    Hi I’m unsure how to add a pic but it’s a gxl Sebring red in colour which I’ve owned going on 12 years.in this time it’s been tidied a little in fact just had new beta cloth seat inserts fitted to complete the interior.
    Any advice on putting up pics would be greatly appreciated.
    Merry Xmas.

    Welcome to this forum. What a car, looks great.

    Nice part of NZ you live, I was there years ago though I expect it's changed a lot post earthquake.

    Yes it’s changed,the roads are sh***y and will be many years before everything is back to normal.our climate tho is ideal to keep these old cars in good condition and I know of at least 20 other capris in my area and there’s more hidden away no one sees.

    Great looking car and in lovely condition. Have you upgraded your alternator and if yes where did you get it (and what model is it)?

    I'm in the Hutt Valley by the way (Wellington).

    Hi yes I did get the alternator upgraded several years ago as at the time I had a modern stereo in the glove box and an alarm fitted.Ive since removed both so could intact refit the original.ive just checked and it’s a rtx brand with serial no 9443 if that helps plus it excepts the original plug so no mods required.my car is complete with bits left over if you need anything.
