1985 Ford Capri Laser 2.0
The estimate is a give-away that this isn’t any old Laser, but one that’s covered a trifling 4500 miles from new. Sold new by Finchley dealership WH Perry the owner, said to be a Ford enthusiast, used the car sparingly, but didn’t skip on any of the annual services until 1997 when he laid it up, with 3695 miles on the clock. It came out of storage in 2006 and had little use up until 2009 when the owner died and it subsequently passed to his daughter. While so many low-mileage Capris coming to auction tend to be 2.8s, this 2.0-litre makes a pleasing change, and it rightfully deserves a caring owner to keep it in its current remarkable condition.
