Braintree and Witham Times: Ian Nixon and the 1980 Ford Capri Ian Nixon and the 1980 Ford Capri

A wedding car chauffeur is parting with his pukka Ford Capri which featured in classic comedy, Only Fools and Horses.

Ian Nixon, of Cressing, was no dipstick when he bought the car, dubbed the Pratmobile by Rodney Trotter, in 1998 from Elstree Studios.

He is now hoping the cushty vehicle will be a nice little earner when it is auctioned by Coys at the Auto Sport Car Show in Birmingham on Saturday.

The auctioneers have put an estimate of £24,000 to £28,000 on it.
