Using the full-size Galaxie two-door hard top or convertible platform, Ford introduced a brand-new model for 1966 called the 7-Litre. The seven stood for displacement and its Litre spelling gave more charm to the otherwise ordinary Galaxie. Under the hood was the 428 V8 with a respectable 345 HP which delivered a pretty convincing performance (via Hemmings).
However, the 7-Litre’s equipment was also very interesting as Ford put everything they got into this car. The buyers could get A/C, and bucket seats were standard. There was also its heavy-duty suspension, power everything, a choice of unique colors, and 7-Litre badges on the sides, which helped identify this model.
