For Sale: 1972 Ford Galaxie in Lavergne, Tennessee

Vehicle Description

Long, distinctive, and exceptionally original, a car like this 1972 Ford Galaxie 500 offers you a standout vintage coupe. After all, with a premium look, time capsule interior, and numbers-matching V8 power, this is the kind of classic that is welcomed in any crowd.


These were the final years for Ford's famous Galaxie name, and their look is quite distinctive today. Next year's bumper laws would soon put an end to artful front ends like this one with chrome surrounding a full-feature grille and inset headlights. Since you don't see many of these around anymore, it's great to have the presentation representing its era by looking quite premium. The factory-correct red paint was given a quality respray to make sure it continues to shine with pride. And there really is a lot to love on this long coupe. The shine of the classic Cragar SS wheels compliments the bumpers, and the body panels have a crisp style of good respect.


The red interior is highly original and exceptionally attractive. We especially love the vintage texture of the two wide bench seats, and as a true full-sized coupe, this Galaxie will seat six people with ease. The wood paneling has been preserved on the doors and dash to the level that allows this to retain its premium image. Ford's two-tier instrument panel puts all the gauges up high and the secondary controls down low, but the effect is very clean and driver-oriented. This was also one of the final years you could roll down all the windows for a true pillarless hardtop profile. And while the interior feels like a time capsule, you'll likely spot the well-paced AM/FM retro-style stereo with aux input. After all, a proper cruiser needs the right driving music.


Under the hood is Ford's robust 351 cubic-inch V8, and it's the numbers-matching unit for this Galaxie. It's a tidy setup that's built to drive. That's why you have newer plug wires, a newer battery, and an electric choke on the carb. While this looks very stock on top, when you look underneath, you'll spot some very cool upgrades. Hedman long tube headers give this some nice added pep, and the H-pipe dual exhaust has a nice V8 tune. And a set of electric cutouts can really let this V8 rumble with just the flip of a switch under the dash. It all makes for a bit of added fun to this classic. And the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes with front discs are all about making sure this hardtop is easy to cruise.


The Ford is reserved in all the places you want, and investments in the places you'll most appreciate it. And when a well-presented driver is also exceptionally affordable, you know you need to hurry to catch this deal. Call today!!!
