A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing:

1973 Ford Capri V8

Please wait a few moments while our high-resolution photos load.

Relatively unknown stateside, Ford's 1st generation Capri, badged as a Mercury in the US, is held in high regard in the Fatherland, were it was built.

In its most powerful form, as the RS2600, the Capri could give the BMW 3.0CSL Batmobiles and Porsche 911RS supercars a run for the money on the race track. All of these cars are now selling for silly money. Yet, the 1973 Capri presented here is quite a bit more powerful than a 2.6RS! A "sleeper" in the true meaning of the term, it is powered by a professionally installed 5.7-liter V8 power plant that fits neatly in the car's engine bay. This Capri still carries its factory original paint and interior, and runs like a scalded cat. Rare 1970s ENKEI alloy wheels are currently mounted; a set of vintage slot mags is included, too, and all 8 wheels have new tires installed.

More to come . . .
