1982 Ford Capri Calypso
This is a unique opportunity to own a rare beautifully maintained original one owner from new special edition Capri Calypso. CCCR as sales agents have been asked by the owner to market this 1982 Ford Capri that comes with a huge fully documented and complete history file which is a credit to its original owner. All works under taken to the vehicle have been done to the highest of standards which really shine through when you spend time with the vehicle. Initially what strikes you is how correct everything feels, from panel gaps, quality of plastic trim to the original stickers under the bonnet nothing is out of place or looking worn/faded or restored! The seats support you as they did from new, the plastics and vinyls' are fade free suggesting the car was always garaged even the door check straps operate without any sign of wear when operating the door and even the door lock mechanism still have the original bright gold chromate finish. The car starts easy using the period manual choke and when pulling away there is no judder or hesitation. The gearbox is slick from cold never missing a change and the car makes brisk driving fun especially as you peer down the long sculptured bonnet. There is no wind noise or annoying interior squeaks rattles or knocks which so many from this era suffer and every time you glance down at the dash to observe the array of dials your reminded that Ford designed this car from the outset as a sporting coupe. The car grips the road faultlessly on its extra wide rims with predictable handling encouraging you to hold the car in gear for longer and when braking you are instilled with confidence reminding you that this really was one of Fords finest overall packages and way more interesting than the boring euro financed boxes that clutter our roads and driveways today. The car has a fresh MOT and the paintwork is really first class with CD photographic file of previous works undertaken by a high end body shop near the previous owners home. The engine bay looks totally original which is far more interesting than one which clearly shows signs of a over enthusiastic owner and his tooth brush! You may note from the inner door photographs the white filler grommets that indicate the car received the Ziebart style wax injection treatment many years ago when it was popular on new vehicles which will no doubt be one reason why its in such good condition today. For classic reliable usable motoring or a show car for high days and holidays this has everything.
