Ford Consul Capri GT (1964)
The Ford Consul Capri was launched in 1961 and was the first European market Ford to bear the Capri name. The Ford Consul Capri is a two-door coupe version of the Classic Consul and was available from 1961 until 1964. In February 1963, the GT version was announced. The new GT engine, developed by Cosworth, featured a raised compression ratio 9:1, a modified head with larger exhaust valves, an aluminium inlet manifold, a four branch exhaust and most noticeably a twin choke Weber carburettor - this being the first use of this make on a British production car, the rarest of all the British Fords with only 39 GT's registered. Overall, the car was very expensive to produce and in the latter part of its production was running alongside the very popular Ford Cortina. Only 2,002 GT models were built and just 1,007 cars were sold in 1964, the last year of production, 412 of them being GT's.
Built in the last year of production, this car was first registered on the 7th February, 1964. This stunning Ford has benefitted from being fully restored and kept in a heated facility, never seeing rain or moist weather in 25 years, looks stunning with its two tone paintwork and leather interior which is described as being as new and comes with a spare carpet set.
