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!
Hägglunds BV 206 | Uncovered engine - Ford "Cologne" 2.8L V6
Hard sob to start, but figured out that the gearbox has a safety mecanism
that prevents the starter to engage on to the flywheel, only clicking the
relay, unplugging the contakt on the gearbox and bridge the two faulting
cables with a piece of steel wire got the starter to do what its told, and
the engine just turned and started. The gearbox is a Mercedes automatic 4
stage gearbox, its followed by a high/low gearbox in the back of the cab,
the gearbox is taken from Mercedes because of its rare "towstart" function,
which means that you can tow the cat on low gear and the momentum is
transfered on to the flywheel.

Portadown Country comes to town 2011, apparently this is one of the
original cars from the show.Martin Shaw delivered the car to the currant
owner himself and signed the car under the bonnet, the hand written letter
on the dash detailed this and wished the guy luck on the project as a lot
of work was needed.
