Hi folks, I thought I better post up some pictures of my french spec Mk1 Capri 1300 XL (pinto engine) I bought last year. When I got her she was completely standard and the story goes that it was bought new by a doctor in 1972 who then passed away in 1976...it was then laid up unti 2008 when the guy I bought it from found it and put it back on the road. When I got her she had only covered 60000km and has never been welded. The paint is all original except for one of the front wings that's been painted at some point. My original plan was to find a capri and drop in my cosworth V6 engine that I have sitting in my garage. But since finding this capri I've changed my plans and decided to keep it simple and just drop in a 2L pinto and lower it on a nice set of wheels. So far I've managed to source a 2L injection engine which I'll convert to run on a dgav carb and I've fitted some 2" lowering springs on the front with 1" lowering blocks on the back just to get an idea of the ride height so I can sort out the wheels for it. Due to a house move and a baby on the way things haven't moved along quite how I wanted but it still keeps me busy enough. These photos were taken a couple of days after buying it.
