Interesting...
According to this Link from Wikipedia, it could be a pretty rare car.

I think it was produced possibly in Germany. I had a later model when I was stationed in the Netherlands in the mid seventies.

Not a bad looking car, never heard of them before.

hey, the Ebay car is in my town!! I may try to go over and look it over. Not particularly attractive in my eyes, but I do like the roof line.

Capris were made in Europe and sold by Mercury dealers. Every one I remember had a four-cylinder engine. There were a few sporty models but I don't remember seeing one like that. I'll bet it is a model that wasn't normally imported into the US. Would be a great car with a 5.0!

That's what threw me for a loop. I've pretty much known every single car that has been made since the invetntion of the automobile. I'm just surprised that there was any car that I did not know about!

That would make one heck of a street rod! If I was closer and had more garage space I may pick it up. That could be really cool but really expensive to build.

I remember the car line as English Fords. This one reminds me of 61 and 63 Comets that I had in high school and college, espceially when viewing from the rear. Of course, Mercury took the name for the Mercury Mustang after they enlarged the Cougar.

According to wikipedia, they made only 500. I may have seen one once and I knew the weren't common I didn't know they are that rare.

The later Capris are well known and common here in Europe, and apparently in the US too, with more than half a million sold.

They follow the similar lines of a FORD CORTINA.
There is a guy here in Ramona that has three of them.
Of course rust free.

Good luck finding parts for it. Unless there is another platform of Ford from the same era that used similar parts?

I bought a new 1974 Capri with a 2800 CC V-6 and 4spd. I decided on the Capri instead of a new Mustang II as it seemed more like a "smaller" Mustang than did the Mustang IIs.

I remember owning a German Ford that was sold in this country during the 70's. That kinda reminds me of it. Not a bad design at all.

I owned a 1973 capri, v-6 4 spd. I drove it form cal. to nj. The rear axle came out[with tire and rim attached] while I was doing 65 or so in san jose, and flew by me and slammed into the shoulder. besides that it was a cool car.....
