The Capri Mk III was referred to internally as 'Project Carla', and although little more than a substantial update of the Capri II, it was often referred to as the Mk III. The first cars were available in March 1978, but failed to halt a terminal decline in sales. The concept of a heavily facelifted Capri II was shown at the 1976 Geneva show: a Capri II with a front very similar to the Escort RS2000 (with four headlamps and black slatted grille), and with a rear spoiler, essentially previewed the model some time before launch. The new styling cues, most notably the black 'Aeroflow' grille (first used on the Mk I Fiesta) and the 'sawtooth' rear lamp lenses echoed the new design language being introduced at that time by Ford of Europe's chief stylist Uwe Bahnsen across the entire range. Similar styling elements were subsequently introduced in the 1979 Cortina 80, 1980 Escort Mk III and the 1981 Granada Mk IIb. In addition, the Mk III featured improved aerodynamics, leading to improved performance and economy over the Mk II and the trademark quad headlamps were introduced. At launch the existing engine and transmission combinations of the Capri II were carried over, with the 3.0 S model regarded as the most desirable model although the softer, more luxurious Ghia derivative with automatic, rather than manual transmission, was the bigger seller of the two V6-engined models. Only 100 Capri 3.0 RS were manufactured by Ford in 1979 and 1980 - exactly 50 units in each year.All were painted in white with blue side stripes. Today, this is one of the rarest and most sought after of the big Ford Capris. The car which we are pleased to offer comes from an important single marque collection and received a light restoration in 2013 and has been continuously serviced since. The restoration included brakes and brake cylinders including a remanufactured brake master cylinder, RS exhaust manifolds, air filter, new fuel pump, new sealing kit and ignition. Lastly, the car received a new protective underbody sealing and new paint. Reading only 112000 kms on its odometer, the car was regularly driven and its last service was done in summer of this year. Presented in beautiful all over condition with its original interior, this very rare Capri needs nothing and is ready to be enjoyed by its next lucky owner.
