Vehicle Description

This 1965 Ford Galaxie 500 convertible is for all of those who like to standout in a tasteful and vintage way. It's sporty on the outside, elegant on the inside, and packs a nice V8 wallop under the hood.


The Ford Galaxie cars are really starting to come into their own on the classic car market. These were truly the full-sized Fords that followed the 1960s design idea of Lower Longer, and Wider as far as it could - even placing the headlights and taillights as far in the corners of the body as possible. This allowed for some seriously large chrome elements such as the wraparound bumpers and the grille that looks billet-style straight from the factory. The result was a design that was uniquely Ford and uniquely the 1960s. Adding to this style is the color package. The light blue has a nice look with a glossy finish that loves the sunshine, and yet, it's not so perfect that it'll make you nervous about driving it on any sunny day. And even when its gray outside, the snug-fitting white roof give this one the total appearance of a sunny Sunday. There are even dual aerials to add to this true cruiser style. Plus, the big dual exhaust tips and polished Cragar SS wheels are the perfect way to remind us all that this is the era of the sporty V8s.


If you like the look of the paint and roof combo as much as we do, then you'll really love the interior, too. With the flip of a switch, the roof powers down to show plenty of more bright white inside. So the full color package will remind you of a sunny sky with puffy cloud appearance no matter if the top is up or down. The Galaxie 500 is a big comfortable cruiser where everyone has plenty of room to spread out. The classic feel extends to everything on the two-tier dashboard, where the speedometer and AM radio up high where they're easy to see, and secondary items are part of a pod down below. But because you want to cruise this full-size Ford with family and friends, there is an AM/FM/CD stereo with USB input and Bluetooth mounted below the dash. It gives you more modern driving music without spoiling the vintage atmosphere.


Pop the hood and you'll see that callouts on the fenders were not lying. This car has its correct Z-code 390 cubic-inch V8. And if this was good enough to get those big/heavy Thunderbirds up and moving, it can be a real performer here. There's even a Holley four-barrel carburetor on top. Not only is it a powerful motor, but it fires up with the gusto of a strong heart. Good fundamentals like the belts, wires, and hoses reaffirm this feeling of good care. You even have a Champion aluminum radiator to help keep this V8 running cool. The three-speed automatic transmission, nice-riding suspension, and modern cruising tires with excellent tread keep this a weekend-ready drop-top.


Complete with owner's manual, this is a true classic cruiser with plenty of V8 zest. It makes for the right car for you to get your hands on right now. Call today!!!
