Please note, this is not some tarted-up, so-called restoration; this vehicle drives, rides, handles and looks like a nearly new Capri, with only a few imperfections and limited modifications such as a Momo period-correct steering wheel. If you want the Capri from your past, without the expense (and headaches) of a costly restoration, this Capri is for you. Only a handful of imported European
Mk. 1 Capris (1970-1973) in the U.S. are in this stunning condition. First place winner at several car shows.
The following slide is just some pics of my 1986 Ford Capri going through some restoration work.
Test Drive the 1974 Ford Capri V8!
Hi! This is Agent 8771's 1974 Ford Capri, featuring a high-output 302 V8 and Borg-Warner T5 transmission hooked to a Ford 9 inch positraction rear. This car originally had the wheezy Pinto 2000 cc engine and 4 speed trans, so it is much better now. A nice, original, rust-free unit brought up from the States to save it from the idiotic "cash for clunkers" stupidity. Sweet vintage aluminum slot mags, nerf bars, and diamond-tuft package tray finish this Capri off in classic 70's style! Hope you like it as much as I do!
