SUMMARY

A rare 'Injection Special' that has been comprehensively restored.

DESCRIPTION

  • An absolutely superb example of the penultimate Capri prior to the run-out 280 Brooklands
  • Introduced in 1984, the Injection Special featured 7-spoke RS alloys, colour-coded grille/headlamp surrounds, limited-slip differential, uprated suspension and model-specific leather/cloth Recaros 
  • 2.8-litre, fuel-injected, Cologne V6 engine producing 160bhp mated to 5-speed manual gearbox
  • Full nut and bolt restoration completed just two years ago, the car has barely done 1,000 miles since
  • Superbly presented in Ford Midnight Blue with the original Recaro grey and black half-leather interior
  • Take a look at the photographs to see just how much work has gone into this Capri. Look at that underside!
  • With 280 Brooklands Capris now so expensive, the 2.8 Injection Special can't be far behind making this immaculate example appear very sensibly guided
