This is Allan J’s 1972 Ford Capri 1600GT XLR Special - one of a limited production run to commemorate the Mark 1 prior to its facelift.  He was inspired to buy this one in 1995 having owned an identical model in the 1970's.  Following a restoration it featured in a number of car shows until 2002 when he had to sell it as he was relocating overseas.  Once home again he managed to track it down again in 2011 and managed to buy it back, this time for keeps.  After another extensive restoration it has once again participated in many indoor and outdoor car shows around Scotland.
