Ford presented their new full-size model for 1966, which they called the 7-Litre. The “7” stood for displacement and “Litre” spelling gave more charm to the otherwise ordinary Galaxie. Under the hood was the 428 V8, which produced a respectable 345 HP to deliver a convincing performance.
However, the 7-Litre equipment was also interesting because Ford put everything they had into this car. Buyers could get A/C, and bucket seats were standard. There was also a heavy duty suspension and power everything.
Drivers got a choice of special colors and of course, the 7-Litre badges on the sides that helped identify this model. This was a one year only model, so in 1967, they 428 was back, but only as an option on the Galaxie, not as a standalone model.
