1981 Ford Granada straight six from North America
A piece of crap
This car was a piece of crap. It would not start the first time. It would take up to five times to start.
It was lousy in the snow. It has a lot of slack in the steering.
The thing was a tank. That was the only thing good about it.
I had it for a year, then sold it to someone that knew more about cars than I did.
The other reviews are right, it is slow.
I truly hated this car. I would stay away from this car.
The car is a tank. Do not buy these cars; it is hard to find a shop to fix them.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

These engines have carburetors. Mechanics who can fix them are still out there. Look harder, and you'll find them. The bigger problem with one of these cars is the fact that they were way slow by 1981 standards (66 MPH 1/4 mile), let alone today's standards.

Needs a 5.0 V8 under the hood to move better.

Really, a V8 would make it faster?

Yes it would make it faster. It's a very common mod for these old Fords.
