427 Engine Power

Galaxie 500s from 1965 to 1968 are deserving of the hot-rod label, especially the 427-equipped models with a four-speed manual transmission.

These cars are bigger and better-appointed than many of Ford's high-performance Mustangs and Fairlanes of the period.

The 1966 Galaxie 500 7-Litre is an excellent hot rod with a 428 cubic-inch V-8 engine and necessary drivetrain treatments.

Sporty and Comfortable

Despite its C6 automatic transmission, it's a cool-looking car that delivers a sporty style, refined ride, and comfort, and 459 lb-ft of torque.
