1986 ASC McLaren Capri hatchback 5 speed 5 lug $2000
Hi, I've had a 86 ASC Capri for a couple years that I've been trying to get around to restoring. I wanted to build it into what I want, but my time is more valuable now to me than money so I've decided to just buy the 5.0 that I want already finished. So the Capri must go sadly.
Bought it from down south and had it trucked up two years ago. The car runs and drives, I drove it a few hundred miles last year. Last summer I put a reman World Class T-5 in it. The car has new valve seals and an updated 87-93 upper and lower GT intake. The motor still smokes though, could be from sitting for years before I owned it. I bought it from a guy who had no idea what it was, for 5 years he had it sitting in storage to refurbish it at some point. The rings may reseat with drive time. The engine runs strong, has full BBK headers/off road exhaust, with Flowmasters. 3:73 gears, aluminum driveshaft, subframe connectors. Brand new KYB struts and shocks.
Just a few weeks ago I converted the front end to SN-95 spindles with new pads rotors hoses. I have the axles and drums for the 5 lug conversion on the rear, haven't been able to get the time for install yet.
I do have pictures of the car. The body and interior are fair. It's missing all the original ground effects. The interior is original but worn. The car basically is a project car with great bones. Very minimal surface rust, a spot by the right quarter window and a little near the edge of the bumper cover. Underneath the car is in great shape.
The car was a full option ASC, white with orange stripe. The original wheels were gray I believe, but missing as well. I have 96 GT 16" wheels that go with the car now. The dash plaque and ASC steering horn cover are intact. The original ASC spoiler remains too. The car is number: 008.
