When launched, the Ford Capri was revolutionary. It was a car that set the European market alight, allowing even a buyer on a modest budget an intoxicating whiff of the exotic whilst keeping running costs ataffordable levels. That status eroded over time, and the Capri sat in the classic car doldrums for many years, its true worth unrecognized. That situation has thankfully changed, and Capri values are rising rapidly, so care has to be taken to make sure you end up with the best one possible for your money. This guide takes the potential purchaser through a short initial examination to weed out the obviously defective followed by a more comprehensive step by step look at the body and mechanical parts, where the clear, jargon-free text accompanied by over 100 photographs sheds light on even the darkest corners of the Capri’s construction. A unique points marking system ensures that nothing is overlooked, and an accurate final picture of the car’s condition can be viewed in relation to the asking price.

About the Author:

A dedicated petrolhead, Mark Paxton has been addicted to two wheels since first wobbling unaccompanied on to the road over 35 years ago. His entire working life has revolved around vehicles, initially in transport management, then through running his own garage, and latterly writing for classic car and motorcycle magazines. Mark’s books include: How to Restore Classic Smallframe Vespa Scooters, How to Restore Volkswagen Buses, and Essential Buyer’s Guides for Vespa 2-strokes, Minis, Ford Capris and Citroen 2CVs, all published with Veloce.

Review:

"... the clear, jargon-free text, accompanied by over 100 photographs, sheds light on even the darkest corners of the Capri's construction." – Ashbourne News Telegraph

"Well worth a tenner if you're inspecting the cars yourself, its authority and wisdom in inverse proportion to its small size." – Classic Cars

"Loads of information to help you avoid expensive mistakes." – Classics Monthly
