I have a chance to pic up a 82 capri for free. i really just want the ponies but he said if i buy those a can take the car free. Im not really interested in the carbed cars so i dont kno what id do with it. Would it be worth while to get running and sell it or is it bound for the scrap yard? heres some pics:
from the pics it looks fairly solid, havent seen it up close tho. he says it has 4.10s a fairbanks(?) 4spd and edelbrock carb and intake. it supposedly ran and drove before he parked it, so im guessing a new batt, change fluids and a carb rebuild will get it moving again.
car looks solid. why not get it running an sell it. capris keep value better then mustangs cuz there rare. i sold my 82 rs for $2800 an it was in worse shape then the lx i bought an have now for half the price
I've never gotten a free fox but I've got a free 96 sitting in the pasture. There's the 90's 5 lug swap.
I once bought a 93 coupe for 85$, beat to hell but the interior was immaculate, I stuck the interior (except i got the rear seat back and hatch trim pieces from an 89 lx) into a 86 hatch I bought for a few hundred, along with a motor from a 200$ car and a free T5 into it and sold if for a nice plump PROFIT!
take what you need and sell it or pass the favor on to someone else.you got it for free,why not take what you need and instead of letting a car go to a crusher just give it to someone else.hell i'll even take it.
like i said i havent seen it up close yet, so i dont kno what its really like. it theres no major rot or structural damage i wouldnt junk it. i really just want the ponies. i also found out it doesnt have a title, is it going to be a pain in the a** to get one? cuz if it is ill just take the wheels and forget about it.
