In just a few short years, Walter P. Chrysler took his company from an unknown automotive manufacturer to fourth in the industry. Walter Chrysler was a perfectionist with a deep mechanical background. This aspect, probably more than anything, helped to make Chrysler Corporation grow quickly.
A viable alternative that's still daring and different, the 1968 Chevy Impala SS 427. SS 427 Impalas are very distinctive and unique. Sales were modest, so finding an Impala SS 427, especially a convertible, could be a little challenging.
Classic Car Overview
A Granada may not be the first car you were thinking about for a cool/affordable classic, but once you check out the details of this 1975 Ford Granada, youll instantly understand how you need this kind of distinction in your life. Its a V8-powered sedan that also happens to be loaded with some terrific and rare features (like power windows, bucket seats, and A/C.) This was the inaugural year for the Granada. Ford loved to compare these to Mercedes sedans. So they loaded these up with plenty of details like big chrome bumpers, intricate driving lights, and well-creased lines in the sheet metal. It all remains looking impressive today, and the way all four doors still line up so well proves decades of proper care. Even the Tan Glow paint is factory-correct. It was given a respray later in life, and so now you have an added hint of metallic with the right aged-in style where many people will think you have a survivor finish. In fact, this may look like a time capsule, but youll also sport some well-integrated upgrades. The headlights are crystal clear units, and those classic wheels and hubcaps now hold modern tires. And while this wasnt originally sold at Tasca Ford, the rear tag for the legendary performance dealer is a cool little piece to go with the bright dual exhaust tips. The interior is a highly stock presentation of a very luxurious Granada. After all, nothing says 1970s premium like tufted inserts and wood-like trim on the doors and dash. Even the little things like the dome light and key buzzer still work. We have the Marti Report documenting all the rare options this car was born with. There are some classic features that are just there for display, like the factory Philco AM radio, but your favorite ones are still working. Thats why you have smooth operating power windows and cold blowing air conditioning (now using modern R134a refrigerant.) The front bucket seats and a floor shifter were more factory options. So we bet there are plenty of you thinking about how you can create a pretty cool sleeper sedan with the way this has been set up from day-one. But we also just like the preserved look of a sedan with this much distinction and rarity. The largest motor you could get in the Granadas first year was Fords 351 cubic-inch V8. And since this was optioned that way from the factory, its great to still have the displacement under the hood today. While this looks quite stock, it hasnt missed out on maintenance. We even have receipts documenting essentials like a carburetor rebuild earlier this year and a rebuild of the three-speed automatic transmission in 2020. An updated dual exhaust even has glasspacks on it for a better V8 tune. It makes for an excellent cruiser, especially with features like power steering, power brakes, and front discs. We have plenty of maintenance records, and the deluxe Marti Report even shows how you can call this loaded sedan a 1 of 1! It all goes to prove that the car you never expected is the classic you cant resist. Call today!!!
