    The bailey bros capri.

    Yes Johny it was the bailey brothers from Gravesend that built it. It was a top car at the time with the best of everything on it. They was very friendly with the skinner brothers who are well known for drag racing with their little fiat 126's (Chevy powered). Chris with the red 126 was also known for his black mk 1 granada 'big n nasty' all the boys were regularly at the detling show n go and was part of the 'imperial roadsters' club. They are still very much in the scene with one of the bailey brothers building a mk 1 zephyr. What i must say is with all those body mods and fabrication on the capri, it certainly has survived the test of time, a credit to the the pair of them and all their effort! Gary.

    10-12k is probably more realistic...and I really like it, always did. The rebuild looks fantastic, I hope he gets the price but form that much you can get a decent Mustang fastback.....not brilliant or in this condition but even so it's a mustang and this is a capri

    Now about this Renault Scenic with the nodding dog for 10 grand. What breed of dog are we actually talking about.

    This car has had a few ride hight changes over the years--some time after when it first came out and after the SM feature the car was raised alot more alround (High rider hight) then some time later in its life was lowered again to how it is now.
    I liked this car so much as a teen i made a model based on it-out of a Esci MK2 Escort-ive still got it in a box part way through a re-build i had started many many years ago.

    PS...This capri used to run at North Weald cant remember the times but it was quick.

    Not that keen on the notion of slagging a car for sale myself. Originally it was on e-bay, now on our classifieds.
    So we are looking at a 20k car. Would the negative comments be so prevalent if it was something other than a Mk1 Capri?
    If the engine was built by ICE and has the dyno output we are talking serious dosh. The chrome Jag rear appears to be good, again serious dosh. Body and interior (explained damage excepted) looks to be good.
    If the spec is as good as the ad suggests, then to the right buyer it is worth every penny. Even ignoring its status as a piece of British hot rod history. If It wasn't, this thread wouldn't even have started.
