While the fox chasis was introduced in '77 for the 1978 model year
fairmont (mustang did not use it until MY 1979) the granada nameplate
was not moved to a fox car until '81. There were fox based cougars and
tbirds as well. 

If you read that segment again it reads that the granada and monarch
were unchanged UNTIL they BECAME rebadged fairmonts. Meaning that
the car's name was then used on a fairmont variant.

Like I said before, the European Granada had no place in that thread, as
the discussion was the CarOscope recommendation of the American Granada.
