Ford cam back a couple days latter and said they would build the 96 that were ordered in one run and never build another one w/o a sun roof or t-tops. So this is how I know mine is one of 96.
    Looking at the VINs, I really do think there may be some truth to the story...but its not the WHOLE story.

    October of 1985 is going to put you at the beginning of the 86 production run. There may indeed have been a hold on solid roof cars early on for 86. LATER in the production run, (based on the high vin numbers), the hold was lifted and more were made.

    Of the list of vin's we have, maybe the first one is one of those mythical 96...which would make sense as I would not expect to see but one or two.

    Yes, another VIN above 12k....

    (BTW guys, technically no Fox bodied Capri was ever a "hardtop". The word "Hardtop" has a special meaning in the car world. A hardtop, strictly speaking, has no center post between the front and back windows)

    Yeah, that is what we are counting so far....are the v8 cars.

    However, if the story as described a few posts above is for ALL Capris...v8 or otherwise, then it is patently FALSE as I have seen tons of 4cyl and 6 cyl models with no sun roof or ttops.

    Requiring somebody to shell out $$ for a sunroof or ttops when ordering the top-of-the-line v8 model is one thing....but to require it for the 4 cyl version which Ford was touting as an econobox would be silly.

    Both my 86 driver and 86 McLaren have no sunroof. I have the buildsheets for both, but the build sheet for my daily is about 1/2 complete.....water got to it from a hole made from someone's jackstand (I assume).

    86 Capri-615690......P/W, no P/L, AC, Rear Def



    86 McLaren-615761......loaded



    If 86 4cyl cars count.......610545

    I'm going to ignore the 86 asc one for now...since that is a "special" case and who knows if it falls under the jurisdiction here.

    Keep em coming...its very interesting to see nearly all of them fall after 611000.
