A full size car produced by Ford from 1959-1974. The Galaxie name was also used in Brazil until 1983, and the Ford Galaxy was an MPV sold in Europe.

The Ford Galaxie was the car of 1965 NASCAR Grand National (the series that would eventually become Sprint Cup) driver's champion Ned Jarrett.


History

The following section is an excerpt from Wikipedia's Ford Galaxie page on 21 September 2019, text available via the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.

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 prefix 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.

The Galaxie was the competitor to the high-volume full sized Chevrolet Impala.

The similarly named Ford Galaxy is a large car/minivan available in the European market. The vehicle's name is believed to be derived from the original Ford Galaxie.
