One of the best eras in classic car motoring is when we had plenty
of V8 power placed inside a long and sleek pillarless hardtop that
was built for cruising. And this 1966 Ford Galaxie 500 really knows
how to represent it all. The ideal classic look is finished off
with slick paint, a bucket seats interior, and four-on-the-floor.
Plus, you'll spot the right investments that keep this one tuning
heads and riding strong.
What makes this coupe look so great is the quality of its
condition. There was a big investment in the factory-correct
Emberglo Metallic to give this copper-like paint a true precious
metal impression. And of course, it would never look this good if
all the sheetmetal were not in top condition. This was the dawn of
the muscle car era, and the white pinstripe loves to highlight
these forceful lines that draw added attention to the rear. Plus,
the upgraded Billet Specialties wheels have a 18/20 inch front/read
stagger to let those polished alloys further highlight where all
the power is delivered to the pavement. More of this expert mix of
vintage and upgraded is seen throughout the car - everywhere from
the classic chrome bumpers to the sharp-looking tinted windows.
You're going to want to leave all the windows down on this
pillarless hardtop just so people can get a better look inside. The
light parchment interior has a quality look in the details, like
the intricate door panel trim, plush carpeting, and the comfort
weave inserts in the seats with a detailed tan pattern. It makes
for a nice atmosphere to share this spacious coupe with family and
friends. But you don't need any of them to enjoy this classic Ford.
It's a driver-oriented setup with bucket seats, large Stewart
Warner auxiliary readouts, and a column-mounted Sunpro tach. And we
know you'll love resting your right hand on that tall Hurst
shifter. The dash retains plenty of stock pieces, including the AM
radio that's still on display. But your real driving tunes are an
upgraded experience thanks to a cleanly installed AM/FM/CD stereo
with aux input.
Pop the hood and you'll see this X-code coupe correctly has a 352
cubic-inch V8. It has powerful upgrades like a Holley four-barrel
carburetor, Edelbrock intake, aluminum radiator, and headers
feeding an H-pipe dual exhaust. And the four-speed manual
transmission puts you in firm control of this enhanced V8 and its
rumbling soundtrack. The undercarriage photos show fresh
components, including the bushings and ball joints. It all gives
this a nice ride. Plus, there are the right driving features, like
power steering, front disc brakes, and grippy ZR-rated tires.
Complete with owner's manual, this is the ideal hardtop classic
with all the right investments. So don't let this Galaxie end up in
someone else's garage, call today!
