1973 Ford Capri Lunch Time Restoration
My first attempt at a slide show. Pics from the last three years as we
restore/rebuild a 1973 Ford Capri MK1 on our lunch hour(s) at the Eastwood
Company. Many new products were developed and tested on this car. Hope to
have it in paint Summer of 2014
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 recyclers yard. 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 Capri 3000GT Essex V6
This is my old 3 litre Capri - the bodywork needs restoring however, the
tuned and balanced engine is still very sweet and sounds great (shame about
the blowing Exhaust!)
Ford Capri V6 GT Skid Pan
Here's a vid of me flogging my Capri GT on the skid pan. It's not a great
video or necessarily a great piece of driving, but you don't see (or hear)
many original V6 Capris going sideways in Australia these days. Also has
amusing commentary and a mechanical failure towards the end. Enjoy!
