1993 Ford Granada/Scorpio Cardinal Hearse Coachwork by Coleman Milne Registration no. K989 CBA Chassis no. 57504 Engine no. NK57504
Ford continued to use the Granada name for its large family saloon when the model was comprehensively redesigned in 1985, though this would be changed to Scorpio part way through production, which continued well into the 1990s. A rear-drive five-door hatchback, the Granada/Scorpio was notable as the first mainstream production car to have anti-lock brakes as standard on all models. As usual a wide variety of engines was on offer, ranging from a 1.8-litre four (soon dropped) to a 3.0-litre V6. There was also a 2.5-litre diesel option. This Granada/Scorpio-based Cardinal hearse has the 2.0-litre four-cylinder twin-cam engine and automatic transmission, while the coachwork is by Coleman Milne of Westhoughton, Lancashire, the UK's foremost specialists in the construction of hearses and limousines. The vehicle has had three previous owners and has been in the vendor's possession since 2004; just out of use, it is described as in generally good condition and very reliable. The automatic transmission was reconditioned 10,000 miles ago and the odometer currently displays a total of 83,000 miles. Offered without reserve, the vehicle comes with MoT to 7th December 2011 and Swansea V5 registration document.
