Ford Capri 2000 GTXLR V4 1972


The first series of Ford Capri, had narrow strip rear lights & the power bulge only on the 3.0 V6. In 1972, Ford made some cosmetic changes whilst retaining the classic Mk 1 shape, going to cluster rear lights & putting the power bulge on all models, even the 1300. Before they did so they made a limited edition of the 2 litre GTXLR with the old rear lights and the, replaced at update, V4 engine, loaded with a number of options & having for this edition only the power bulge on the bonnet. This was the one I had, & it was possibly the most enjoyable car to drive that I’ve owned.
