    Someone's put in a lot of effort on that car although it's not to everyone's taste. Parts alone should fetch a few quid.

    Would have been interesting to see the finished car.

    Agreed, though it's not to my taste after the primary pic. Somehow after that, the colour goes bad, and the views of the bonnet are less complimentary, but probably unfair to be judging even that much with it unfinished. A lot of Americans would love to finish that. ;)

    Thought someone might post this.... Saw it last night looks pretty cool npbut I do agree it would be better without the bumper...... Still if it doesn't go to high wouldn't be a terrible car to buy and finish off.....

    :sleepy: err hmmmm :boxedin:

    Not really my taste. A wiser course would be to have bought a mustang in the first place, rather than try and make a capri look like a mustang

    Right now, it's neither. The work looks to be really good quality, so as it's only the front end, you could return it back to a capri by changing the wings/bonnet front panel.

    An alternative is do something with the awful (in my view) front bumper arrangement and keep the rest.

    Sadly, I don't think he'll be getting back his 15k.

    Bit of a lesson there. The more you modify to your taste, the more you close down resale options. This is a real one off and obviously what someone wanted, but I'm not sure many would take this route if they fancied an Eleanor clone.

    I think the only way for this to be sold is very cheap, unfortunately, which is a real shame.

    Compared to my real one if he gets £15k for it it make mine a bargain

    Hi Steve all fine over here hope your all keeping ok. Yes the mustang is very nice, I didn't plan to buy it just an offer I couldn't refuse. I still have the 3.0ghia playing with the idea of changing it but can't decide, ever time I think about selling I think that I won't get another as good as it for the money, I even bought a 2.8 to replace it but sold that and kept the 3.0 lol.
    Regards
    Gary
