Description

CLEAN & STRAIGHT, #'S MATCHING 390, AUTO, FACTORY AIR, WIMBLEDON WHITE, CRUISER

In the early and mid-1960s, if you wanted big block muscle, the only place to get it was in a full-sized car. The ideal mixture of luxury and performance, this 1964 Galaxie XL500 packs big block power and factory A/C, as well as a matching-numbers driveline that's a lot of fun to drive.

A lifelong Arizona/Texas car, it's no surprise why this Galaxie 500 is finished in Wimbledon White, and today it's the ideal example of Ford's gentleman's express. The sloping rear roof was a recent addition to the Fairlane and Galaxie lineup, and helped as much on the NASCAR big ovals as it did in showrooms. The paint was done some years ago and still presents very nicely, with a nice, soft shine that is entirely appropriate to the era. You'll also appreciate the nicely preserved Galaxie 500 trim, with bumpers that have obviously been restored and a good shine on the stainless. Ford's jet-inspired taillights were still evolving in 1964, now enclosed in a very neat and tidy rear end, and those on this white hardtop are in excellent condition. Tinted glass is another good idea out in the Arizona heat, and the light green/gray tint on this car looks exactly right for the period.

The interior is unusual and rare code 80 White Crush vinyl buckets, and looking at the interior of this car, it wouldn't be surprising to learn that it has been fully restored. The seats are in excellent condition and thanks to correct materials, they'll probably look awesome for years to come, flanking a center console that's purely style for style's sake. The wide gauge cluster spans half the dash in front of the driver, and includes a massive speedometer and a fuel gauge, all with trick white faces that look awesome in the white interior. When you ordered air on your Galaxie 500, it looked like the under-dash unit found here, and in place of the the original AM radio lies a more modern classic restro sound AM/FM unit. In back, you'll find a cavernous trunk that shows some age, but no substantial rust or damage, suggesting that this has always been a dry southern car.

This car still packs its original Z code 390 cubic inch V8, which is topped by a 4-barrel carburetor and mated to a Cruise-O-Matic 3-speed automatic transmission. The tidy engine bay shows signs of maintenance, with the engine, transmission, and suspension having all been rebuilt a few years ago. Ford Blue on the block is dressed up with a chrome air cleaner assembly and matching FE series valve covers. Power brakes and steering are also part of the equation, and as a lifelong desert car, you know rust is a total non-issue underneath. The exhaust system gives the Galaxie an appropriate muted rumble without being excessive, a fact you'll appreciate with a rear end full of highway-friendly 3.00 gears. The original steel wheels wear wire wheel covers with spinners and 215/75/14 whitewall radials.

This lovely hardtop is the most desirable of the Galaxies except for perhaps the convertible, and you can't argue with its performance credentials. With lots of power options, it's a car that you can still drive every day, or save it for warm summer days when you want to feel like you're at the wheel of something special. Call today!
