"Great insight into Fords best selling range of the time."

This is a well written, concise history of one of the worlds largest carmakers in its heyday. Full of large, easily examined pictures, it includes reproductions of advertisements, and sales brochures. The text is easy to read and understand, and follows a clear chronological order. All in all, I am highly impressed and recommend this book to anyone interested in the large Fords from '55 to '70, or indeed, anyone interested in US Autos from that era regardless of brand.


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.
