For Sale: 1964 Ford Galaxie in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Denver is proud to offer this This 1964 Ford Galaxie (chassis 4P66R126086) is described as an original R-code car with a correct center-oiler 427 with a low-rise intake and dual-650cfm Holley carbs, driving a posi-equipped 4.11 rear through a 4-speed top loader. A claimed "total frame-off restoration" saw the car repainted in correct Rangoon Red with just one small blemish noted in the ad. Chrome and stainless appear excellent, and the interior looks great in new red vinyl. Manual four-wheel discs and electric power steering are nice upgrades, but the engine is clearly the star of the show. The seller says performance isn't disappointing, and even accounting for modern concessions to safety and drivability, that sounds like an understatement. Restyled for 1964, the Galaxie had fresh body lines with a proven powertrain punch for those who knew how to work the options sheet. Presented here in near-ideal spec, the car presents very well including sheet metal, trim, brightwork, glass and so on. Check out the discreet 427ci emblems buried way down on the front fenders. Wearing the same roof line as the special 1963 1/2 Galaxie, the 1964 model boasted otherwise all-new body lines and huge rocket exhaust-inspired taillights.The interior looks fresh with new upholstery throughout. The factory shifter rows gears in the top loader 4-speed and Rally-Pac gauges (as more commonly seen on Mustangs) are a very nice addition. Interestingly, that big wheel is now backed with electric power steering (R-codes weren't offered with factory assistance). Additional auxiliary gauges are a smart addition. The 427 was Decked, align honed, and the rotating assembly balanced, its rated at 425 HP and 480 lb. ft. from the factory. A solid lifter Comp Cams bump stick boasts a 224 duration at .050 and .540 lift (less duration but more lift than stock). Stainless steel 1.75 rocker arms are a nice upgrade, and Jet Hot-coated factory long-tube exhaust manifolds with cut-outs dump into a 2.5 exhaust with Flowmaster mufflersThe underside looks very clean, and all the ball joints, bushings, and bearings are said to be new. Four-wheel non-power discs are another smart upgrade and can be removed to put back to "stock" with NO modification, and the 9 rear is loaded with posi and 4.11:1 gear.DO NOT miss your opportunity to own one of Ford's rare factory sleepers that set the automotive world on its ear and left us begging for more!
