MK1 Mercury capri from USA

Postby sparkycapri » Sun Feb 01, 2009 9:46 pm

I finaly pulled the mercury out of its resting place of the past 6 years because I am considering
selling it to raise some cash against my better judgement.
Question is whats it worth?
2.8 V6 manual loads of paperwork incl pink slip & import docs, runs & drives but paint is very microblistered with a few bubbles in the usual places.

Gave it a wash off but the water was freezing on it as i was doing so (kin cold today!)

That ain't a '73 US spec car, it's a '74 US spec car... here's a '73 rear bumper...

I don't have a front bumper on mine, but here it is anyway...

You should pull those bumpers off, the car will raise up about an inch(25mm)
