Fords promotion’s department marketed these cars as – ‘Ford 7-Litre…either the quickest quiet car or the quietest quick car’ - giving the nickname ‘Lightning without Thunder’ The following is a link to Jay Leno’s Garage show where he restores a 7-Litre Galaxie similar to the one his Dad owned when he was 16 – great story Note;- The last photo is for illustration purposes only !
