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. 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.
