SCV387G - 1600L

Keith, from the Hastings area, has owned his fern green early 1600L car since 2003. He's owned capris for ten years having had a Mk1 in the past and more recently three Mk3s.  When he saw his present car though he knew he'd be buying it.  Manufactured in March 1969, the car has covered a relatively low 75,000 miles in the 37 years since rolling off the Halewood production line.  With a black interior, it has the L spec bench seat in the rear but has gained a GT centre console somewhere over the years.  For practicality - Keith has a young son - the car has rear seat belts utilising the fixing points originally installed in production by Fords but so rarely used.
