This is the same convertible top frame
and convertible top as the Australian
This Mercury (and Australian Ford) Capri convertible model was produced in order to compete with the popular Miata convertible. The Mercury Capri convertible with the soft top was manufactured between 1990 and 1994. It is the same car as the Australian Ford Capri (the Australian Ford Capri was made beginning a year earlier, in 1989) and the two Capri convertibles take the same top. Capri convertibles enjoy great popularity. There are Mercury Capri clubs worldwide.
Capri Convertible Top Variations:
There were essentially no changes to the Mercury Capri convertible top (Mercury Capri soft top) during these years. However there were two differing lengths for the soft top Capri hold down cables. Cables hold the sides of the top to the frame. Capri convertible top cables were slightly lengthened in 1992. Restorers can determine the cable length by measuring the side seam if the original soft convertible top is now on the car. Otherwise (if a prior replacement convertible top is on the Capri) you can measure the cable by "feel."
Original Mercury Capri Convertible top fabrics:
The Capri convertible soft tops were made of a "cabriolet top vinyl" just like the Miatas and Volkswagens. The dealer Capri convertible top was almost always either black or white. The same Capri convertible top fabric is available in other colors too and the selection of top fabrics can be viewed at our site.
