1981 Ford Capri 3000S
No reserve

Looks good in the picture doesn't it, but this Capri is being sold as a relatively simple restoration opportunity by Silverstone. It's what we like to call a rolling restoration, which you should be able to get back on the road easily enough, but to make it perfect, there's plenty to be getting on with. The MoT history from 2001-'02 shows a mileage of 7715 (more likely 107,715), and during the ensuing decade or so, that's risen to 12,971 - hardly a tough life. Could be an opportunity to grab a yellow Capri 3-litre - a car which has been rising sharply in values during the past five years or so.
