Ford Galaxie






Introduction: A predecessor to the muscle car era, the Galaxie was Ford's fullsize competitor. Although it outpowered the similar Chevy Impala at first, it never sold as well do to its uninspired styling, poor aerodynamics, and heavy weight. Ford kept trying though and continued to install larger and larger engines, reaching a pinnacle with the most powerful engine Detroit ever made, the Cammer 427. Producing 657bhp, this engine was installed in only a few copies as it was almost impossible to drive on the street and was later banned by NASCAR, promting Ford to stop production. Most street racers had to rely on the Ford 427 engines.
