Vehicle Description

1965 Ford Galaxie 500 XL.

390 Convertible 

300 Horsepower 

427 Torque

3 On the Tree

6.4 Litre V8

Original “Born With”” Engine 

Ford websites put total production at 9,849 Vehicles .

Only 10% were 3 On the Tree,Manual transmissions.

Doing the math tells us only 984 of these engines were ever produced......

How many of these survived?       This is a RARE CAR.

                                                         When first purchased this car I was somewhat disappointed with it’s 

performance.After consulting with an expert mechanic who restored classic cars,I found out why.

     The engine needed to be replaced or completely overhauled.I was faced with a dilemma.

A crate engine would be “Brand New” and cost less than a complete overhaul.But where are you going to find a 

390-3 On the Tree,I had to restore it to it’s glory days.

    3 months later and 5 grand spent,I was very happy I saved it.

Being I was in the spending mood I decided to re-do all the seats,and this was the only liberty I took to change from being completely original.The seats are a custom look,Red&White with Galaxie 500 embroidered on the seats,both front and rear.I think it looks great!

Brand new convertible white rag top and new white boot cover.New red carpet thru-out.

Comes with custom car cover too.

This car is meant to be driven everyday.

On  scale of  1 to10 this car is not a 10,it is not a 9.It is in my opinion an 8.

The paint is good,but it can be better The chrome is good,but it can be better.

I have looked at several classic car websites and cannot find another original 390 3 On the Tree Convertible...
