1975 Ford Capri 2.0 S 'John Player Special'



1975 Ford Capri 2.0 S 'John Player Special'

Owned by the vendor since 1986 after purchasing the car from a family member.

Supplied with an interesting history folder including a letter from Ford Motor Company dated July 1987.

This letter states that the Capri 'S' was introduced in May 1975 and available in two colours. Black or White. With a production run of 1750 units.

It continues. 'It is important to note that we named this model as an S, however, as the Black with Gold stripe version resembled the tobacco company sponsored racing cars, dealers and owners simply nick named them John Player Special model's'

This special edition model proved so popular that Ford made the Capri S a standard production vehicle in September 1975.

We have a copy of a sales brochure of the time together with the original 'Operation & Care' booklet and 'Ford Sure' manual.

On site now for viewing.
