Description Ford Capri Mk3 V8 Small Block Chevy Auto. Wonderful Condition!

 Ford Capri Mk3
This started out as a 3.0 Ghia.
I bought this as a part completed project from the estate of an enthusiast. His best mate was selling it on the behalf of his widow. There are a few gaps in the history/specification for obvious reasons.
The engine is a small block Chevy 305 with a TH350 auto box.
I have done a lot to it to finish it , and bring it up to its present condition. It has a new Summit 4BBL carb, new HEI distributor and new leads and plugs. It has tubular exhaust manifolds. The starter is a new geared one and it has a lithium battery. Various things like alternator and PAS brackets have been sorted. I don't have any specs of the engine internals.
The rear axle is from the original donor car (Chevy Nova I think) and has an LSD. There are new spacer adaptors to bring the PCD to match the std Ford pattern. The gearbox has a Mr Gasket shifter and a new cooler.
The rev counter has been recalibrated to read correctly for the V8. All other gauges work properly.
There are new rear air shox. The front shox and springs are new. Most suspension bushes are polybush.
It has power steering.
The sun roof works as do all the locks, windows etc. One key fits all locks. The tailgate gas struts are new.
I made the air intake vents on the bonnet - been watching too much Dave Kindig!  The air filter is new.
Alloy valve covers with T bolts.
All the brake lines, solid and flexi (braided s/steel) are new. The fuel line is also new.
It has been repainted as the original paint job was a bit suspect.
The interior is from an LX Capri. Carpets are new.
Goes, stops and handles very well. The shell is very sound and has been rustproofed. Good stereo with new door speakers.
The car looks pretty stock, apart from the V8 badges and the wheels (almost new tyres).  It attracts huge amounts of attention. It has loads of MoT and will be serviced before it goes.
Lots of other things I have missed I guess.
Boring bit.
Please come and view - or at least make sure it is what you want / you have the funds /ask the missus /gf / bf.
Happy to answer sensible questions and even happier to ignore / be very sarcastic about stupid questions.
At least 10 positive feedback please, or if less, contact me before bidding.
£1000 at end of auction within 12 hrs please. Balance cash or transfer.
Do not ask reserve - and no sneaky questions to try and find out. You know the sort of money this is worth.
Viewing positively encouraged.
