Details Specification

The Capri 3.0S is the ultimate evolution of one of the UK's favourite sporting cars of all time, and certainly one of the most thrilling to drive and the example offered here today, by virtue of it's mileage and outstanding condition, is a very rare find. CRW 987T was supplied new by Soans of Leamington Spa and is totally original in every way still wearing its original dealer number plates, ignition keys as supplied and, most importantly, documentation from Soans of Leamington outlining all work carried out by the Ford main agent in period. The mileage of 25,631 is warranted and is supported by previous MOT certificates and invoicing from Soans confirming what a pampered life this car has led from day one. The factory black body work is in stunning original condition with even panel gaps, tight shut lines and creak free bonnet, doors and tailgate.Internally the full pin stripe interior is in excellent condition throughout, retaining its suppleness and colour and the stitching and seams are even and tightly bound. Such is the vendor's enthusiasm for his Capri that he has agreed to include in the sale a set of fishnet Recaros to complement the car although the purist may prefer to retain the original seating.The dash is pure Capri dominated by the rev counter and speedometer, all gauges appear to work correctly and during a brief run all indicated normal operating temperatures. Turn the ignition key and the Essex V6 bursts into life and quickly settles into a gentle burble. On the move there's ample performance, the power delivery is smooth throughout the rev range and there are no ominous noises emanating from the engine, gearbox or back axle confirming what a very special Capri this really is. Finding another 3.0 S Capri like this won't be easy. This one ticks all the right boxes, condition, mileage, low ownership, history and is sold with a new MOT.Capris are becoming very collectable, particularly the 3 litre cars, and you would have to go a long way to find a better one than this.
