Ford Capri

As far as classic Ford cars go, history has been kind to the American company. There have been countless icons over the years that have secured their place as household names, and the Capri is one of them. A mid sized coupe, it looked good and drove well too, so it’s easy to see why many people wanted one. Nowadays there are loads available for cheap, so why not follow through on a promise made to yourself years ago?

Although the Capri name was used on a 1961 Consul, the first proper one wasn’t released until 1969. Quite an affordable sporty coupe, it was in production until 1986 by which time it had become quite the legend. Around 1.8 million were made, so clearly it did something right. A plethora of special edition versions were also released, including the 280, Brooklands, Laser and Turbo Technics, which featured some beefy levels of performance.

In terms of design, the Ford is wonderful to behold and has a classic look that’s akin to famous muscle cars of the time. Later models in particular were very sporty, but the model was always practical overall. The interior is wonderfully sparse, in that there’s no technology to get in the way- just some seats, a steering wheel and a gear stick, although some excellent retro style features are also present. A decent amount of cabin space makes it comfortable, and the boots were also pretty welcoming too.

Out on the road is where the Capri was happiest and it loved to eat up the miles. Some bulky engines including V6s and V8s were all part of the make up, so it didn’t really hang around. But lower end ones were very forgiving and frugal with some smaller V4s. Ideal for enthusiasts in particular, the sporty versions handle quite nicely and hold the road firmly, although you’d have to be awake for most of the time.

Obviously there are some models of the Ford that are seen as collectors items, but generally there are loads of bargains to be had in the world of used cars for sale. Motors.co.uk lists thousands of quality autos, so the chances of finding a second hand Ford Capri here are very good indeed. Impressive price reductions and a great approach to quality means anything you’ll find will be more than decent.

The main point is that the Ford Capri is an iconic car that was excellent back in the day and is still very much a good option now because it’s seen as a bit of a collector’s item. Some muscular designs and an excellent level of performance made high end versions magnificent, but entry level ones are also worth a look if you want something uber cheap and very cheerful.
