‘The car you’ve always promised yourself’. That was the slogan with with the Ford Capri was advertised. One of the last Capris ever made is going under the hammer at Barons’ British Heritage, Classic and Sports Cars sale at Sandown Park on Tuesday 5th June. So isn’t it about time you fulfilled that promise to yourself?

The 280 Brooklands was a special edition Ford Capri, introduced in 1986 to end the Capri’s time on a high. 1038 were built in total, and the 1987 car on offer at Barons is number 75 from the final 100 of that production run.

Finished in the original Brooklands metallic green with red and white pin striping, it is in excellent condition inside and out. Gearbox, engine and rear axle are still the originals, and the vendor has kept the car garaged for the last 22 years, driving it regularly but only in good weather.

This stylish, powerful car has covered just 72,000 miles in 31 years and, at a guide price of £22,000 – £29,000, is a fantastic opportunity to acquire a highly collectable example of one of Britain’s most cherished classics.
