A timewarp Ford Capri with just 585 miles on the clock has sold for a whopping £71,000.<br />
<br />
The 2.8-litre Injection was bought new by retired Essex gas engineer Albert Clarkson for a discounted £7,800 in 1986.<br />
<br />
He kept it in a dehumidified and centrally heated garage at his Canvey Island home to preserve its condition.<br />
<br />
The vehicle was elevated above the ground to protect its tyres and he took it for MOTs in his trailer even though he was not driving it.<br />
<br />
Albert parted with the Capri as he is devoting all his time to maintaining his other 'pride and joy', a 1969 Cortina. It was snapped up within two days of being listed with KGF Classic Cars, of Peterborough, Cambs.
