Sellers original description:
1972 Ford Capri Mk1 2000 GT Automatic.
Low Mileage 24,101
Here we have a 1972 Capri MK 1 Facelift Marine Blue with Gold Coachlines. The car itself is a very rare original example of a Capri Mk1 fitted with a three speed auto box factory fitted, the remainder were converted to manual boxes by previous owners. This Capri is in excellent condition inside and out. It has a Capri restoration certificate. Taking into consideration the exceptionally low mileage and general overall condition of the car, this was dated in 2006. The valuation then was £7500.00. This Mk1 is possibly one of the best few remaining on the road today.
Tan Interior New Carpets including overcarpets.
This Car was found in a garage after 23 years in 2006.
It has undergone restoration, a small amount of welding to lower inner wings and front panel.

The Ford Capri has been for a full bare metal respray, unable to source gold coach lines the car went to a sign writer who did the coach lines by hand to bring the car back to how it was delivered new by Fords.
