nope - the SE5 & 5a front & rear bumpers are modified Consul fronts - as are the coupe (just modified very differently)

5 and 5a are modified very little - coupe are shortened and ends trimmed right off.

Sorry that came out of sequence - the front bumpers are just the ends of the back bumpers - so to speak. Most people fit the 5 bumpers to the Coupe but they are not the same - not as wide and without the widened ends

More on which Ford it is.
It's definitely the coupe roofed consul Capri and not the consul classic(Anglia window) nor the mk 1 Capri. The give away is the quarter light - on the classic it goes up to a point but on the Capri it is chopped off short giving a very short horizontal section to match the lower roof and header rail..

Prev: '53 ZephyrZodiac, '64 Sabra GT, '68 Elan S3SE, Mk3 Cortina 2000GXL, Mk4 Cortina 2000 Est, 3 SE6a's, 2 SE5a, SE4a Turbo, 1800Ti.

Mark, I don't suppose by any chance you have any Se5 laminated windscreens left have you? I know we are 3 years after your post.

Thanks Merv
