1964 Ford Galaxie 500 Police Interceptor 2-Door Fastback
300hp 390ci big-block “Thunderbird Special” P-Code
Very cool 1964 Ford Galaxie 500 2-Door Fastback Police Interceptor for sale, believed to be 1 of just 42 built with this powertrain combination. Purchased new at BJ Motors in Roxboro, North Carolina on July 25th of 1964, this rare example is well preserved and is finished in Silver Smoke Gray with a black interior, has its matching numbers 300hp 390ci big-block “Thunderbird Special” P-Code Police Interceptor Package and 4-speed manual transmission as delivered new. It shows 68,962 miles, though we do not know if these are original. I am currently trying to locate previous owners to find out more about this special Galaxie and if successful will update accordingly.
The exterior shows well and is truly rust-free. The car was re-painted in its original Silver Smoke Gray and is straight and tidy. The trim, glass, and lenses are in good order and the overall exterior is quite nice. I went around with a weak magnet and it grabs all of the lower sections of the car with ease suggesting little or no filler at all. The undercarriage, inner rockers, and the rest are rust/damage free as well suggesting the mileage could be original. It rides on its stock rims with an older set of 235/70R15's both front and rear.
The interior shows well and is in very good condition throughout featuring its original Sun dash-mounted tachometer, AM Radio, heater, and clock. The upholstery, door panels, cards, rugs, and headliner look great and the car is very comfortable. I suspect that some if not most of the interior was refreshed at some point given the overall, very nice condition.
The matching number 300hp 390ci big-block “Thunderbird Special” P-Code starts and runs strong with plenty of power and no unpleasant noises or smoke. The condition of the engine compartment suggests it was carefully maintained and cared for and everything looks to be in good order. The handling, braking, and suspension are responsive and tight. The clutch is wearing and there is some chatter, otherwise, this is an excellent running and driving car. It has a newer fuel tank and exhaust system which sounds great.
With its rare powertrain, great color combo, and overall rarity, this Galaxie 500 Police Interceptor is an interesting, collectible classic Ford that looks to be in fine condition and ready to enjoy.
