Absolutely stunning and very rare 1966 7 Litre Ford Galaxie Hardtop, in one of Ford's most beautiful period colours, Tahoe Turquoise, with white roof and parchment trim.
This was the first year for introduction of the new 428ci Ford V8, rated at 345hp, within two years to be renamed the Cobra Jet 428. In 1966 in an effort to add sophistication Ford chose to market the new big block engine under the more prestigious Euro style '7 Litre' designation. Although the most highly prized of the '66 Galaxie model line-up these unique Hardtops accounted for less than 0.5% of total production due to the high-end pricing.
Complete with magnificent plush bucket seats as standard with extended console for the up-rated C6 T-Bar auto transmission these 7 Litre cars were the epitomy of full sized sports luxury cars in the USA. This example is one of the nicest we have ever seen, and its already here in Australia! With factory power steering and dual exhaust it is equipped with up-rated front and rear suspension unique to the 7 Litre cars and is in outstanding condition having been fully restored in 2009. A huge documentation folder with restoration receipts is included.
Hard to find now like this even in the USA, and impossible to replace anywhere near this price. Also featured on Classic Restos with Fletch. Only three known in Australia. If you love old Fords just buy this, keep it and use it for at least a decade, you can thank us then. Perth, WA car. (Ref. 4585)
