Full-size Ford is the popular term for a long-running line of Ford vehicles which have been produced in North America with a large degree of similarity since the Model T in 1908. Ford sedans of the past have major mechanical and cultural differences from the American full-size lineage. For the 1935 model year, the Ford lineup was powered exclusively by a V8 engine. Styling changes introduced the first integrated trunks on sedan models and suspension changes increased interior room. For the first time since 1949, the 1957 Ford lineup was built on an all-new chassis; a new frame allowed for the use of lower-mounted bodies.
In 1960, the subjective term of full-size Ford came into its own, stemming from the 1960 introduction of the compact Falcon. The sedan delivery and two-door station wagon body styles, in a long decline, ended their production after 1960. In 1962, the Ford sedan lineup was expanded further, as the Fairlane nameplate was used for the company's first intermediate-sized car. For 1973, the Custom 500, Galaxie sedan, LTD, and station wagons were given an all-new body. In response to federal regulations, the front ends were fitted with large 5 mph bumpers; they would be fitted to the rear for 1974.
Necessitated by federal fuel economy standards, the full-size Ford lineup underwent downsizing for the 1979 model year. The LTD Crown Victoria became the sole full-size cars, while the LTD nameplate took over for a facelifted version of the slow-selling Granada sedan. Styled like a larger version of the Taurus, the Crown Victoria borrowed a nameplate from the mid-1950s Ford lineup. Many features, such as four-wheel disc brakes, ABS, and dual airbags were all-new, and the Windsor V8 was replaced by the Modular V8, the first overhead-cam V8 in an American full-sized sedan.
