Currently running a 1963 Consul Capri with the running gear off of a 3000E Capri (V6 Essex)

Built with lots of Burton's parts and geared to be very quick from a standstill.

looking good, where you buy your screen and door rubbers from

Got them off the owners club.  The 1/4 light rubbers was extruded in Vietniam on a special order, not cheap but you have to have em.  Club still has some left

Here’s one for you, from the Capri club international. Obviously they don’t know their own model or the history of it

NOVEMBER 1968 Manufacture begins at both the German and British plants. JANUARY 1969 The Capri makes its first official public debut at Brussels Motor Show. MARCH 1969 The 2000GT introduced for the UK market, fitted with the V4 engine. SEPTEMBER 1969 The 3000GT introduced, powered by the Ford Zodiac 'Essex' 3-litre V6.
