1973 Broadspeed Capri. £POA

What a beast this thing is and look at those arches! It defines the term “hairy-chested”. If I had the money this would go in my garage straight away. Built originally to compete in European Touring car racing. Click through to the website of the dealer, JD Classics, to have a look at the high resolution photos of this beast, would make a great screen saver.  Plus there are a couple of videos of the car in action. Link

This car was built by Broadspeed in 1973 for Ford Motor Co. Ltd. to Ford Cologne specification for Claude Borgourne to drive in the Kent-Castrol Belgium Touring Championships which it won convincingly, powered then by a 3 litre Westlake V6 engine. It was returned to England after the sister car of Dave Matthews was totally destroyed at the 1973 Silverstone Grand Prix Meeting. It was driven by Andy Rouse at the Tourist Trophy Meeting and then sold to Bo Emanuelson who won the Swedish Championship in 1974. In 1975 it was returned to Ford Cologne and rebuilt to the latest specification including Ford-Cosworth 24 valve V6 engine developing 460 HP at 8,750 RPM. Bo Emanuelson won many races in Sweden and Europe being faster than Jochen Mass at the Nurburgring. The car has been completely rebuilt by JD Classics and is race ready having been raced by ourselves the last 2 years. Comes with spares including spare engine which is currently being rebuilt for next season. A very rare opportunity to purchase a Works Ford Competition Cologne Capri.

The advert states this is 95% complete, certainly the body looks really tidy and is lovely old skool colour. You see plenty of these V8 conversions where old Rover V8s have been used and more expensive ones with Hemis,…..but this looks like a good compromise. The cheaper Lexus V8 has been used but it should be reliable and will give you all the power you should need with 300bhp. Link
