been having a think and I need to know if they was any difference between the shells used on the 3.0 VS the shells on the 4 Cylinder models?
I am fully aware the 2.8 had extra bits added but I've never found out if the 3.0 did.
thanks on advance.

The 2.8 shell is basically the same as the 3.0S except that the battery tray was moved to the right hand side of the engine bay. Not all S models had a sunroof either, it was quite a pricey option at the time.

As you have just been told battery on opposite side and the v6 capris had extra strength ing to the strut tops a gusset in the corner of inner wing to bulkhead a plate across the strut turrets and some extra plates on the bottom of the turrets
