You didn't state what year Capri, so it could be one of the oddball 255s they made for a couple years. The block casting # is on the block just above the starter. If you post it I or someone else can tell you what it is. An easy way to determine if it's a 255 is to look at the port shape of the intake runners. The 302 has noticeable rectangular shape and the 255 has a smaller oval shape. The intake casting # could also help if you don't believe the engine has been opened before.
