Iv'e spotted a granada with five lug front disc brakes! The problem is that I don't know what year it is. It has no tags.
Is there any other way to know if the disc brakes fit or bolt on to my 65 mustang.

The only other Granada is the fox chassis and it has four lugs as "stock" so that Granada should work UNLESS it's actually a Versaille which have different front spindles and brakes. Stu

Your stock spindle will be different. If the car is a 70's Granada the caliper brackets will be bolted on to the spindle with two large bolts. The one at the top will bolt from the front of the spindle back ( head will face forward) the bottom bolt will have it's head point toward the car. The caliper sliders are held in with an allen head bolt. Stu

The hub on them is larger, as you can see in the picture. Best one I have, i didn't take one of the spindle itself

Yes, You'll want to add an adjustable prop valve on the rear brake line to avoid rear lock up. I've done this swap on a '68 Cougar. You'll need the pushrod from the original master cylinder as the Granada one is about 2 inches too long. Stu

I've got a set of 67 spindles. Will bolt right up, just have to use 67 outer tie rod instead of 64-66 outer tie rod.
