ford capri 3.9 rover v8 start up
First time start up in over 2 years. Last run was in 2002 at Avon park
raceway with a 11.3 at 123mph. but in process of making it street legal
again. Vehicle was Dyno at 320bhp without nos, but
has had a extra 100bhp to run a 11.3. as got jets for 200bhp but never at
the chance. Engine has run down into the low 10s in a another vehicle, but
since then it's been upgraded and rebuilt.
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!

1973 Ford Capri Lunch Time Restoration
My first attempt at a slide show. Pics from the last three years as we
restore/rebuild a 1973 Ford Capri MK1 on our lunch hour(s) at the Eastwood
Company. Many new products were developed and tested on this car. Hope to
have it in paint Summer of 2014
