Details

On 25 February 1974, the Capri II was introduced. After 1.2 million cars sold, and with the 1973 oil crisis, Ford chose to make the new car more suited to everyday driving with a shorter bonnet, larger cabin and the adoption of a hatchback rear door. This made it the first Ford to feature a hatchback, at a time when the hatchback was becoming increasingly popular in Europe after first being patented by Renault in the mid-1960s. By the standards of the mid 1970s, the Capri II was a very well evolved vehicle with very few reliability issues. Although it was mechanically similar to the Mark I, the Capri II had a revised, larger body and a more modern dashboard and a smaller steering wheel. The Capri still maintained the large rectangular headlights, which became the easiest way to distinguish between a Mark II and a Mark III. 

This iconic Ford Capri is finished in Oyster Gold with Chocolate fabric seats. This car was purchased new in 1979 and has only had 2 owners and covered just 68k miles. Recently is has had a full restoration including a bare metal external glass out respray and the following work:
