This is a page about my Ford Capri....
The car was bought from a guy in
Kristiansand, Norway back in 1989. Originally it is a '77 mkII 2.0S V6 (90 HP
DIN) which had rolled ca. 210.000 km.
Within the last six months it had been stolen twice. And it wasn't much to look at, with a lot of rust...... But the mechanical condition was quite good.
The car was stripped, and a whole lot of new parts were bought from different stores in England and Norway. In august 1992, after hundreds of hours of work and a repaint, it was ready for the road . Now as a Capri Turbo look-a-like.
After this the car was ready for a Capri-meeting
at Gol, Norway. In the summer of 1995 a friend of mine and I used the car
for an 11-days holiday through 10 different countries in Europe. Denmark, Germany,
Austria, Italy, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Luxemburg, France, Belgium and the
Netherlands were visited. We drove more than 4.500 km.
After several kilometers and attending at different meetings in Norway and Denmark, I've found it boring with only 90 HP. In 1996 a donation-car, a '82 2.8 injection, was bought from Switzerland.
The electrical system, the suspension, the engine and the complete driveline was changed.
But something went wrong..... The engine hadn't any power at all. I guessed it was just a little problem with the injection, but I gave up the project. Since then the car has been stored outside...... Sad, but true.
In september 2002, the problem with the injection was figured out. Two fuel pipes had been swapped during the installation. So now the engine is running fine. But there are still "some" work to do....
