Arrow My 1970 MKI Capri





It has a 2l Pinto in it that has had a new cam installed/porting/polishing/big valves installed and other minor things. Also have put extractors on it and a full exhuast as well as a larger Weber carby off a XD Falcon if I remember right. (all done early last year)

Also put 15 inch Superlites on as well as a rear spoiler, GT bonnet and re did the interior. Manual of course..

Any others with Capris out there? I am thinking of selling it but am not sure that I want to now that summer is coming!

Re: My 1970 MKI Capri

Yeah mate nothing wrong with driving it everyday. It has been resprayed about 5 years ago I would think and yes vermillion (orange) was the original colour. Are you from SA? If so keep in touch as I may be selling it in 3 - 4 months time...

Re: My 1970 MKI Capri

I don't have any pictures of the engine bay etc uploaded as I havent had the time yet. There is some minor rust here and there but nothing major to get worried about.
