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

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

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!
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
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
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.
