V6 beater

Hi All well my new capri turned up today, and this ones just going to get what ever is needed to get it back on the road. i want to have some fun with this one. anyway here it is, is a bold blue 71 v6 manual, that is now red. has some rust and needs a tidy up. it still has the factory 4speed but it has a facelift worked motor, with lumpy cam and four barrel manifold. Its missing a cpuple of bits like headlight surrounds, the plates in front of the radiator and the 3 bars that go from the box to the shifter. if anybody has the three bars that they want to get rid off let me now. i started to sort out a few items like the wiring and the carb as the wiring was shocking and the carb is missing a few pieces. hope to have on the road soon. I have to give a big thanks to Tim and Mick for their help pushing it into the shed. Cheers O.

    You got to love it "Ridgeback", "Richard" and a glass of "Red", How did you finish up at the MAD Day, I had a good run back to Sydney Cruised past the Catho Pub to check it out for next Month. Not a drop of rain on the way home a bit better than the run up in the Fog, Keep us posted on more events happening up your way, Good to see some interesting cars at a different venue, Thanks for the invite - Bruce

    well its been a few days, been busy at work, and im flying to Melbourne early tomorrow morning, i give you a call jr about Wednesday, i had a knocking noise in the front end, it turned out to be a torn strut top. i ordered a set of eccentric sturt tops of smacka and they turned up in 3 days( great bloke), so there fitted, but as i was fitting them i found the strut insert was loose. i fixed it and its all good now, so ive fitted some race seats, and a momo sterriong wheel along with some better gauges. the box is giving me the sh!ts and so are the brakes, so im goping to have to fit some 4 pot brakes, coil overs, alloy hubs and the t5 in the next few weeks when work permits. Hope to see you all on the road soon. O
