This is a Ford Cortina Mk. IV, not a Granada.

But this is filmed in Singapore, a left traffic country, where this car was always named Cortina. AFAIK of this [TC2]-Ford there was a LHD Cortina, but never a RHD Taunus. Or am I wrong? :think:

^ You're correct as far as I know. But there's always a possibility of an as yet unrecognised strange permutation in somewhere equally strange ...

I've never seen any reference to Cortina assembly in Singapore.

I found something very hidden on the Cortina's wikipedia page:
Link to "en.wikipedia.org"

An article about Ford in Singapore on a German Ford enthusiasts page lists some of the models produced locally:
Ford Model Y
Ford V8 (CKD from Canada, 1936 - ca. 1941)
Ford Anglia/Prefect 100E
Ford Consul 204E
Ford Zephyr/Zodiac 206E + later Zephyr & Zodiac models

Car production in Singapore lasted until 1980, but no specific models were named for the 1970s.

New info from World Car Catalogue - various editions (1967-81) for Singapore car assembly listed as Malaysia, supplied from UK:
1967 - Anglia, Cortina, Corsair, Zephyr, Zodiac
1969 - Escort, Cortina
1971 - Escort, Cortina
1975 - Escort, Cortina
1981 - Escort, Cortina

67 and 69 references to Ford US-sourced assembly and then in 71 as Ford CDN-sourced, but no detail on models or anything after 71. Nothing at all about any Ford Germany sourcing
