1985 Mercury Capri ASC McLaren

Gateway Classic cars of Louisville is proud to present this 1985 Mercury Capri McLaren Edition. 1985 Mercury Capri ASC McLaren was an experiment to see if American muscle could be polished to compete with European 2-seaters like the Mercedes SL. the legendary Ford 5.0, this is a nicely preserved example of one of the more interesting footnotes in the Mustang/Capri's long, illustrious history and a downright fun car to drive. This example shows only 93,343 miles on the odometer but has only 43,000 since being completely rebuilt and gone through to ensure a wonderful driving experience for years to come. The interior is perhaps the McLaren's most dramatic feature. First, the back seat is gone, replaced by a Mercedes-style package shelf that's actually pretty handy for running errands around town. The Recaro buckets are upholstered in high-grade tan leatherette and are every bit as comfortable as they look. The center console almost looks like a factory Capri piece, but is just different enough to make even experts do a double take. The rest, of course, is standard Capri fare, including the highly legible gauges and well-designed switchgear. Standard features include power windows and locks, A/C, and a fantastic AM/FM/CD stereo. Seeing as ASC specializes in convertible conversions for the OEMs, it should be no surprise that there's a snug-fitting black canvas top that stows easily under the flush-fitting rear deck and offers a very Mercedes-like rear window treatment that is surely no coincidence. Power comes from the Mustang GT's 5.0-liter V8, which made a robust 180 horsepower and 260 pounds of torque. It's legendary, so I'm sure I don't need to get into the specifics, but it's remarkable to see a completely stock and unmodified 5.0 that hasn't been heavily modified and raced. Everything is pretty much the way the factory intended, so it starts easily and runs beautifully and has a nice burble from the throaty dual exhaust. A 5-speed manual transmission makes for easy around-town driving and with the tall overdrive, the freshly installed 3.55 gears in a fresh 8.8-inch axle with limited slip mean that it still loafs along on the highway. One of only 460 Mclaren Capris built in 1985, this is surely one of the very best. Hailing from long-term ownership and with receipts and maintenance records, it's a car you can buy with confidence. Options on this 1985 Mercury Capri McLaren include: AC, AM/FM CD, Manual Convertible top, Spare tire, Power Steering, Power locks, Jack, Power windows, tilt wheel, Seat Belts, Leather interior, And Aluminum Alloy wheels with Radial tires.
