    Does anyone have any information on this Capri?

    I believe it was a former gold winner at the CCI Nationals back in 2009?

    Any info or old pictures would be great as I am interested in purchasing it.

    Thanks Guys

    That made me laugh but be careful or you'll become a capri lozer.

    Good bargaining power, if it hasn't got a MOT.

    however - that rusty sill in the vicinity of the suspension mount --
    be aware what happens below what you can see ...

    ignore that rusty sill and the suspension mount, the box sections, and the wheel tub cop it ..
    look under the back seat squab !!

    Can be many labour hours for a professional repair and the culprit, the sunroof drain tube, what was the design engineer thinking at Ford.
