This is now SOLD. Search for similar items.


1983 Ford Capri 2.8 built for Roger Williams to run in the Willhire 24 hour race .

This is the BT sponsored car that featured on the advertising for the early 1980s Willhire .

It has a full and continuous history since it ran in the Willhire and is in excellent condition.

Currently it is used for track days and so has a TVR 450 engine and tremec t5 fitted . It is a fantastic Spa or Nurburgring toy which gets plenty of attention and with c 300 real bhp is no slouch.

Since the 1980s it has been moved to 15 inch wheels to allow Ford sourced discs to be used for ease .

The car doesn't have the original sticker set but does retain some of the peripheral stickers and has a full box of correspondence with Ford and race sheets regarding the Willhire.

It's basic spec is :

modified tvr 450 engine with c300 bhp 

large radiator and twin Bentley Arnage fan system

Sierra cosworth/Ford Granada discs all round 

Tremec t5 ( modified with straight cut 5 th gear and uprated)

quafe rear axle 

single ford

motorsport rear leafs

Large endurance fuel cell 

full cage , fire suppression, internal brake and fuel piping etc 

It's a wonderful car which as is makes for trackdays where you stand out from the Porsches .

it would be great to see it taken to group 1 and raced in period livery too given it's history  . Must make a good Goodwood car


nb the Capri is also regisrered and road legal with V5
