BELIEVED ORIGINAL 289 V8, AUTO, PWR STEERING, PWR BRAKES, MAGNUM 500 WHEELS.
Full-sized '60s luxury muscle is red hot in the market right now, and cars like this 1966 Ford Galaxie 500 hardtop are the reason why. Built with equal amounts of performance and comfort, full-sized cars like this can cruise cross-country effortlessly, and still dispatch lesser machines in the stop light grand prix.
The door tag says this one came from the factory in two-tone Ivy Green over Sauterne Gold and today this car wears a beautiful coat of that correct color combination. Laying flat on the straight sheetmetal, those earthy tones highlight each other nicely and show crisp reflections. All of the correct trim and emblems are present, giving it an authentic look while chrome bumpers grace the front and rear of the long car. The doors, hood, and trunk fit very nicely and shut with the authority you would expect from a late model European luxury automobile. Classic Magnum 500 wheels provide some muscular appeal and are wrapped in fresh white wall tires.
Inside, light ivy gold "Crinkle" vinyl and light ivy gold "Olympia" pattern cloth covers the front and rear bench for a very handsome look. The car underwent a restoration in 2003, however, the workmanship is so good and the materials are accurate that it definitely passes for a well-maintained original. The seats are firm and comfortable, with no splits or tears in the covers, and the matching carpets are excellent. A two-tier dashboard puts the speedometer and AM radio up high where they're easy to see, while the auxiliary and air conditioning controls are in their own pod just below. But for the sake of preserving the factory dash, an AM/FM radio and three Sunpro gauges measuring oil pressure, voltage, and water temperature have been mounted below.
Power comes from a 289 cubic inch V8, which powers the relatively lightweight Galaxie with ease. Dressed in Ford Blue with a black block and heads, it looks very period appropriate. It runs beautifully, typically firing up with a single turn of the key and idling with a smooth hum that fits the cars luxury/performance mission perfectly. Note the power steering and power brakes, which make this car a pleasure to drive, as well as the 3-speed automatic transmission which clicks through the gears cleanly.
This Galaxie 500 is a clean, honest car that will give years of happy motoring; it offers identical performance and more comfort than a Mustang, all for a fraction of the price. This is your chance if you've been looking for some muscular performance, classic looks, and luxurious comfort. Call today!
