Ford planning to revive Mk1 Capri " European Mustang"

Ford secretly planning to revive Mk1 Capri European Mustang


Ford is secretly planning to revive the Caprióno, not the little Australian roadster sold under the Mercury label, but the iconic British coupe once described as the European Mustang.
The retro-styled Focus-based two-door is an extension of Fordís ongoing Living Legends project that has so far spawned the Thunderbird, Forty Nine and GT40. Set to debut in concept car form at next yearís Frankfurt motor show, the new Capri is rumored to be in line for a 350-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder and four-wheel-drive hardware from the soon- to-be-launched Focus RS.

The basic shape is said to draw heavily on the original Mk1 Capri launched back in 1969 as the European Mustang.

My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.

My next Ford.....

The return of a 60's and 70's icon in every domestic market?

Bodes extremely well for an Australian Falcon GTHO doesn't it.

Naturally this car won't be sold in the USA.
