I’ve vented my feelings for the Versailles quite adequately here, and once is enough for a lifetime. That was some ten years ago, and I’ve not seen one since. And my appreciation for the love and care owners bestow on their old cars, even a Versailles, has grown since then. So although I’m not going to suddenly take it all back and wax eloquently about Ford’s blatant attempt to ape the Cadillac Seville with a barely tarted up Granada, I will just say it’s nice to know that there’s one out there getting this amount of TLC.
The mark-up for the Lincoln grille, fake rear tire hump, a few external dood-dads, rear disc brakes and a nice interior was…300% of the price of a Granada. You be the judge.
This one is absolutely pristine. Hidden away in a garage for 45 years? Or lovingly restored? Is that even possible?
