1987 Ford Capri 280

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Buying & Selling -

The day af­ter SWVA sold a low-mileage, orig­i­nal con­di­tion D-plate 28,000-miler 280 for £34,560, Sil­ver­stone re­sponded with a lightly re­fin­ished, 14,000 miles-from-new E-plate ex­am­ple that had been, in the auc­tion­eer’s words, re-fin­ished, i.e., cor­rect in ev­ery de­part­ment but, in some ways, bet­ter than when it rolled off the pro­duc­tion line. The re­sult was a stun­ning ex­am­ple, not be­cause it had the over-shini­ness of a fully-re­stored con­cours car, but be­cause it had a show­room floor fresh­ness. Paint, body, in­te­rior and un­der­side were in mar­vel­lous or­der – enough to war­rant a £35,00045,000 es­ti­mate, but pun­ters thought this one good enough to keep the bid­ding go­ing to £55,125.
