    Default High roller 86 capri

    For anyone getting a BIG tax return there is a nice 86 restomod for sale at Streetside Classics in Atlanta for $50000.
    My $10k 83 is headed in this direction but hoping it doesnít take another $40k to get there! Nice car though.

    Not sure why 427 markings all over a 396 car since similar 396 emblems are available. Digger Don Dixon was a respected builder here in Atlanta but he has been retired for at least 5 years.

    Wow, that resembles a Capri that Ken Ingram built back in the early 90s. He did most of the same changes, however it was blue.

    It's a nice looking Capri, but NOT $50K nice IMHO. Just too many little things that aren't finished or are not finished well IMHO to bring top dollar. Not that top dollar is anywhere $50K, but still.

    No body side molding between the wheels. Might be their opinion that it looks good, but again looks unfinished to me.

    Mustang tail lights on the Capri, just not working again IMHO.

    The early 4 eye rear wing and flat hatch . . . Not sure, but opinions will vary.

    Aero quarter glass, again not my taste, but opinions will vary.

    What's with the passenger shock access cover laying on the floor??? Couldn't take 10 seconds to at least set it in place or install properly before taking pictures.

    The map pocket being stretched out, again just not $50K looking.

    What is going on with the steering column cover against the instrument cluster?? Maybe its the angle of the photo, but doesn't look right.

    Steering wheel appears to be 94+ and just doesn't fit the styling of the rest of the interior, especially with whatever that emblem is that was stuck on the air bag.

    What is with all the added interior lights in the lower door panel and in the rear quarter panels?

    Engine compartment looks nice. Appears to be a really clean and in good shape. Just not seeing $50K worth of parts nor work to justify the price. Not really trying to sound so negative. Must be a Monday!

    I see that as a cobbled mess. I'm sure someone, somewhere will love it and be crazy enough to cough up a huge chunk of change for it, but theres no way I personally see nearly 50k sitting there. It looks like I pulled all my extra Capri parts out and threw them all at a body and called it custom.

    Probably 5000 not 50000, seems like a typo.

    People are still asking insane prices, but I don't think they are selling. I've seen 93 Cobras listed for 80K
    I push my fingers into my eyes......

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Update - 2021 - Looking to buy 81 Mustang, 82/85/86 Mustang GT, and 79 - 86 Capri (No Sunroof). Not looking for all original/show cars or convertibles - I will be modifying. Would be nice if both were - Black Interior, PW, PL, AC, No - or very little rust. Motor/Trans/Axle not important. Options negotiable with price.

    This is the kind of build that a you better LOVE if you buy it, as in forever.
    Resale is really not going to happen (for anywhere near that kind of money)
    when there is that much "mis-maushed" together AND very little left stock
    (while elminating a lot of the original Capri uniqueness).
    86 Capri, 5.0, 5Spd, A9L QH/BE, 47 lb Inj PMAS 3" MAF, Single T44 Turbo, Front Mount IC, TW170,
    Stock Cam, Explr Intake/TB, 1.7 Rockers, CF dual friction clutch, 3" DP, 2.5" full Exh, 3.27, 11.932 @ 115.78
    84 LTD, 331-10:1, TW170/Exprl Intake, 47 lbs inj/80 mm LMAF, Full Duals, Quarterhorse, Vortech 7PSI, Lentech AOD, 5 lug Mk VII brakes/rear, Eibach Sway bars, Cobra HB (dads ride, but I fix it )
