Pretty much everyone who knows me knows that I love loser cars, everyday cars and the stuff that most people donít even think about. Well, thereís not much more of a loser everyday car than one of the best-selling, but most boring, of all the Ď70s three-box sedans: the Ford Granada! Unfortunately, while the real car sold well, there wasnít a lot of interest from kit makers. Just imagine the awesome MPC decal variants that COULD have been made with an early Granada kit!

However, I recently was given quite a rare little gem; one of the 1/32 Lindberg Ford Granadas! Depicting a í76 Ghia, from what I can tell, this simple little kit is not one you see everyday. Depsite its simplicity, itís still a good replica, especially form about 2 feet out!

Check out my Out of Box review for the Granada at the link below!

Adam,
This one is really coming out of left field. I have to admit I'm looking forward to how you finish it as just a little more then a curbside presentation model.

My brother actually had one in Dark Blue with a Dove Gray interior. Nice car back then, but I personally hatted the box style that Detroit was pumping out.

Lol! I don't know... Granada's are pretty lame, so I think it's in keeping with what I do!

It's going to be hard to make it too much more than an okay exterior with a minimal interior, but I have found a real car to base it on, and that's got to be something!

My good friend's brother had one of these while I was growing up. I don't mind the box style; better to me than Hatchbacks! However, I do hate the extra grilles on the headlights... What the heck!?
