For Sale: 1986 Mercury Capri in Lithia Springs, Georgia

Vehicle Description

This 1986 Mercury Capri Restomod has the look of a sinister power machine. And the enhanced fuel-injected V8, upgraded suspension, and four-wheel disc brakes are all part of a professional build with the moves to back up its aggressive style. So if you love intimidation, power, and true distinction, you need this Mercury.

Those who have been in the Fox body Mustang world should know the name Dugan Racing. They built a reputation for creating some terrific Mustang parts for both performance and style. So when you see a car from that family, you know it's going to have both. The distinction starts with the body. We don't see as many of the Mercury Capris around anymore, and this is from the rare final year. This celebrates the best of the Carpi with the RS-style front facia and awesome heat extractor hood. The rear spoiler and dark paint even make this look like the Black Magic car. But the connection of the Mustang is instantly recognized by the way the bubble-back hatch was replaced with the pony car's fastback. And this even has the Mustang SVO rear panel. Plus, the bright exhaust tips, custom rear chrome grille, chrome headlight bezels, and BBS wheels give this the right custom touches to really let people know it's a unique build.

The interior is inviting with leather upholstery, plush carpeting, a taut headliner, and a smooth dash. This custom is built for comfortable cruising. So you have nice features like power steering, an upgraded steering wheel, power locks, and power windows. There are even provisions for R134a air conditioning (it will need servicing to blow cold again.) You'll even appreciate the little details like the working trunk lights and a privacy screen over the rear hatch.

The story that were told on the motor is the kind you absolutely want in your coupe. This is said to be a powerhouse from Don Dixon's High-Performance engines and that Dugan Racing had it for a customer who passed away before it could be installed in his project. So it became part of this in-house build. The consignor claims this is a 351 cubic-inch V8 enlarged to 396ci total. The info includes it has been enhanced and fortified with Twisted Wedge Heads, an Explorer intake, 81mm Pro M mass air meter, 30 lbs injectors, a Lunati solid roller cam, roller rockers, and an MSD ignition. It fires up with a terrific tune out of the X-pipe dual exhaust. It's the kind of car you want to take out on the streets. That's why you have a fully enhanced suspension with upgraded springs, sway bars, control arms, subframe connectors, caster camber plates, and Koni adjustable shocks. The transmission is a four-speed automatic with a 2800 stall to keep you in the optimal powerband, and it feeds into an 8.8 rear that's said to have an Auburn differential for confident take-offs. And the surefooted feeling continues with the Cobra four-wheel power disc brakes package and sport tires on 17-inch BBS wheels.

This is the professional build that's distinctive for its storied history and Capri rarity. But what you'll love the best is the pure performance feeling. So don't miss this Mercury. Call today!!!
