Man, I loved these things.

Isn't it more likely this is a Mercury Capri?
Geez, these are just so awesome. Great details: the accent line, the two vents in front of the wheel, cool rims...
Perfect silouette, love the fastback.

hmm, i'm a bit curious about the right front fender (or lack thereof)

Calvin said...

What is that behind it? Looks like some kind of deluxe Corolla... would be an OPC here in New England

It's a Tercel

Justin said...

Wonder why that fender's missing....
Great color, love that gold-bronze.

This is a 1973 Capri, chrome bumpers. 1974 had big color matching plastic ones. Had a blast in my 73 V6 sweet little car, and at one time the second leading import to the US after the Bug.

a best of 2012, with slight demerits for the deflated tires.

deserves a heck of a lot more comments.

Ahh, the Capri I wanted, instead of the family model with 1300cc engine. :)

Almost extinct now, regardless of the engine.

I had to post because I saw the Tercel behind the Capri too. It's a 5th gen...something between '96 and 99. I've got a '95 with 196k and counting that I plan to take to 300k. It's a good, good car.

Thanks for posting. The Ford Capri is another car I've remember seeing growing up & then one day they all vanished.
The Capri name was used by all three cars in the Ford Motor Company
It was a Ford over in Europe & Australia.
Mercury 1970-78
When the Capri was imported to be sold in America, it was under the Mercury division
Mercury 1979-86 This was an American Capri, it looked like the Mustang.
Lincoln 1952-59
I looked at Wikipedia for the above information
