This some of you may remember is a Ford Capri from I think the late 60's or very early 70's I'm not actually sure Tongue Anyway here is a very short sequence of shots of this car.

Thank you all so much for the best wishes for my wife, here surgery has gone well, all done under an epidural, so on her return to the ward her first request was for a cup of coffee Smilehopefully she will be discharged in the next few days

Thank you all so much for all your C&C's very much appreciated

Thanks for taking the time to look

Hugh

They were never a favourite car of mine but you have made it very attractive here by being so selective! Version 1 is particularly good and makes the car appear iconic! Excellent images.

I reckon this is earlier than late Sixties.

The Capri that arrived around G registration was a lot more modern-looking than this: a Mark 2 Cortina dragged up as a 2+2. Various of my friends (and two brothers-in-law) had them. They ceertainly looked the part, with a long bonnet (giving plenty of access with most engines, as they started at 1300cc) and a stubby boot... While the 3-litre (later, the 2.8) had a turn of speed, the real performance Ford of the Sixties and Seventies was the hotted-up Escort, which was rallied extensively.

I'm still puzzling over exactly what this car is, and whether it's a standard UK model, or an American import. Comes of having grown up in the Sixties, and not having a driving licence until 1970, I suppose!

Hey now I do remember the Capri - just. Tongue Think our neighbours used to have one.
Didn't 'The Professionals' have one in the 1970's on TV? Smile

Three excellent shots of a model called, I believe, the Ford Classic.
Some neighbours of ours, when I were a lad, had one.
They date back to at least the original 'A' reg in 1963, possibly earlier.
I'm amazed this one's survived as they tended to be rot boxes!!
Great work, Hugh

Richard

Great shots Hugh - they only made these (and the very similar Ford Classic - one of which I owned at 17!) for a couple of years in the early sixties - my Classic was a 1961. The Classic was essentially the same but instead of having the coupe style rear window the rear window sloped backwards making it look like a large Ford Anglia. This Capri was a British car and this is definitely one of them. It was not terribly well known and the one most people remember is the 70's version such as the 3 litre mentioned by Mike Smith.
