Long, distinctive, and exceptionally original, a car like this 1972
Ford Galaxie 500 offers you a standout vintage coupe. After all,
with a premium look, time capsule A/C interior, V8 power, and less
than 37k actual miles on the odometer, this is the kind of classic
that is welcomed in any crowd.
These were the final years for Ford's famous Galaxie name, and
their look is quite distinctive today. Next year's bumper laws
would soon put an end to artful front ends like this one with
chrome surrounding a full-feature grille and inset headlights. You
don't see many of these around anymore, so it's even more
impressive to have a survivor-like appearance here. The
factory-correct red paint also shows the right signs of being the
factory application. So while it's not perfect, it wears its
originality with pride. And there really is a lot to love on this
long coupe. Shining chrome bumpers, full-length pinstriping, and a
well-fitting black vinyl roof are pure vintage premium that have
been well-respected over the decades. And we all love the look of
the classic Mag 500 wheels.
This car has barely averaged over 750 miles annually, and the
interior really shows it. The presentation is highly original and
exceptionally attractive. We especially love the vintage texture of
the two wide bench seats, and as a true full-sized coupe, this
Galaxie will seat six people with ease. The wood paneling has been
preserved on the doors and dash to the level that allows this to
retain its premium image. Ford's two-tier instrument panel puts all
the gauges up high and the secondary controls down low, but the
effect is very clean and driver-oriented. It's such a full vintage
cool package that you'll love everything from the CB radio to the
AM radio that's still there for display. This was also one of the
final years you could roll-down all the windows for a true
pillarless hardtop profile. And just to make sure you can enjoy
this to the fullest, the factory air conditioning has been
converted to modern R134a (will need servicing to blow cold).
Ford's robust 351 cubic-inch V8 provides plenty of power for the
big coupe. Crisply detailed in Ford Blue, it appears quite stock.
That means it's still ready to provide that effortless torque at
any speed that defined driving a 1970s American V8. It also floats
down the road like a good 70s machine should, and with a
three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power
brakes with front discs, this Galaxie 500 is a breeze to drive.
Preserved in all the places you want, this is a truly distinctive
classic. So when an attention-getting survivor like this is also
exceptionally affordable, you know you need to hurry to catch this
deal. Call today!!!
