^^ WHS.

All John Player Specials were either black or white with gold pin stripes. Only available as a 1.6, 2.0 or 3.0, all of which were in GT spec engines only.

The ‘S’ Capri looked similar having the pin stripes. But the S was available in all colours of the range. It didn’t have the standard mk2 front valance (which the JPS did have) the S had a mk3 style front valance. The JPS also had a unique interior design.

Mk1 Fiestas were my weapon of choice when I was in my teens. I've had a few. Approx 15 years ago I bought a dilapidated but completely original 1.1L and built this:

F2.jpg

It looked mean but mechanically remained completely standard. I did buy an MoTd and running Mk1 XR2 with the intention of making the Gulf car a 1.6 x-flow but I ran out of skill and effort and bought a Honda S2000 instead.

Good luck with your project.


Remember that car from the XR2 Forum, which unlike this place is down to about three posts a week unfortunately.

Verdict ? It's alright .   :-D  It's got no 5th gear  :-( central locking or electric windows  :-( but it goes ok up to about  55,  and stops straight . No more torque steer at all , but the range rover engine mounts are too stiff, causing a fair bit of vibration at idle . Stopped at the charity shop and bought some 80's music cd s   The Police , Squeeze and Elvis Costello ,and I was 21 again ..Loud   :-D  Everyone looks and points at it  !  :-P

I was on the Old Skool Ford forum, not the XR2 one. Perhaps the guy who bought it from me was on there.

That's a lovely little car. The colour is fabulous and the over-riders, alloy wheels and rear spoiler add a touch of class  8)

So this morning ,I'm going to work , trying the cd player.. and "Pump it Up"  starts playing , and i do like a rocker :-D  ... I wind it up to 20   ,really loud , but its all going into one original  4 1/2" speaker in the back..Then it goes all fluffy ....and i thought the cd must be knackered ...I've killed the only loud speaker .... :-(  :-(

If a car that has been off the road for a good number of years only has a broken stereo, I think you're doing alright!

I'm not surprised the speakers dead, the cone is made of tissue paper. Any old 10cm speaker will do (the mk1 I had fifteen years ago did get a second one fitted on the other side)

Or a pair of big house speakers in the boot just like back in the day.
