1985 Ford Capri 2.8 Injection. Here at Beyer Peacock Classics we love our Capri's and have to say that we have not had one in stock for sometime now! So we are delighted to offer this very rare 1984 Capri 2.8 injection automatic. Capri 2.8 injection automatic's were not available from the Ford factory in Germany, they came has 5 speed maunal's in there later form.
And so to our Capri injection.
Register in March 1985, and finished in Nimbus Grey with Monza Recaro interior, and has covered a genuine 50567 miles from new! Upgraded 4 pot front brake calipers and larger rear brake shoes. B890 JAO was supplied new to Ford Main Dealer "Ford's Of Keswick" this was to be the manager's car and on it's arrival it was sent to Somar Transtec to be converted from manual to automatic at the request of Keswick's manager. Somar were one of only Two companies licensed by Ford Motor Company to carry out the conversion in the UK. The cost of this was £1050.00 plus VAT. This Capri was one of very few fitted with the later Four auto box as fitted to the new MK3 Granada instead of the more common C3 3 speed auto box fitted to earlier Capri V6's. It was owned by Keswick's Manager until it was sold to it's second owner in 1989. Mr Lain only owned it until 1990 when it went to a second Ford dealership "Jennings Of Stockport" they sold it to a Mr Christoher Vaughan in July 1992, who owned the Capri until selling it on to a DR Michael Orion in November 1993. Doctor Orion owned the Capri until selling it in June 2001 to a Mr Julian Streets.
When Mr Street purchased B890 JAO it had only covered 42541 miles from new and between 2001 and 2014 he covered a mere 7138 miles in it. He then took it off the road and kept it safely locked in his garage. It has old MOT's going back to 1989, it's original hand books, old V5's & owner history. Also in the history file are recent bills and receipts for recommissioning work carrying out for several hundreds of pounds. This Capri drive's like new and retains it's original Ford Front wings, infact this is more than likely one of the best original Capri 2.8 injection's left on the road today. The engine is very quiet and the auto box is silky smooth and acceleration is similar to that of it's manual counterpart! Many Capris' we get offered just don't reach our standard but this example certainly does! The photos do not do it justice and we highly recommend to come and view this Capri if you are in the market for one! It is MOT'd until 12/11/2021 and is ready to take out and enjoy! To arrange a viewing and test drive please call 07806 814683 you won't be disappointed in this superb Capri injection.
