Description for Mercury Capri 1986

You are looking at a 1986 ASC Mclaren Eurocoupe Capri. This vehicle was shipped from Ford directly to ASC for modifications. What made this a Eurocoupe is the lack of t-tops or sunroof and the decals were omitted. All other ASC equipment was installed by ASC including the headlight and taillight covers, 1/4 glass covers, Hella Foglights, Whistler Spectrum remote radar detector, 140 mph speedometer, Alpine stereo, Kenwood speakers, ASC specific horn pad and leather wrapped shift knob, front and rear air dams and side ground effects, ASC spoiler, and ASC specific OZ wheels painted orange. This is one of the most original ASCs I have ever seen down to the air intake silencer and stock mufflers from 1986. I have the 4 orange wheels which need to be redone, the previous owner swapped them out for the 10 hole wheels with mercury center caps. All maintenance records are impeccably documented. The car had a repaint, not the original color back in 2002, its actually a nicer color than the original. The car was Ziebarted when new and never driven in winter, it was always garaged which has led to not a spot of rust on the car. The bottom of the doors are spotless, door jambs, under the hatch all good. The underneath of the car is dirty but no rust. The front air dam has had a couple repairs and there are a couple dings on the driver side that would be good candidates for paintless dent removal. Also the rear ground effects have a strange angle to them, I do not see any damage and they are very solid so I cant really say why they look that way. The interior is spotless, no rips, everything works, even the radar detector and radio. It could use a new carpet to be perfect although this one may be able to be cleaned. The cargo cover is functional and tight and the spare, jack and lug wrench are intact and have never been used. There are no engine modifications besides a new alternator, water pump, valve cover gaskets and some hose clamps. Everything else is exactly as it left the factory. The headlight and taillight covers are showing their age and could be replaced if desired. I drove this car home over 300 miles and it runs perfect. I just changed the oil and filter and replaced the clutch cable. It doesnt need anything besides a good detailing and the previously mentioned dings repaired. This is a perfect car for the ASC enthusiast, the documentation alone is incredible to find let alone a car in this condition that is 32 years old! You dont see these every day, there were 47 Eurocoupes produced in 1986 and only 11 of them were smoke charcoal gray metallic and of those generally half were automatic and half were standard which makes this one of 5 cars! I cant bring myself to modify this car to make it the way I want it so I am looking for a purist to give it a good home and preserve the heritage that ASC gave it. Thanks for looking and feel free to ask any questions prior to bidding.
