The affordable price on this 1966 Ford Galaxie 500 Convertible is
already a major attraction. But then you realize that this sleek
drop-top also gives you a big 390 V8 and four-on-the-floor, and it
really gets you thoughts going on this full-size bucket seat
It's hard not to love the mid-60s Galaxies. The people at Ford made
sure that their full-sized car was represented well with cool
design touches like placing the headlights and taillights as far in
the corners of the body as possible. That way everything looked
stretched to the max. This allowed for some seriously large chrome
elements such as the wide bumpers, and the grille that almost looks
billet-style straight from the factory. So we like that the
brightwork package remains so complete and quite clean over a half
a century later. Even the correct-style wheel covers are still in
place. The white paint with black convertible top is a timeless
color combo. It's the right condition for those who like to drive
their classics, and as you keep looking at this one, you'll see
that's exactly what this was made to do.
With the flip of a switch the roof powers down to reveal a truly
distinct red interior. This full-size Ford has plenty of room for
family and friends. Plus, there are nice details, like the
button-top seatback and the color-matched convertible boot cover.
And just like the exterior, the interior is quite complete right
now, but the value price also leaves room in your budget for any
personal touches you may want to make. And this one is set up to be
a driver's machine. You get great stock features, like the front
bucket seats and center console. This is joined by the upgraded
sports steering wheel. And we all love the look and feel of
There is the unmistakable look of Ford power when you lift the
hood. After all, the blue of the block, valve covers, and big air
grabber are pretty much radiating from within the dark engine by.
It's a great way to show off the mighty 390 cubic-inch V8. The
motor inhales deeper with a Holley four-barrel carburetor, and the
Flowmasters help give the dual exhaust a nice tune. And you get to
have complete control over it all thanks to the upgrade to a
four-speed manual transmission. Plus, power steering and power
brakes are part of a driving package that reminds you the Galaxies
were easy cruisers, too.
This is a drop-top stick-shift V8 Galaxie offered for quite a nice
price. So you know it's the kind of deal that doesn't come around
too often. Don't miss out, call today!
