$500 Capri (with 4-eye Mustang nose and tail) and it already sports a 2.3T/T5 swap.

I can't. I won't. I'd rather have a V8. I need a van. The Portland swap meet starts tomorrow and I can't blow my random car stuff fund on this.

But I encourage the posting of random awesome CL finds from this part of the world!

It's a good thing the filth streaks make it look a bit more like depression on wheels than it otherwise would... Helps with the staying away.

I'd rather have it as a Capri...and without those awful rubber cast steel wheels.

'83 was the first year for the bubble back hatch. I always thought that they were better looking than the Mustang. One was also my first car.

Good lord...My 93 LX convertible had those exact crappy wheels.

I had those wheels on my '77 Capri too!

Anyone willing to buy this, fix it, and drive it to Wisconsin for a case of beer plus the asking price?

Nice car! My friend had one and the rubber hose that drains the sunroof ditch disconnected sometime around 1989. The A pillar acted as drainage. Got crunchy, then unsafe.

Poke around or press here and there before buying.

For some confounded reason I have a serious itch for a Capri (even though I've had dozens of fox chassis cars) so I can drop in a 5.0/T5 and then do a wicked suspension setup on it. This isn't really what I need (no Capri nose, tail, or hatch, has a hole in the roof), but damned if I don't want it anyway!
