Classic Ford - - YOUR CARS -

From: New Zealand Car: Mk1 Capri “My Dad loves your mag and has been buy­ing it for years,” says Ray’s son, Bra­dyn. “He’s owed Fords most of his life hav­ing served his ap­pren­tice­ship at the lo­cal Ford garage in Gore in the mid ’60s. He’s had Ze­phyrs, Anglias, Corti­nas, Fla­cons and a Mk1 pre-facelift 1972, XLR 1600GT Capri which he’s owned for as long as I’ve been around.”

“Over the last two years he’s to­tally re­stored it and fi­nally got it on the road ear­lier this month. He’s done all the me­chan­i­cal stuff him­self and re­con­di­tioned ev­ery­thing, as well as fit­ting elec­tronic ig­ni­tion, while the body­work and paint was done by a young guy here in Geral­dine — it’s the orig­i­nal Sil­ver Fox, and the only change he has made is to the satin black bon­net which he’s made Ger­man- style with the black run­ning over the front wings and around the door frames and rear glass. He still has the Rostyle rims but cur­rently prefers Minilites.”

Satin black added to the tops of the wings, too — Ger­man-style.
