| Description

This Capri was purchased new from Ford agents M&M Services in Eastriggs, South West Scotland, by David Mulholland who’d originally attempted to order a Capri from a Ford dealer in Dumfries. Unhappy with their response he found that M&M had one in their showroom, bought it, and requested the number plate XSW 24W because he was then a truck driver with the CB handle ‘24V’.

He used the car for five years and it had two further keepers before being purchased in 1996 by the current owner, Cumbriabased Malcolm Rolland, for £700 without an MOT. It had covered 74,000 miles. He used it for four years, then embarked on an epic nine-year restoration. The result, after over 3600 hours in the garage, is one of the best Capris in the UK.

Interestingly different but fix the door!

This edition of the ever popular Capri III is worth a close second look as all the detail is there if subtly masked by the heavy colours of the bronze and black finish. Look carefully and the feature black 'S' decal is there on the lower sides of the model. Corgi have captured the lines and proportions of the full size Capri very well and the exterior detailing of bumpers, spoiler, lights and mirrors is excellent whilst the interior is epitomised by the typical Ford steering wheel design of the 1990s. If you can ignore the flattened waistline detail in the casting of the nearside door, the model makes an interesting and worthwhile addition to the fast Ford collection.
