  • Granada Turbo , approval documentation

    Hello Ford-friends in Germany!
    Sorry for writing in English, my German is too bad in written form.

    I’m the lucky owner of four Fords, three German, and one US:

    Please have a look at tronderford.com/treff/2007/1_4.jpg

    Both the ’86 Sierra XR4X4 and the ’88 Scorpio GL 4X4 are by me, restored into original condition.

    The US-made Maverick is a 2002-model and still in original condition.

    The fourth one, a ’78 Granada Ghia 2,8i turbo intercooler, is a light custom built car, with an Eichberg turbo set.

    It’s a detailed description of this car at my homepage at jorgen.tronderford.com
    click the German flag, and you can read the “Gesichte” in German.
    I’ve built this car by myself and the turbo set was bought from Helmut Eichberg, “selbst”, when I visited his store and workshop at Hasbergen, outside Osnabrück, in 1986.

    The car has been stored away since 1990, and used only in connection with our annual gatherings, with impermanent number plates, arranged every year since year 2000, se homepage tronderford.com.

    Now, when the car is passed the magical 30-years of age, it’s possible to register the car as a veteran car, as I’ve understood you are entitle “oldtimer” in Germany.

    In that connection, I have a great great problem:
    I have been in touch with the officer for veteran certifications at the Norwegian agency for vehicle certification, like your TÜV.

    The officer claims that he has to been displayed a certificate, which prove that the car has been approved with the Eichberg turbo set or an equivalent set, from a German certifying agency.

    I’ve tried to reach Eichberg GmbH, several times, by e-mail, telephone, telefax and mail, but it’s completely impracticable to get an answer from Eicberg, it seems that the company is resigned. A Ford shop in Hasbergen has now confirmed, that Eichberg Motorsport is closed.

    Therefore I’m now try this way, are there any visiting this forum, which can help me.

    I need a copy of an approval document, which confirms the certification of an MkII-Granada, (1978 – 1985)

    Please help me, if not, I’m forced to rebuild my Granada back to a self aspirating 2,8i to get the number plates back on the vehicle.

  • hey Jørgen!

    welcome here! nice car, also interesting the place for the intercooler.

    I´ve got german documents for the May-Turbo combined with the Tauns/Cortina. I got them from the "Schwabengarage", one of the biggest Ford-Dealers in Germany, maybe the biggest. If you write them an email, I think they will send you the same documents for the Granada because the conversion was also possible for the Granada, you know. This Ford-Dealer placed the conversionkits of the May-Turbo into the cars in the 1970s´.

    this is the Url of the Dealer: schwabengarage.de/

    you can get into contact with them under the point "Kontakt", ehm, I think you know it. ;)

    Greetings to Trondheim! :spitze:

  • Eichberg still got a webpage online. Are you sure they have closed down? Office hours are in the morning between 09:30h and 12:30h only.

    Another chance might be to contact the certifying authority. They surely still exist and they have those documents on file.

  • Abnahme Dokument

    Was der junge Mann aus Trondheim braucht ist ein Abnahme Dokument bzw. Zulassung für den Eichberg-Turbo .

    It could very well be so DC.

    As a Norwegian, I’m not so familiar with the German system, but I appreciate your recommendation.
    If you are able to help me with such a document, I’ll appreciate your contribution a lot.

  • Thank you for your advice maroc

    Thank you for your advice maroc. I got a similar tip one week ago, and I have bought a similar exemplar from “Doppescheinwerfer”. It’s not exactly the goal, since it’s for a Capri, but it could be usable in a discussion with the reviewer.

    Thank you again, we are still looking for a Gutachten like that, but for a ’78 Granada, or for certification documents, ein Abnahme Dokument, for a Granada with a similar turbo set installed.

    Have just visited your blog, a good exemplar, worth to take care of.
