The Ford Capri is a sporty four-seat coupe that was produced from 1968 to 1986. The car was designed by Philip T. Clark. The Capri was intended as a European version of the Mustang. The first Ford Capri was the MK I. The car was unveiled at the Brussels motor show. The car was similar to the Cortina. With the MK I, Ford intended to create a car that would appeal to a wider customer group by offering the car relatively cheaply. For this reason, the car was sold with a large choice of different engines. Ford made minor changes to the MK I in 1972, including new seats and enlarged taillights.
The Ford Capri MK II was made from 1974 to 1978. After recent developments, including the oil crisis, Ford decided to create a car that was more suitable for everyday use. This led to a number of changes to the car, such as a shorter hood and a hatchback tailgate. The car was mechanically similar to the MK I. However, the MK II was longer than its predecessor and also had a more modern dashboard and a smaller steering wheel.
“Project Carla” was used to refer to the Capri MK III which was produced from 1978 to 1986. The car was slightly different from the MK II. The concept of the improved MK II was presented at the Geneva Motor Show in 1976. The front of the MK III featured four headlights and a special grille. In addition, Ford improved the aerodynamics of the MK III, which improved the car's performance.
