Vehicle History

Remarks

The Capri 280 was the final limited edition run of the legendary Ford Coupé which had first appeared back in 1969. Ford originally intended to make 500 turbo-charged vehicles (by Turbo-Technics) complete with gold alloy wheels but a change of production planning meant a name change to Capri 280. These cars featured a limited-slip differential, a full leather Recaro interior, and 15-inch, seven-spoke alloy wheels to complement the 2.8 injected V6 engine. Just 1,038 were ever made and all were finished in Brooklands Green Metallic, resulting in them, inevitably becoming known as 'Brooklands Capris'.

D359 Wuf is accompanied by a folder containing: 52 pages of information, 7 Owner's Guides, a Ford service plan, 4 photos of the car, an Owner's Club card. the V5C Registration Document, and 22 MoT Certificates (with dates & mileages)
