unleash them.

The car can be viewed and road tested with prior arrangements. A test drive will require a Fully Comp policy beforehand. A mechanical inspection is welcomed at buyers expense. The inspection will have to be carried out on site and the car never leaves my garage for the test.

A 12 month MOT is standard.

The original 13 inch wheels will be supplied with the car - although due to improved front brakes the 13 inch wheels will not fit unless the discs are returned to standard 247mm and caliper brackets removed.

Description:

This Capri....

Where to start?

Well this particular Capri started life in 1985 as a 2.8i Injection Special. In 1995 the owner who bought it new from Moores Garage in Weybridge took the car to Torque Developments in Essex. The instructions were to build an engine that would transform the car. The motor was specially built to 3.6 litre specifications and utlized the 2.9 induction system together with stroked crankshaft and larger bores. The gearbox was sent to Turbo Technics for uprating.

The gear stick has a Quick shift action.

The cylinder heads have larger 3 angle cut valves, hardened seats, and is a fully unleaded conversion. The latest engineering work on the heads was by an ex -Williams F1 engine builder.

The fuel injection system is still K Jetronic and all mechanical - no ECU involved.

The car has been kept indoors all of its life. The term 'no expense spared' is over used for some cars, but in this case it's accurate. The Capri has been undersealed, Waxoyled and has all original panels.

Recent full top to bottom front to rear re-paint in Ford T9 black. Years of stone chips and minor touch ups did not do the car justice - and I require justice for my Capri's as most of you know. Hence the new paint and 3 days of machine polishing.

The interior was customized back in 1995 with hand made centre console, centre glove box with hand stitched leather. The door panels, clock surround and car entertainment system are finished in Walnut and highly polished. Even the glove-box is carpet lined for goodness sake!

The steering wheel is genuine Ford RS leather bound.

The sound system consists of a Pioneer CD / radio / MP3 player with rear sub amp and Pioneer 6x9 speakers in accoustic shelf. The door speakers are 5 inch. Each door has veneer trim. There is an 8 CD drawer unit in the console. The sound is very very nice.

The cars drives wonderfully and anyone who is familiar with the lack of puff from a standard 2.8 will appreciate the vast improvement. On a recent trip to France the car was as economical to drive as any of my past Capri V6 models.

The wheels are spanking new Brooklands styled 15 inch with new tyres fitted 1000 miles ago.

 

ps forgot to add - the cam is a new Ric Wood special designed specifically for this car

Every now and again there's an opportunity to acquire a piece of Ford Capri motoring excellence.

This particular car is one of those super rare cars that had the original owner for 30 years from new. This 2.8 Injection is a fabulous straight, honest and wonderful example of the car that has firmly cemented it's place in UK motoring history.

She drives beautifully, and from the moment you start it up and pull away the very sound and feel of the car screams 'like new, just like new'!! Steering wheel is still as textured to the feel as new.

The bodywork is all original and genuine. The interior is like a DFS showroom. Original radio / cassette player. Electric aerial.

Heater works great on both speeds. The dealership stickers are still in the rear window and on the tax disc holder.

This car is the 5 speed version. Axle and transmission are as you would expect for a 30k miler car.

Sports stainless steel exhaust system provides entertainment when the radio is off!

The wheels pictured on the car are 15 inch Brooklands 280 styled wheels with brand new Toyo tyres. For display purposes only.

The original Pepperpot wheels - all 5 of them - have been fully powder coated and come shod with Goodyear NCT Eagle tyres.

The car will be supplied with the original Pepperpot wheels and tyes.

A viewing and test drive are invited. I will hold the car for first refusal on a deposit of £500. Returnable if not sold.

Please contact me if you are wanting to buy and currently have the ready means to do so.

Description:

A rarity of a rarity yet again from the Doctor's surgery.

An original pre-registration Turbo Technics Capri 280. Fitted by Turbo Technics themselves.

This Turbo Technics car is one of my ex's and has been owned by the current owner for around 7 years. The time has come for Steve to part with his beloved Capri.

This car is all original apart from a new stainless Janspeed sports system integrated with the TT cross-over zorst system.

The car drives exactly like a 280 ought to - plenty of punch yet docile when needed.

