    Hello everybody.
    Just got myself a 1969 MK1 XL 1600 in Fern green just like the one I had in 1974.
    Maybe some here know the car DVX782G
    Ultra low mileage 63,000 with just 3 owners from new. First 2 owners had the car for 49 years. Original build sheet and receipt. Car buyer was a Dagenham employee who purchased the car under the company discount scheme. Cost £504, zero shillings and 4d . Folders of history, insurance documents, tax discs and old mot certificates.
    It's like a mobile museum. Photos shortly.

    That's a classic! Very presentable. "Mobile museum" is a great way to go, no better place to show it than the road.

    Thanks everyone.
    Just found a 1969 newspaper in the boot front page the Apollo 11 moon landing July 1969. Also the original Hire Purchase agreement showing £100 deposit and 24 monthly payments of £19 pounds and 10 shillings.
    And Insurance Certificates for £14 and 7 shillings a year fully comp.

    I took this Capri as a part exchange for my 1975 Granada Ghia Coupe. Capri owner number 3 only had the car for 5 months and didn't like it because it was ' to slow '.
    Maybe it's nostalgia but I love the Capri. AND it has made my garage so much bigger!
