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.
