Is that a similar carb setup to the XR6 Interceptor?
Last time I saw one was in the early 80's when a friend of mine traded his 3000L Capri for one and was never that happy with it. He worked for Ford in Queenstown and had all the Ford Muscle accessories on his Capri and it was way faster than my standard 3000L. :D

Paul, the carbs are the same as used on the Interceptor, I think the XPack Capri also came with them as standard.

Hi Kris,

Here in the UK the X pack Capri was basicaly a wide arch body kit as far as I'm aware. Not sure about any engine mods so if you have any info on these it would be very interesting to know.

Hi Kris, thanks for the specs on the Xpack Capri.

Was this a British, German or ZA inspired option?

Interior bits looking good there, I believe the headlining is a bit of a bugger to get in.
Havn't done mine yet, but will be after paint.

Interested to see how you get on with it, and any tips you might have. :D

cheers

Paul
