Which is a police spec v6 from 1971 :shock:
Heres the granada in the yard

Fitted with leather at a later date as the police spec was cloth

That is such a nice car, even covered in grime. So does this yard owner just locate cars and secure them when they are unwanted? Please tell me the Granada isnt being scrapped....

The yard owners son plans to return it to the road. Its a cracking car-very clean in the engine bay/door pillers etc. He's a scrap dealers but hangs on to the interesting stuff.

That Gordini is fab.. but is that sunroof and aftermarket one? I am not that bothered about such things but they can slightly spoil what looks like quite a solid/standard example...Period modification to some extent so could be classed as still 'retro' i guess.

Every Gordini I've seen from around that time has had a glass 'roof, so I suspect it's been there from new.I despise that type of sunroof.

Has that Bond been spotted before by someone? I'm sure I remember the roof tile+ brick anti- theft device. Needs to be saved badly....one day i'm going to learn how to weld/do mechanical shit and then i wont have to sit here passively sighing at things like that :(
