V8 Powered Custom Ford Capri

Welcome everyone. I'm delighted to show how I took a standard 2 litre Ford Capri Laser and built an all-steel wide body Capri with a 3.96 litre V8 engine, roll cage, wide wheels and more. Hand built and all in steel. It's not a kit, it's a one-off all-steel, wide-bodied Capri. The Fat Capri.

I trust to insure The Fat Capri :-)

Building the Fat Capri


How The Fat Capri was built – all in steel and all by hand. Only the spoiler is fibreglass – everything else is metal

Supercharged Engine


Rover V8 engine – first time out it was supercharged with a Wade RO34 blower, but now it is normally aspirated.

Out and About


The Fat Capri out and about at shows, on the road and being enjoyed. Unless there's salt on the roads, the Fat Capri is driven.
