Re: Ford capri 2litre Laser 59000 miles for sale

Hi Sam. Sorry to hear you had to let your car go to a dealer. I would not be surprised to see it up for sale at £15,000 or more at some future date. Its such a shame as I would have loved have bought this car from you. Could not do anything till after Christmas and could not have obtained funds till...

Rear Seat Back Catches

Hi everyone. I need to remove the boot side trims from my Laser. Can anyone advise me how to remove the plastic knobs from the 2 levers that release the rear seat backs. Thanks in advance for any advice.

Regards

Re: Dash Speaker ?

I believe that any mk2 or mk3 Capri with a factory fitted mono radio would have had the dash mounted speaker.

The Laser was the only 4 cylinder model to have body coloured door mirrors when new.

Looking for good rust free 4 cylinder Capri

I may be asking the impossible, but I would be interested in buying a clean low mileage 4 cylinder Capri circa 1982/83 (pre the Spring 83 update) vintage. A Cabaret 1 or 11 would be ideal. A really good LS or even a Cameo could be a possible 2nd choice. Any help in finding the right vehicle would be...

Re: Mk3 GL Radio Query

I think the permanent live feed for the radio on the last of the lasers was taken from the clock.

Hope this helps.

MK3 Headlight Relay

The MOT on my laser is due at the end of May and I have noticed that my main beam headlights have stopped working. This happened a few years back and my car passed the MOT with only an advisory 2 years running. I eventually fixed the problem by replacing the relay. Still have the old one. I have tak...

Re: 1600 v 2000

Many thanks for your advice guys. I have a 2.0 but would consider buying a 1.6 in the future if I came across an immaculate example.

1600 v 2000

Looking for opinions as to whether the 1.6 pinto may be better than the 2.0 pinto. I always thought the answer would be the 2.0 and I vowed in the eighties never to have another 1.6. However, I have seen an article in a recent copy of Classic Car Buyer that recommend the 1.6 for those not needing th...

Re: Where is she now?

As no information regarding DJX330Y has been received l am thinking of posting a wanted add on the sales and Wanted board. I would be looking for a rust free (tall order, I know). A 2.0 possibly a 1.6. (Quite like the early 1.6 LS or even 1.6 Cameo).

Re: Mk3 GL Radio Query

I had a 1980 Capri in the early 80s with brown seats & carpet. The parcel was brown and I'm pretty sure the carpet inserts were brown also.

Re: £15000 laser on eBay

I wonder if C450SOY sold at Mathewsons this time. I went to Mathewsons to have a look at this one. Bit hard to see it properly due to poor light and being surrounded by other cars (it was not an official viewing day). Did look very clean and solid under the bonnet. Mathewson is an interesting place ...

Re: Aldi Capri T-Shirt

I was in Aldi yesterday evening. Didn't see this one. Went back today and got one. They only had about 5 and only in medium. Thanks for the tip off Paul. Brilliant for less than £5.00.

Re: Winter tyres

I used to know a lady at work many years ago who had a MK2 1.6 GT in metallic purple (Think the colour was purple velvet). She told me that her car had winter tyres on when she got it and she never had any problems in winter. I'm sure we used to have worse winters on average in the 70s & 80s.
