1992 non turbo 500 bucks!
« on: March 05, 2019, 10:49:08 PM »

Hello all. I just bought a 1992 Capri convertible for 500 bucks in Atlanta, GA. Non turbo in rough but running condition. New distributor but it idles for a minute or two then stumbles and dies. Something I have to investigate further. I am a master automotive technician by trade for over 25 years so I should be able to figure this one out. Vin number is 6MPCT01Z7N8601313.  It needs cosmetic and engine work but I am going to restore it and mod it some with new wheels a hardtop new interior and custom stereo. Are there any resources on where to get a new hardtop at? Thanks for allowing me to join this forum. Its loaded with good information! Have a good evening!  Terry

I doubt you'll find a new hardtop anywhere but check the for sale ads on here and keep an eye on Craigslist.

Yeah i am beginning to figure it out. I thought the aftermarket had more for these cars but not really. I looked on craigslist and amazon and facebook marketplace where i bought the car from. Thanks for the advice!
