A Magnificent Mk2 Ford Granada with Just Two Owners and 36,144 Miles from New - SOLD!
A magnificent Mk2 Ford Granada with just two owners and 36,144 miles from new.
Full width bumper pads with bright insert, front overriders, bodyside protective moulding with bright insert, bright Exhaust trim, map pockets, facia mounted Ghia badge, quartz clock, oil pressure gauge, front and rear cigar lighter, tachometer, ammeter, trinket tray, wood grain instrument panel and door cappings, tilt/slide steel sunroof, tinted glass, front electric windows, central locking system, power steering, Ford push button MW/LW radio cassette, boot lamp, optional rear electric windows, headlamp wash and dealer fitted tow bar and driving lamps.
The exterior of this Mk2 Granada is impeccable in every respect. Finished in Diamond White it has a deep, gloss shine which is amazing and an absolute pleasure to polish. The colour code and description sticker is still present in the spotless carpeted boot. The Tobacco vinyl roof is unmarked. Supplying Ford Dealer Stonehaven Motors number plates are still fitted. No marks, dings, blemishes or imperfections can be found except one undulation on the passenger wing. It has no stone chips. All the trim is perfect, window rubbers are black and all decals are correct and present including the Ghia badges. The bronze tinted glass is mark free but two microscopic chips can just be seen on the front screen. The Zibart rust preventative plug holes carried out when new can be seen in all the doors and sills but one rubber plug is missing on the driver's sill. The engine bay is clean and original but not detailed. A truly exemplary and unique example.
The interior of this Granada Ghia is outstanding and as new. The twin reclining front seats are covered in the luxurious Crushed Velour/Verona Tan fabric topped with fabric covered head restraints all with no damage. The twin bucket style rear seats and colour keyed shag pile carpet is perfect. All the headlining is tight and clean, all the gauges including the quartz clock operate as does the three speed heater fan. The seat base fabric is a little slack. The boot area including carpet and spare wheel are as new. This car really is a beautiful, unspoilt place to be and exactly how Ford intended.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The 2.8 litre V6 Cologne engine is a real pleasure. Quiet, smooth and effortless producing 135bhp at 5200rpm this is a true Ford treasure. Electronic breakerless ignition ensures crisp performance and reliability combined with easy maintenance and low running costs. Two treasured owners have ensured this low mileage unit is factory correct. The standard automatic transmission with oil cooling is wonderful.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
This Granada it fitted with the factory correct and immaculate 14" alloy road wheels with 185/80 R14 branded tyres all with excellent tread. The hydraulic dual line vacuum servo-assisted self-adjusting brakes with ventilated front discs are surefooted and offer a brilliant progressive feel.
Purchased new by Mr Alexander Farquhar on the 1st August 1979 from Ford Dealer Stonehaven Motors he owned the car for 29 years keeping it garaged, treasured and used sparingly. Acquired by the second owner Mr Dean Hollywell five years ago after a determined search to find the best, most original and low mileage Ford Granada money could buy. Now being offered for sale for a lucky new owner to fully appreciate a rare piece of Ford motoring history.
The Ford Granada Owner's manual is present along with the Ford Audio Booklet. The correct Ford Granada sales brochure supplied when new is also included. Every tax disc from 1980 and numerous old MOT certificates and invoices. All keys are present on Ford key fob and fit all doors, boot and ignition.

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 CID V8.
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

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.
