A Granada may not be the first car you were thinking about for a
cool/affordable classic, but once you check out the details of this
1975 Ford Granada, you'll instantly understand how you need this
kind of distinction in your life. It's a V8-powered sedan that also
happens to be loaded with some terrific and rare features (like
power windows, bucket seats, and A/C.)
This was the inaugural year for the Granada. Ford loved to compare
these to Mercedes sedans. So they loaded these up with plenty of
details like big chrome bumpers, intricate driving lights, and
well-creased lines in the sheet metal. It all remains looking
impressive today, and the way all four doors still line up so well
proves decades of proper care. Even the Tan Glow paint is
factory-correct. It was given a respray later in life, and so now
you have an added hint of metallic with the right aged-in style
where many people will think you have a survivor finish. In fact,
this may look like a time capsule, but you'll also sport some
well-integrated upgrades. The headlights are crystal clear units,
and those classic wheels and hubcaps now hold modern tires. And
while this wasn't originally sold at Tasca Ford, the rear tag for
the legendary performance dealer is a cool little piece to go with
the bright dual exhaust tips.
The interior is a highly stock presentation of a very luxurious
Granada. After all, nothing says 1970s premium like tufted inserts
and wood-like trim on the doors and dash. Even the little things
like the dome light and key buzzer still work. We have the Marti
Report documenting all the rare options this car was born with.
There are some classic features that are just there for display,
like the factory Philco AM radio, but your favorite ones are still
working. That's why you have smooth operating power windows and
cold blowing air conditioning (now using modern R134a refrigerant.)
The front bucket seats and a floor shifter were more factory
options. So we bet there are plenty of you thinking about how you
can create a pretty cool sleeper sedan with the way this has been
set up from day-one. But we also just like the preserved look of a
sedan with this much distinction and rarity.
The largest motor you could get in the Granada's first year was
Ford's 351 cubic-inch V8. And since this was optioned that way from
the factory, it's great to still have the displacement under the
hood today. While this looks quite stock, it hasn't missed out on
maintenance. We even have receipts documenting essentials like a
carburetor rebuild earlier this year and a rebuild of the
three-speed automatic transmission in 2020. An updated dual exhaust
even has glasspacks on it for a better V8 tune. It makes for an
excellent cruiser, especially with features like power steering,
power brakes, and front discs.
We have plenty of maintenance records, and the deluxe Marti Report
even shows how you can call this loaded sedan a 1 of 1! It all goes
to prove that the car you never expected is the classic you can't
resist. Call today!!!
