FORD CAPRI

The Ford Capri is a fastback coupé that was built by Ford of Europe from 1969 to 1986 , It was designed by Philip T. Clark , famous for being one of the main designers of the Ford Mustang, which until recently was an unknown fact.[1] Using the mechanical components from the Ford Cortina and intended as the European equivalent of the Ford Mustang, the Capri went on to be a successful car for Ford, and sold nearly 1.9 million units in its lifetime. A variety of engines were used in the Capri, which most notably included the Essex and Cologne V6 s at the top of the range, whilst the Kent straight-four and Taunus V4 engines were used in lower specification models. Although the Capri was not officially replaced by any Ford model, the second-generation Probe was effectively its replacement after the latter car's introduction to the European market in 1992.
