The car was then sent to Stanley's Autobody for a complete repaint. The Mercury was then painted Ford Performance White with Dupont Waterbase Paint (2012). The car shines absolutely beautifully and still shows like new with no defects. I have some leftover paint in a pint that will be given to the next owner. The Capri sits on a set of staggered TSW 18" Valencia Wheels with Nitto NT05 front tires and Nitto NT05R rear tires (Staggered). I have a Marti Report for the Capri which shows it is an original 5. 0L 5 Speed car produced on February 7. 1983. The Ford Racing 331 block was purchased new in May of 2015. and was then assembled by Danbury Competition Engines in Danbury CT. The engine sounds beautiful with no smoking. noises. or leaks.

The negatives: The vehicle was tuned with Megasquirt tuning. it really needs to be tuned for cold starts. It acts like a carbureted car and stalls out without a little gas. It only does this on cold starts. once it sees a little temperature it is fine and holds idle just fine. The driver door gasket is still new and it takes a little extra effort to shut the door. The factory air conditioning set up is in place. the compressor with bracket is not. the compressor went bad and was never replaced. Install a new compressor. charge it. and it will work.
I am more than happy to assist with shipping the Capri at your expense. also willing to pick up from the local Airport (Bradley International in Hartford CT (BDL) or Westchester County airport (HPN) if the potential buyer would like to fly in and drive it home. Any questions just message me on here or feel free to call me at 203-695-4873. Thanks
