9 Ford Capri
The second half of 2015 saw Capris making a welcome return to the auction scene. V6-engined examples, especially early 3000GTs and 3000Es and last-of-the-line 280s, are the most highly-prized, but properly restored examples, even in poverty-spec 1300 form, will always sell well. Thanks to rust and high accident attrition rates, well-kept original examples are becoming very tricky to find and you’re always going to pay a premium
for them. Any half-decent Capri is still worth owning, but some body panels and trim replacement can be expensive – this is balanced out by the mechanical sides being straightforward to source and reasonably priced.
