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.

likely due bad conrod bearing.
