Ford Mercury Capri MK III Coupe 1978 - 1986 Long Sleeve T-Shirt for Men
The Capri Mk III was referred to internally as "Project Carla", and although little more than an update of the Capri II, it was often referred to as the Mk III. The first cars were available in March 1978, and sold very well initially. The concept of a heavily facelifted Capri II was shown at the 1976 Geneva show. The new styling cues, most notably the black "Aeroflow" grille and the "sawtooth" rear lamp lenses echoed the new design language being introduced at that time by Ford of Europe's chief stylist Uwe Bahnsen across the entire range. In addition, the Mk III featured improved aerodynamics, leading to improved performance and economy over the Mk II, and the trademark quad headlamps were introduced. The bonnet's leading edge was pulled down over the top of the headlamps, making the appearance more aggressive. Ford began to focus their attention on the UK Capri market as sales declined, realizing the car had something of a cult following there. Ford tried to maintain interest in 1977 with Ford Rallye Sport, Series X, "X Pack" options from the performance oriented RS parts range. Although expensive and slow selling these proved that the press would enthusiastically cover more developed Capris with higher performance. interesting point, the third generation Capri was one of the most stolen cars in Britain during the 1980s and early 1990s, being classified as "high risk" of theft in a Home Office report… In November 1984 production of Capris for the European market ceased, from then on it would only be produced in right-hand drive form for the British market. When the last Capri was made on 19 December 1986 at the Ford factory in Cologne, exactly 1,886,647 Capris had rolled off the production lines.
