The range was moved to the newer Ford Fox platform (introduced as the 1978
Ford Fairmont and Mercury Zephyr) for the 1981 model year and was sold
through the 1982 model year. The Granada name was retained, but Ford
retired the Monarch name for its Mercury brand as Ford began using a
stretched Fox platform to underpin the next-generation Mercury Cougar
sedan. Styling of these cars resembled a slightly bigger and more formal
version of the Fairmont, with upgraded interior trim. Base power for the
Fox-body Granada was a 2.3 L Lima I4, with an optional 200 cid I6 and 255
A wagon joined the line-up for the 1982 model year, replacing the Fairmont
and Zephyr wagons, available in "L" and "GL" forms. The Granada became the
first Ford available with the Ford Essex V6. The 1982 model also saw the
return of the Blue Oval logo on the exterior of a Ford vehicle for the
first time since the Great Depression (the logo was however clearly stamped
on an interior aluminum trim piece attached to the door threshold of the
first generation Granada, both two- and four-door models). Although most
other Ford models saw the logo arrive in 1983 (except for the Fairmont,
which was about to be replaced with the Ford Tempo for 1984, and the Ford
Thunderbird, which rarely had any mention of Ford on the vehicle itself for
most of its existence), the Granada saw it arrive a year early, largely as
a test. While Ford had quit using the logo on its vehicles during the
Depression, it had remained over the years as its logo in all other uses
(corporate logo, sales literature, advertisements, owner manuals,
dealership signs, etc.) and decided to use it again on its vehicles.
For 1983 the Granada name and styling was retired in the North American
market, but the model was replaced by a similar Fox-platform-derived model
that used the traditional big-car name LTD. Ford also offered a Mercury
twin as the Marquis.
Ford subcontracted assembly to Hyundai Motor Company in South Korea for
sales in that market, where it continued to be sold from October 1978 to
1986 when it gave way to the Hyundai Grandeur instead of smaller European
Fords like the Sierra and Escort. Production ended in December 1985, after
4,743 had been built. The car originally received a 2.0-liter V6 engine
with a 2-barrel Solex carburetor, but after 1980 the more economical
2-litre four-cylinder was also available. The Granada competed with the
Saehan Rekord as well as the Peugeot 604, imported by Kia Motors. Chung
Mong-pil, the eldest son of Hyundai's founder Chung Ju-yung, died in a car
accident in a Granada.
Additionally, hearses were offered by outside conversion companies, as well
as a series of four-door limousines built by Coleman Milne. These
included the slightly stretched "Minster" 15 cm, and the 68 cm longer
"Dorchester" and better equipped "Grosvenor". As of autumn 1982 the
Dorchester was also available in an estate version with elongated rear
doors, called the "Windsor".[21

This is from one of My SUbscribers who knows ALOT about these cars
All wagons from 71-76 rode on the C-body chassis (127 inch) wheelbase...
(Chevrolet Belair-Townsman, Impala-Kingswood, Caprice-Kingwood Estate), the
Pontiac Safari (Catalina, Bonneville, and Grand Ville wagons were all
Safari's) - (Grand Ville was called Grand Safari), Olds Custom Cruiser
(with 88 and 98 interiors), and Buick Estate (LeSabre and Electra series
interiors). In 1977 the wagons moved to the B-body chassis and rode on
the 116" wheelbase until 1996 when they were discontinued
