1971Ford Galaxie

The full size Fords were resettled inside and out for 71. Basic chassis design and the 121 wheelbase stayed as before. New changes were a massive combo bumper, a grille with deeply inset quad headlamps either side of an egg crate textured center section. Sharp horizontal crease lines above elliptical wheel arches marred the body sides. Rear windows on 4 door hard tops and sedans were slightly curved, 2 door hardtops had bulgy sail panels terminating just behind the door glass, where tiny vertical panes filled the gap. Inside was a new instrument panel housing all controls in a large pod jutting far out from the cowl. Model offerings were shuffled. The XL series was killed, the ragtop moved to the LTD series, and the big sportsroof fastback was dropped. The engine chart remained much the same, but there was a new 400 V8 created by combining the 4.00 inch bore of Fords small block 351 with a 4.00 inch stroke. This relatively efficient motor had torque and emission characteristics suitable for family car applications. It would find its way into a variety of Ford products in the years to come.
