This Capri I've owned for just over 4 years but I've had numerous Capris over the last 13 years. Its fairly close to standard, but it has been fitted... Show more with a Holley 350 carby and various chrome items, such as rocket covers and alternator. I haven't done much work to it in the time that I've owned it, other to replace worn parts/interior with better 2nd hand items. The car was oringinally Green with a brown interior, but is now Silver with a black interior, which I prefer. It could do with a retrim, but I own 5 other cars so it could be a while before I get around to it. I use this car for club outings and events clocking up about 2000 mls each year. Its no concourse winner.....I'd much rather drive it than shine it. The lovely V6 is great to drive and will sit on 110 all day long. There's bags of torque and compared to the 4cyl Capris that I've had in the past, its like driving a totally different beast all together.Haven't done much to this car other than enjoy driving it. Added some GT stripes and Superlite wheels to smarten up the appearance. Maybe looking at getting the interior done and motor rebuilt next year. Show Less
This is my Mk 3 Capri Project not long after I bought it....2 years ago!!! I can't believe its been that long.
I've had been searching for a Mk 3 Cap... Show moreri for 6 years prior to this one coming up for sale. They were never availble for sale in Australia, so they are very rare. The only one around are personal imports.
This car came out the factory as a base model 1300 back in 1978. The original owner then emigrated to Perth in Wa back in the early 80's. The daughter then inherited the car and moved to Melbourne.....Yes, its well travelled. The car was advertised for $2000 back in mid 2004. I rushed over to look at it but before I could get there it had been sold to another Capri Club member....Over the next few weeks I negotiated with two people to purchase the car, minus the seats and rear bumper for $600 MORE than it was original advertised for. How's that for inflation!!!!
My Uncle owned a Mk III 3.0s from new and from the age of 8 I've always wanted to own one myself, so I currently rebuild this car into a replica of that car. When complete, it will be Signal Orange with a 3.1lt Essex V6 connected to a 4speed Escort box....But that will be a while off yet. Stay tuned. Show Less
