1964 Ford Galaxie 500
When it came to performance, no one could even come close to Ford in 1964. That year everything seemed to come together with great styling for the passenger cars and some of the most powerful engines the American auto industry has ever seen. Introduced for mid-year 1963 was the ultimate FE big-block engine, the 427ci V8, but they also offered the fantastic 390ci V8 that could also propel full-size Fords into the front of the pack be it on the street, strip or track. If someone had a need for speed, Ford had at what they were looking for.
Style-wise, the full-size 1964 Ford line featured a modern age design that had sculpted body with flowing lines and most impressively on hardtop models, fastback rooflines that are by far the most appealing and "fast" looking. Fords timeless huge round "jet age" taillights just top it off.
