Model Overview

History of the 1969-1974 Ford Galaxie

Given that buyers weren’t considering performance as much as before, the new 1969 Galaxies emphasized luxury and styling was redone with little carried over. The Galaxie was settling in to middle-age and starting to show it. 1970 cars were mere facelifts, and 1971 through 1974 cars were touched up here and there, and improved where possible. But they were mostly changed due to onerous new Federal regulations, which did nothing to improve performance or economy. In fact, by this era, no six-cylinder full-sized Fords were even available. 1969 saw the last of the Galaxie convertibles, and 1971 saw the last of the LTD convertibles. As usual, convertibles are most collectible, with two-door hardtops following, then station wagons and sedans.
