By 1955, the one-size car to fit all-customers era ended, and by 1960, Ford offered compact, mid-size, and full-size cars. While Ford's Mustang and Thunderbird stole the headlines, Ford's full-size models, the Galaxies, Fairlanes, XL/500s, LTD, Crown Victorias, and others, delivered exceptional comfort, performance, and style in a variety of different trim levels and power train packages. For families, the full-size car was the chosen mode of transportation. Many owners remember these cars from their youth, and hold them in high regard. These models populated the roads and garages because Ford offered a full range of cars with the base six-cylinder engines all the way up to the high-performance 429 cubic-inch V-8.

Full Size Fords: 1955-1970 is a fascinating retrospective of the cars - the design process, manufacturing, equipment packages, and a thorough listing of options, interior patterns, and paint codes. All models from 1955 to 1970 that brought Ford to dominance in the full-size category are revealed in compelling detail. The introduction of the Galaxie, the development of the Skyliner retractable roof car, the radical redesign of the 1960 models to counter Chevy's new sedan, and much more is covered. Period magazine reviews provide insight and perspective of the driving experience and performance of various full-size models. A fascinating retrospective on Ford Y-Block engines as well as Ford FE engine family and the new for 1970 Lima series engine is also provided. In addition, author David Temple examines Ford's racing exploits, featuring the dual-quad 427 Cammer engine, the Galaxie Grand National race car, and factory and lightweight drag cars.
