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.
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... :)
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.

The other Fox-Body (5.0 Mustang alternative) 1986 Mercury Capri
For the guys that love 5.0 Mustangs but don't want to be part of
the typical Mustang crowd,
the 5.0-liter Mercury Capri is the alternative to the 5.0 Mustang.... the "other Foxbody"
model. I absolutely love the 1986 model 5.0 Capri and this one is so
badass. I love this car!!! Anyway, I ran across it one day and had my GoPro
Hero in the car so I grabbed it and just had to share this awesome Foxbody
Capri with you guys. This is a unique '80s V8 Ponycar for sure.... also,
1986 was the last 5.0 liter Mercury Capri model produced. With this car you
can be cool and different at the same time, lol.... and I want one BAD!!!
