TOPIC: Want to buy 69-73 Capri

Want to buy 69-73 Capri 3 years 7 months ago #10860

Hello, I am looking to buy an early model Capri with the intent to drive and enjoy it. Specifically, I would like one preferably with the 2.0 Liter inline-4, manual transmission, and minimal to no rust. If it has a different engine or transmission, that is fine, so long as there is no rust. I live in Central California and am willing to drive/fly to collect the car. Please let me know if there is a car you don't have room/time for and want it to go to a good home.

Hi Jake, how did your search go at the time? I am thinking for an early Capri 2000. Is this forum alive?

In the last 3 years, I found 3 rusty, non-running cars. Chances are I'll never find one that will be to my liking

I don't mind a non-runner, I can restore anything, if you have any lead please send them along.
I found these below, but they don't want to deal with internationals. Even though I visit US regularly, I am based in The Netherlands.

I can't justify spending $7,000 on a car with rust. People have these cars and neglect them and expect someone else to pay for it. It's extortion. I'm based in the United States, so these cars are rare. I had one before I made this post 3 years ago. It was a mess but it was fun. I couldn't find parts to fix what was broken (gas gauge needed a fuel sending unit for starters). I have performance springs and shocks sitting in my garage that I can't use and no one wants to buy them. Quite literally new old stock Koni adjustable shocks and no one wants them, here in the USA or elsewhere.

True, too expensive for the condition it is, but they are so rare to get on sale, that asking prices may go high.
Same here, I have 2-3 sets of shocks and springs of different heights in my spare parts, but they are common to find at specialists like Burton Power in UK, so buyers just get them new.
