    Hi

    On a Mk1 Capri (late '73 Faclift) if the Version detail on the VIN tag is "R" is the that the code for Rally Pack? Car is a 3000GT (Type ECJ, Version R, Vehicle Number BBECNExxxxx).


    Thanks.

    The "R" means GT plus the Sports Custom Pack which includes: sports road wheels, auxiliary halogen lamps mounted below the bumper, sports stripe following the line of the bodyside moulding, and leather covered gearshift knob.

    Thanks, was unsure of exactly what extras the "R" included. Pickup my car next week - I will be only the 3rd owner, and the car only has 56,000 miles on the clock from new. Needs a repaint and a little work but a great platform to start with. Date code NE suggests it must have been one of the last MK1 Capris to be made? (December 1973).
