1968 Galaxie 500
The Ford Galaxie was a full-sized car that was built in the United

We have a bright red 1968 Galaxie 500 convertible here at Adventure
Classics with a beautiful color combination of a red/white interior
and a convertible top.
Engine and Drivetrain
Our 500 is powered by the always powerful and reliable 390 cubic
inch FE 6.4 Litre V8 engine that had 265 horsepower and is paired
with a 3-speed automatic transmission.
It looks to be the original engine and makes good power and torque
with the engine bay being very nicely detailed, bright Ford Blue on
the engine, chrome open-element air cleaner, air conditioning,
power steering and power brakes, chrome valve covers, factory cast
iron exhaust manifolds, and it exhales through a dual exhaust
system out the back thru the chrome tips.
It is a great car for highway road trips and wears stock steel
wheels with hubcaps and fitted with more modern thin whitewall
The Galaxie has a great two-tone red and white split bench seat
interior with matching door panels, red dash with factory gauges
and aftermarket Targa stereo AM/FM radio and speaker system, red
carpeting and black floor mats.
There's room for six thanks to wide, comfortable bench seats front
and rear and nobody will complain about the lack of leg room
because this is a big car in every sense of the word.
Our 1968 Ford has red paint on the body that Ford made a bunch of
styling changed to that year including a different new grille with
headlights arranged horizontally on the long hood- short deck style
There's a lot to like in this big Ford ragtop 1968 Galaxie 500
convertible we have here at Adventure Classics. It is priced right
where it makes it an great entry-level convertible with big V8
power, room for six in the nicely preserved interior that you will
enjoy driving with the top down to every cruise night and car
