Liking the RS, is the X-pack a Ford kit from new?
Lothian reg plate, is it a local car Malcolm?

Hi John…it’s an Alexander’s of Edinburgh car. I am third owner and had it 35 years. Started of as a base model RS2000 ( stil doesn’t have the clock pod) but over the years fitted fishnet recarros and then 8 years ago during a full resto I had them fit a genuine Ford Xpack kit. Did have a matching blue Xpack 3.0 Capri for 10 years till I bought the Audi…..and now trying to reduce the number of cars I have so Audi and P100 may be going…getting too old!! 😱😱

It's a lovely looking example, I always liked the Ford script embossed in the lower bit of the quarter panel. Had a 2 door X-pack about 30-years ago but it wasn't a Ford kit.....it was a bit of a mongrel !
How did you come to have the coupe?
