FORD CAPRI RESTORATION MANUAL

When the Capri was launched, in 1969, its no-nonsense handling and roadholding and, in 3-litre form, its impressive performance, singled it out from the bland and anonymous saloons of the late 1960s. Capris were straightforward, easy to drive and simple to maintain, and their popularity has been sustained largely because of this.

Cunard: A Photographic History

In 1839, Samuel Cunard travelled from his native Nova Scotia to Britain to raise capital to found his fledgling steamship company, which was to be named the British & North American Royal Mail Steam Packet Company. Quickly shortened to the Cunard Line, the first ship set sail for Canada and America in July 1840 and opened the steamship trade to the Americas. The fleet rapidly expanded to become the dominant force on the transatlantic route, with feeder services from the Mediterranean too.

Never having lost a passenger’s life at sea, Cunard was also one of the safest of the steamship lines and operating comfortable ships. By the 1900s, few lines could match the company’s vessels for speed or luxury and the advent of the four-funnelled Mauretania, Lusitania and Aquitania just confirmed the pre-eminence of the line. During the inter-war years came the Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth and the line could boast the fastest and largest ships in the world.Never a line to stand still, in 1969 came Queen Elizabeth 2 and in the 2000s came the world’s largest liner, RMS Queen Mary 2.96 pages, 180 black & white photographs, 40 colour photographs

When Grandma Wore Breeches

With the country at war and all able-bodied men needed to fight against the forces of Germany, there was a shortage of labour to work on farms and in other key jobs on the land. At the same time it was becoming increasingly difficult to get food imported from abroad, so more land needed to be farmed to provide home grown food. It was the Women’s Land Army that provided much of the labour force to work this land and feed our nation.

The advertising slogan read, ‘For a healthy, happy job join The Land Army’. In reality, the work was hard and dirty and the hours were long. Some of the girls received training before they were sent to farms; the farmers themselves trained others.The Timber Corps was set up to teach women to make pit props, necessary for working in mines, which then had to be loaded onto lorries and transported to the mining areas. The girls of the land army looked after animals, ploughed the fields, dug up potatoes, harvested the crops, killed the rats, dug and hoed for 48 hours a week in the winter and 50 hours a week in the summer. As there was not enough machinery to go round they often had to work with old fashioned equipment, such as horse drawn hand ploughs, and to harvest crops by hand ploughs, and to harvest crops by hand.

Capri Muscle Portfolio 1974-87

The entry level Capri was a 1300cc model but real performance started much further up the range. In Germany 126mph was available with the fuel-injected 2.6-litre V6 engine, while in Britain a 3-litre V6 gave 113mph on Mk I models and 117mph on Mk IIs and a big-bore V6 in the RS3100 offered 125mph. The most collected version is the 2.8-litre, fuel-injected car available in both Britain and Germany. In the USA German-built Capris were marketed under the Mercury name between 1979 and 1983.
