Capri Perana parts wanted

Post by V8 fan » Tue 01 Nov 2016, 13:40

Hi there all

I've recently obtained a genuine '71 Capri Perana which need a little bit of work to bring it back to original form.

I'm after the following spares if anybody can assist or show me in the right direction:

1) Original centre console which I belief to be the same as the 3-litre version

2) Original dash insert (wooden panel lookalike)

3) Original speedometer cluster with all guages

4) All badges - V8, XL and PERANA

5) The original steering with Perana logo insert if possible - perhaps someone knows where else to look for a similar style and size of steering

6) The original rectangular spot lights to go in front of the grille

7) A set of "POWER BY FORD" tappet covers

Lastly, I'm looking for a set of 15" MINILITE rims to fit the Capri hubs - I think they were 108 PCD (will appreciate if anybody can confirm this to be correct)

Will appreciate any assistance :D

4) All badges - V8, XL and PERANA.

V8 is from a Rover available on ebay.co.uk
XL sometimes available on ebay.co.uk or ebay.de , search regularly
Perana - I can tell you what font to use if you want to make inserts. The casting is standard Ford.


5) The original steering with Perana logo insert if possible - perhaps someone knows where else to look for a similar style and size of steering

Wayne Stockman can make you a complete replica steering wheel.


6) The original rectangular spot lights to go in front of the grille

Ebay.co.uk or ebay.de again

Thanks John!

I've been in touch with both Paul (paulusvrotius) and Wayne in connection with the steering wheel and badges.

Paul might be able to sort me out with the V8 badges which are the same as the ones on the Rover SD1. I've also found the PERANA side badges but someone jumped me to it.

There's also a bloke on Gumtree advertising a set of spots - however, I think I might be able to get them cheaper than R1000 :?:

I'm also after a set of wing mirrors as well as the reverse lights (also a set on Gumtree but will first check up on the price)

Thanks for the heads-up ;)

108PCD and 63mm spigot diameter. Depending on width, usually about +20mm offset. Are you looking for the original Minilites? Otherwise, there are a few options for modern replica's, made from aluminium though. Gunter from G&A Promotions sold/sells 15x8's and also Autoquip had some A-line replica's, 15x7.5J. Both 0mm offset. They should just about squeeze into the std arch, depending on tyre size. Arnold Lambert (Lambert racing) also had some at one stage.

I have some left over Capri parts if you want. I am hoping for someone to just come collect and take away. Window glass all round (except windscreen), a spare grill (cut-outs for spotlights), head light surround, some instrument binnacle parts (most gauges are dead) and I think one of those wood instrument panels. Will have some wear and tear on it. Also a set of those anti-tramp rods for the rear.

I stuck it all away on a shelf back then, will have to go see what exactly is there. Let me know.

Hey there KSF

No worries mate - I'll take the lot if you're parting with it. Thanks :D

At the moment, I have some A-line 15 inch wheels on - unfortunately, I cannot yet remove any as theirs a special key needed to remove the last wheel nut on all of them. Haven't yet seen one of these - hopefully I can get them removed at TSW or somewhere when I get home again in December.

Can then confirm the size and offset - just want to meanwhile sort a couple of options out as I will definitely change over to original Minilites and sell the current wheels on car. Want to have both my Can-Am and Perana's wheels to be the same ;)

Another thing to point out is that car is now fitted with WILLWOOD disc brakes all-round - very good quality and a BIG improvement on the standard set-up.....

Here's a photo of the rear disc and rim/tyre - photo not so clear though :(

This is the size of MINILITE on my Can-Am:

Will confirm the PCD and spigot when back at home again
