Ford Granada

There are over 60 videos in the above playlist which include a wide range of Granada models being raced, crashed, painted, started or simply admired.

I had the pleasure of driving a top-of-the-range Granada back in 1987 during my brief stint as a driver at a local Ford garage, and the smoothness of the handling and luxuriousness of the interior blew me away. Mind you, after driving my Austin Metro City X then even a skateboard would feel like luxury!

The European Ford Granada was built between 1972 and 1985, and until 1994 in the UK (the Ford Scorpio was built as a replacement in Europe). The American Granada was built between 1975 and 1982.

The Granada was an executive car that was built by Ford Europe in Dagenham, England (1972 to 1976) and Cologne in Germany. All production switched to Germany after 1976.
