Love the car I love the silver paint job and I must admit that “ S “ is in the wrong place as you don’t say 3.0 S

No that is correct. Here's a link to a 1977 Capri brochure. That should clear all questions up.

EDIT Link not working. Picture from brochure instead.

The car looks fantastic all striped up. A top job, a stunner of a 3.0S. Although the brochure shows the sills as black, I prefer the look of yours being body colour, the car actually looks lower & sportier for it. Glad you're now out & enjoying it.

Your car looks really fab mate, the mirrors can wait a while ;)

I will be the first to admit that I normally struggle to find the love for a mk2 but yours looks the dogs, you should be mighty proud of your efforts :cool:
