The Capri Mk III was referred to internally as "Project Carla", and although little more than an update of the Capri II, it was often referred to as the Mk III. The first cars were available in March 1978, and sold very well initially. The bonnet's leading edge was pulled down over the top of the headlamps, making the appearance more aggressive. At launch the existing engine and transmission combinations of the Capri II were carried over, with the 3.0 S model regarded as the most desirable model although the softer, more luxurious Ghia derivative with automatic, rather than manual transmission, was the bigger seller of the two V6-engined models like the sale car on offer. Finished in Dark Blue matched to a Blue cloth interior, ‘VOO 362W’ displays a credible but unwarranted 83,900 miles and is offered with V5c, collection of invoices and old MOT certificates. Subject to an engine overhaul in 2011 and fitted with sports exhaust manifolds plus equipped with later 280 Capri alloy wheels, the vendor currently grades its engine, transmission, electrical equipment, interior trim, bodywork and paintwork all as ‘very good’.
