About This Project

This vehicle is being built to match the car my wife and I dated in, took on our honeymoon and had for the first four years of our marriage. Being built from combining two excellent cars, one for the body and one for everything else.

Over the past three years, we have been building this fabulous car. It is so hard to find these cars as rust free survivors. A completely rust-free Arizona shell was combined with a 46K mile California survivor to complete this build.

This car is being repainted to match the custom paint we had when my six-month-old Capri was repainted in this custom color combination of 1970 Chevrolet Ontario Orange Metallic and 1972 Cadillac Gold Metallic.

Completely new correct interior in process in light tan vinyl. Rebuilt low mile 2.8 Liter V-6, four speed transmission and completely rebuilt suspension. Factory air conditioning, original radio and clock.