The car has service history right up to last full service. Was off road for many years in storage. All Mots for when it was in use.

Leather Recarro interior completely re-Connollised.

Wheels re-lacquered.

Pirelli P700s just like the original car was shod with.

Will be supplied with original radio casette, original dash surround etc.

Full top rated Clifford Cat 1 alarm.

The car is currently owned privately by Steve and he is the seller. I will act as a conduit between him and genuine buyers.

I always treat enquiries in the exact order they come in - so whoever sends first gets first shout.

If you want this extremely desirable and stunning example please call Steve direct and put yourself out of your misery!!

Some tips and rules:-

1. Please arrange to see and test drive the car before you begin to even dream of haggling and beating down the price. The last two people Steve dealt with tried the same stunt. It's a waste of everyone's time to do telephone haggling over a car unseen. The price only becomes relevant when you've been to view.

2. There is a bottom line on this car - I know what it is and so does Steve - once driven you'll realise what this car is all about. That's the time to negotiate.

3. Any genuine buyer can contact me and I will pass on Steve's details to you. You will deal with him directly.

 

Deposit of £500 will ensure you have first refusal.

 

PLease contact me via the Contact form on this website. Thanks Dr B.

 

ps - I was reminded this week when Steve came down to buy the car from me. I said, "I have two 280's here, a Turbo and a standard. You can drive both, but I warn you now, once you drive the Turbo you'll not be going home with the standard 280" And the rest as they say, is history.

This very special and well known 280 deserves to go to an enthusiast who loves Capri 280's and is prepared to 'have and to hold, to honour, love cherish and obey'!!

This car has won many awards, Gold at CCI, runner up Concours, Car of the Year 2010 RetroFord Magazine etc.

This 280 has been loved and cared for by each owner, following a meticulous restification (is that a word?) by the last but one owner, the car has been stored in a heated space and done 200 miles in last 18 months.

All original panels etc the 280 drives, sits and handles like a true classic - except it feels almost new in some ways.

Engine sweet, gearbox light, clutch lighter! Interior is beautiful.

Stainless Janspeed exhaust - sounds wonderful.

Brand new Clifford Alarm and central locking system worth £600.

The pictures tend to tell the story, but the Service book, recepits MOTs, tax discs etc tell the rest.

Regular visitors to my site will know I only have the best 280's and this is no exception.

There is 12 months MOT., it has Pirelli P700 tyres thus looking a bit 'Time Warp'.

Everything that should work - does work.

Fabulous piece of motoring this Brooklands.

For test drive please ring or email. Will accept a deposit of £1000 to hold. Refundable should you turn up and decide not to buy.

If sold during November at the full asking price - car will have 12 months MOT and a full tank of fuel.

Call Dr Brooklands on 07974 000857

If you want a 'working' showcar that you're not afraid to drive this will be it.

For extra size pics - just ask me.

 

NOTE:

Please call if you want this car. Brookies like this just don't stay long. The last one, the 11k miler was sold within 5 hours of the pictures being posted.

Genuine, cared for 280 that required only the Dr B touch to release the beauty again - only better!

Sitting on Pirelli P7 original fitment tyres.

The pictures in the gallery opposite taken 14th October 2012.

This Capri 280 is a one off car. Super low miles, two registered owners.

The car will come taxed for 6 months and MOT for 12 months.

The Capri 280 has covered only 800 miles since 2005. Full history, service, MOTs, all laminated document history folder.

I'll let the pictures do the talking.

Ask any questions by phone.

The first deposit of £1000 secures the car - simple as that.

The Doctor supplies the best of this you can be sure. My reputation for Brookies is always on the line and I don't disappoint!

Please email me with your details and I shall get back in touch.

Dr Brooklands 07974 000857

 

ps There are very occasionally sub 4000 milers around and some sub 20k milers around, but this one will exceed your expectations of a 26 year old Capri 280. The car is a cert for show winner, but can be driven every day if you wish. This is not a museum piece even though it has museum miles.

The only test you have to apply is this:- 'Do I want to spend a lot of my hard earned on a Capri 280?' and if the answer is yes, do I then want to have to spend any more of my money on the car once I've bought it?'

 

If the answer to the second question is No - then you need to come and see my 280's.

