1980 Mercury Capri

The new fox body Capri arrived in 1979, and unlike the previous generation European Capri, it was obvious the new car was a rebadged Mustang. Styling changes were minimal--the cars boasted a unique front and rear end, and not much else. The RS was the performance package, and eventually received the 5.0 V8, like the Mustang. This base model is a relatively early example--later Capris gained a unique bubble rear window and different taillights.

  1. Wow! What a find, I'm lucky if I see the First-generation ( 1979-82) Mustangs--on this particular body type. Great find
