Default 1980 Capri Build

Someone asked for pics of the capri build so here goes. 1980 capri, 460, C4, 8.8 with spool and 4.10:1 gears, 15x3.5 & 15x8 draglites. Still needs interior and paint work. I have a 8 point cage, frame ties, RCI racing seats, full autometer gauges, 3" cowl hood, full race suspension, and rear mounted optimas on each side of the 12 gallon fuel cell. Still need some parts so if you have anything available, let me know.

Sweet car man! My mom had one a really long time ago. I'll have to see if I can find some pictures of it (she's got pictures of all of her cars, lol).

I think this thread is in the wrong section. This is the introduction. I think you are looking for the vehicle snap shots section.

Sweet Capri BTW. My buddies dad had one that he stiffed a 351 Windsor in.

Thanks for making me feel old. Just kidding. If it was up to me, I would be building a late 60s, early 70s mustang so I love the old stuff. I would love to see the pics of her car if they are available.
