Re: Any of you guys know what happened
The back end is almost an exact copy of a reliant scimitar (68 on). Many will know that the scimitar used the zephyr straight six and v6 engines so maybe ford was hoping to do a deal on the design and so built a few capris for evaluation. Obviously it never happened so ford wanted to get rid of the evidence.
Going by the number plate on the scorpion this all happened early on in the capri model run, say 70-71.
