The second-generation Mercury Capri appeared in 1979 and was based on the same platform as the Ford Mustang of the same age. Engines ranged from a 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine through a few V6 engines and up to a 5.0-liter V8. The car had a distinctive squared-off nose and flared fenders, all of which remained largely unchanged throughout the car’s life.
