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.
