Description for Mercury Capri 1972

1972 Ford "European built" CapriThis is our 2nd one for ebay this month. and our LAST one. Low rust AZ CAR - DESERT SURVIVOR - Awesome factory classic European / AmericanGt coupe SUPER LOW RESERVE !!!Up for auction: Originally this Capri was a 2000 model 4 cyl car. Sometime in the last 8 yrs. the prev owner started to do a Ford V6 conversion. We have no idea the condition of the motor or rest of the drivetrain. Thecomponents where in good running order when the swap was started. but that wasseveral yrs ago and we cant say exactly what shape they are in now. But the motors have always been covered by the hood. and chances are they are stillusable once finished. but no promises. All we can say is finish the project someand try to fire it up and see what you have. The previous owner just lost interest in thisproject. he had 2 other Capris as well and concentrated more in the lastfew yrs on the V8 swap car he had. Could be a 2400 or 2600 motor. Currently not running and the projects far from being finished. THE CAR IS OBVIOUSLY A RESTORATION Project car. this makes it affordable project for just about any buyerchecking it out right now :)How do you restore it ? Stock or restomod or maybe make it just a vintage road racing track car. Maybe clone it after a popular race car fromthe same era. All would look great and values. well hard to say. but eitherway. these cars values period are on the riSE and quickly being picked upby collectors all over the world. Seeing as this car has been sitting outside in the AZ weather day and nite. the cars interior has taken some beating. Most of the rust on the toppanels are surface only too. Under the car is very solid too. The desertheat has been very kind to this 40 yr old rare European Ford. RR 1/4 got some rust in Front of the rear wheel and the spare tire wellgot the worst of it from the best we can tell. MORE INFO:DRIVETRAIN: under the bonnet looks to be a later model 2600 Ford V6 motor connected to a manual 4 spd. Sitting on top of the engineis what looks to be like a Weber carb. Several things missing from under the hood as you can see in the picsbut alot of the major stuff is there too. Rearend looks to be stock and original. and the car still wearing itsoriginal style steel wheels. I wasnt too motivated on getting it running. becauseI know that some potential buyers out there are tempted to do another motorswap to a small block 5. 0 or similar (and wouldnt that be NICE )Most real buyers are just looking for rust free clean bodys. such as this car here. NO RUST AROUND the UPPER STRUT MOUNTSINTERIOR: check out the pics. but the interior really needs alot of work. But seems to be fairly complete still. It even comes with what looksto be a factory lower console as well. just loose in the car. Pretty much all the rubber seals are baked and dry rot. as is most of the plastic and vinyltoo. We have lots of pics. so check them all out below. Front seats are no longer bolted in and in there loose. It will take alot of parts and $ to make it original. and if you go race carwith it. then not as much of course. All the glass is good except the driverside door glass is MISSING. (not that hard to find either online. )EXTERIOR: the original color looks to have been a med blue metallic. afterthat maybe it went to tan. and then the current Green you see in the pics. All doneback in the 80s before base coat / clear coat. I honestly dont see any sign of previousbodywork or damage. but by now of course its going to need some body work. Butafter being all under the car (see pics) the AZ climate has been nice to the stock sheetmetal. Bumpers in pretty good shape as well. SUSPENSION: the suspension is basically all original and stock the best I can telland Im sure has some worn stuff there too. but dont see any areas of damage. Luckily pretty much all the stuff you need for these cars is available and their costare more affordable too. Its an older non restored car. its going to need some stufffixed and replaced here too once you get it road worthy . This car is Id guess to est be a 80% rust free Arizona carThe worst place I found rust. was the spare tire well in the trunk andin front of the RR tire. Again. please check out all the pics below. The car does come with a small box of misc extra parts AND I have an extra 4 spd trans I can sell for cheap if you want a spare. Check out ALL the pics below ----->it may take a full minute for them all to load if you have aslow connection. so be patient AND looks for the extra scrol bar on the right side. Az gets maybe 12" a yr of rain and Az very dry climate. more info AFTER the pics etc. There are 100+ large pics. Hope you like the detailed picsThere you have it. probably The BEST represented FORDs on Ebay. Shows you all the good as well as any bad. hope you appreciate them. We put a lot of time and effort in marketing our cars and it shows. People wait months for a car this solid to come up for saleand even if you have to pay shipping to your area. it still beatspaying a body shop to hopefully fix a rusty car for weeks on end. Having as much as the original steel on a restored car these daysspeaks volumes. Also. if you buy a car thats been "restored". who knows what sortof surprises are hidden under new paint or thick undercoating. People are flipping cars all the time when most of the jobs arefast. for a quick buck and quality suffers. Our auctions have NOTHING to hide . Restore a car like this yourself or locally and you knowexactly what you have in the end. Honestly. I think more sellers should post pics like we dobut buyer beware if they dont. Email us with ANY questions before you bid please If you treat yourself to buying one of our vehiclesyoull never buy a total rust bucket again from anyone !!Our Impeccable FEEDBACK speaks for itself. Doing restoration on this type of project is less laborintensive which means overall cost is less too !With less horrid surprises later on. Dont let auctions with little to no pics try to fool you. With other auctions. you really dont know what to expect until you take the car apart. While we go over our cars ALL OVERwith great pics to help making your decision easier.
