Classic Ford - - HOMEBUILT HERO -

Re­build­ing a Mk1 Capri with so many modern ex­tras is no mean feat. Luck­ily, Ian had a huge amount of knowl­edge, skills and friends to help him pull it off.

With so many ex­tra electrics, the re­wire was a hugely-in­volved job. Note sound-dead­en­ing.

While all this was go­ing on, Ian had to re­build the Cosworth 24-valve en­gine, too.

The many, many up­grades in­clude Mon­deo cal­lipers grip­ping Cosworth discs us­ing a kit from Caprisport.

Start­ing with a shell meant Ian was able to make his own mark on the car — once it had been re­paired.
