The 1962-1968 Ford Galaxie 500 and 500 XL models in two-door configuration with a 427 cubic-inch V-8 engine are hot rods.
The 1965 redesign aimed to improve the overall ride experience.
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.
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.
Boo Boo's Garage of Stillwater, Minnesota, maintained the hot rod.
The 1966 Galaxie 500 7-Litre was sold for $55,000 at Mecum Auctions' Kissimmee, Florida.
The 427 cubic-inch V-8 engine was designed for racing and high-performance applications.
