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 handling.
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 parcel shelf.
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.
1978 Mercury Grand Marquis Video 1 Owner 6.6L 400 V8 Classic Youngtimer Lincoln Town Car Ford Sedan
78 Mercury Grand Marquis 312,000 Miles Near Mint 1 Owner 6.6L 400 Big Block
Classic Youngtimer http://www.1ownercarguy.com This is a very cool car.
Usually I like cars with really low miles but this car is sol cool because
it has 312,000 original miles on it and runs like a newer car. This is only
a 1 Owner Car and yes the miles are actual. The previous owner drove the
car back and fourth from Canada to California. You would never guess the
miles by looking at the car. The factory baby blue paint is in great shape
and has a very nice shine to it. The factory white vogue top looks great on
the car and is in about as good of shape as you will find. The body is
straight as can be and the paint is original. It has the 6.6L 400 engine
that fires right up and runs great. It has been rebuilt along with many
other things on the car. I talked to the mechanics that worked on the car
and they remembered the guy and how good he took care of his car and really
liked it. You would have to really like a car to put that many miles on it.
The car feels and handles like a newer car and just floats down the road.
The interior is in mint condition along with the rest of the car. Only the
drivers seat shows minimal wear. It looks like he was the only one that
made the trips because none of the other seats look like they hardly ever
got sat in. Everything about this car is just clean as can be. You won't
find another car like this.

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!
Zakspeed Ford Turbo Capri
Zakspeed Ford turbo Capri beim AvD
Oldtimer GP 2012 auf dem Nürburgring. Peter Zakowski fährt das Original
Meisterschaftsauto von 1981, mit dem Klaus Ludwig damals gewann.
Das Fahrzeug ist mit dem kleinen Motor der Division 2 bestückt mit 1,4l
In beiden Rennen sah Zakowski die Zielflagge wegen technischer Probleme
nicht. Im Rennen 1 bedrängt er Oliver Mathai im Porsche 935 und im Rennen
2 räumt er binnen kürzester Zeit das Feld von hinten auf.
Sowohl nach dem Training als auch nach dem ersten Rennen wurde am Fahrzeug
umfangreich gearbeitet. Der Ladedruck ist noch nicht eingestellt und
deshalb hat P.Zakowski die Hand häufiger mal am "Dampfrad".
Vom turbo Capri wurden insgesamt fünf
Fahrzeuge gebaut. Ein Fahrzeug wurde zerstört, eines zu einem Mustang umgebaut, ein Fahrzeug wurde
von Herbert Stenger bei Bergrennen eingesetzt, ein Fahrzeug baut Stefan
Mücke in Berlin wieder auf und hier eben das 1981er Meisterschaftsauto bei

2004 Mercury Grand Marquis Blower Motor Repair -EricTheCarGuy
This video shows my little 'adventure' as I repair the blower motor on this
2004 Mercury Grand Marquis. The Grand Marquis is pretty much the same as
the Ford Crown Victoria or full sized Lincoln. I did end up fixing it in
the end but it took a little bit to get to the bottom of the problem. I'll
admit that was my own doing but all's well that ends well I suppose. There
is another version of this video that goes into more detail available to
