Capri 2.8 special project for sale

Post by Dansta »

With a heavy heart I am selling my Capri 2.8 special. Due to recent divorce and lack of funds my motivation to complete has subsided.

Plan was to fit a 2.8 EFI engine with a T3T4 hybrid turbo front mounted along the lines of a Tickford. Ive fabricated exhaust headers for this.

It's 1985 B reg
No engine or gearbox in the car
2.8 efi engine rebuilt with low compression pistons, new bearings, reground journals, reprofiled cam, etc.
T3/T4 hybrid turbo on a front manifold
Electric water pump kit
EPAS hydraulic pump
Megasquirt ECU
New large radiator (plus original)
Intercooler plus oil cooler.
4 new bilstein dampers F/R
Type 9 gearbox partially reassembled using HD BGH gearkit
Old 2.8 MFI parts plus the remainder of the EFI parts.
Original engine has been sold bit could be put back to original 2.8i engine spec. Front end hasn't been modified to fit the new cooling parts.
15" JBW alloys with Toyo tyres

Interior is all there. Shark grey recaro seats and interior. Not original for the car but in good nick.

Looking for a sensible offer. Location is near Warwick.

I'll try and upload some photos when I remember how to

Also bodywork is in good nick. Had a bare metal restoration 10 years ago or so with photos.

No visible bodywork rust, some small paint bubbles. Sunroof needs adjusting too.
