PRODUCTION INFO

 
In the spring of 1985, a white Capri 5.0L from Spiker Ford/Lincoln/Mercury in Milford, MI was brought to Graphix Concepts in nearby Novi, MI & then to ASC McLaren in Livonia, MI.  This would become the prototype for the Motorsport Capri. 
The remaining cars would be built at Ford’s River Rouge assembly plant between May 24 and June 7, 1985.
They would be sent to ASC McLaren directly from the plant for conversion.
An additional car started being built in May prior to the track cars & the replicas. This car would be completed June 13 & sent to another location (believed to be Roush in Livonia, MI) to be converted into the pace car for the Detroit Grand Prix. It received a specially modified engine, additional graphics, light bar & other features needed to be used as a pace car.
