1976 Capri II Wants You To Know It's Not A Mercury, Even As It Awaits Crushing

Illustration for article titled 1976 Capri II Wants You To Know Its Not A Mercury, Even As It Awaits Crushing

While Lincoln-Mercury dealers sold the European-made Ford Capri in North America, the cars themselves had no marque. Just to make things more confusing, Ford branded the later Fox Mustang-clone and Mazda 323-based Capris with Mercury emblems. Anyway, none of that matters for this car, which I spotted in an East Bay wrecking yard last weekend, because it has a date with the cold jaws that will get it ready for another spin of the steel-reincarnation wheel.

@LTDScott, Porcubimmer pilot: Yea this photo is post-10 hole. I took it at Fab Fords in April of this year. Oh and yea the owner is really cool. It's really great when you have someone who knows the entire history of the car, especially since they are the history maker of the car.

For those of you that are curious photos are here:
