    After some (likely minor) mechanical repairs, a detailing, maybe a compounding job on the paint, and (this is the big one) ditching the K-Mart wheel covers in favor of something like a set of the repro TRX's, this would be a very nice ride.

    Aw, it's missing one! "Missing one hubcab on passenger front"

    That's really a good, honest sounding ad and looks to be a GREAT car for the money if the story is HALF true!

    I laughed at the comment "amazing shag carpet"

    If this one was in Colorado, it would be a done deal. That would just leave me to find a tan vert and coupe. While the Capri is not an 8Q, it is close enough to count.

    That's a lot of rare hard to find Capri parts in nice condition! I sure hope someone here buys it and fixes before someone else realizes what it is and parts it out!!
