Ford unveiled its executive-sized Granada in 1972 as a replacement for the Zephyr and Zodiac line as well as the German P7 series of cars. Good looking, solidly-built workhorses, they quickly found favour with company fleet managers and the public at large, as well as police forces and taxi companies. The MKII version of 1977 brought sharper-edged styling and a switch from UK to German-built engines for the more powerful versions. The model was available as a two-door or four-door Saloon or five-door Estate and buyers could choose from nine engine options and an array of trim packages.

This 1982 MKII Estate sports Red bodywork allied to Grey cloth upholstery. The vendor believes the indicated mileage of just 26,684 to be correct and commensurate with both the paperwork and condition of the car, which he regards as "good" in relation to its bodywork, paintwork, interior trim, engine and gearbox. A clearly very well appointed example, 'EUA 477Y' is equipped with the 2.8-litre V6 engine allied to a five speed manual gearbox. A top of the range Ghia example, it comes complete with sun roof, roof rack, auxiliary lights, badge bar and period correct alloy wheels. A fine-looking apparently low mileage example that would be the perfect back-up vehicle for a classic Ford rally team.

PLEASE NOTE: This vehicle has an MOT until May 2013.
