eBay watch: 1960s Ford Consul Capri car


A very British take on Americana with this Ford Consul Capri, which looks stunning and is currently up for auction with a low price and no reserve.

It dates back to 1964, but has recently been restored after being garaged for 20 years. It's also got a long MOT and is tax exempt, which is always a bonus.

In terms of that restoration, according to the seller, the car was stripped and resprayed back in the early 90s, the front wings and one sill were replaced along with new front jacking points. After that, it was garaged, with recent work to fix any mechanical problems – see the listing for a breakdown of all the work undertaken. Additionally, both bumpers have been re-chromed as have the door handles, boot lock and all the roof gutter sections around the side windows.

The interior looks good too, again, this has had a full renovation job. More images on the listing and if you fancy it, the price right now is £199 – and with no reserve. Just think, you could be doing the country roads in this come summer – it's guaranteed to turn a few heads.
