It is confusing as it appears the same chassis were raced both as Capris in Trans-Am and Mustangs in IMSA.
"During the following season, Roush fielded the Capri in Trans-Am and the Mustang in IMSA GTO. The two cars were so closely related that the same chassis was raced as a Capri one week and a Mustang a week later. It was another hugely successful season for the team, clinching both championships. For 1986, Roush switched to the Mercury Merkur for Trans-Am, while the Mustang continued to dominate the IMSA GTO class."
That makes perfect sense. The only real difference was the bubbleback on the Capri. I saw Willy T Ribbs throw that Capri around Mosport like it was a dirt midget. Very entertaining, until he wore the tires off it and spun out with a few laps to go. Some guy in a Porsche won it, but it was Tom Gloy that really impressed. Smooth as silk and very fast. I think it was 84, not sure. Those were the days.

JC Thanks for the Capri SCCA Trans Am pics, very interesting the changes for the two categories, IMSA and Trans Am, I had wanted to do the Capri but the Capri stock kit was inaccurate with the later Bubble rear window and other things that would have been a waste particularly since the kit was OOP and very expensive when found. Thanks Again Chris
