Wonderful Blue Capri, show car or driver, (ROAD TRIP CAR) by 2nd owner 1973 , I am selling this for the owner who does not have computer skills, When he brought the CAPRI over to my house to photograph, it is the wonderful example of a redone, modified car,
I was amazed at the car, It is so clean, you can eat off the engine.. . Probable the best kept original and modified car I have ever seen. It paint is crisp and bright, (camera does not capture the color) the white on the top, seats, rear tire package is white and not stained or tarnished. All of the chrome is 95 to 98% with only one tiny ding in mid of the front bumper. Bumperettes are excellent rubber, grill perfect, front spoiler or air damn is added and looks perfect. Rear lights have been changed because original were degraded. Everything works on the car lights, horn, etc. Full Owner's Manuals, advertising brochures, etc, Factory maintenance manual goes with car about 1.5 inches thick, cost $35.00 in 1980. Pick it up in Scranton and drive it to Florida, California etc. will go anywhere.A wonderful summer road trip use the CB to talk to the truckers and others in route, what a blast. This CAPRI looks and drives like a NEW CAR. Why have a common Mustang or Chevy when you can get this Capri, you will not see another.
Wait till you read the additions that work perfect... all of these interior additions were around 1980 and have only 1500 miles on the car since their installation .1. power antenna, 2. Power windows, 3. power trunk lid, 4.interior trunk lights 5. interior trunk trim including, first aid kit, tool kit. 6. Realistic CB Radio. 7. ZT Dynamic Travel computer which tell mileage, battery voltage, outside temperature, also works a cruise control. and some other functions (has a manual) 8. New 1980 Kenwood Stereo radio, with a cassette player, with rear speakers in shelf behind rear seats and in front doors.
The running gear and engine are maintained but not traveled on, since the older build up of 1500 to 2000 miles ago. Engine starts and runs fine (will probably need a tune up sometime), Has new rack and pinion steering put in 5 years ago with 200 miles on it. Tires are up, lots of tred, good pressure, no sign of dry rot probably installed 1990.
THIS CAR IS KEPT in the owners garage and is climate controlled (heated in winter and in the mountains of PA, no humidity) The owner is very detail orientated. Garage is perfect. like the car.
Car has been in numerous auto shows and has won awards in modified class (ACCA) (award goes with the car) , This car is a head turner wherever it goes, It is almost perfect and get great mileage as well.
RETURN THE CAPRI to original. The Continental Kit, would come right off, and the bumper bolts back on. The console in the inside can be removed but you would loose some goodies. The trunks has been redone in carpeting with a first aid box, that would have to go back to cheap original stuff.Owner may or may not have the original tail lights way in the attic but he can't be sure, he remembers them as not in the best of shape, whatever is there in the attic, you get. The electric windows would probably have to stay.
IT IS sure to bring a value to people for years to come. a great investment
Call the owner at (Fred) at 570 842 8847 he will give you more info. However, any bidding goes through Ebay. I was adverse to listing this so low priced without a reserve...but he wanted it..He is wanting this car to go to the right person. A box of original parts go with it.
Thanks for looking

It's taken four years of study, but the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has finally closed the books on its investigation into rollaway accusations surrounding 1.56-million Ford SUV models.
The probe, which centered on the 2002-2005 Ford Explorer, 2002-2005 Mercury Mountaineer and 2003-2005 Lincoln Aviator, ends without the federal agency calling for a recall. According to The Detroit News, the investigation was closed due to a "low number of complaints" - NHTSA documented 180 such complaints that resulted in 14 crashes and six minor injuries, but the number of incidents have been slowing. The suspected defect rate for the trucks' automatic transmissions was found to be 4.4 per 100,000 units, and the brake-shift interlock mechanism failure rate was judged to be even lower at 3.4 per 100k.
You read the title right, we're talking about the Mercury Beaver XR-7. No, Mercury never officially built a car called the beaver. This is the brainchild of upstate New Yorker Chip Beam, who owns and operates Beaver Energy, LLC. It runs on gases created by wood pellets fermented in a 2,400-degree furnace and fed to a supercharged Ford 4.6-liter V8.
By all accounts, it gets down the road just fine, and has pretty close to full power. The best part is, you can grow the fuel yourself and avoid patronizing big oil, if that's your thing. The only drawback that we can see to the Mercury Beaver XR-7 is the PVC pipe jungle occupying the space that would be the trunk under normal circumstances.
Still, if you're willing to smell like a mountain man and look like a bad Back to the Future knockoff, this ride is right up your alley. Click past the jump to see Translogic's take on this modified Merc.
The process of shutting down the Mercury is complete. Ford officially made the decision to close its mid-level brand in June of 2010. In the months that followed, Ford offered its dealers money to stop selling the cars, with production shutting down in September. The last Mercury, a Mariner, rolled off the assembly line in the beginning of October and former spokesperson Jill Wagner said her good-byes to both the car and her job. Now the last piece of the brand has come down as dealers are removing any and all Mercury signage from their lots.
