It's not a mustang but the Capri is practically a cult following to some people and I found this wasting away in someone's garage. It was poorly swapped to a 302 with hydraulic flat tappet and 5 speed trans and still sporting the 7.5 rear end. I got it for a steal and brought it home. Big plans for this car. took me a few trips for parts but got it running in 2 days. I have more pictures, hope you all enjoy

Thank you! it's got a tad bit of roof rot around the sunroof and the lower quarters need replaced. over all its surface rust underneath and I plan to seal it back up tight. keeping the 4 eyes look and respraying the stock paint code. Plan on building the engine to a 306 pushing 350 horse with a flat tappet. lots of sourcing for other parts to make a nice street fighter.
