1976 Ford Capri II 2.8 from North America
I'm a sucker for beautiful looking Babes like this Black Beauty
The shift lever snapped at 36,000 miles.
The half-shafts in the rear differential started to leak at 50,000 miles.
The Electronic Control Module failed at 70,000 miles.
Electrical systems were always under par.
The looks on this car, Blacks S Cat Capri II were hot stuff in the mid to late 1970's.
It chirped between all gears when it had good compression (2.8 liter manual).
It was an excellent car to build up on -- headers, suspension, rims, etc.
The lack of these cars in California (easiest of all climates on autos) does demonstrate it's lack of durability though.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
