Capri 50th Anniversary Rally

A gathering to celebrate 50 years of the Ford Capri
10AM - 4PM

The Capri Mk1 Register is holding a gathering to celebrate 50 years of the Ford Capri at the British Motor Museum.

Owners of this iconic Ford model are welcome to bring it along to mark this special milestone as part of the Old Ford Rally. 200 Capri's are expected to be here where the owners can meet each other and share their experiences.

Author Steve Saxty will be giving two separate talks during the day. Drawing information from his award-winning first book and his new “Capri 50” book he will be presenting in Room 3 in the Museum:

11.30 am - Capri Design Story: Never-seen Prototypes & Design Evolution
You’ll be taken through the design of each Capri, the design sketches, models and prototypes. Capris that might-have-been and the untold inside stories using never-seen images from Ford’s secret archives.

2.30 pm - The Capris You Always Promised Yourself: The Most Collectable and Desirable Top Ten
A guided presentational tour of the ultimate top ten collectable Capris, plus the GBX prototype brought back to life in clay and the cancelled 2003 Capri. Hear what makes them so special and see why they are so significant to the Capri story.
