19710000 Mercury Capri

NO RESERVE, IGHEST BIDDER WINS!!
THIS IS A 1971 CAPRI THAT HAD SAT IN A HEATED GARAGE FOR 41 YEARS AND I PICKED IT UP IN 2012 AND HAVE BEEN BUILDING IT SINCE
THIS WAS A FATHER SON PROJECT and NOW WE ARE MOVING ON TO SOMETHING ELSE
HERE IS A LIST OF THINGS WE DID AND TRUST ME IT IS ALL DONE RIGHT
I have pictures from start to finish for the whole build, lus all the paper work and documentation
Fire wall was moved back in the center so we could move the motor back and also drop the motor down as far as we could and we used a truck oil pan as well so we could get the balance right in the car. Very low center of gravity helps with the handling. Custom cross member, teering rack mount, teering shaft, otor mounts, ire wall, ransmission mounts, ustom transmission tunnel, ut out in the lower front air dam for more air to the radiator, xhaust cut outs, as tank moved, elded rear and front seams to smooth in the body, lso filled and smoothed where the marker lights went. As you can see lots of little and custom things to make this a truly unique muscle car and done right.
