Clas­sic Ris­ers

Ford Capri 280

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

It’s hard to be­lieve to­day – when a Capri 280 can make £54,000 at auc­tion – that good ex­am­ples of these run-out Capris were read­ily avail­able for less than £5000 just 15 years ago. Val­ues re­mained vir­tu­ally static for years, but prices have re­ally taken off since the last re­ces­sion, with the last three years see­ing a par­tic­u­lar spike in val­ues. The good news is that the afore­men­tioned head­line-grab­bing auc­tion prices only ap­ply to re­ally ex­cep­tional, ex­tremely low-mileage cars, with more typ­i­cal ex­am­ples now fetch­ing closer to £15k. That’s three times its 2002 value.
