Description

motodrome are very pleased to offer for sale this left hand drive Capri 2600 V6 RS2600 evocation. .

In the early 1970s, Ford Germany produced the homologation special RS2600, to take on the might of BMW in Group 2 of the European Touring Car Championship. All were LHD, and never officially sold in the UK. Today a genuine RS2600 is like hens teeth, and commensurately expensive.

This 1973 mark one (facelift) Capri 2600 V6 has been restored to evoke the RS, and is of course left hand drive. Finished in vibrant Daytona Yellow with black bonnet and interior, it features quad front lights, front quarter bumpers, and a genuine RS ducktail spoiler as fitted to the later RS2600 and the RS3100.

Mechanically its equipped with the Cologne 2. 6 V6 in standard tune, 2. 8 injection 5-speed gearbox, and 2. 8 injection suspension, and I can report (as an ex-owner of a genuine RS3100 back when they were peanuts to buy) that it handles really well, without the choppy ride quality.

Also fitted with Rostyle wheels with near-new Firestone tyres all round.

Odometer reading 83000 miles

Imported into the UK from the USA in 2018 and registered here, we have plenty of photographs of its restoration using a decent US bodyshell as a starting point, and its done around 500 miles since build.

The interior has been completely refurbished, with new seat covers in black vinyl with cloth inserts, black leather (with yellow stitching) to the dashtop and cubby box, new black headlining, new doorcards and carpets, and brushed aluminium 6-dial dash.

Being recognised as a historic vehicle, road tax is free and, whilst its MOT exempt, I?m pleased to report it has a current MOT to June 2024, although we're quite happy to provide a fresh 12M MOT if sold in the UK.

We also have the original bootlid (in Daytona Yellow) available, should you wish to return it to a more standard look.

Overall, a fine example of a mark 1 (facelift) Capri

On our own website, youll find our usual two videos: a walkaround appraisal, and driving impressions, which form part of the description.
