‘ Very few of these cars are kept stan­dard’

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Living With Classics -

‘Most own­ers pre­fer to keep things look­ing stan­dard aside from RS bumpers and wheels, but en­gine swaps are com­mon. It helps that the en­gine bay is big enough to ac­com­mo­date pretty much any­thing; the 24-valve 2.9-litre Granada Cos­worth V6 is pop­u­lar but the en­gines are get­ting ex­pen­sive. Other com­mon mods in­clude an XR4x4 lim­ited-slip diff and posher-spec in­te­rior, al­though these are bodystyle-spe­cific, and leather­trimmed hatch­backs are rare.’
