The car you always promised yourself? The Mk1 Capri offered UK drivers the American sportscar vibe
According to Ford, the Capri was ‘The car you always promised yourself.’ And, for 1.2-million customers, they were telling the truth, such was the sales success of this Mustang wannabe. The Capri was inspired by its American cousin and nobody cared that much that it was simply a Cortina in a party frock. The long bonnet swallowed up the four-cylinder 1300s and 1600s and even the V4 1996cc and V6 2994cc engines fitted with space to spare. GT badging was used to distinguish 1300, 1600 and 2000 models.
