1965 FORD GALAXIE 500 4DR, 39.963 ORIGINAL MILES. IN THE SAME FAMILY SINCE NEW.
MR Forrest Johnston in Toledo, Ohio bought this 1965 Ford Galaxie 500 from Tri Motors Sales for $3119.64 in 1965.
The first thing he did was to get seat covers installed over the front and rear seats and he also covered the new carpet. The covers are still there, protecting the brand new looking original carpet and original seats. The seat covers still look new even!
When Forrest passed away his brother kept the Ford and today his grand daughter owns the car. It has 39.963 original miles on it right now.
The car was ordered in a Twilight Turquoise with an interior in the same beautiful color.
He also got the 289 V8, Cruise O Matic transmission, Power Steering and Power Brakes, Padded dash, tinted glass and AM radio and everything works except the clock.
The Ford is still in 100% original condition. The paint shows some aging and there’s very, very little rust creeping out by the base of the left side front wheel arch molding, no holes just surface rust. If you want a show winner the car needs a repaint but if not you have a fantastic car that is ready to go.
The interior looks new still and the car is in original, never messed with excellent mechanical condition.
The Ford runs and drives probably as good today as it did when new in 1965, the engine purrs, the transmission shift perfectly, brakes, front end etc are all in excellent condition. It really is a pleasure to drive the Galaxie.
The Ford is ready to go as you see it in my pictures.
SINCE 1986 WE SELL AND SHIP WORLDWIDE, 33 YEARS AND COUNTING.

In a way, Briggs Cunningham was like the East Coast Carroll Shelby. He built race cars — even homologated a few. He had a Big-3 OEM deal at Le Mans, where his team won class. In another sport, Yachting, he commanded a sloop that won the America’s Cup. He didn’t need to be the salesman […]
For all his quirks, Henry Ford was a great American. He loved Americana. He gave the American middle class a new way to travel and in so doing, complete freedom of movement – affordably. He was friends with other great inventors, including Thomas Edison. Reluctantly, he helped Roosevelt beat the Axis powers in WWII as […]
