We are delighted to offer this very original Ford Capri onto the market for the second time. NWG 711X was first registered on the 2nd October 1981 and left the factory in the rare metallic colour of Crystal Green with Beige upholstery. The car records a mileage of 86,700 that is commensurate with the smart, original upholstery. The Capri originally came to us from a regular customer in Norwich who had used the Capri on a regular basis, often using it for commuting from home to his business. To prove reliability further, we drove the Capri over 200 from Norwich back to our North Yorkshire premises and the car performed faultlessly with no issues. On arrival we had the Ford re-painted as the paint finish was original but dull and we soon sold the car to a local customer who sold his modern car in order to own a second classic car that was capable of everyday use. Since May 2014, the Ford has covered 1500 miles and has proven to be totally reliable and has been thoroughly enjoyed.
NWG 711X performs superbly on the road and was fully serviced by us prior to recent everyday use. We replaced spark plugs; contact set, replaced the engine oil and filter, replaced brake pads, fitted new rear brake shoes and fitted new bearings to the strut tops. Since preparing the car it has been delightful to drive the engine is strong and both sounds and performs perfectly, the gearbox changes smoothly and the car is ready to use and enjoy. The cult classic Ford has tight, precise steering, sharp brakes and handles superbly. There is no doubt this relatively low mileage, original car has been superbly maintained and is most certainly on the button and ready to go. Prior to its original arrival with us, the Ford had been treated to new rear springs, new master cylinder, rebuilt carburettor, new radiator, new distributor and new camshaft bearings, bushes, cambelt and head set.
The Ford Capri looks sharp with an excellent straight body and stunning Crystal Green paintwork. The Capri does not show signs of the typical model rust issues and has clearly never been left to deteriorate. The wheel arches are superb as are door bottoms and lower wings. The underside is impressive and remarkably original confirming it is an excellent original car that has not required any major bodywork. The engine bay is fairly clean considering the car has been in regular use and the interior has nicely aged and retains a lovely patina. This is an excellent opportunity to purchase a strong, largely original car that is capable of everyday use.
