OVERVIEW

1974 Mercury Capri

  • DESCRIPTIONEuropean styling with American muscle. People find it unique, i guess the reason is most do not know what it is. It's a hoot parking next to my brothers beautiful 66 chevelle ss & the majority are scoping out my ride. It drives him crazy! Drove it for awhile with the fairly quick 2.8 6cyl. but got tired of adjusting the solid lifters. So one day i pulled it in the garage and pulled out all the guts. Custom built the 302, made it a nice streeter. 10:5:1 forged pistons, Trick flow heads, MSD, Demon carb you know all the goodies. C-4 trans with stahl converter, shift kit topped with a B&M Starshifter. 9" rear with 4:11's, have since gone to 3:55 posi unit, much better match. Still grabs hard but a bit more cruising minded on the top end. Full length headers with Flowmaster race mufflers, sounds fantastic & the Rack n Pinon handles superb. Also added new buckets, stereo & a few other touches. Car is more Orange looking but paint is actually called Sebring Red. Does have a reddish cast to it at around dusk. Listed as finished but might do a few other things . May add a few hood louvers or scoop, not set on it yet though. Definite love for this car. Pop in some Carlos & it's Miles of Smiles!
