1974 Ford Capri XL



1974 Ford Capri XL

The vendor has kindly supplied us the following information:

This car was a special order by its first owner Mr Purnell. He requested that it be built with heavy duty suspension consequently this is what he received. It has 3 litre strut tops which show the chassis number as well as a sump guard and strengthened suspension. These items are not normally found on a 1.6. The chassis number shows it was built in November 1973 at the same time as the RS3100's were being manufactured. I have also found out that many of the RS's have lower chassis numbers than this XL which means this XL was virtually one of the last MK 1's produced. In fact it was not registered until February 1974 by which time the Mk2 had been announced. There is a full detail of the bill of sale, service and MOT (from 1990) and a list of the original owners contained in a very comprehensive history file.

On site now for viewing.

We are open 7 days a week here at Thornton Le Dale for pre-sale viewing, although a quick phone call prior to travelling is advised.
