A Grand Monday: Ford Granada Scorpio

Published 02 July 2018

There's a very strong market right now for 1980s and 1990s Fords, with prices of good examples going through the roof in recent months.

That makes this 1993 Ford Granada Scorpio look like a veritable bargain. Three owners, 41k on the clock, MoT, decent interior... although it's not without its issues.

A recent coolant change and a new thermostat hints at some cooling issues that might be worth checking out (possibly and air lock).

But the vendor is extremely upfront in his description - they're not major concerns at all, mainly a need for some new tyres, balanced wheels and tracking alignhment.

There's also a small patch of rust on one wheelarch (show us a Granada that doesn't have one of those!), a holed back box and a slight transmission oil leak, but none of these will break the bank to get fixed. 

On the plus side, it has an immaculate black leather interior - and these Scorpios were gorgeous inside - along with less than 41,000 miles from new on the clock and no advisories on its last MoT.

Okay, it's not the extra-desirable V6 model (just the 2.0-litre auto), but it is a range-topping variant of what's rapidly becoming a very rare car.

At £650 ono, we say get there before the banger racers do...

my dad had the v6 auto Ghia hatch and it was so fast and smooth. They are massive inside as well. I had a bog standard 2 litre model for a couple of month till my insurance was paid out 16 years ago.

I owned several mk3 Granadas back in the 90's from modest 2.0 up to the range topping and very entertaining 24v Cosworth. One 2.0 dohc Ghia was my trusty private hire car which I ran up to 240,000 miles, with just routine maintenance carried out on the original engine & gearbox. When I sold it to another taxi guy the only thing requiring attention was a noisy differential. Great cars and fond memories, especially my two "Cossies"!
