Hehe funny that. And I didn't realise this would get so much interest, it may well deserve it's own category yet!

Yes your right Dan they are the same type I had in my mk2 Escort

Re: Capri Clock

I'm not saying it's right or wrong, I'm simply quoting from the book. :) Andrew. Can I just say that in the other book on the ford Capri where Henry Ford JNR told the world about The Pinto being the best Engine in The World . There’s no mention of the clock in that book or the secret books there af...

Re: Capri Clock

Re: Sill hem color

I can confirm that the last laser and all the 280s did not have a black sill , also my other Mercury grey Capri never had a black sill . I will try and find the original photos I got from the 1st owner of mine as a later one shows no black sill . https://i.postimg.cc/SR0G1Dp7/182280-D3-E7-F0-4605-BB...
