    Hi,

    Could anybody kindly provide any information (short or detailed) about my white Ford Capri 3.0s, registration number- DLB359T. It would be great to get in contact with previous keepers of the car or like I previously stated, any information/photos what so ever of a car I absolutely adore!

    This car didn’t come with much service history when I purchased it, so does anyone know what different options and avenues I could go down to gather more information? DVLA have changed their policy due to the data protection act. You can no longer obtain from DVLA previous keepers of a car that you own. Any help please?

    First of all, welcome, did you buy it off DM Classic Vehicle Spares, hopefully it was owned previously by a CP member that can help you with more of its history.

    Welcome aboard Lewis ;)

    Looking at the MOT history, it seems to have been off the road quite a bit over the years.

    Post up loads of pictures of it, we love pictures on here :)

    Exterior, interior & especially under the bonnet, all might help jog peoples memories of the car

    Welcome Lewis

    Putting your registration number into google brings up a few photos of the car, there’s quite a few on page 66 of the excellent “Capri Appreciation Society” section of Flickr. The photo taker(s) may be a good starting point to finding more of the cars history too

    Hello to you all,

    First of all thank you for all of your replies and warm welcome messages! It is great to chat with fellow Capri enthusiasts like myself. Sadly I haven't been able to do much with my Capri (due to the national pandemic situation etc) but I did manage to send it into Ric Wood Motorsport last summer for a full engine rebuild and a slight subtle tune up;) I shall be uploading some photos of my 3.0s to share with you all!
