***RARE** Vintage 5.0 GIA, 1982 mercury capri- excellent mechanical condition for sale
RARE CAPRI 5. 0
This 1982 Mercury Capri was my project car. i had it custom painted. transmission and engine overhaul even though it only has 50. 00 or so orginal miles on it. I wanted a "new like condition of my highschool dream car. However. age and family has caught up to me. and even though I was close to finishing. I just do not have time to finish by renivating and installing the interior. currently seats are installed.
If you want lots of get up and go power and a very fun car to drive this is an excellent car to have.
I no longer have room for all it's car parts. I have the interior parts for it however they are not attatched. The interior is the rest of the job that needs to be done.
Some time has lapsed since I had the custom job and some rust areas will need to be repaired under the paint near the gas area and spots around the sun roof.
Orginal TRX wheels with orginal tires. TRX wheel tires are still available by special order. Although you can replace the wheels with alternate type the rack and pinion system was designed to perform with the orignial OEM wheels.
If you look at the emission reports. they assumed because of the age of the car that it has had 4 owners. but infact it has only had 3. I was the third owner. The first owner bought it new off the lot and ran into financial troubles and there a lien put against it. Then it was parked. then a boy found it and purchased it from the orginal owner. but when I saw it and it being a RARE CAPRI 5. 0. I made him an offer and he sold it to me. I then proceeded to not drive it much either because I was fixing it up. So asumption was that it was over 100. 00. miles because of age instead of it's history. I had the car in the late 1990's so I can attest that it was NOT over 100. 00 miles. sO WHEN YOU VIEW THE VEHICAL REPORT. THINK OF THE MILIAGE WITH OUT THE 100. 00 MILES. So when the inspector put in mileage in the computer they put in over 100. 00 miles instead of the actual mileage. They couldn't belive that it has had such low miles. But because it was my project car. I didn't drive it much either. I ran a truck instead.
this rare 1982 mercury capri. nbsp; has the ability to have aircondtioning and cruise control. Currently the cruise control isn't working but it is availalble. This auction would come with all the interior parts separated from the interior ready for you to install or someone you know to do so for you. The air conditioning isn't connected. the heater and most of the electricity all work. I I had the drivers seat floor reinforced for a heavy person. I was heavy at the time.
q&a Will you add a few pictures that are not "photoshoped"
I have added twopictures of my car pictured in my driveway outside in natural light so you can see it "unphotoshoped". The other pictures were taken in my garage with a lot of light. The "highlites" that you are seeing on the car that look "photoshoped" is how the car was painted. I wanted the look of a car that was pictured in the showroom. So the autobody guy did exactly as I requested. Notice the fenders. areas in front of the back wheel well. the back fin sports effect on the hatch. they are all highlighted in a brighter blue. the rest of the car is black/with a ting of blue and an aurua borilallius over coat which is only noticiable in the sunlight. giving it a eirie shimmer. the car was painted that way to give it that "photoshoped" show car look.
The interior of the car is torn apart as I was working on the vehical's interior. it is drivable and there are seats which are mis-mashed colors. mainly black but the driver's seat is a burnt orange. The side wall plastic panels need to be installed. I have them. I just have not put them on. I have all the parts and pieces & if you purchase the car. you will get the parts and pieces to put the vehical's orginal type of interior together.
The running boards on the ground effects say "mustang" Long time ago. here were "capri" running bords available but they were made out of fiberglass and always cracked and got damaged so I had the body guy install the mustang ground effects and he custom made wheel wells around the tires. nbsp; the front ground effects are from a later bubble back model. the car exterior was completly custom. Every thing on this car though is OEM. You will be hard pressed to find a 5. 0 capri of this make and model. The super charge units are still avialble for these cars( not inculed in this auction) & the 6 and 8 cylinder motors are the only ones that can take the super charge fuel injection units. I did not have the fuel injection super charger unit installed because the car had plenty of kick for me. And the throaty rumble is amazing on this car! However. the super charger unit is an option for a new owner.
Although I have put alot of love and work and soul into this car. By purchasing this car. you agree to purchase it AS IS. in it's current condition. what ever that is and agree not to return it. You are aware of it being a project car and agree to purchase it as such. and not find a reason to return it. Although I have done major work on the car and I can not forsee any future repairs. by purchasing this car. you agree to be responsible for ANY AND ALL furture repairs what ever they might be upon reciept. There is no returns on this Item.
