SMOOTH RUNNING 390CI MOTOR, SUPER SLICK BODY, NICE GOLD PAINT, RIDLER WHEELS
This 1964 Ford Galaxie 500 is the king of the street sleepers. Beneath the elegant color is a slick fastback roofline and a potent 390 under the hood. It's a true factory muscle car before there were muscle cars.
What makes this coupe look so great is the quality of its condition. The gold paint gives a true precious metal impression thanks to the generous metal flake and the luster of modern clearcoat. And of course it would never look this good if all the sheetmetal were not in top condition. The white painted roof gives this a convertible-style appearance, and the pillarless hardtop body backs this up with the same wind-in-your-hair-experience. You'll also appreciate the nicely preserved Galaxie 500 trim, with bumpers that have obviously been restored and a good shine on the stainless. The fastback might have been built to help with NASCAR aerodynamics, but all the trim was still inspired by the jet age, including the chrome fins on the front fender, and of course, the afterburner taillights on the very tidy rear end. But one piece that truly modern are the Ridler wheels. They have a staggered size for an aggressive appearance that hints at the performance in the engine bay.
The interior has deep black seats with contrasting light piping. Completing this midnight effect are the pristine door panels, dash, and carpet. All of this seems to be part of an investment in keeping this coupe looking quite nice. Of course like any good 1960s car there's plenty of bright trim to make this dark interior shine. The driver gets the original premium chrome ring wheel. Beyond that is the wide gauge cluster that spans nearly half the dash. It includes a massively long speedometer flanked by two barrel style gauge clusters. While the whole package looks thoroughly factory original, there is one part that is an interesting upgrade. The radio might appear period correct, but its actually an AM/FM/cassette with digital tuner, so it's much more adaptable to more modern music players.
Pop the hood and you'll see the large a 390 cubic-inch "Thunderbird" V8. Dressed with stunning gold Thunderbird valve covers and a custom pinstripe air cleaner, the way it matches the exterior color will always be a hit at the car shows and cruise-ins. A motor this size has no trouble giving this full-size Ford some real get-up-and-go, and the dual exhaust makes a powerful sound without losing this car's cruising attitude. Plus, this Galaxie's three-speed transmission, power brakes, and modern General G-Max tires make the total experience quite comfortable going down the road. So this coupe is the complete package of fast with class.
This is old school luxury and power at its finest. It provides muscle car fun and room to carry everyone. With a presentation like this, and a value price, we don't expect this car to stay in our showroom long. Call today!!!
