Coupe Capri 306/Tremec $3500

Up for sale again, got two mortgages now and could use the $$.

its a 1979 Mustang Ghia coupe, factory stick trans/V8 car with the capri front sheetmetal, taillights added. What makes it unique is the rear quarter skins have been added from the capri (the "widebody" fenders) to make it the only notchback capri out there. Deep blue paint is a 10 at 10 feet, but has a few little rust bubbles, one chip on the hoodscoop, and light scratches here and there, but no dents, gouges, rust spots, holes or damage. It sits on 10 hole wheels, front tires fair and back tires are about bald, I haven't been motivated to replace them because anytime the car is running its rolling on an extra pair of 10 hole wheels with ET streets that can be included in the price for the right offer.

Running Gear-

Unverified (The previous owner didn't build the motor and I haven't torn it down) 306, HO firing order, what sounds/runs like an E303 cam, holds great oil pressure, runs cool, this motor went 13.20's this summer on the ET Streets at BBR. Runs perfectly, the rings are showing some age as the last 300 foot at BBR it smoked some at 5k+ RPM.
Iron E7 heads with stock rockers & FMS valve covers
Polished Victor Jr
Holley 670 street avenger, K&N filter with top element
MSD 6AL, Mallory unilite Mech advance billet dizzy and Mallory box-type coil
Short tube equal length headers, 2.5 O/R H-pipe, Dynomax turbo muffs and tailpipes
Late model "mini" starter
Tremec trans, pretty sure its an older TKO, short shifter and a BIG clutch
8.8 rear with 3.73 gears, Southside lowers
FMS blue springs
drilled rotors, late model fox V8 spindles and brakes

Power Adder-

NOS 125 plate kit with purge, bottle heater, microswitch WOT activated

Interior-
Complete minus rear package shelf & rear seatbelts, grey/black interior conversion from a 87-93 4 cylinder LX (still has 85 MPH speedo, not hooked up but I have the cable) Grey SN95 manual cloth seats
Autometer gauge cage with oil/temp in center vent, monster tach with shift light, toggles for ignition on/nitrous arm. Crank windows & manual locks
[This car weighs NOTHING]

I have a box of parts that goes with it, speedo cable to hook it back up, Haynes tech manual, a good battery tray (currently the battery is secure but bungeed in the front, I was going to do a battery relocate) Full set of door weatherstripping, some other odds and ends. The HVAC is still in there but not hooked up, so no heat at the moment, coolant lines run to the heater core and its all under the dash, the knobs just don't do anything. Also brake MC feels spongy, I have a near-new one that will be swapped on or included.



Price - $3500

possible trades + cash, or t-top car.

well sorry. I just read it was originally a v8 car. I can't have that because of my insurance. How did you do the back fenders if you don't mind me asking?

The back fenders were grafted on right below the beltline, I didn't do the surgery, but I was suprised when I picked the car up it was so well done. I passed on it several times till I saw it in person. I guess since the rest of the cdimensins between the capri and mustang are the same, its just as simple as a rear fender replacement on a mustang.

Kentucky lets you register your car as a Hot Rod, Antique/Historic vehicle, and several other options. The plates cost a little more, and its not spoken, but its assumed you'll keep the miles under 6k per year. My Ky State Farm insurance policy covered my 86 GT as well as my 2 DD's and my house, it was $80 a month for liability on that car, and when I transferred over the coupe and dropped my 86 GT, it went down to $4 a month to have the coupe capri on my policy.

When I bought the car in Indiana I trailered it because of an electrical issue, turned out to be just a bad alternator, I would drive it anywhere. The battery is hit or miss, now the weather is nice its fine but I would replace it.

TONS of high res pics from last year taken by key, the guy I bought it from. Have changed a few things around (seats, console, shifter, intake, air cleaner, carb, wheels) but you get the idea as far as structurally sound.

Took some all-over pics in the usual trouble spots, floorpans look to be all-original and rust-free, the only spots are places where undercoating has flaked off and there is surface rust. NO RUST HOLES ANYWHERE!!! Amazing for a '79 notch. Front frame rails look immaculate.

Went to a guy just outside of St. Louis, he's fixed alot of the little things, got the HVAC working, put welds back on it, and driving it. That was a good little car, I just needed new windows in my house more than it.
