The Capri II was sold in the US during the 1976-1/2 to 1978 model years. Capri I ran until 1974, and the Capri II was replaced in the US by the Fox body Capri about 1979.

That Capri II body style was a '75 in europe, and a '76 in the US. However those bumpers were never used in the US. We got big battering rams, not little chrome things. Those look like bumpers from the '73.

Rick, I just built that exact kit last year for the Cannonball, the grille on it is the optional "custom" piece from the kit. From what I was able to figure out from the kit box, instructions, and decal sheet I believe it was a 1975 Capri II. Its a very nice kit considering its age, stands up well compaired to modern kits.
