When launched, the Ford Capri was revolutionary. It was a car that set the European market alight, allowing even a buyer on a modest budget an intoxicating whiff of the exotic whilst keeping running costs ataffordable levels. That status eroded over time, and the Capri sat in the classic car doldrums for many years, its true worth unrecognized. That situation has thankfully changed, and Capri values are rising rapidly, so care has to be taken to make sure you end up with the best one possible for your money. This guide takes the potential purchaser through a short initial examination to weed out the obviously defective followed by a more comprehensive step by step look at the body and mechanical parts, where the clear, jargon-free text accompanied by over 100 photographs sheds light on even the darkest corners of the Capri’s construction. A unique points marking system ensures that nothing is overlooked, and an accurate final picture of the car’s condition can be viewed in relation to the asking price.

About the author (2009)

Mark Paxton has owned, repaired and restored classic vehicles for more than 25 years and written extensively about the process in both car and motorcycle  magazines, and several books. A long time admirer of classic Vespas, as much for their intelligent engineering as their undoubted style, he has managed to satisfy his addiction to the aroma of burnt two stroke oil through the ownership of several of Piaggio's finest, which have been ridden on a daily basis as well as on extended European tours. Mark's other books include: How to Restore Classic Smallframe Vespa Scooters, How to Restore Volkswagen Buses, and Essential Buyer's Guides for Vespa 2-strokes, Minis, Ford Capris and Citroen 2CVs, all published with Veloce.
