Re: D53 MCY - Anyone know where it is?

A search on Google brings up a few photos from that same advert which was on Turbosport forum at the same time as the Laser Page ad.

It would appear to have been scrapped in July 2019 though from what I can see, sorry.

Re: 2.8i cutting out won’t run

Have you checked that the fuel return into the tank isn’t blocked up? Found this was the one issue stopping a 2.8 running that we were trying to get going after a long lay up and like on your car, it would run for two or three seconds before the actual internal return pipe in the fuel tank was clear...

Re: Color for my late father's car

Seeing the photo of your dad’s capri when it was/is red and being Highland Green when new uncannily reminds me of my first Capri, 1979 2.0S that was red with a black vinyl roof when I bought it in 1989. I had to change the windscreen soon after buying it and turns out the car had been painted red wi...

Re: Capri MK2 or MK3 3.0 Ghia Wanted

Hi folks

Still looking for a Capri - I did view a couple of cars over the last few months but no purchase made yet.

If you are thinking of selling your car or know of a 3.0 Ghia or S, Mk2 or Mk3, that is for sale can you let me know?

Cheers!

Re: Capri MK2 or MK3 3.0 Ghia Wanted

Hi Andy, Thank you for taking the time to post the links to those three Capris I have spotted all three previously, the White Mk3 and Gold Mk2 are both contenders however the red one does seem to require a bit of work, it is priced to reflect its current condition though in fairness. I did procrasti...

Capri MK2 or MK3 3.0 Ghia Wanted

Hi folks I've been lucky enough to own a few really nice capris over the years, sold my last Capri in 2011. The car I miss most of them all was a Hawaiian Blue MK2 3.0 Ghia with BVR, delivered new as an auto but converted to manual, great car. Does anyone know of an original, decent Mk2 or Mk3 3.0 G...

WANTED - Capri Mk3 Genuine Ford Front Passenger Side Wing

I know its a bit of a tall order but I'm looking for a NOS Genuine Ford Capri Mk3 passenger side front wing if anyone has one, will even take a pair if required.

I have every other panel for my car forward of the windscreen and this is the last piece of the puzzle.

Cheers

Re: looking for a good mk1 rolling shell

It's a pity that you won't travel to Scotland for the Mk1 shell on Turbosport as its a cracker with only minimal work needed to get it ready to use. It would be in my garage if I had the cash! The shell is not far from me & the bloke has had good offers for the front end & boot/rear chassis from two...

Re: genuine wing and 3lt swaymar manifold, whale tail

To give you an idea, I recently bought two Ford wings that had been carefully taken off a Mk3 with probably as much work needed to them as your one does prior to re-fitting, cost me £45 each

Hope this helps
