Please set year as 1981 - the 1978 version had more chrome on the bumpers.

I saw it in a comment on the page of a 1980 or 1981 one, but I cannot find it anymore, unfortunately.

Nothing listed by Glass's for trim changes across range from Aug 78 Mk2 launch to Oct 81 facelift, although many new/adjusted trim names/levels and some special editions during that period. This does not have the Oct 81+ grille, and looks likely to be GL - wheels, chrome window trim.

Black mirror could be a clue? AFAIK this type of mirror only appeared on the late ones.

No info listed on mirror finishes by date or version.

We have a few from Jan 1981 with chrome mirrors:
/vehicle_855568-Ford-Granada-1981.html
/vehicle_53937-Ford-Granada-1981.html

But if we look at ones from later in 1981 we seem to get the black mirrors:
/vehicle_372852-Ford-Granada-1981.html
/vehicle_646334-Ford-Granada-1981.html

So it seems that they must have only fitted these mirrors for about six months. No clues on the bumpers. Maybe it's for a specific edition? Or maybe the bumper on this car has been painted.

1980 MY Granada brochure.

I'd say wheelcovers for cheaper versions differed between 1978 and 1980 MY.
