Own This Ultra-Rare 1966 Ford Galaxie 7-Litre Convertible

Only 428 convertibles were produced with a 4-speed manual transmission.

Back in 1966, Ford debuted a car that topped its full-sized vehicle lineup, the Galaxie 7-Litre. The car was basically a Galaxie 500 XL but with performance features and stuffed with the new 428cui V8 engine. Offered as its own standalone model in '66, the "7-Litre" name was reduced to just an option package for the 1967 model year. But by 1968, the 7-Litre moniker no longer existed. Only 11,175 of the Ford 7-Litre models were produced with only 2,367 of those being convertibles. To make this example even more rare is that only 428 convertibles were produced with a 4-speed manual transmission. Even better, this well-restored 1966 Ford Galaxie 7-Litre is up for grabs.

Given a full restoration according to factory codes, this classic beauty shines brilliantly in a repaint of its original hue, Vintage Burgundy Poly. Breaking up the deep glossy paint is a black convertible top in perfect condition.

Stuffed inside the massive engine bay is the aforementioned 428cui V8 engine equipped with 427 exhaust manifolds and topped with a Holley four-barrel carburetor. A 4-speed manual transmission shifts power down to a 3.25-ratio rear axle. Factory power steering allows for easy maneuvering, and power front disc brakes help bring all power to a halt.

Open the doors or drop the top to reveal an immaculate interior complete with black vinyl 500 XL bucket seats. Other highlights worth noting inside the car include a factory AM radio along with an added CD player, auxiliary gauges, a rear speaker, a full console, and a correct GT steering wheel.
