I believe this car has a 351 Windsor engine. This video was taken on Saturday at 'Powercruise' Eastern Creek February 2009.
I used to own a light blue Ford Capri with a fully worked 302 Windsor, 9" disc rear end, but i sold it years ago.
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!
Ford EL Fairmont Ghia 1997 - 4.0 litre inline 6 cylinder fuel injected.
Running my Ford on camera for posterity as at the time i had recently sold it.
The car has a Pod filter, Extractors, high flow catalytic converter, 2.5" sports Exhaust with sports mufflers. Lowered on heavy duty King Springs with Gas shocks.
By the way, i wasn't flooring the Accelerator (throttle), nor was i trying to do a burnout in this video.
Fat Capri Cruising up the M40
Here I am cruising up the M40 driving nice and slow so my mate Colin can grab this bit of video from Cliff's VW Camper! There's no truth in the rumour that I'm keeping to the left of my lane to dodge bits falling off the Camper :-)
The sharp-eyed among you will see I've removed the blower to make the car more driveable - it may go back on when I have more time to fiddle, but at the moment it's great to have a drive-anywhere car! Satin black paint is new too. Long live Mad Max and the last of the V8 Interceptors.
