F819 LOO A Ford Granada 2.9 4×4 that is in preservation. It is one of eight such cars that Ford produced and trialled in various police forces. The car shown was loaned to Wiltshire Constabulary in 1988 and was retired in 1991.



The car has many various changes from the standard model, the most noticeable being the aerodynamic casing for the roof-mounted lights. This was revolutionary but ultimately unsuccessful due to the increased cost.



A closer look at the special roof. The centre square flips up to display different messages to traffic behind. The appropriate message from a fixed selection is placed onto the vertical surface.



The rear of the concept car. The large white boxes on the boot lid are rear-facing flashing lights that operate when the boot is open.
