With the benefit of hindsight it's easy to be a bit superior about the Capri, the model Ford billed as 'the car you always promised yourself'. Countless gibes about fluffy dice, Carlos Fandango body kits and references to the Capri being something of a Basildon Bullet have been levelled at the pretty coupe over the years but history is coming round to Capri logic.
As a serious and successful attempt to combine the disciplines of sports car and family transport, the Capri deserves credit. No fewer than 1,886,648 rolled down various production lines during its entire eighteen-year lifespan but for the purposes of this guide we'll limit ourselves to the quad headlamped Mk III cars built in Cologne between 1978 and 1987. Well, most of them.
Every car nut owes it to themselves to own a Capri at some point in their life. A clean 2.8-litre model offers outrageous fun per pound. Besides, if somebody sneers, just assume they've never heard of post-modernism. And then cover them in a fine blue mist of Duckams Hypergrade.
Borrowing £7,500 on a Hire Purchase agreement over 48 months, a representative APR of 18.5% and a deposit of £0.00,
the amount repayable would be £216.89 a month, with a total cost of credit of £2,910.72 and a total amount
payable of £10,410.72.
