This is a rust free Kentucky car, believed to have 65,000 original
miles. Restored about 5 years ago, the quality is better than most.
It has a beautiful appearance, factory red/red. Mechanically it is
in excellent condition, it runs, drives and functions really well.
Everything works except the squirters. The clock even works!
EXTERIOR: Rust free original metal. There's no bubbles, cracking or
damage. It is absolutely straight from every angle, the body gaps
are spot on. Repainted it's original Rangoon red and it is polished
out like glass. Even the door jambs are painted real slick. The
bumpers have new chrome. The spears on the fenders and hood have
been replaced, new deluxe mirror. The grill, side moldings and tail
panel are very nice original. The white convertible power top was
replaced recently, it looks new. It has wire wheel hubcaps with
spinners on radial tires.
INTERIOR: Factory red interior! This is one of my favorite
interiors of that era. The door panels are so beautiful I would
hang one on the wall in my office. It's an XL which is like Chevy's
Super Sport so it has the bucket seats with a center console. Down
on the floor the carpets have been replaced and it has the original
Ford rubber floor mats. The seats have new cushions so they feel
nice and firm. New upholstery front and back with chrome strips.
The aluminum side covers are good originals. It has the optional
padded dash. The instrument panel and console look very nice. The
factory radio and clock work. Interior lights work. The visors have
been replaced. The door panels, armrests and window cranks look
ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Rebuilt 390-300 hp with a 4 barrel. It runs
fantastic, smooth and responsive. It was upgraded from a 353. The
firewall and under the hood is painted slick gloss red. The engine
bay is painted smooth satin black. The motor looks spotless, it has
the correct air cleaner and valve covers with reproduction decals.
The power brake system was upgraded, has a dual reservoir master
cylinder. It also has power steering. Everything looks tidy and
proper. New battery.
TRUNK COMPARTMENT: This big trunk is rock solid and is detailed up
beautifully. The paint under the trunk lid and the jamb are just as
slick as the outside. The weather strip is new. It has a new
complete liner kit including the side panels. It also has a spare

UNDERSIDE: New front suspension components. The power steering
control valve was just rebuilt. 4 new shocks. The brakes were
recently redone. The fuel tank and straps look recently replaced.
It has a dual exhaust with cherry bomb style mufflers. The floors
are completely rust free and appear to be all original metal. I
don't see any patches or rot anywhere, even the lower inner quarter
panels are beautiful. It has been cleaned up and sprayed with a
light factory type undercoat. Looking up at the motor it is still
spotless. It has a smooth shifting Cruise-o-matic trans and 3.00
gears in the rear end.
This car comes from a real good seller. His cars are always well
sorted, turn key ready. I think it has exceptionally nice fit and
finishes. I look at a lot of cars and it's better then most
Galaxies I've seen.
