Car: 1971 Capri GT V6

Specs: 3- litre litre Es­sex V6, Borg Warner 35 auto

Chat: Steve’s Capri GT V6 showed ev­i­dence of a few old bat­tle scars, but it was still an eye- catch­ing car though, look­ing orig­i­nal, and a very sound base to work from. Steve has only had the car since Au­gust 2016 and it was orig­i­nally pur­chased from a Ford Dealer in nearby Quean­beyan. It ap­pears that the first owner wanted the power of a V6 but saw no need to shout about it, as this GT was or­dered without the usual side stripes, black­out panel on the bon­net and Su­peroo de­cals. Steve is now go­ing right over the car, restor­ing what­ever needs at­ten­tion, and has a re­spray planned for this year.

Sprint-spec Mk2 Es­cort runs a 2-litre Zetec.
