 Ford Granada 2.9 Ghia
The Granada seems to almost have followed in his footsteps, the chubby kid which became the slim and stylish youth, before growing increasingly large, bloated and ugly.
For this test, we were loaned a G registered Granada (the best part of ten years old), well past its first bloom of youth, and now depreciated almost to the bargains section of Auto Trader.
At least with the Granada, the ones that were produced, including the so-called Scorpio, seem to be lasting quite well, so we could be seeing them for a long time yet.

Der Ford Granada (benannt nach der andalusischen Stadt Granada) ist ein klassisches Automobil der Ford-Werke AG in Köln und war im sogenannten „oberen Segment“ (obere Mittelklasse und Oberklasse) angesiedelt (Daneben gab es auch ein amerikanisches Ford-Modell, das den Namen Granada trug, mit dem europäischen Modell aber nichts gemeinsam hatte.
Das etwas einfacher ausgestattete Schwestermodell des Granada ist der Ford Consul, der speziell die obere Mittelklasse bediente, während der luxuriösere Ford Granada auf die Oberklasse zielte.
Ford verwendete den Namen „Granada“ in England aufgrund des dortigen hohen Imagewertes der Typbezeichnung bis 1994 auch noch für die Nachfolger-Baureihen (in Deutschland Scorpio ’85 und Scorpio ’92).

 Ford Granada/Scorpio - Review - 1987 Granada Scorpio 2.9
So when my father decided it was time to buy himself a new car, and found his old Granada to be worth approximately the square root of naff all on a trade-in the problem was solved for me, and I’m rather pleased with the result.
It’s benefited from having some good owners – Ford themselves ran it for a while, before it’s next owner, who kept the service history stamped for the next 8 years until it came into my father’s ownership.
The fancy original Ford stereo with separate graphic equaliser refused to use the right hand speakers when playing cassettes, but the 80’s vintage hi-fi would have been first in line for replacement with a bit of Sony RDS trickery anyway.

 Ford Granada MK1   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-08-18)
This is the fourth Granada that I have owned, I bought it in 1992, It had 69,000 miles on the clock and the body work was in reasonable condition being only slightly crumbley around the edges.
Although the car was garaged and only used in the summer the bodywork gradually deteriorated until I was forced to make a choice of either scrapping it or having it restored.
Early GXLs are quite rare, which was one of the things that tempted me. However its been sitting in a garage gathering dust since I bought it so I sometimes wonder why I bothered.

Production lasted until the arrival of the Granada Mk II in 1977, by then the Granada had established itself as a top selling model in the European large car sector.

 Ford Taunus V4 engine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The German V4 was built in the Cologne plant and powered the Ford Taunus and German versions of the Consul, Granada and Transit.

SAAB 96 with V6 Since the engine mounts and gearbox connections are identical between the Ford Cologne V6 engine and the V4, some vintage V4 Saab 96s were modified to take a V6, for rally racing, although this dramatically changed the weight distribution and steering characteristics.

 Ford Scorpio 1995+
Throughout mainland Europe Ford referred to the vehicle that we in the UK know as the Ford Granada as the Scorpio just to confuse everyone - if you require information about that particular car then we recommend the Granada and Scorpio Online site.
Ford Introduced the Scorpio on 1st October 1994 and it's perhaps an understatement that it didn't go down too well.
However Ford had always been leading the way in styling back to the launch of the Ford Sierra that came in for similar criticism, but went on to become a classic design and accepted by almost everyone.
