Real USA market early Capris had no Ford badging, power dome hoods, US spec headlamps and sold at Mercury dealers, (Wikipedia

I was just reading in Wikipedia about the Capri. No 1975 models were sold in North America as there were too many 1974's still in stock. Ads of the time reflected that. All were German-produced. Headlamps were four round sealed-beams (shared with the Capri RS3000), and turn signal lamps were grille-mounted on all US-spec 1971–74 Capris and 1976–78 Capri IIs.
Note no 1975 model specs shown.
