HISTORY FILE
A car boasting just two owners from new, 64,577 miles and the most incredible history file. Built in November 1986 at the Cologne Plant in Germany, this 2.8 Injection Special was registered new on 25th February 1987 by Ford Main Dealer, Currie Motors London Ltd. Purchased new by a Mr Butler, the car became an instant ‘pride of joy’ affair and a detailed letter in the history file speaks of his family’s love for the car including trips in it to Austria and the South of France. Mr Butler goes on to recall that in 1989 the cars interior and wheels were stolen when the one and only time he forgot to lock the car in the garage. He was awoken in the early hours by the local constabulary to tell him of the missing items. The car was then taken to the supplying dealer, Currie Motors for repair work to be undertaken where Mr Butler learned that on the same night a C-registration Capri had also suffered at the hands of the thieves but had been written off by the insurance company due to being older and of higher mileage. A comprehensive invoice from Currie Motors dated October 1989 totals £4,247.29 in repairs and understandably there is a further Currie Motors invoice where Mr Butler ordered a Cobra Ultrasonic alarm! The car then became the family’s second car and was used only for holidays and weekends until eventually in 2005 the difficult decision to sell the Capri was made.

Mr O’Neill purchased the car in May 2005 and became the second and only other keeper who was fortunate enough to have a letter from the original owner giving him a potted history of the car since it was new. The colossal history file is simply amazing and consists of two huge folders with all paperwork in chronological order from new. All Ford Main Dealer and specialist service invoices have been kept dating back to the first service in December 1987 when the car was 10 months old.
