1983 Ford Telstar.jpg

Ford Telstar (GC/AR/AS). 1982–7 (prod. n/a). 4- and 5-door sedan. F/F, 1587, 1789, 1998 cm³ (I4 OHC). Mazda Capella (GC) with new front and rear ends and Ford badging. Mechanically the same. No coupé. Five-door badged TX5. Big technological advance on Cortina, which it replaced in Australia and New Zealand, though in the latter market, a station wagon variant was missed, and the Sierra Turnier was hastily brought in for local assembly. Popular and a welcome all-rounder in the mid-sized market at the time, and Ford’s main entrant through most of the Asia-Pacific, but more seemed to be affectionate toward its predecessor. Sold at Autorama dealers in Japan.

Manufacturing locations: Hiroshima, Japan; Homebush, NSW, Australia
