The Ford Capri was an automotive export project by Ford Australia, Broadmeadows in the eighties. This one appeared recently at the end of my street and is proudly driven by a local store owner, purchased from the original owner, a retired CEO. Over 66,000 were produced from 1989 to 1994 with over 90% exported, mainly to the US as the Mercury Capri.
