The Ford Galaxie is a full-sized car that was built in the United
States of America by Ford for model years 1959 through to 1974. The
name was used for the top models in Ford's full-size range from
1958 until 1961, in a marketing attempt to appeal to the excitement
surrounding the Space Race. For 1962, all full-size Fords wore the
Galaxie badge, with "500" and "500/XL" denoting the higher series.
The Galaxie 500/LTD was introduced for 1965 followed by the Galaxie
500 7-Litre for 1966. The Galaxie 500 part was dropped from the LTD
in 1966, and from the XL in 1967; however, the basic series
structuring levels were maintained. The "regular" Galaxie 500
continued below the LTD as Ford's mid-level full-size model from
1965 until its demise at the end of the 1974 model year.
