Darren's 2.0S MKIII Capri
The NEC Classic Motor Show in November 2015 was the 'first sighting' of this totally restored 2.0S MKIII Capri.
This a total re-build of a 1984  2.0S Capri using parts from many different donor Capri's.

This vehicle re-cycling at it's best - Darren's Carbon Footprint is so low that he is actually in 'credit' !

The body shell was recently re-sprayed in a gorgeous photogenic Ford 'Champagne Gold' colour by a body-shop right next door to where Darren works. Re-building the engine has been a very steep, but very interesting learning-curve for Darren.
After owning his trademark 'Black 3.0S MKII Capri' for many years Darren was itching to get stuck into a major project.
In early September 2015 - with help from local Capri Club members - the engine and gearbox were installed. The engine itself is an eclectic mix of parts old and new (the 'bottom-end' was originally in my (Alan) 2.0S ).

A 'new' interior was bought from Preston. Many parts were supplied by Martin at Capri Gear (Lincoln) and many other parts were bought off ebay and also from local Capri Club members.

All the hard work and sleepless nights have come together to create what is effect a virtually  'new' Capri. A massive thank you to all the Mansfield Notts Capri Club members who helped Darren on this huge project!

Darren's Capri also features :
Poly-bushed suspension; uprated 2.8i vented discs; new radiator; new interior; refurbished alloy wheels.
