Perhaps it was simply down to the fact that there were fewer cars on the roads twenty or thirty years ago, but a Ford was always special to me. I liked the Consul, the Granada, the early Escorts, the Zephyr and of course the Cortina. (OK, I liked all of them!) You couldn't turn on the TV without seeing a Ford, walk down your street without seeing a chap lovingly washing one, or walk past any office or football club and not see a Granada Ghia parked in the directors space.

Fitted with the 24v 3.2 'six' this lovely blue saloon (named Beryl blue believe it or not) has air con, cruise, FSH and only three previous owners from new. The interior looks suspiciously like vinyl MB-Tex, and the seller doesn't mention the interior either, but as it would be rare to spec a 320 in anything less than leather letís assume that it has hide for now. It even has some tax and test thrown in too. In my opinion this is the perfect E Class Benz.
