are they the same as the mk1 capri engine? as know of somebody who is wanting one to go to good home (not scrapped).
full car it has black and white number plates, but not very good condition although i'v been informed it will start.
reason for being free is scrap is around 100 for the car (not much) and he would like it to be of use.

According to one of Robson's books I think some Mk 1 Capris may have had the 1500 cc pre cross flow engine in GT tune (GTs in 63 and 64??) but others had 1300cc and 1600 cc cross flow engines later on .............I don't know enough about the ones in standard tune to even hazard a guess, other than to say that any engine block with a casting number 120E 6015 is highly likely to be a 1500cc unit.

where is this casting i'l have a look for you on sunday. its on a friends farm. i'm pretty sure that something was mentioned of it being 1500, because i thought that most low cc fords were 1100, 1300, 1600, of course the 950cc fiesta's as well.

The casting number is underneath exhaust ports 3 and 4. (ie just above the starter motor) near the bottom of the engine block!! (ie on the true left hand side).
