CULT CAR - THE FORD CAPRI
The Ford Capri is an iconic car. From its development in the late 1960s it
became hugely popular and well-loved, instantly recognisable on the streets
of 70s Britain, as much a part of that decade as kipper ties and
flared-trousers! It even became a TV star in the hands of 'The
Professionals!' Although it finally went out of production in December
1986, many of these vehicles are still in existence, lovingly cared for by
individuals and groups of enthusiasts all over the country. The Capri's
best-remembered advertising slogan was 'the car you always promised
yourself' and, in the knowledgeable company of John Hill, chairman of The
Capri Club International, we met up with some Capri owners who made that
promise come true. We take a closer look at this wonderful car and see it
in action, come rain or shine! Move over Bodie and Doyle!

mit stil: Ford Capri May Turbo | motor mobil
Gelber Lack und reichlich PS unter der langen schwarzen Motorhaube. Der
Ford Capri von Christian Nießen.Das schnelle Coupé mit May turbokit ist eine absolute Rarität. Denn als der
Ford Capri 1969 das Licht der Öffentlichkeit erblickte, war turbopower noch nicht in Sicht. Der stärkste
Motor war zunächst ein 2,3 Liter V6 mit 108 PS. Knapp 1,1 Millionen Capris
der ersten Serie wurden verkauft. Wie viele der ursprünglichen Capris mit
dem May turbolader getunt wurden, ist
heute nicht mehr bekannt. Christians Modell von 1971 leistet nach der
Umrüstung rund 200 PS.
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!
