Lot details


The front passenger side electric window stopped working on Monday. The vendor believes that there might be an issue with the switch. He has volunteered to contribute towards the cost of repair should the new owner so wish. He has also provided us with photocopies of a handwritten log which he and his brother kept that details their journeys in the car and maintenance carried out etc.

Registration No: C765 KCK
Chassis No: WF0NXXGAGNFJ15757
MOT: May 2024

  • A notably late, German manufactured, MkII Estate with numerous Ghia features and finished in Paris Blue Metallic with Navy Blue cloth upholstery
  • Purchased new by the vendor from Gordon Ford of Wigan complete with an extended warranty and still retains its original dealer number plates, rear window sticker and tax disc holder etc
  • Pampered by a lifelong Blue Oval enthusiast for the last thirty-seven years, always garaged and never driven in the rain
  • The finest example we have encountered and ready for the show circuit or a museum

A lifelong Blue Oval enthusiast, the vendor bought this notably late, German manufactured Granada MkII from Gordon Ford of Wigan complete with a 36-month extended warranty. Among the final Estates to be registered, its enhanced GL specification encompassed an electrically adjustable driver’s seat, manual tilt and slide sunroof, premium Ford sound system with quad speakers, overhead map reading lights and electric windows all-round. Finished in the handsome combination of Paris Blue Metallic with Navy Blue cloth upholstery, the five-seater is powered by a 2.8 litre V6 engine allied to automatic transmission. Pleasingly retaining its original ‘Gordon Ford’ rear window sticker, tax disc holder and number plates, ‘C765 KCK’ is warranted to have covered 23,000 miles from new. Benefiting from Ford approved rubber wheel arch guard mouldings, mud flaps and bright wheel centre caps, the Granada MkII has been exceptionally well preserved. Always garaged and never driven in the rain, it is the best example we have encountered and a real credit to the seller.

Recently recommissioned and MOT tested following a period of inactivity, the Estate sports a new exhaust system. Starting readily and running well during our recent photography session, the only known faults are the digital dashboard clock (a replacement has been sourced and may or may not have been fitted by the time of sale), a dimple dent to the bonnet and a small bubble to the leading edge of the same panel. The velour upholstery has gone a little baggy in places due to the manufacturing process Ford then used but it is hard to argue with the vendor’s assessment that ‘C765 KCK’ is in ‘excellent overall’ condition. Worthy of close inspection and coming to market for the first time in thirty-eight years, this amazing ‘Granny’ is offered for sale with V5C Registration Document, original bookpack, Extra Cover warranty, numerous MOT certificates (including the very first and current one) and various bills.

PLEASE NOTE: The front passenger side electric window stopped working on Monday. The vendor believes that there might be an issue with the switch. He has volunteered to contribute towards the cost of repair should the new owner so wish. He has also provided us with photocopies of a handwritten log which he and his brother kept that details their journeys in the car and maintenance carried out etc.
