The 427 powerplant in the R-Code is capable of 480 pound feet of torque and neck snapping power which the factory estimates a mid 12 second quarter mile! The 427 engine option was intended to replace the 406 that Ford was using at the time for NASCAR applications was built to utilize the maximum displacement of 7 Liters that NASCAR allowed. All this power is translated through a be This gorgeous Galaxie is dressed in Corinthian White and only clocks an impressive 1,500 miles since it was restored.
