1968-1973 FORD Capri Mk I 3000 specifications


The big daddies of the mainstream MkI Capri range were the 3000 models, available as the performance-orientated 3000GT, the more luxury-focussed 3000E and (from 1972) the flagship 3000GXL. Trumpeted as Ford’s fastest ever production line cars, with a maximum velocity around the 120mph mark, these big bruisers of the Capri world could be distinguished by their bonnet bulges... at least until the smaller-engined models also adopted these posing pouches in 1972 (even though they had nothing to fill them).
