This 1968 Ford Galaxie XL fastback will impress you with its cool
hardtop style, even cooler A/C interior, and there's even a big V8
under the hood. It all makes for a sharp-looking coupe of
distinction that you're going to love taking for a drive.
Ford's Galaxie XL coupe had a new and radical face for 1968. The
look was downright sporty with headlights hidden behind the
full-width grille. The body design retained the kick-up at the
rear, which goes particularly well with this fastback roof.
Overall, this was arguably one of Ford's most attractive designs of
the 1960s because it perfectly blended elegance and performance. It
looks like this was given a restoration about 15 years ago, and the
idea was to be vintage and stylish all at first glance. You see
that in the factory-correct Medium Gold Metallic. It's a good color
to represent its era, and there's also a hint of modern clearcoat
luster. There's plenty of premium style in well-fitting body
panels, taut vinyl roof, and the bright chrome bumpers that
complement the car's form. But the pillarless hardtop profile and
Mag 500 wheels also deliver that right hint of muscle car style
that makes a fastback so desirable.
The interior continues this performance and luxury mix. After all,
bucket seats were a sporty option, but these are also wide and
plush enough for long trips. And the center console with horseshoe
shifter is something we love on muscle cars. This is a true cruiser
with the dual-spoke steering wheel giving you a terrific view of
the extra wide speedometer. Everything on the dash is in its
rightful place, and that includes useful features like a classic
AM/FM radio and working courtesy lights. But your favorite feature
will be the factory air conditioning that's still blowing cold.
After all, no matter if you have this full-sized coupe packed with
people, or you're just on a solo cruise, this premium Galaxie still
knows how to keep everyone comfortable.
While the exterior and interior are an attractive gold, this blue
oval coupe is pure blue in the engine bay. This Ford's 390
cubic-inch V8 has a very authentic presentation, right down to the
decals. It has the strong-running nature of good care, and the
solid feeling on the road comes from proper investments in the
suspension. Ford's premium Galaxie XL line was built for true
cruisers, and so this also comes with the right easy driving
features, like power steering, power brakes, and a three-speed
