Ja­son Mal­lock-Long’s Mk2 Granada Fea­tured: June 2018

Classic Ford - - CLASSIC FORD AWARDS -

A Mk2 Granada is per­haps not the most ob­vi­ous choice of drift weapon, but that’s just what Ja­son and fab­ri­ca­tor, Rich Bishop of Bishop’s Be­spoke Builds have in mind for this for­mer 2.8 GL. A wed­ding present from his wife, Pearl, Ja­son knew just what he wanted to do with — and to — the un­sus­pect­ing Granada, trans­plant­ing the V8 en­gine and gear­box from a BMW E60-shape 5-se­ries, along with most of its sus­pen­sion to cre­ate a for­mi­da­ble drift toy that will still re­tain the clas­sic Mk2 Granada styling and essence. The ’80s styling of the big Granada mixed with the power of the BMW en­gine? What’s not to like? Ja­son and Rich hope to have the car ready for 2019’s drift events, and we can’t wait to see it in ac­tion.
