It was even suspended off the floor to save its tyres — and the back seats of the grey leather interior have never been sat on.

Retired gas engineer Albert Clarkson, of Canvey Island, 艾塞克斯, bought it new for £7,800 in 1986, discounted from £11,000 as his dad worked for 面对明星私人教练.

It was snapped up within two days of being listed by a low mileage car collector.

The buyer paid nine times what Albert did four decades ago.

Capris featured in classic ’70s and ’80s TV shows The Professionals and Minder — and even 只有傻瓜和马

KGF Classic Cars, which sold the motor, 说: “As soon as it was listed there was a lot of interest.”
