That’s right, listed here on Hemmings and garaged in Spokane, Washington is this 1966 Ford Galaxie 7-Litre with the 345 horsepower Q-code 428FE V8 engine and C6 automatic transmission! Just for ’66, Ford offered the 7-Litre option, which combined performance and comfort into one rare package. While the paint on this one is looking a bit rough, this seems like a lot of car and horsepower for $7,500!
This Galaxie is a mostly original in the factory Candy Apple Red paint, but the black vinyl top is long gone.
The body appears to be straight, but there is some rust around the rear window, trunk (see below) and frame. A donor frame is included with this purchase.
Your future rusty trunk? Thankfully there isn’t much junk in this trunk!
Here’s the VIN #6J61Q110350 and the odometer is showing 51,986.
This is the running 7-litre engine. The factory disc brakes and rear drum brakes have been completely refurbished with new calipers, stainless steel lines, shoes, wheel cylinders and hardware. The car is sitting on the original 15″ steel wheels, which offer plenty of space for the large Kelsey Hayes four piston calipers.
The red bucket seat interior needs to be refurbished and the wood-grain steering wheel is still present, which is good. This looks like a nice project if you are looking for a ’66 Galaxie. Is this Galaxie in your future?
