Powered by a 2.0 litre turbocharged engine, this totally original unmodified ‘cossie’ presents a wonderful opportunity with an estimate of £25,000 to £30,000.
“As the definitive everyman classic, fast Fords always have a great appeal at our sales,” ^ says Simon Langsdale, classic car specialist at Classic Car Auctions. “Fast Fords have an incredibly dedicated audience of enthusiasts. The appeal of cheap, usable speed is completely understandable and always makes them the cars to watch when they cross the auction block at our sales.”
One of only 80 cars built, the rare 1986 Ford Tickford Capri in the sale is estimated at £18,000 to £22,000. Smartly finished in Gloss Black with a Grey half-leather Recaro interior, the car has covered just 56,900 miles. The Tickford was fitted witha front mounted turbocharger, rear disc brakes, Bilstein dampers, and a limited slip differential, desirable extras include a stainless steel exhaust, an £800 option at the time.
Another classic Ford in the sale is a 1985 Escort 1.6L Cabriolet with only 2,964 miles. The Diamond White model is in time-warp condition presenting just as it would have when it rolled out of the factory in 1985. The car still sits on its original tyres, has its original cam belt and even retains its original factory quality control stickers still attached to the rear boot.
A second enticing Escort in the sale is a 1990 Escort RS Turbo Series 2 in remarkably original condition. Estimated at £12,000 to £15,000, the car has been meticulously maintained by the same man for over 30 years, the past 12 under his ownership. Finished in Solid White with a virtually unmarked Grey cloth Recaro interior, this 90’s classic is certain to attract attention at the sale.
Standing out amongst the many Capris in the sale is a 1983 Capri 2.8 Injection that has been restored to show-winning condition. Estimated at £13,000 to £16,000, the car has been through a full nut and bolt restoration courtesy of the current owner’s classic car restoration business. Finished in Black with a Grey cloth interior and with only 48,000 recorded miles, this Capri presents an excellent opportunity at the December Sale.
