    This is about as close as it got: http://foureyedpride.com/articles/foreign/mexican.html

    But they were marketed as Mustangs and only used Capri bumper covers and tail lights.

    I have a rotted Capri shell that I was thinking of removing the fenders, cutting off the upper quarter panel and attemting to create a capri notch...

    car has wasted floor, hatch is wasted, lower corners or quarters are rusted.... and the frame is gone...

    a notch , with a capri front gives it more of that muscle car look.

    Yeah I am thinking about doing it just because I hate to scrap the capri but if I use parts of it to make something somewhat unique then It makes it a tad better...

    I don't care what you did. Using the aero quarter photos all wrong and shows off the truly skinny roofline. Your car is FAIL in my book. Do away with the aero notch quarter (always ugly as hell, made the aero notch about as exciting as a Dodge Dart), put the sail panel back, and we might have something to talk about.

    Man the red coupri is plain awesome,until you get a magazine cover take a chill pill,even though i kinda agree with the quarter windows,it would look mean with some svo sails
