Who fitted that sunroof ?

Stunning car 👍😀

Great looking colour for your Capri. Nice job. I bet you just love driving that about attracting lots of attention. 👍

Shame they never bothered to fit those stripes in the correct place if your gonna restore a car to the original look at least look at some pictures for reference.

Wild colours of the 70s eh folks. I had a bright yellow one and a lovely deep red one both mk3 V6 manuals. Loved em. Can't afford one now dam.

I had this model in this colour car and sold it !! Lovely motor

It's lovely!

Who fitted those stripes 😂😂😂😂 or is it the bumpers. Still a beauty tho

Totally agree on colour for its age
