17. Ford Capri Perana
Basil Green was an accomplished racer turned tuner and dealer. When Ford introduced the affordable and cool Capri coupe in late 1969, he realized the potential. So he soon introduced the Capri Perana. Green took the 3.0-liter V6 Capri from England and installed a 5.0-liter Ford V8 from a Mustang.
To make the car handle properly, Green had his engineers modify the suspension, chassis, brakes, and steering. So, after some thorough work, the Capri Perana was born. The power output was around 280 HP. But in the lightweight body of the standard Capri, the Perana was able to reach 60 mph in just six seconds.
