An old Ford,  but which model? Whether it was ever going to get out of its parking space is another matter. In Santiago, Chile.

Going by the first two images and the close proximity of the vehicle in front of the ford car you are talking about you must have a fantastic wide angle lens to be able to obtain the third image of the front of the car.:)

Aha, no taken at different times :).  I passed it several times on the way back to our hotel. There must have been a bit more room for the last image.

From a search it appears to be a late 1970s Ford Granada Ghia

Square headlights and the word Ford pressed in the grille:  1978-80

(75-77 have round ones and Ford in the chrome strip)

What would be the difference between a regular and a Ghia?

The Ghia has exclusive trim on the inside and the outside and added sound insulation says Wikipedia.

No idea what that would mean though. Was the vinyl roof available in the regular trim also?

Anyway it lacks the chrome side trim all Ghia's have. (Could have fallen off though.)

 

Oh and it's a Sedan as opposed to a Coupe.

My best buddy's dad had one in beige. Decent enough car. It was a "downsized' Ford. Still huge.
