The Appeal

Entering production in 1985, the Ford Granada Mark 3 was the latest incarnation of Ford’s business executive, luxury saloon which followed in the illustrious footsteps of a model first produced in 1972. 

The one we have here is a bit of a time capsule, having been parked up in dry storage during 2006 before emerging and being re-commissioned in 2019.

Upgraded since with full leather interior, although the original GL cloth trim will be passed to the new keeper.

History & Paperwork 

  • First registered on the 15th of July 1991 by Heath Ford of Newmarket
  • Only 2 previous registered keepers
  • V5c registration document in the vendor’s name
  • Genuine low mileage confirmed by the previous owner
  • Current Mot until May 2024
  • The seller informs us that the car was dry stored between 2006 and 2018
  • Original owners’ folder

The Interior

  • Full leather upholstery from a Scorpio
  • Electric front seats
  • Electric windows
  • Factory fitted sunroof ( manual )
  • Original Ford radio
  • Also comes with the original cloth interior, which the seller informs us is in really good condition, Includes door cards, seats etc

The interior of this Granada is in great condition, and having been changed to leather by the vendor, sumptuous too. The original interior will also come with the car should you wish to change it back to standard.

There is very slight cracking to the top of the dash & another on the rear shelf. Other than that, and a little scuffing to the driver’s seat leather, everything is in good order. 

We’re informed that all electrics work as expected, the sunroof is sound and opens as it should.
There is a slight issue with the speedometer as it flickers occasionally. This has been diagnosed as a faulty gearbox sensor unit.

The Exterior

  • Dark Blue paintwork
  • Alloy Scorpio wheels ( inc spare ), also comes with 5 original steel wheels and plastic wheel trims.

Generally good throughout, although there is blemishes to all sky facing panels ie boot, roof and bonnet which have probably occurred during storage.

There is also a little bubbling around both rear arches. The glass appears to be in good condition along with most of the plastic trim items. The exception being the narrow trims which run along the front and rear bumpers as shown in the photographs. All the tyres appear to be in good condition.

The Mechanics

  • 2.0 litre DOHC engine
  • 5 speed manual gearbox

Underneath the bonnet, the engine bay appears clean and tidy.

When driven to the photoshoot, it started easily and settled into a quiet tick over. No clunks or bumps were noticed as speed bumps were negotiated. The vendor states that it drives well without issues and can return 42 mpg when taken on a reasonable run.


So, this Granada GL with Scorpio upgrades could just be the car you’ve been looking for.

Low mileage, well looked after by only 3 owners including the vendor, sunroof, electric windows and most of all, individuality, you’ll not come across many more on the roads, could well be worth a wave to other fellow enthusiasts.

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.
Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.


C&C prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.
Auctions are extended by 3-minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £10,000 £100.00
£10,000 to £50,000 £250.00
£50,000 to £100,000 £500.00
£100,000+ £1000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.
You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you’re able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
