Thread: Project: Federalized Capri that was de-federalized and updated.

    Project: Federalized Capri that was de-federalized and updated.

    Might as well make a thread for the new project, not that it is a project, it's already pretty much finished.

    Long story short, we went out to Idaho and picked up a '77 Ford Capri II...that was sold as a federal model (gross).

    The owner before the previous owner attempted to remedy this somewhat, and at the same time upgraded it to the Mk3 look.

    It's not quite right, Euro bumper fitment isn't the greatest, front fenders are still Mk2, so is the front valence. The rear side markers give it away. The horrible federal Escort rearview mirrors have got to go.

    What it does have going for it is that it is completely rust-free, has a nice looking paint job (some Porsche color, can someone figure out what it is?), and the lovely interior of a British Mk3.

    It also has a freshened-up 2.8, and some new parts in the steering department. It does need some minor mechanical work, mostly brakes.

    On to some pictures:













    It had a little friend tag along for the ride, a true German market Mk3...but alas, that one isn't mine.

    Was that car ever registered in BC? Looks a lot like one a friend of mine built quite some time ago.

    That's awesome! Yes, the car came from Vancouver, BC. I think it came to the USA circa 2011? It sure is a small world!
    I love the paint color by the way, great choice.
