Ford's large cars have always proved popular as an everyday vehicle. However, one comment throughout the years has been that controls have been difficult to use. On the plus side, for a large car, they are relatively economical and agile.
1965 was the year of the restyle but the most important fact was the 427 engine. Copied by Plymouth and American Motors, Ford then put in a much less economic 7-litre, V8. The Galaxie 500XL provided for those who wanted a sports car and the LTD was built for luxury.By the early seventies the big cars were still grabbing a large part of Ford's sales.
