For sale in our Detroit showroom is this beautifull 1966 Ford Galaxie 500XL Convertible. The Galaxie was included in a design upgrade that debuted in 1965 with an all new design that featured a taller and bulkier body with stacked headlights. The upgrades also included a redesigned suspension which replaced the former leaf-spring rear suspension with a new three-link system including coil springs adding to the cars performance and handling. For 1965 the interior featured a new upgraded instrument panel and the introduction of the 2 key system. The factory upgrades are not all that is included on this 1966 Galaxie, as the car has had a great amount of restoration and logging only around 625 miles since its completion. This Galaxie convertible has a power-full 351 cubic inch Windsor motor that has been completely rebuilt with a Summit Racing short block and sounds amazing through the new exhaust system new in 2016. Backing the power plant is the original Ford AOD automatic transmission, and a 9” Ford rear end which was rebuilt with 3:73 gears to finish off the power transfer to the 500 Magnum rear wheels. This Galaxie definitely has the power to get up and go and also is a showpiece with its bright red colored finish that has an incredible shine, and the near perfect red vinyl interior that looks as good as the day that it left the showroom floor, and the new convertible top that functions flawlessly. This Galaxie also is a great handling car and a breeze to drive with the power steering and brakes, the suspension rebuild, and new wheel bearings all around. This 1966 Galaxie is a true beauty that has just the right mix of originality and street rod styling, and includes the performance and handling upgrades to make it a pleasure to cruise.
