This is a 9/10 example of the beautiful pre-facelift MK 1 capri in the baby blue that was used in all the launch campaign literature in 1969. It has a brand new 137 bhp cross flow engine built by Tooveys with Burton sourced performance pistons, flywheel, head, cam and clutch along with brand new twin Weber 40 carbs and an aluminium radiator. This engine is now just about run-in and has the correct balance of torque with loads of pull as the performance cam kicks in...it pulls like a train and sooooooo so smooth...it just brings a massive smile to your face and sounds sweet as a nut. Being an early 1600L it has a very basic dash (strangely appealing) so has no rev counter...so you just need to learn to drive this car on the cam...it really is a joy to drive and pulls flawlessly through to 70mph in third. I personally love leggy four-speed Fords and this one paired with this particular engine is absolutely brilliant. This is a car that attracts more double-takes than any classic car I've ever re-built...it looks like it's brand new and just rolled out of the showroom. The car in it's current form is imo actually mechanically better than when it left the factory because of the improvements I've made...the only things you can really mark this car down for is the cracked dash board...it's just something I haven't been able to find a good solution for because this is one of the only 3 surviving UK registered Capri's with the blue interior....very rare...very rare indeed and very nice, some of the brightwork has started to dull (not much to be fair) and the guy I bought the Rostyles from didn't do a great job on the black paintwork and has just started to lift. Since buying the car last year as an unfinished project I've fitted / replaced; The new engine and clutch (original numbers matching engine [runner] comes with the car, as do the original exhaust and radiator. Rebuilt the original 4 speed gearbox. Overhauled the rear axle. Fitted full length stainless steel exhaust.
