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.

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. Wink Martindale is the voice over for this video.
