Mercury Capri sales training video 1991 1992 1993 1994 Part 1
First half of product familiarization video for sales personnel for the
newly-introduced 1991 Mercury Capri. Great background for Capri fans (I had
a '94). Based on this video, you'd think the Capri would have sold much
Judge the video from a 90s perspective, not today's. Ohhh, the 90s. So much
color, so much hope, so much fun... :)
1983 Mercury Capri rs 5.0
This is my Capri I bought it in 1989 and drove it for years until I had
kids.I stored it for a few years and started the restoration in 1994 it
took me ten years to get it up and running but I did end up taking every
single piece of this car apart and did all the work myself other than the
machine work for the motor and I did not paint it.The theme is to look
exactly like it did in 1983.The hardest part was finding 1983 ground
effects.Other than the stero and tinted windows this is a correct 1983.
1984 Mercury Capri RS 5.0; built by John Young, Chris Grace of Brother's
Performance, Jonathan Kocks, Craig and Diversified Performance of Apex, NC.

'83 GT with a Built 351W at idle and pulling away
Well I finally got a video uploaded of my car since the recent 351W
rebuild. The motor now sports Brodix ST5.0R aluminum heads, TFS stage 2
cam, BBK ceramic coated longtube headers with O/R BBK X-pipe, Magnaflow
cat-back, and a 750 double pumper carb....etc....
1972 Mercury Capri V6 2600 startup ......and it's for sale !
This was my first car purchased in 1978. I drove it stock for a few years
then in 1981 I did a restoration (body work, paint, suspension, engine,
trans.) . I took off the stock rally wheels and bias tires and put on some
aluminum slot mag wheels with radials.
I installed an ANSA dual sport Exhaust
system with twin Ferrari resonator tips which improved the performance and
it sounded great!
Put air shocks in the back so I could lower the rear a bit to improve
I installed a high power stereo (hey it was 1981!) and this thing was
powerful at that time. I made a custom speaker enclosure to fit on the
I installed a set of aluminum rear window louvers and that set off the
styling nicely...at least I liked them !
The car handled great, the V6 and 4 speed made for a really quick and
nimble sports car. Plus it was very reliable for a 70's import. The only
issues I had was loosing a sync gear in the trans and it liked to go
through front end bushings..
The interior is in great shape but the dash is cracked. Actually I think
they all cracked after 4-5 years unless the car never saw the sunshine!
The body has some spots coming through but it's not in terrible shape. The
entire underside was undercoated.
Normal maintenance was performed over the years but along with belts,
hoses, etc... etc will need the front calipers rebuilt as the are sticking.
Otherwise it runs and drives good.
This is for sale if anyone is interested.
85 Mercury Capri New Engine First Time Startup
Just finished building a 347 stroker for my Capri bracket car to replace
the 351 Cleveland that I have been racing in several different
configurations for the past 23 years. Just started it for a short time to
set the timing and see if therre were any issues that needed immediate
attention. The next day I did the obligatory 20 minute break in cycle at
2500 rpm and varying the rpms.
