So few times is anything actually ever definite when it comes to old cars. Case in point: When we highlighted a droptop 1980 Mercury Capri as a Hemmings Find of the Day last month, we were given to believe it was the only one built, commissioned by William Clay Ford Jr. and sliced and diced by Andy Hotton Associates. However, thanks to reader Mark Storch, we now have photographic evidence that Bill Ford’s Capri was not the only one so modified. Unfortunately, even though Mark’s parents have owned the Capri since the early 1980s, he’s as stumped about its origins as we are. Did Andy Hotton Associates turn out this convertible Capri as well? And how many more of these might be lurking out there? Do we need to get Bill Ford on the phone stat to answer these questions?
