German Ford: 1974 Mercury Capri

Prices for the Mercury/Ford Capri have been historically low for a number of reasons. First was Fords inexplicable placement of the Capri at Mercury dealers when it was a Ford in Europe and sold well as a Ford over there…but in 1974 it was objectively a wayyyy better Mustang than the Mustang II and somebody in the Ford product planning group managed to get the Capri marooned with a Mercury badge…uggg.  The years since haven’t been any nicer, because car guys have prefered to drive Opel Mantas and Nissan Z cars…but if you open your heart (and eyes) you might find that the little Capri has something unique to offer. Find this 1974 Mercury Capri offered for $5800 in Phoenix, AZ via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck.