 

pps - I have learned the hard way that negotiating via email and texts leads nowhere - so initial email will have to be followed by phone conversations.

is another old favourite of the Doctor.

Sold in 2006 to Nick and Sue in Ross on Wye, the car was gorgeous when sold.

Nick put 400 miles on the car in 6.5 years!! And it's just as stunning now as when he bought it. Loads of polishing and TLC has kept it pristine. Well done Nick!

Car is a beautiful example, straight, honest and showroom, inside, outside and under bonnet.

Car is listed as For Sale due to the nice chap who put a deposit on the car, having driven all the way from Devon could not fit inside the Capri properly!!

So a warning to anyone with 35" inside leg measurement - do not apply!

If your inside leg is less than 35" or you feel appropriately morphable - give me a call.

Taxed til December 2012, MOT March 2013.

Dr Brooklands 07974 000857

ps to quote the lanky chap "The car is 102% better than described - I just can't fit it".

Description:

This 280 ........

is one of those 'project' cars that I intended to do one day.

The Capri 280 is a 7 owner car that has covered 75k miles. It was in some ways neglected over the past few years to the extent that you see in the pictures.

The current owner Richard tells me that he just doesn't have the time to restore the car. (tell me about it!!).

So he offers the car here as a very good base for a restoration.

If I had time and space you wouldn't even see this on this page today.

Here's the low down on the car:-

1. Engine starts well, no knocks, smoke or rattling, very good oil pressure.

2. Gearbox all gears easily selectable and quiet.

3. Clutch clears and no slipping good pedal.

4. Axle cannot hear whining but sounds like a wheel bearing has gone.

5. Floor pan is in excellent condition not rusty or welded up.

6. Sunroof tilts and slides.

7. 7 previous keepers up to 12/10/2003

8. windscreen has a crack.

9. new Magnex stainless exhaust - a tad 'rorty' according Richard

Possibility of some panels with the car at extra cost!!

Anyone who knows Capri's and can turn their hand to the obvious jobs seen in the pics would likely spend about 3 months doing the car.

I can give some guidance if required as to what's needed but the pics tell it all.

Richard wants a quick £4750 to let the car go right now.

SELLING? know of someone selling?

Know of a Capri 280 for sale? Low miles, excellent condition?

If you put me in touch with a seller and I buy the car I will pay you a finders fee of £300

(terms and conditions: must not be a relative of yours!! and only if I haven't seen it already)


 

See Home Page for details of a new initiative that could well take off regarding 'project' Capri 280's.

 

 

Note: Something that has occurred in the past couple of months is that I am being offered Capri 280's at prices that are way above what they are worth. When I ask why so high, I am told that Capri 280's seem to fetch high prices on my site!

Hello - there's a reason for that. I spend months preparing the cars and eliminating virtually every blemish, restoring leather, paintwork, wheels, trim etc etc.

It takes a lot of time and money to get the results I do.

If you have a Capri 280 for sale and it's not in show winning condition then expect it's value to be much less than a restored car.

The main reason that Capri 280's have been raised to the level they are is because this site and my work has brought them there. So, what I'm saying is, just because there's a 280 badge on your car does not mean it's suddenly worth much more.

The majority of 280's I go to see are average. Some are very special but most are well used and I walk away from more than I purchase.

 

for PARTS  click here 

Why buy a Dr Brooklands 280?

1. No need to spend any money on it

2. All original Ford panels

3. No welding.

4. Fully MOT tested

5. Show winning finish to paintwork

6. Interior leather awesome

7. Drives and sounds great.

8. Basically all the work is done or didn't need doing.

So if you want a 'project' 280 don't buy one of mine!

 

 

Probably the best Capri 280's in the world..............

Brookies always in the pipeline - if you want to be included in the Wanteds list - just pop me an email stating your requirements and budget. thanks Dr B.

Factoid: The Governments relentless attack on our disposable income has meant a number of things - higher inflation, drop in house prices, over 160 more stealth taxes, higher fuel, higher energy, pensions destroyed & drop in standard of living and...... it will get worse! Most of this was avoidable as will be shown one day. However, it's not all bad news. There's at least one commodity that's maintaining it's value - a classic Ford. To be specific a classic Capri 280. Some folk are virtually investing in a 280 as either a nest-egg or at least an asset that can be released for cash if circumstances dictate.

Capri 280's of the standard on this site are a good investment and they give the driving experience a boost when all we hear is bad news. There's one thing that this government hasn't penalised us for yet and that is the width of your grin! Only a matter of time til 'Grinning with intent' is an arrestable offence (well tuning to Radio 2, reaching for your glasses, scratching yer nose etc will soon render you liable to incarceration.

Smile on, get a Capri 280 and drive it with a 20-20 grin on your chops. If you are stopped by the Attitude Police just say you have a Grinning Permit signed by Dr Brooklands - that ought to do it. See you in jail.............

Offered here is a chance to own possibly the lowest mileage Capri 280 for sale in the world today.

This car has covered 3,450 miles from new. That's a yearly average of around 160.

The car is totally original. It is period correct and authentic.

The current owner bought it summer '07 and now realises he has no time to use it. He considers it unfair to lock it away in his heated garage and thereby denying anyone else from seeing or enjoying the car.

Hence it is offered exclusively here.

The next owner will be someone who appreciates the rarity of such an example of 280 history and who has the space and budget to accommodate such a vehicle.

If you are a person who meets the requirements then please call Andy on ********** to discuss viewing and possibly buying this motoring legend.

Andy is a shrewd businessman but also appreciates that his Capri 280 ought to go to someone else now who can fully exploit this lovely motor car.

 

You won't see this car anywhere else.

"This 1987 Capri 280 (Brooklands) is one of the best cars I have ever seen in a lifetime of classic car ownership! I have owned this car for the last 8 months and have only driven it 50 yards from one of my garages to the other. The reason is that the car is in absolutely “Concourse” condition!"

The previous owner, bought the car in 2004 and did a rolling full nut and bolt restoration over the next 3 years. (Photographs available) Since then it has won virtually every show it has entered, including last years NEC Classic car, where it was the main car, on the prize winning Capri Club stand, where I first saw it."

If you are a genuine buyer please call Chris Parnham on ***********

Ed Note: I saw this 280 at NEC in November and would have bought it myself it was that good looking! (I promised my wife I would only come back with a crimping tool from the NEC )The only reason this car is on my website is because it looks like one of mine! Dr B.

Description:

A departure from the usual on my site. A unique exception and only because this is probably the best Capri 2.8i in the UK if not the world!!

A potted history.

D240 was a family runabout until 1994 when it was totally stripped to a shell and rebuilt using brand new ford parts or originals that were repainted. This was to allow the car to be used in the Autoglym Concours D'Elegance,in 1995 and 1996 it won its regional finals and reached the grand finals at NEC.in 1997 it was parked up under a cloth in a garage and left until bought 5 years ago.

Since then it has been taken to shows and has done very well - in 2007 it won a gold award at the Capri Club Nationals and best in show at Classic Wonderland, also Best in Show at Capri Day at Crich. It was also featured in the Concours Corner section of RetroFord magazine in 2007 and was called "the best 2.8 capri in the country" service records and the service book are included as well as all old mots.

Price: POA

Description:

Another super rare Capri 280.

One owner from new. Original bill of sale.

Authentic and genuine car.

Car is stunning. Has been virtually unused since 1990.

18 years in storage meant minor scuffs and pretty dull lacquer - so, true to Dr B traditions car has been totally re-finished in original Brooklands Green. All pictures will show my needless, but usual quest for perfection!

Everything is genuine and original except the 2007 coachwork finish.

Awesome car ready for the shows or weekend cruising.

Maiden voyage today 21st April 07. Super performance. Silent running. Feels like it isn't run in yet. A time-warp experience.

I will fit a full brand new Janspeed Sports exhaust system (inc manifolds) if wanted - just add £600 to price.

Use the Contacts page to arrange for pics and a test drive.

This car will be at NEC in November - Classic Motor Show if not sold before then (mind you, I said that about the last 2 low milers and they've gone)

Model: Capri 280 TT
Colour: Brooklands Green
Price: POA call 07974 000857
Miles: 42,000
Description:

For the ultimate enthusiast.

My ex-240 bhp Capri 280 - probably the best example of the Turbo Technics car.

One of about 6 ever made. Prepared in 2006 to extremely high standards.

This car is wicked. Pure and simple. Disrespect it and you are history.

Comes with full Thatcham CAT 1 alarm, Tracker (Lifetime subscription) , fully re-finished leather, paint, wheels. New almost everything in the fuel department - just to be certain of excellence.

This is the F16 version. Turbo Technics in Northants were commissioned to fit the full 240 bhp system inc. special exhaust in 1989 - when car was fully run in and ready for the work to be carried out inc. engine compression, gearbox uprating etc etc.

The car in 200 bhp mode is demonstrably quicker than any F26 or F9 Turbo Technics car. Been proved.

In 240 mode it is ballistic to the point of terrifying. Don't believe me? Come for a test drive.

A Capri 280 like no other in the U.K. This car is not cheap and the price reflects performance, condition and rarity.

If any of this sounds familiar you're right - Dr B owned this car last year and due to reasons beyond the new owners control Dr B has it to sell again. Reasons unconnected to the car itself I must add!!

Good document history. Bills of sale etc.

Chance of a lifetime I reckon. I've never seen another 240 bhp out there - just been told there were about 6 made and they were the 230 F16 version.

Call only if you are deadly serious about owning this piece of classic performance motoring history.

As the Para's say '99% need not apply'

Capri 280 Brooklands

SOLD

and another 280 sold

 

 

 

 

Year: 1987
Make: Ford
Model: Capri 280
Colour: Brooklands Green
Price:

Miles: 85,000
Description:

This is one of the better Capri 280's around. This car has been lovingly kept at no regard to cost. Affectionately known as 'Honey' she has been treated to new paint and the leather re-coloured and refurbed where necessary.

Honey sports a Ford genuine RS front spoiler and rear Turbo tail.

Interior and exterior are gorgeous and the car gets admiring glances wherever she goes.

Chris has had this car for around 6 years and being very much in the 'Ford know' has only ever used genuine Ford stuff on the car (with the exception of the front wings - that have been replaced with replica versions and look the biz).

This Capri 280 is genuinely a most reluctant sale but being realistic she has to go to make way for another Capri......

No point in offering a silly price - the car is worth the money and is a huge cut above the ebay specials you see on a weekly basis.

 

You will find he is a 'diamond geezer' who will be totally up front with you and will probably strike a great deal with you. All you need is the budget and the desire to own this car pretty soon.

Need spares and genuine Ford stuff for Honey in the future? Well you came to the right bloke 'coz Chris is the Man - just ask him.......

Caution: he knows his car and will not suffer canvassers, tyre-kickers and wannabees very gladly!! If you want to sample the delights of 'Honey' just make the call - trust me!

Model: Capri 2.8i
Colour: Black
Price:

Reserved

 

Miles:

30,300 miles - average 1000 miles per year.

 

Description:

Space desperately needed here - thus, a one time price reduction for 28 days only.

Every now and again there's an opportunity to acquire a piece of Ford Capri motoring excellence.

This particular car is one of those super rare cars that had the original owner for 30 years from new. This 2.8 Injection is a fabulous straight, honest and wonderful example of the car that has firmly cemented it's place in UK motoring history.

She drives beautifully, and from the moment you start it up and pull away the very sound and feel of the car screams 'like new, just like new'!! Steering wheel is still as textured to the feel as new.

The bodywork is all original and genuine. The interior is like a DFS showroom. Original radio / cassette player. Electric aerial.

Heater works great on both speeds. The dealership stickers are still in the rear window and on the tax disc holder.

This car is the 5 speed version. Axle and transmission are as you would expect for a 30k miler car.

Sports stainless steel exhaust system provides entertainment when the radio is off!

The wheels pictured on the car are 15 inch Brooklands 280 styled wheels with brand new Toyo tyres. For display purposes only.

The original Pepperpot wheels - all 5 of them - have been fully powder coated and come shod with Goodyear NCT Eagle tyres.

The car will be supplied with the original Pepperpot wheels and tyes.

A viewing and test drive are invited. I will hold the car for first refusal on a deposit of £500. Returnable if not sold.

Please contact me if you are wanting to buy and currently have the ready means to do so.

 

thanks Dr B.
