The Ford Capri is a fastback coupé built by Ford in the UK between 1968 and 1986. It was designed by Philip T. Clark, who was also involved in the design of the Ford Mustang.
The Ford Capri used used a lot of the mechanical components from the Ford Cortina and was intended as the European equivalent of the Ford Mustang.
The Ford Capri went on to be a highly successful, selling nearly 1.9 million units in 18 years. (The Anglia sold 1,600,000 units in 28 years). The Capri came in range of engines from a 4 cylinder entry level motor to V6 3 litre brutes. The Golden years of Ford in the UK was due to the great success of the Ford Cortina, Ford Escort and the Ford Capri.
The Ford Capri was a sleek looking vehicle that has stood the test of timelessness. It is still popular in the racing community but are becoming quite scarce. For a more comprehensive history visit Ford Capri on Wiki.
