It included one for a Capri 500. This was what the 280 was originally planned to be, but then for some reason (maybe left over stock) they decided to make 1038 of them.
Problem is, they only ordered enough paint for 500!
So the next 538 had to have another batch of paint made up. not only did it turn out to be a slightly different shade, but Ford tried to keep the cost down by ordering the minimum amount they could get away with, hence the reason 280s have very little paint in the door shuts, under the bonnet etc.
