3: 1962 Ford Galaxie 406
Ford for all of its faults had tried very hard to sell consumers on the Galaxie line of cars. The Galaxie 406 was another attempt at trying their hand at a performance vehicle. From a design standpoint, the 1962 Ford Galaxie 406 was a well-put-together car for the most part. Its reliability, however, was another issue altogether and it didn’t end well for the car.
The Galaxie 406 had a powerplant that was lacking the reliability that you’d expect from Ford. The off-the-line performance was also slower than a lot of cars in this segment, which left a bad taste in enthusiasts’ mouths. Overall, the 1962 Ford Galaxie 406 is probably one of the most disappointing aspects in the history of the Galaxie brand.
