VANGUARDS 1/43 FORD CAPRI Mk3 3.0S - 1978 BRITISH SALOON CAR CHAMPIONSHIP WINNER


From 1975, the 3-litre Capri dominated the BSCC and Gordon Spice racked up 26 victories, winning the class every year from 1975 to 1980. In 1978, driving the 220bhp 3.0S modelled, he took 6 wins out of 12 races. Ford gained fantastic publicity from the Capri's success, so when the Mh3 was announced in March 1978, free 'update kits' were issued to the series' leading protagonists, which gave their existing Mk2 Capri's the up-to-date look and performance. The car modelled started life as a Mk2. Features include detailed interior, working suspension and authentic livery. Shop here
