1970 Ford Capri 3000GT

Description

The team at Hilton & Moss are delighted to be handling the sale of this very charming 1970 Ford Capri 3000 GT.

This exact car is a particularly special example as it appeared on the Channel 4 TV show ‘Jamie and Jimmy’s Friday Night Feast' where it was driven to RAF wittering by the two hosts. The car itself belongs to none other than Jamie Oliver MBE himself and is for sale exclusively with Hilton & Moss directly from Jamies private collection.

The very early Capri models were fitted with smaller displacement 2.0 litre and below powerplants but in September 1969 the 3000 GT was released. Fitted with a 3.0 litre Essex Ford V6 the 3000 GT was the fastest Capri to date with a healthy 138BHP. A four speed synchro box is mated to the V6 engine providing a smooth gear change and disc brakes were fitted to the front of the 3000GT for increased stopping power. The Ford Capri was and still is an incredibly popular motor car with just under 1.9 million vehicles sold throughout the cars 18-year production run between 1968 and 1986.

The Capri was also a formidable motorsport contender with great success in the Touring Car Championships throughout the years.

This particular Capri is presented in very good condition and after receiving a sympathetic restoration prior to the previous keeper acquiring the vehicle. At this time the car was fully resprayed from its original colour Amber Gold Metallic to Ermine White. The car does show minor age-related defects as expected on a 1970 vehicle.

The car drives superbly and has been checked over and tweaked by our experienced in-house technicians. This is a fabulous opportunity to own a beautiful early 3000GT with recorded celebrity ownership that looks and drives great. Please speak to our team about any further questions, the car can be viewed on a ramp for a detailed inspection. Price on application. We offer both finance and part exchange.
