EXTERIOR
This legendary and genuine Capri 3.0S finished Ford Oyster Gold boasts an impeccable appearance with a perfect mirror paint finish.  The subject of an extensive full restoration by renowned and highly respected East Sussex based Restore-A-Ford in 2011, the resulting achievement is simply amazing with the original 3.0S being soda blasted as a starting point.  A fully detailed underside will delight the avid enthusiast on the show circuit with colour coded anti-chip coating and powder coated components laid bare in full splendour.  Rare factory options such as the steel tilting/sliding roof and tinted glass remain fitted along with all exterior trim items and decals being pristine and factory correct.  This very rare, sporting, top-of-range for performance Capri simply breathtaking.

INTERIOR
This iconic models interior is distinguished by seats fully trimmed in the Chocolate/White Carla fabric (code A1) with Chocolate Savannah fabric surrounds.  The upholstery is spotlessly clean and free from wear as is the matching deep pile carpeting, brand new at the time of restoration.  The three spoke leather sports steering wheel looks factory fresh, and all controls and gauges fully function including the two-speed heater fan and analogue quartz clock.  The soft feel dashboard is free from cracks, however two tiny splits to the outer surface around the offside A pillar can be seen and the rear package tray is not fitted.  The perforated headlining is clean, tight and free from discolouration.  This fantastic 1970’s interior remains exactly true to Ford’s intentions, truly brilliant.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
With a choice of three engines this model is fitted with the range-topping Essex 3000 V6 with twin choke carburettor.  A power output of 138bhp at 5000rpm enables a top speed of 124mph and a 0-60 dash in 8.0 seconds.  A manual choke conversion has been carried out.  Raising the bonnet reveals a fully detailed and polished engine compartment with chassis stampings and imposing Essex lump dressed in Ford Motorcraft service items.  An intoxicating burble through the stainless steel exhaust system is very addictive!  The 4-speed manual gearbox with synchromesh to all forward gears operates correctly.  The correct sports gearshift knob is the finishing touch.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Brand new 7 x 13in JBW RS4 alloys are shod in new 205/60 R13 branded tyres.  The pristine detailed boot area houses the factory supplied standard Ghia style alloy spare and an almost unobtainable original jack with Ford Emblem and part number stamped.  An uprated braking system with 2.8 injection components enables swift and steady stopping capabilities.

HISTORY FILE
Registered new on 1st August 1979 and representing the ultimate desirable model by collectors, the Capri 3.0S is the most difficult car you promised yourself due to the rarity of the model.  The fully documented professional restoration carried out by respected Restore-A-Ford speaks for itself and offers a complete insight as to all works carried out with no less than 244 labour hours quoted, but exceeded due to the owners quest for the perfect Capri.  Numerous invoices, previous MOT certificates and documentation is included.  Last sold by KGF Classic Cars and likely to appeal to a Ford aficionado who is keen to enjoy the show scene and wants to dazzle the crowds with this prime example.
