Allmän beskrivning : Equipment

Looking every bit the 80s icon this rare 280 ‘Brooklands’ presents in stunning unmodified condition. The beautiful Brooklands Green paintwork maintains an excellent depth of shine, a uniform green/blue hue, and a sharp metallic flake with no signs of corrosion in any of the common weak spots. She’s arrow-straight along both sides and the panel gaps are spot-on. Having clearly been garaged all the plastic trims and rubber seals around the car remain in fine fettle with no perishing or damage to report. The lights are crystal-clear and free from moisture ingress, and the pinstripes are perfect. The final iteration of the iconic Ford Capri and a magnificent example at that.



A real treat for the enthusiast, the 280’s interior boasts Recaro sports seats in full Raven leather with subtle red piping. The upholstery presents to an excellent standard throughout with only a small amount of expected surface wear to the deep outer bolsters. The leather has never been re-trimmed or re-connolised and so remains in 100% original condition with just the right level of patina in our opinion. The complementing vinyl door cards and leather steering wheel are immaculate, and in the footwells the carpets are pristine and complete with a set of spotless tailored overmats. The headlining is also perfect, and there are no cracks or signs of sun damage across the dash, the only negatives to report here being a few small marks on the ash tray lid. At the rear of the car the boot carpet is free from stains and the original parcel shelf is still present and without any aftermarket speakers or holes.


As with the rest of the car, the engine bay is remarkably clean and tidy, not overly dressed but in excellent original condition with no rust, damage, or signs of previous poor repair. Barely run-in with only 20k miles on the clock, the 2.8-litre V6 fires into life first turn of the key, idles smoothly up to temperature, and pulls strongly through the gears. Some recent mechanical work includes a major service, new exhaust, clutch, auxiliary drive belts, and a new fuel tank with a new sender unit and fuel pump.


Being a 280 this one sits on special 15-inch alloy wheels, all in perfect unmarked condition. They are shod in a newly fitted set of premium Goodyear tyres (including the spare) with next to no wear. The brakes have also been checked and remain in fine operational condition having recently been treated to new pads and discs at the front and new cylinders at the rear. 

History File

First registered in September 1987 and supplied new by Trimoco Ford in Dunstable this outstanding example has now driven only 20k miles in the hands of just 4 registered keepers. The previous owner had the car for over 29 years although it was rarely driven to preserve both its low mileage and amazing condition. Since purchasing the Capri in 2021 the current owner – a very good client of ours with a fantastic collection of his own – has had the car fully recommissioned ready for its next adventure. In addition to a full service, it benefits from 5 new tyres, all new brakes, a new exhaust, fuel tank, sender unit, fuel pump, and a new clutch. The original Trimoco document wallet is still present along with the owner’s manuals and dealer-stamped service booklet. The original ‘E280’ registration number is also retained. A limited amount of additional paperwork is with the car but the condition really speaks for itself.

om Ford
Ford, som grundades 1902, har utan tvekan förändrat historien om bilvärlden mer än någon annan biltillverkare genom att införa de första folkbilen Modell T 1908. De hade producerat mer än 15 miljoner bilar i slutet av produktionen 1927, genom vilket T hade blivit föråldrade.

Ford lanserade den första lågpris V8-motor driven bil 1932. 1932 V8 var en omedelbar hit med överlägsen hantering och prestanda för många betydligt mer expansiva bilar av dagen. Inte undra på 32 V8 Ford har blivit en sådan favorit bland heta rodders runt om i världen med 32 Deuce Coupe som sin ikon.

Under kriget Ford helt stänga civil bilproduktionen att ägna alla sina resurser till de allierade krigsansträngningarna (1942-1945) De används för att bygga B-24 bombplan, flygmotorer, jeepar, M-4 stridsvagnar, militära lastbilar och Bren-gun bärare och mer än 30.000 super laddade Rolls Royce Merlin V-12 motorer till Mosquito och Lancaster bombplan samt P-51 Mustang fighters. Efter kriget Ford bilar i USA blev större och flashier tillsammans med sina konkurrenter. I 60: s Ford var tillbaka i förgrunden igen när man inför deras kommersiella hit Mustang 1964. Mustang var så populär tävlingen var tvungen att följa Fords exempel och ponycar fenomenet tog över USA. Under åren ponnyer växte några muskler tills oljekrisen döda äntligen dödat dem.

På sextiotalet rusade Ford i internationell motorsport scenen med en raseri. Efter misslyckade Ferrari övertagande, då Enzo Ferrari hade klippt affären av med Henry Ford II gör det senare absolut koka av vrede, vände Ford till Lola i Storbritannien för att producera en Ferrari slog långdistans racer efter. Samarbetet mellan Ford och Lola skapade den mäktiga Ford GT40 som absolut slog Ferrari i Le Mans 24 flera gånger.

I Europa införde Ford några av de mest episka race och rallybilar av 60-talet som bygger på ödmjuka familj sedaner; Cortina GT, Lotus Cortina, Escort Twin Cam, och Escort 1600RS med de ikoniska Cosworth BDA motorer.
