9 Ford Capri

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Auction News -

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.
