1968-1973 Ford Capri Mk1 3000 specifications

1968-1973 Ford Capri Mk1 3000 specifications Classic and Performance Car

Regular Capris looked like muscle cars, but the 3000 models had the power to back up those looks


The big daddies of the mainstream Mk1 Ford 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).
