WOW the Rare one. Second owner, Garaged and covered most of its life, Factory Show room Condition….

1985 saw an increase in sales to 407 (150 H/B, 257 conv) units for the Capri. ASC took a greater step forward as it began to offer a supersport suspension kit containing stiffer springs that lowered that car and revalved struts. The interior was treated with real Recaro seats, leather wrapped steering wheel, and a 140-mph speedometer. A new front airdam, side body ground effects, and a rear valance filled out the exterior changes. Ford, by specifying a special DSO code for all ASC destined cars (D32), shipped these cars from the factory with the Motorsport B303 camshaft and Thunderbird Turbo Coupe tie-rod ends. This was to insure a factory warranty covered these parts
Today the Fox bodied Capri is rare. The ASC/McLaren cars more so. They offer perhaps the best example of early Fox body performance and showcase the role that aerodynamics would have in automotive performance (and appearance) as the 80’s evolved.
