    Default 1979 Mercury Capri

    I am looking for a 1979 Mercury Capri. My first car was a 5.0L automatic with the red ghia interior and white exterior. I am looking for the same thing or close to it.

    I'm a little far, but I have a '79 Capri I might be willing to sell. Medium Chestnut, 2.3L auto. Original, mostly untouched survivor. Edgewood, MD, USA.

    There is a '79 project for sale on CL in Battle Creek MI. It's 5.0 RS. I was in touch with the guy a while back. It needs floors and a few other things.

    I run an ad on used Victoria , the add says Fox body parts wanted , in the past , scrape metal yards have phoned me about cars they would be crushing for scrape metal . I have even had emails and phone calls from Alberta. I was unaware of this forum when those cars were crushed . foureyed81 do you also have an ad for fox body parts wanted . From the ad i run on Used Victoria there are now two project cars for sale . But they are Mustangs not what you are looking for and sound like not running well enough to drive them back to Calgary . I have asked them both to post on this forum or on used Victoria and i would repost on this forum . Every one where ever you are, post ads asking for parts wanted , you would be surprised what comes up as not every one wants to post what they have for sale .

    Yep, that's the one. He said it needed floors and a hood. Can't remember what else. It's been for sale for close to a year. He started at $3500.00 I have 2 hoods for it and a replacement floor section. That's how things got started.
