1965 Ford Galaxie 500 Restomod, We looked for a rust free straight car prior to our build and found this car that you in front of you. This Galaxie has been re bodied on to a 2004 Mercury Marauder that had 71000 miles on it, it is the 32 valve motor and runs extremely well, this car is excellent for anyone looking for the status of a vintage car but would like all of the reliability and conveniences of a new car. It took a little of one year to do this conversion and close to $60,000 dollars.
Exterior- Stock rust free body, very straight, good paint on it not new show quality paint there are a few chips and a some blisters on the rear quarter panel, all the sheet metal is original and still retains the date code stamps as seen in some of the photos in the channel rails for both front and rear, bumpers have been re plated, upgraded hid lights, and American torques thrusts added to clear the front and rear ABS brakes.
Interior- The body was transplanted on the marauder so there is the Marauder complete dash, seats, center console, and steering wheel. All gauges, lights, cruise control, Cold AC, Steering wheel controls and stereo are all working, even form the steering wheel controls. Power seats for driver and passenger. Excellent headliner, stock original door panels.
Motor and Suspension- 2004 Mercury Maraduer 32v motor w matched automatic trans, four wheel ABS brakes and full modern 2004 Mercury suspension, runs outstanding, a pleasure to drive, lots of torque, great sound, and incredible stopping performance.
