The second release on the Ford Capri Mk 1, after the brilliant yellow version here comes an all-over bright red model registered FPA 289J from 1970. Additional trim is finished in black and silver with the sporty image extending to black coachlines along the sides and round the rear wheel arches.
Introduced in 1968 into the UK market, the Ford Capri Mk1 had been designed by Ford’s US designer Philip T Clark. Its sporty look and sleek lines, 4-speed manual gearbox along with its affordability to the ordinary motorist made this fastback coupé a desirable motor to have. Assembled at the UK’s Halewood plant, production continued until 1973 when it was superseded by the Mk2, which also features in the Oxford series.
