For Sale: 1986 Mercury Capri in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

This 1986 Mercury Capri is pure sports car distinction. It has a cool RS-style body, a sharp-looking two-tone, a driver-focused interior, and a fuel-injected 5.0 motor under the hood. It's the kind of coupe for those who want to drive something powerful and be memorable doing it.

This Capri has plenty of attitude. The bright Copper Metallic paint has a deep red-like tone and a nice gloss. The dark tone goes well with all the black pieces that show off some added sporty style. You have the dark RS-style hood, a blackout grille, black window trim, dark tail light louvers, and a black spoiler wrapping around the rear fastback hatch.
And of course, we love the look of the full black lower section with the sporty RS-style bumper. Even the upgraded 18-inch wheels get in on this midnight style, and the extra-grippy tires on these alloys are a reminder that this is that kind of coupe that is ready to be driven.

The red interior is quite stylish, especially with the contrasting white piping. The comfy velour upholstery, power windows, armrest center console, rear defogger, and pop-out sunroof all give this the comfy and premium feeling you want from a Mercury. You may choose to restore the air conditioning or upgrade the stereo for your ideal classic. But what we like is that this already has a terrific driver-focused attitude. It's in stock pieces like the well-contoured bucket seats and full gauges with large speedo and tach. There are also nice upgrades like the sports steering wheel and a Hurst shifter.

Under the hood is the correct-style 5.0-liter fuel-injected V8. It's quite a tidy powerhouse that's ready to show off. It also makes it easier to see nice upgrades like the MSD Street Fire coil and Mishimoto aluminum radiator with dual electric fans. The V8 inhales deeper with an upgraded cold air intake, and shorty headers add power and rumble to the dual exhaust. It's a powerful package, and you take full control thanks to the five-speed manual transmission. Power steering, power brakes, front discs, a rear sway bar, and grippy sport tires complete a terrific classic for anytime driving.

This was the final year of the Fox body Capri. Since many more people opted for the Mustang, you get far more rarity while still getting easy to source components. So this Capri is driving passion in a distinctive style. That's why this one is so irresistible. Call today!!!
