Under the hood, the massive 427/425 HP V-8 engine makes use of a side oiler and transistorized ignition, and it’s linked to a 4-speed manual transmission that sends power to the 3.50 rear end with 31-spline axles. Painted black, it rolls on color-matched steel wheels with standard hubcaps and redline tires, and it’s one of only 25 listed in the 427 Galaxie Registry. The interior in red is a place where passengers can stretch out in living-room comfort, thanks to the big bench seat and extensive legroom Galaxies brought to the game. By 1966, Ford’s Total Performance advertising campaign was in full swing and people were taking Ford seriously when it came to building performance cars. Mustang was huge on the scene, especially with the Shelby GT350 package. The GT40 was winning at world-class competitions around the world, and more staid cars like the Galaxie, Fairlane and even Falcon had their own performance formulas, lending them not only serious track credibility, but aggressive styling that set them apart from the crowd.
