The Capri/Miata question comes a bit out of the blue. And while Ford and Mazda had a partnership for a while, the answer is essentially no. The Miata was designed in Japan with a backbone frame and rear-wheel drive. The Capri (I assume you're talking about the Australian-designed two seat version) had a turbo but was front wheel drive and much more conventional for the time. The Capri's handling was no match for the NA Miata.

are the Darrin fenders the same? Check if different stainless strips needed.

I can't say for 100% that it had never been repainted, but traces of sound deadening and flock were still there. Packard did not in general do fancy trunk trimming on Juniors.

The front floor still has the rubber mat, not carpet.

Just not the Gadsden flag - that one has been corrupted

I think your trunk was originally paint and flock, not upholstered. Rustoleum Smoke Gray was a good match to color that was in my 49 (22nd) Eight.

looks like 22nd and 23rd series, 48-50. The loose piece may be the wedge for attaching the wings.

I think it's called a Spanish Grain. I found an excellent match to the brown with black wipe used in 22nd series lower door panel kick pad area. This was in an upholstery shop by going through stock books. They did a lot of boat upholstery, which is on a pretty heavy scrim and has UV absorber compounded in.It was some years ago but this may help your search.

But it says the 47 is "fully restored" - with no bumper, silly wheels, the interior all sprayed over, and bucket seats.

Mine are pretty simple, just some stitching, plain cloth, but I can't say 100% that the pattern is original
