1968 Ford Galaxie 500 Convertible is for all those who like to standout in a tasteful vintage way. This car is in good clean condition, ready for a nice weekend cruise-in but also gives you the opportunity to do some work on it. The car has always been garage kept. The 302 210HP V8 has only 125K miles, a rebuild carburetor and a new fuel pump. The color is original Meadowlark Yellow with a white convertible top. The interior is the most interesting factory color you will ever see. In 68 the Galaxie was available in no fewer than 13 configurations and the arguably most interesting of them all is this Nugget Gold Vinyl. Ford only sold 11,832 Galaxie 500 Convertible in 1968. The original purchase order shows that the previous owner bought this Galaxie in May 68 from Beverly Hills Ford Company in CA. The body is solid with some minor rust, it has a few blemishes as you can expect from a almost 50 year old vehicle. The power convertible top works great and is in fair condition. The interior shows some tears and the original carpet is in good condition. The chrome is shiny but shows its age in some spots. As a summary this Galaxie is NOT a project car, its a nice clean cruiser with a lot of potential ready to be taking on a nice weekend cruising with the top down.
