1978 Ford Granada 4 Door Sedan Blk
These were the days when Ford was trying to achieve new standards in
quality and quietness...I recall ads from the period that likened these
cars to luxury cars of the time. This car is a great example...I'd compare
that interior with the best on the market at the time.
Two at the Top (Ford Granada launch film) - 1971
When Ford chose to replace the enormous Mk IV Zodiac and Zephyr range, they
took a massive leap forwards with the new Granada and its cheaper brother,
the Consul. Smaller than its forebear, it was lighter, faster, and smarter. This is a shortened
version of the launch film for both cars, and shows how high Ford were
aiming with this car in terms of the cars it was competing with.
MK2 Ford Granada 2.8Ghia
This is my dads MK2 Ford Granada 2.8Ghia V6. This car has been stuck in the
garage for 18years and this is the first time it has come out in all that
time. The car has no Exhaust at all as
we took it off to clean up as it is still very good and can be used. as a
result of this the 2.8 V6 sounds amazing coming straight off the manifold.
78 Dodge Diplomat vs Ford Granada Ghia & Olds CutlassTom Kite featured
78 model year. This basic car stayed in production until 1989. Diplomats
were used extensively as Police Cars and Taxi Cabs after 1981 when the
Aspen and St Regis were removed from the Dodge Line Up. It proved to be a
very successful car for Dodge. Diplomats were based off the Dodge Aspen.
They share much in styling. Even the doors of the car were the same.
Diplomats phased out the stylish two door and wagon in the early eighties.
