1968 Charger / 1969 Daytona - BIG MUSCLE Garage
The 1968 Dodge Charger and the 1969 Dodge Daytona. Two cars based off the same platform with very different personalities. These two old sleds are different though, 'cause well, they belong to me (your host) and they're the reason that BIG MUSCLE exists today. These are not show ponies, cruisers or weekend projects, but two warhorses that have been run in some of the toughest long distance and performance events in the United States. Built for reliability, power and performance, they are not technological marvels, but old school resto-mods that have been updated for one reason and one reason only - to put smiles on the faces of all those who see them.

A Striking Pre-facelift, One Owner from New Ford Capri 1600 with Custom Plan 'L' Pack. SOLD
A tremendous pre-facelift, one owner from new Ford Capri 1600 with Custom Plan 'L' Pack.
Chromed front and rear bumpers, rectangular sealed beam headlamp units with integral sidelights, chromium plated Exhaust trim, lockable fuel cap, dummy air scoops, heater/demister two speed fan, single speed windshield wipers, foot operated two jet windshield washers, padded sun visors, interior light, front package tray, interior bonnet release, front and rear ashtrays.
This stunning early Ford Capri is finished in Ford Red, (colour code BN), and has a deep glossy finish. This car stands very proud and attracts positive reactions everywhere. According to his son, the owner wanted a base 1600 for the design purity but opted for this vehicle to avoid the long waiting time! Fitted with the Custom Plan L Pack, (the exterior dress-up pack), he removed the bright metal trim and kept it boxed thus creating the look he desired! There are a few micro-blisters at the top of the passenger 'A' pillar. Repair sections have been professionally welded in the floor and inner rear wheel arches but it is structurally perfect and dry. The chrome is bright and in excellent order. The original front screen has some wiper arm markings. A stunning Capri.
The slide-mounted, adjustable, bucket-style front seats are deep wide and beautifully sprung. They are in excellent condition with no tears or markings. The driving position is low with all the instrumentation clear and operational. An additional tachometer was fitted in 1973 and is a beautiful period accessory in full working order. There are no cracks in the fragile dash top and the heater fan is functioning. The original black carpeting is a little worn in places but still very presentable. The out-of-sight 'lights on' rocker switch has been replaced and a period wooden Mountney steering wheel fitted. The original item still boxed to return to standard if required. The door cards and roof lining are all in excellent order with a few tiny nicks. Delightful, retro and comfortable.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The famous 1600 Kent engine is still fitted to this original Capri and is strong, well maintained and responsive. Offering 75 bhp and a top speed of 93mph it has a clean crisp Exhaust note and is brilliant fun. Simple mechanics and excellent parts availability ensure cost effective running costs for the novice classic car owner. The short, remote floor shift offers slick changing through the superb 4-speed all-synchromesh gearbox and the diaphragm spring clutch is light and progressive. Wonderful.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Shortly after purchase the owner invested in the now highly desirable 5 ½ X 13 Shelby Cal 500 Slot Mag Alloy Wheels. These are immaculate and the invoice in the history file from John Brown Wheels revealed these cost £80 new! Decent tyres and ample tread with strong brakes offer safe handling.
This vehicle was purchased new by George Hall on the 1st January 1970 and supplied by Ford Agents, Perry's of Southend. All the original documents are supplied with the car including the green Buff Style Log Book, Capri Owner Handbook, Capri Food Service Booklet and even the manufacturers build specification sheet! The careful owner has kept every MOT from the first in 1973! On passing away the vehicle was transferred to his son in May 2012, a Mr James Hall.
All spare keys remain present, an original Ford Capri Brochure is included in the sale and 12 Months MOT. The vehicle is tax exempt and is HPI clear.
Joe's Epic Ford Capri
Just a video clip of my images from the shoot i did with Joe and his Capri. Small bit of video of us playing in a tunnel!
Ford Capri Mk1 - 160 Hp - Pinto Race Engine
My Capri mk1 GT with Pinto engine and Brainless Exhaust System 3" Selfmade with Hks Muffler and Fk dumper and Magnaflow with Race Headers. Sounds great for an Pinto OHC Engine. Stainless Steel.
The engine is modified by my self and have a lot of horsepower. Never was on the roll, but i Dragraced again a Bmw E36 325 with 192Hp and I was faster by 1 second on the 1/4 Mile.
Crazy Sound with Wheelspin in 2. Gear. On the Hockenheim Race Track the car beats a Maserati Biturbo and some old Porsche 911. The Car is Street Legal.
Tyres are Federal SS595 with 205/60 R13 - great tyres for a good price. In future the car maybe become a capri turbo with a k04 turbocharger. The engine is a ohc pinto like in the escort mk2 rs2000 rally cars. but no 16v cosworth engine and no 1800rs.
It could be good to drive rallyes too to be an rally car.
the cars weight is only 890kg ;-) so the handling is really great!
I wishI could buy the Federal 595 RS-R in the right dimension.
