Re: Help! Take a look at the Capri timeline

I’m sure the earliest laser I saw was A reg and in champagne gold!

Re: Help! Take a look at the Capri timeline

The red injection looks too much like the special; I’d change the wheels and alter the injection stripe to the early version where the top coach line continues over the lettering.
Otherwise lovely poster!

3.7injection

Hi thought this looks like an interesting 2.8; reasonably priced, has anyone driven one of these 3.7 cologne conversions?

Re: New Car Show

Perhaps James May and Ed China could do their version; just the two of them...walk into a workshop find the car totally in bits and reassemble it.... They could give it away in a competition...text a number, or auction off and donate to charity! I’ll watch the Capri episode they both take the herita...

Re: Professionals Capri stunts

No never did the stunts, never had the skills, but did get the back end out a few times!
Did play the theme tune and minder as well when I first got mine.

Closest I got to being Doyle was doing a rallying experience in a yellow mk2 escort!

Re: Leather gear knob recovering

Have you tried CCI?

They used to sell them on an exchange basis, mind you it was a long time ago when I got mine!
The quality was good as well.

Re: More Capri prototypes

If Ford kept the original side window on Colt/GBX, I think it would have evolved into this side window on the mk2/3!

Re: Capri MK2 or MK3 3.0 Ghia Wanted

i think there is a mix of both front seats, the bases are later in shape, and they have piping on the edges.

Re: Capri MK2 or MK3 3.0 Ghia Wanted

I like this mk2 auto although it will need a bit of work, looks like an early Ghia with one colour interior and black centred wheels https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1976-Ford-Capri-3-0-Ghia-Auto/264223027639?hash=item3d84eb71b7:g:KKUAAOSwDEBcLV4S:rk:3:pf:0 This is a later Ghia https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/...

Re: Saxty's Capri Scrapbook

If you can picture a slightly longer boot / rear overhang, giving a more fastback rear rake, that would be ideal!
Think the rear profile shape of the DB10 in Spectre rather than the Scirocco shape that this is similar to...

Re: Capri MK2 or MK3 3.0 Ghia Wanted

Found this on carandclassic, although started life as a 3.0ghia, now an S replica with decent 2.8i interior (using 5 speed front seats)!

I’ve copied the link here purely because it looks in good condition;

Great models, would love the mk2 but there’d be a long queue!
I wish I could spend a day looking at all their history archive, your book gave a great insight.

Re: Capri 500 Prototype

Hi Steve I was going to mention this Capri in the RS2800 thread but the posts got too long! I thought the badging was going to be gold as well, but with the burgundy extras inside then I guess the red stripe would have tied it all in... Perhaps change the white stripe and lettering to gold, as the w...
