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 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!!!
