    Default Motorsport capri

    hello, I'm new to fep. How can you tell if a 1985 mercury motorsport capri is real or just a clone? I have a chance to buy one an just wanna know if I'm getting a good deal or not. Its in rough shape as it sits now but I have all the parts to bring it back. Been collecting capri parts for years for my projects. I have a 86 t top capri that I'm doing a restoration on at the moment but if this motorsport car is real its gonna be first to finish. Also does anybody know where I can find the decal kit for the grand prix cars? Thanks for reading, I'll post some pics of my projects as soon as I can

    Hopefully you can find the information you need here: https://motorsportcapri.com/

    As for the graphics, I don't believe anyone is reproducing right now, or at least not normally. I believe several of the owners may have options for you to help out either in dimensions to get new graphics produced or to use to help paint the graphics on the car. Good Luck and let us know how things go.

    Thanks for the reply. I went to that site but couldn't contact the guy running it through the site. Dont have a Facebook an dont want one lol. I will have pics of it Sunday. It is missing some parts like headlight an taillight covers, side ground effects an rear valance but the holes are there for the screws for both sets of covers. So I'm thinking its a real one.

    SWEET! Congrats on the picking this up. Have always been a fan and wanted one, but never been luckily enough to be able to do it.
