Any 3.0-litre Capri

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - News Analysis -

From Se­ries I to Se­ries III, the 3.0-litre is a rare beast, and even ones need­ing work will be snapped-up. Launched in late 1969, some months af­ter the smaller-en­gined mod­els, the 3.0-litre was what en­thu­si­asts and the mo­tor­ing week­lies were cry­ing out for – a Capri with se­ri­ous grunt. The ear­li­est cars were all in GT trim, some with the cos­metic XLR pack, but the bet­ter-equipped 3000E soon fol­lowed on. In 1974 the Se­ries II model was launched, and this was su­per­seded by the Se­ries III in 1978, which re­mained in pro­duc­tion un­til 1981. To­day the Se­ries II is the rarest, but in Ghia trim it’s a highly de­sir­able pack­age.
