Factory Original Ford Capri Mk1

Inspired by the success of the Ford Mustang “pony car” in the US, Ford UK launched “The Car You Always Promised Yourself” in 1969. It was an instant hit. There was an almost bewildering range of specs and trims, from L to XLR. An upgrade in 1972 introduced the overhead-camshaft Pinto engine to the 1600 and 2000 models, along with a front-end facelift and a new dash layout. Not to mention a 1300cc four-cylinder to a 3-litre V6. Thirty-nine incredible variants of the Mk1 Capri were released at launch. Factory-Original Ford Capri Mk1 takes you through the production period and pins down the correct factory specifications, equipment and finishes across the range, including the RS3100 and the factory “specials”. This information is backed up by specially commissioned color photography of 10 outstanding examples of the cars. You'll love the detail in production changes, dates and numbers, engine and chassis numbers, and aftermarket specials - convertibles by Abbott and Crayford, and performance Capris including the Broadspeed Bullitt and the Uren Comanche. There is also information on Capris built outside the UK. This is the most comprehensive guide on the Capri Mk1 that has ever even been attempted. It's thorough enough to satisfy the most ardent enthusiast for these stylish and desirable cars, and detailed enough to provide answers to questions about originality.
