The Galaxie 500-XL sported a new "fastback" roof design on the two-door hardtop. About the same time as the fastback models were being introduced, the 406 V8s were being replaced by a pair of bigger and beefier 427 cubic inch V8s. The base edition equipped with a single four-barrel intake, was rated at 410 horses. For those who wanted the ultimate in pavement shaking power, the 427 with 425 hp was the answer, equipped with dual four-barrel carbs, and plenty of torque.
