Since the historic return of our beloved 5.0, better known as the Coyote, we have witnessed all kinds of cool swaps pop up. From Fox and SN95 Mustangs to street rods and vintage ’Stangs. While anything stuffed with a Coyote engine is pretty cool, sometimes someone builds a swap that just pegs the cool meter. In this case, it also happens to peg the tachometer!
This 1973 European Ford Capri — a popular European equivalent to America’s beloved Mustang — is in the process of combining classic European styling with modern American muscle. The result is one unique, nasty sounding hot rod.
The video above shows the Coyote screaming to what is described as 8,500 RPM — and our ears would have to agree that is pretty accurate. A set of killer Weld Racing drag wheels and the just-right stance make for a wild-looking, one-of-a-kind ride you are sure not to see two of at the local cruise night.
According to Wikipedia, these cars only weighed between 2,100 to 2,500 pounds from the factory. Add the Coyote with a Cobra Jet intake and this car has no choice but to be scary fast! We hope to follow up again on this Coyote Capri again once it is finished.
