So this time it wasn‘t that easy than I thought. The reason for that was thra the car wasn’t under the brand Ford or Mercury. It was sold under brand Capri. The first generation Capri was build in Dagenham and Cologne and shipped to the USA and was sold via Lincoln-Mercury dealers. I don‘t know why the didn‘t sold it as a Mercury. The only idea that I have is Ford wasn‘t sure that it the would make money In the USA with the Capri. Regarding the model year there were also some discussion. The Cpari was first sold on the US market in 1970. For 1973, the front bumper underwent a revision to comply with 5-mph bumper standards. The previous chrome bumper was reinforced with a steel tube and attached to the frame with shock absorbers (extending the length of the body several inches). As part of the change, the Capri saw revisions to the grille, taillamps, and its rear quarter trim grilles. As part of an interior revision, the Capri was given a new steering wheel, dashboard, and seat trim along with a redesigned wiring harness. For 1974, 5 mph bumpers were fitted to both front and rear, replacing the previous chrome tube bumpers with reinforced body-colored plastic bumpers.
some of you were fooled by the internet, because some source said that this is a Mercury Capri which was simply wrong.
So the correct answer was: 1973 Capri
The correct answers were sent in by:
The following guys said that it is a Mercury Capri. Those will get also some credits
Unfortunately Ford Capri wasn‘t correct. Because the US specification Capris were never sold as a Ford
