A Costly Capri

‘Refinished’ 1987 Ford Capri 280 Brooklands for sale for a sum that will wow; it’s affectionately known as ‘Oscar’

 

The car of choice of boy racers, the Ford Capri was dubbed ‘The Pratmobile’ by Rodney after Del Boy bought one in the BBC series Only Fools and Horses. Those that kept such vehicles, unlike the majority who sent them to be scrapped, are now having the last laugh as their prices are rocketing and an example of such comes in the form of a 1987 Capri 280 Brooklands that is to be auctioned in July.

 

The fastback coupé to be offered is described by Silverstone Auctions as “the best Capri Brooklands we’ve ever seen” and is affectionately known as ‘Oscar’. It has been “refinished” – not “restored” – at great expense and has just 14,680 miles on the clock.

 

The car will be sold with an estimate of £35,000 to £45,000 ($44,800 to $57,600, €40,100 to €51,500 or درهم164,700 to درهم211,700) at Silverstone Auctions’ 29th to 30th July sale.

  1. Overpriced! Ridiculous! And Rod likes it! That puts me off and makes me use exclamation marks! One only though per sentence! One only!

  2. Back when the Capri was winning the European Touring car Challenge, I had a race replica built for for the road: 3.1 Neil Brown engine, revised suspension etc. It was fun, handled great, very stable in the wet, not too understeery and went like a rocket. After six 911’s [last one a 73 Carrera RS] was a pleasure to be able to pick up a small antique table from my mother’s house and stow it in the rear…
    On a rainy day I don’t think any of the Porsches could have kept up with it.
