A 1991 pre-production Granada Scorpio, with only 1,325 miles on its clock, is up for auction by the Classic Car Auctions (CCA) on the 3rd of December at the Warwickshire Exhibition.
Ford donated this car to a technical college in Belfast to be used for training purposes prior to the production of the model being launched. After this training the pre-production Granada was no longer needed. It was then used at colleges around County Antrim. When that finally came to an end this car should’ve been scrapped, but a college lecturer took ownership of it which saved it from being destroyed.
The current owner commented:
“When I heard the car was going to be destroyed I just couldn’t let it happen”. “It’s in stunning condition and has barely been used”. “I planned to keep the car forever, but a change in my circumstances means that, sadly, I have to let it go”. “I’m hoping another Ford fanatic, like myself, will give the car a good home.”
When it goes to auction there will be no reserve on it.
Guy-Lees Milne, auctions manager at CCA said:
“This car has spent almost all of its life preserved in heated, dry storage and has an unbelievably low mileage for a car that’s 25 years old.” “Ford fans and collectors won’t find another pre-production, training car out there in this condition on the market.”
