Sorry for going here!

Well you would be even more shocked to hear that they are the Fiats of the late 1950's.

Red Flags:
  • Bonnet Scoop
  • Racing Strips
From whatever that can be made from the pics the above two non standard items stand out.

Old vehicles with such wannabe add-ons point to the fact that lot of other original details are either not cared for or there has been some jugaad going on.

Price is affected negatively.

@ spitfire

she also has mustang logos on the front grille and on the sides, certainly some jugaad
However, i have checked the engine and interiors, most of the things seem to be original
the seller had initially shown me some low qlty pics and i was super excited about seeing a mustang
Only when i actually saw her for the first time and took her for a spin, i realized it was a capri 1.6....a sheep in a wolves body

But what made you develop interest for this car. Why not look at getting the Mustang itself, certainly a better car anyday.

Since, it is for daily use, not quite sure how this came into your mind

Wuld be great if you can shed some light

@thedreamcatcher

I have been looking for a mustang since a while now without any luck
The prices that people are expecting for the 60s-70s are also way crazy beyond imagination
The 80s mustangs are totally undesirable

The reason I want to settle for a capri is :

1. It is a RHD, so much easier for daily use

2. Price is far more reasonable

3. If i get hold of a v6 3L capri or even a 2 / 2.5 L that would be decent enough power, i guess

4. I am not a collector of vintage cars or anythin...its just that i want to buy a new car and none of the current models impress me
I dont intend or expect to make a profit out of my investment

The 60s - 70s models with long bonnet short boot are very impressive and you can feel the engine roaring when you step on the gas

Those are the reasons my friend
I am a dreamer.......looking forward to being a dreamcatcher

Hey this is the same RJ registered capri with Acrylic windscreen which was offered to me for 4 Lacs. Its a 1.6L engine car. The dash is also not original. In my opinion this should not cost more than 2.5 lacs

hi the fiat spider in the classified had an gypsy engine and not in good condition the guy mr R gopinath cousin of late s karivardhan exchanged it with another average VW karmanghia and of late to find a ford capri is quite difficult if there is any really good car the price also will be steep mr gopi was the previous owner of the spider

The Capri looks in fair condition and looks original. can't see and scoops or stripes. Based on cortina mechanicals, it is easy to repair.

3L at the most

Settle for anything between 2.75 to 3, as you may have to shell a bit to get it to a fairly decent, driveable, wanna-be-in-itable state

The colour looks amazing though. Would be best to retain the colour, or maybe change it to black

I would say sir that we cannot judge the car by just seeing a few pics of it. Here we can only see the cosmetic aspect of the car but not the Mechanical aspect.So depending on the total work to be done the budget would change accordingly.
