Well, I fairly disagree because the Granada isn't cubic enough to fit this car.

Are you sure about that?
Granada
Marbelle
Versailles

As Mel said, the quad headlights are from the Versailles, but the rest of the car is more similar to the 1978-80 Granada, with 1981-84 Lincoln Town Car taillights.

I'm three years late, but I think Mel was correct, this car is rather a Ford Granada.

Also, excuse my use of the word "humble" to describe a basic Ford marketed to be compared with the likes of Cadillac and Mercedes-Benz vehicles.

I digress. I, myself, think that the Marbelle generally looks to be based on the Granada over the Versailles due to its lack of vinyl top, lack of the Lincoln Mark series grille, and the addition of the little vents on either ends of the headlights, a Granada-inspired feature. The only things it takes directly from the Versailles are the rectangular quad headlights, as far as I can tell.

Keep in mind that the Versailles is a pseudo-upmarket car based on the humble Granada. They're basically the same car. It's like the first generation Chevrolet Cavalier vs. the Cadillac Cimarron.

And according to GTA Wiki, the Marbelle is based off a Ford Granada:

The Marbelle looked more like the Ford Granada it was primarily based on.

Definitely a 1970s Ford Granada with the headlights of a Versailles (combined with the little vents on either end of the headlights which were seen on the 1975 - 1977 Granadas) and the taillights of a 1980 - 1984 Lincoln Town Car. A nice little collage of malaise era Ford products, and a more understated choice of motoring compared to a full-fledged luxury car like the Emperor. A classy entry-level luxury sedan fit for leisurely cruises.
Such a shame it didn't reappear in GTA V. I'd love to see it return in the future. Hopefully it'll make another appearance in GTA VI or whatever the next installment in the franchise will be called. There are many cars from GTA IV I miss, and this one is particularly high on the list.

By the way, someone should upload a hi-res pictures with non-damaged vehicles.

Also, I saw a Chrysler, which may look like this car, but it was a soft-top.
Hmm, may be qualify as a Chrysler-like model?

That sounds cool, but if you would like to comment; try writing about the car, like what it looks like or possible references to it. Thanks.

No, you just misunderestimated me. I mean pictures on IGCD, not on other sites. This page looks badable with low quality pictures.

One of the best cars of the game !
I see more a mix of Ford Granada/Mercury Monarch with a Lincoln Versailles front and a 1980 Town Car rear...But, for the main car, it's a Granada (No vinyl roof of the Monarch and not the rear windows of the Versailles...)

You know I was going to disagree with you but now that I compare both yes it is a 1980 Lincoln Town Car.

We all can disagree sometimes. ;)
