Think that's possibly MK1 Granada.

The L,XL,etc as well as the wing shields were changed to black at the facelift.

My 75 XL is a facelift but has red wing shields. My 76 GT had 2.0 numbers on the wings.

I once spoke to guy who bought a Mk3 Cortina GXL with Granada GXL pillar badges on it, he just would not have it that they were not original ,said they were on the car from original :laugh::laugh:

 

If he bought mine it would have been 2.0 efi engine original ,and if he bought yours Tony it would have had a V8 in as original :rofl:
