Description

VERY COMFORTABLE DROP TOP CRUISER! 390 V8, AUTO, PWR STEER/BRKS W/ FRONT DISC

This sleek, roomy drop top has plenty to offer. With a great looking, original color draped over its exterior and a host of upgrades added to extract maximum power out of its era-correct powerplant, this 1966 Ford Galaxie 500 Convertible is a classic cruiser with few rivals, and its ready to provide some serious vintage mojo for its next lucky owner.

Ford focused their design efforts on the Galaxie the year before this '66 came out, giving it a broader and longer body than its predecessors and adding the distinctive stacked headlights you'll see here. It's a long, generously proportioned ride, with its size well distributed among its hood, cabin and trunk area. The extra length serves it well, giving this drop top a definite "Hop on in and bring your friends" good-times vibe. Its dark blue metallic shade is not just original, but a great looking color in its own right - deep and understated. This is also a well-aligned car - the hood sits nice and flush in between the fenders and you'll find even gaps surrounding the doors. In back, some nice modification work has been done to the tailpipes to give them a more prominent look than they started with, and their chrome tips peek out just the right amount below the rear bumper.

The blue interior looks very sharp. Both the buckets in front and bench seat in back are sporting new-looking covers that show virtually no signs of use and offer plenty of padding. As you look around at the space that surrounds you, it's very easy to picture yourself with your crew heading down the highway with the top down on your way to making some memories. Just beyond the woodgrain steering wheel, the dash area blends a few aftermarket components into the mix - an AutoMeter tach sits at the center, with a trio of additional gauges down below to assist the factory gauges in the cluster. The original AM radio sits in place, but a Pioneer AM/FM/CD player is mounted just below to offer more modern audio options. The trunk area in back is just as spacious as you would expect and even with a subwoofer mounted to one side, there's all kinds of room left over - no need to leave luggage behind on road trips, as it should all fit easily here.

The period-correct 390 cubic inch V8 sitting under the hood was already well-regarded for its substantial torque in factory configuration, and in this setting it benefits from a host of well-selected components that up its power game quite a bit further, including Edelbrock RPM heads and intake, a Holley 4-barrel carb, Summit Racing electronic ignition and fuel pump, an Accel distributor and Hooker headers. The chrome valve covers and air cleaner really add to its overall look as its sits in an engine compartment that's every bit as clean as it is spacious, surrounded by fresh hoses and properly routed wiring. It's a great sounding ride and its idle strikes a nice balance - with just a bit of lope to let you know that there's a special powerplant on board without being too jarring. It pairs with a 3-speed C6 automatic transmission known for its durability to make a very road-ready drivetrain - this classic Ford is very much ready to hit the streets as soon as you get it home. Power steering makes navigation easy, while 4-wheel power brakes, with discs in front, provide fade-resistant stops as it cruises on its 15" stock Ford rims outfitted with BF Goodrich Touring T/A tires.

Summer is about here, and this 1966 Ford Galaxie 500 Convertible has arrived just in time to help you make the most of it. Call today!
