This 1964 Ford Galaxie 500 is a full-size hardtop with some serious
style. And since there's a big V8 under the hood and an upgraded
suspension, it really makes for an awesome cruiser.
The sloping rear roof of the special code 63B fastback might have
made the car more attractive, but it's true purpose was better
aerodynamics on the track. And this mix of both striking and speedy
seem to be amplified on this example with a lowered suspension. In
fact, everything on this car looks like it was meant to inspire a
sporty feeling. The grille has a sleek wave-like form, the trim
streaks down the side like it's the trail of a rocket, and the rear
bumper contours around taillights that look like afterburners. It's
all set against the factory-correct Dynasty Green. You may choose
to update the color or wheels or add your own personal touch. But
regardless, there is just something quite striking about how this
classic is presented today.
The factory-correct turquoise interior is a nice harmonizing color
with the exterior. Pieces like the door panels and upholstery seem
to have been refreshed later in life, and they used a correct
style, right down to the bright trim. This one is equipped how you
want it with the radio upgraded to a retro-style AM/FM unit that
gives you a classic look but modern convenience. There are even
provisions for air conditioning (the main components seem to be in
place, but it will need to be serviced and hooked up.) And this
just seems to have the right atmosphere where you can roll down all
the windows on this pillarless hardtop, grab the classily thin
steering wheel, and hit the gas to comfortably cruise all day
Pop the hood and you'll see that callouts on the fenders were not
lying. It's the correct Z-code 390 cubic-inch V8. This optional
"Thunderbird" powerhouse looks great dressed in gold on the valve
covers and a matching air cleaner. It fires up readily as the V8
inhales deeply through a Holley four-barrel carburetor. It exhales
with a nice tone out of the Flowmaster dual exhaust. This was built
to be nice out on the road. And so you have upgrades everywhere
like the Champion aluminum radiator w/electric fan to help keep
this running cool. And the modern QA1 shocks give this a confident
ride. Plus, the three-speed transmission, power steering, power
brakes, and front discs make for a great all-around driver.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual and title
documentation. You're looking at a full-size coupe that has both a
speedy look and a powerful heart. Call today!!!
