HERE WE HAVE A REALLY LOVELY CAPRI 2.8 INJECTION THAT HAS HAD A FULL CONVERSION TO A 2.9 COSWORTH HUGE AMOUNT OF BILLS IN FILE TOTALLING C £9000 IN LAST 2 YEARS IT ALSO HAD A REPAINT LAST YEAR WHICH IS VERY GOOD HOWEVER OUR TEAM HAS ATTENDED TO ITEMS MISSED AND IT NOW REALLY PRESENTS WELL IT DRIVES SO WELL AND HAS A HISTORY FILE BACK TO DAY ONE . A REAL BEAST OF A CAPRI AND SO FAST AND LOUD . SIMPLY FANTASTIC . THIS IS THE LAST OWNERS COMMENTS TO US WHEN WE PURCHASED .. Capri 2.8i Restomod, owned by me for two thoroughly enjoyable years, only for sale for a new challenge. I have covered less than a thousand miles in the two years as get my kicks from the fettling. The specification: Originally a 1982 2.8i, I purchased as a 2.9i 24v Cosworth with Sierra Cosworth T5 gearbox but she was in need of some love. So off to Top Boss for: Extensive wiring and ensuring correct loom for the car as it is now, new ECU, Edis module, and alternator Cooling fan upgrade - thermostatically controlled XR4x4 radiator with manual override. She's never overheated or even got particularly hot on me but would rather be safe than sorry Reconditioned Borg Warner T5 Gearbox and new Clutch. The T5 is the perfect gearbox for this conversion and the old Type 9 5 speed would be overpowered by the 2.9 Rocker cover gaskets. The bills are thousands, I'm too scared to look but they are all in the folder. After the fettling she makes 223bhp Braking: Front: Uprated Calipers and discs new EBS pads on Rear: New but standard 2.8i shoes and drums Upgraded larger diameter brake master cylinder from Tickover. Suspension On Tickover's advice I removed the tie bars and have poly bushed front and back with a good quality brand. Firm but comfortable and handles very well. Differential Helical Gear Limit Slip Differential Tyres Brand new (were put on 3 weeks ago) Toyo Proxes In Car Entertainment This is where I went a bit silly. I wanted to keep the correct stereo but MW/LW not ideal in 2021 so off it went to Argenta and came back with FM and bluetooth modules installed. This was at the expense of the cassette deck internals but inbluetooth connectedin coming from a 1982 stereo makes me smile every time, its the little things! Speakers upgraded to New Rockford Fosgate front and rear speakers but behind the original grills. No holes in the parcel shelf and nothing cut about. All installed by Top Boss. Bodywork The car had been painted before but it was not the original black. So I had her resprayed in the original panther black which is a metallic colour. The decals are in the same format as the original 2.8 Injection but she is badged up as a 2.9 Cosworth. Interior Is original and 30 years old. I have new front seat bolsters but never fitted as the current ones are by no means worn. All clocks and gauges are wired to work as they should. Underneath - all very solid and there hasn't been a corrosion mention on an mot for 15 years. No doubt helped by the Ziebart that the first owner must have opted for. History There is a folder as pictured full of paperwork with receipts dating back to 1995 and MOT's back to 2006. The Capri Handbooks are also present. THE ORIGINAL SERVICE BOOK IS ALSO IN THE FILE .... Adjustable Seats,Alloy Wheels,Metallic Paint,Power Assisted Steering,Radio/Cassette,Service History,Spoiler,Sports Seats,Sunroof,Tinted Glass
