Mk1 Coupé was ahead of its time! First launched in December 1970, it took the Motor Industry by storm with its flare and panache. It’s style was heavily influenced by its American counterparts, such as the Ford Mustang and the Chevrolet Camaro. It was available in a range of powertrains from 1.4 litre to 2.0 litre, with trim levels ET, LT, ST and GT. For me, the only one to have was the 2.0 lite ST. Powerful, punchy, with a whole host of instruments and black corded seat trim.
