Restoration Show at NEC Birmingham March 31st - April 2nd
Ford race prepared GXL one of only 3 for racing - only on the
Capri Mk1 Register
Working on a GXL body as well as other interesting Capri's to
Hall 7 stand no 7-205
The Capri I won in a raffle. Pre
facelift 1600XL 11 previous owners .
The Capri had been used in a promotion around the country to promote men's Old Spice products
and used the slogan Be a Man Man.
There were three Capri's used in the promotion
this was the only Mk1 Capri used. The cars
travelled around the UK and Europe, I am told that the Mk1 was the only one not to break down.
The car had travelled
around the country, often girls were photographed sitting on the bonnet or/and on the roof (see U Tube) so a few dents and dings were added en route.
It is in a bit of a sorry state now. We are looking at getting it restored or
maybe sell it on for restoration.
