1978 FORD CAPRI Mk II 2000
As with the original (1969-1974) Capri series 2000 (2 litre) and 3000 (3 litre) versions topped the new Capri II range. The 2000 models now used an in-line four cylinder "Pinto" engine in place of the original V4 unit. A number of trim levels were available on both the 2 litre and 3 litre models including "S" and Ghia versions.
The Capri 2000 and 3000 used the same new body shell as the rest of the revised range. This new shell incorporated the hatchback boot, square headlights and larger tail-lamp clusters which modernised the original lines. The Capri was now a firmly established best seller and sales remained strong enough to update the Capri again in 1978 with the arrival of the Capri III.
Offered here is a rare, one owner from new example of a 1978 Ford Capri MK II 2.0 GL. The car is totally original and showing only 21,655 miles and drives as you would expect with such a low mileage specimen. Everything is said to work and the car is described as being in great running order. The vendor stresses that this is a fine and very rare, unmolested example of a MkII Capri, which would seem to be the rarest of all, with only 8 of this particular derivative left on the road according to www.howmanyleft.co.uk.
This Capri was recently rescued from dry storage after not being on the road for over 20 years, has now been recommissioned and is running perfectly. Recent works include new water pump, Cam belt and oil service, an MOT until November 18th 2015 and is now ready to be cherished and enjoyed once again.
So now you can have the car you always promised yourself.
