    Default 65 427 galaxie badgess

    So I think it is time to part with the collection of badges I have spent many years hunting for. I will start with an immaculate set of 65 galaxie emblems. The studs haven't even had the speed nuts installed on them, and they have never been on a vehicle. They are basically N O S without the boxes. The 427 badges do have a small bit of shelf rash, and are have the tri color stripes not the monocolor stripes. I am asking $225 shipped anywhere in North America.
    More of my collection of vintage badges to come.

    Here is my early fifties gmc hood badge, it is in good shape with no stripped mounting holes. It has a few small imperfections from use, but should polish up very nice. I am asking $80 shipped anywhere in North america

    The first 7-Litres were in '66...but those cars had the 428, not the 427.

    Oh, Thanks, I don't think I have been able to get anything right lately at all!
    I think I always thought they were 427. Thats cool that I can at least maybe keep that straight for a while.
    Thanks

    The 427 was available in both the 66 and 67 Galaxie's. It could also be had in 7 Litre models, but those are somewhat rare. I do recall a 427 equipped 4 speed, 7 Litre convert up here about 20 years ago that was very rough.

    The rarest of the rare would be the R code 2X4 bbl 427/425 HP engines, discounting the 427 cammers.

    Ford had a 427 AND a 428. (and a 429 but let's not go there yet)
    427 had 427 badges and the 428 had 7 liter badges.....
    IIRC 427 avail in Fairlane and Galaxie, 428 avail in Galaxie only.

    From the 7 Litre website:

    http://www.7litre.org/

    As of 2012
    653 1966 Ford Galaxie 7-Litres are known to still exist

    433 Hardtops
    280 automatics
    137 4 speed (includes 7 R Codes)
    16 unknown.

    220 Convertibles
    124 automatics
    88 4 speed (includes 2 R Codes)
    8 unknown.


    The "R" code being the 427 2X4bbl 425 HP engine. Thus some 7 Litres were produced with the 427 engine.

    Sorry for the hijack Chris.
