Mercury Capri sales training video 1991 1992 1993 1994 Part 1
First half of product familiarization video for sales personnel for the newly-introduced 1991 Mercury Capri. Great background for Capri fans (I had a '94). Based on this video, you'd think the Capri would have sold much better! Judge the video from a 90s perspective, not today's. Ohhh, the 90s. So much color, so much hope, so much fun... :)

1983 Mercury Capri rs 5.0
This is my Capri I bought it in 1989 and drove it for years until I had kids.I stored it for a few years and started the restoration in 1994 it took me ten years to get it up and running but I did end up taking every single piece of this car apart and did all the work myself other than the machine work for the motor and I did not paint it.The theme is to look exactly like it did in 1983.The hardest part was finding 1983 ground effects.Other than the stero and tinted windows this is a correct 1983.

1973 Mercury (Ford) Capri 2000, 4-Speed --- "The Sexy European" --- FOR SALE
1973 Mercury (Ford) Capri 2000. 4-Speed -- "The Sexy European". Factory medium brown metallic with original black vinyl roof and decor group. A museum-quality 'survivor' with only 30,175 actual miles, housed in a climate-controlled environment for the last 13 years. 2nd owner, garaged kept since purchased new in 1973, and never used as primary transportation. Photos Can Be Viewed Here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/38070621@N04/ Vehicle never smoked in, no mildew odors, no road accidents, or any rust; all original paint, trim, glass, entire interior, vinyl roof, engine, drivetrain, etc., each in outstanding condition. Normal wear items -- tires, shocks, battery, master brake cylinder, brake lines, brake components, filters, etc., replaced at 25,000 miles or periodically with FoMoCo or OEM replacement parts. Original Dunlop spare in trunk; Dunlop replacements on car in correct size. Professionally maintained by Pterodactyl Racing, a premier vintage racing organization. Currently insured/appraised by classic car insurer at $15,750 -- with historic tags. Documentation, manuals, and spares with purchase. Please note, this is not some tarted-up, so-called restoration; this vehicle drives, rides, handles and looks like a nearly new Capri, with only a few imperfections and limited modifications such as a Momo period-correct steering wheel. If you want the Capri from your past, without the expense (and headaches) of a costly restoration, this Capri is for you. Only a handful of imported European Mk. 1 Capris (1970-1973) in the U.S. are in this stunning condition. First place winner at several car shows.





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.
