In the US the Granada was more a utilitarian car and is not well remembered. I know the Euro version has always been very different.
The Granada has been around in various guises for quite a while. It was always fords flagship model for europe and came with various sized engines ranging from 1.8 litres up to 3.0 litres in the mark 1. The mark 3 came with a few engine sizes the most popular being the 2.0 litre as i have in my one above (straight 4) and the 2.9 litre Cosworth powered V6 version. The 2.0 litre tends to be a bit underpowered but is very economical for the size of vehicle. The cossie powered one goes like the clappers and tuned you can squeeze about 300 bhp out of them. The Granada was a very popular car and still is but are getting a bit thin on the ground for good examples.
Why oh why didnt they give us a V8 version
