The Project

This 1985 Ford Capri MK3 2.8 Injection arrived at our Carrosserie workshop in March 2022 for full body and paintwork restoration.

Initially, the car was taken back to it’s original bare metal. At this stage our fabrication team rectified numerous corrosion issues, before it was then passed on to our paintwork team for the body to be fully prepped and sprayed ready for its final original two tone blue and silver paint.

12th October 2022: Bodywork/Doors fully prepped/sprayed ready for original two tone blue and silver paint.

27th October 2022: Body and doors have been painted in the original two tone blue and silver and is currently being polished.

10th November 2022: Owner has viewed the car for the first time as it was sent straight to Carrosserie after purchase and he is very happy with the work so far.

19th January 2023: Paintwork completed and stickers have been applied. Works are 90% complete with just a few minor things to finish before the owner can collect.

The Capri was marketed as ‘the car you always promised yourself’, but as the 1970s progressed, it became softer and less desirable. But as the Capri’s character arc continued to move, it was given one final hurrah – the Cologne V6-powered 2.8 Injection.

Neil who owns the company straight away gave me one of the best buying experiences I have ever had. He was nice to speak with giving me confidence in buying from him from the outset. This continued throughout the buying process with updates on the process of finance that he organised. Because of my working schedule being so hectic and having to juggle many parental duties. We were unable to get over to pick up the car in the week. Despite the company being closed on weekends, Neil went out of his way to meet me on a Saturday afternoon and even showed me around his amazing company. It was so clear to me that this is someone who is genuine, kind and cares about his company and customers in equal amounts. A truly rare thing in this day in age. I wouldn't hesitate to use his company myself in the future and would recommend him to friends and family in a heartbeat.

The brief was to bring my Austin Healey up to showroom standard to prepare it for sale. There were some problems along the way but were satisfactorily sorted out by the owner Neil who is a true gent. The workmanship was of the highest standard and never in doubt. My purchaser was very impressed with the quality of paintwork and overall presentation.
