1982 Ford Granada 2.8 Ghia Estate



1982 Ford Granada 2.8 Ghia Estate

The vendor has kindly supplied the following:

Royal provenance-

The car was part of Queen Elizabeth the Queen mother's fleet, being leased from Ford, what it’s royal duties were are unknown. Not registered until late 1983 and being built early 1982 as whilst in royal service it would have been issued a royal diplomatic plate. The first registered lady keeper bought the car when it returned to Ford - who was also at the time a member of the royal household and a deputy lieutenant - I have this in writing from herself. DVLA used to issue for a small fee all previous keepers history to a registered owner, I also have all this info. Roughly 19,000 miles were covered whilst in royal service

This a very solid, unmolested MK2 Ghia X Granada, never been welded and doesn't require any! Has been kept in garage since purchase in 1999 at a mileage of 82,600. Current mileage 83,045.

Car starts and drives but will require a good going through prior to returning to the road. Never been undersealed and super solid just look at the photos below.
