Hoping someone might be able to help. Looking to find out how many T Top RS Capri's were made. I've decoded the VIN and cross ref'd my Capri literature and books but can't find the percentage of those made with hardtop, sunroof, and T roof. Does anyone have these available?
I know that only 3,600 or so RS's were made in 84 but that's as far as I've gotten.
Thanks for the help.
VIN is 1MEBP79M9EF 60-6130
Mike, you're right I should have been more specific. As far as I can tell Ford / L / Mercury didn't publish any info regarding number of sunroof cars, number of t roof cars, or otherwise. Specific to four eyes, it would only be hatch, coupe, conv ( I know that since this is a Capri that I was referring to, this would not apply and would only be referenced to the ASC McLaren Capris ) models. I've seen some percentages on this site that indicates that some years 7-10% of the models produced were t roof cars, but I have yet to see any figures from the factory to substantiate this thus far. At this point, we're left to assemble our own data and best guesses on these. Sorry if I was not clear in the beginning, should have worded this more accurately.
I would trust that data more than I would the Mustang and Capri data I constantly see quoted from books by a certain author. I can tell you right now that the database I am working on contradicts the total number of 1983 Capris and 1983 Turbo RSes purported to have been produced in one of the author's books.
