Classic Car Overview
1964 Ford Galaxie $20,995
The 500 XL is rarefied air in the Ford world. Its the top trim for the full-size, so there is some nice prestige and rarity to go along with this. In fact, the hardtop sedan was the rarest of the 500 XL series of this year a sign that most other sedans were lower-grade family haulers and salesman callers. But, this one has been allowed to remain quite original because a premium car usually goes to premium customers who know how to appreciate the finer things. Thats also why this one looks so great today, and thats no small feat. After all, 1964 was the intersection of the chrome era and jet age. So this one has a ton of great details, like the rocket-inspired full-length side trim, gunsight fender ornaments, and afterburner-style taillights. Its complete and original right down to the Thunderbird 390 logos on the fenders. In fact, the only piece that doesnt seem factory-direct is that we know the blue was upgraded at one time, and thats just to make sure the paint has enough luster to keep up with all the rest of the brightwork.
Also, a secret to the deeper blue exterior is that it coordinates so nicely with the two-tone blue interior. Lets face it, people are always sticking their head into hard tops, and so you want a car thats a full uniform package like this. But more than just great colors, this level of care is fantastic to see in the top-of-the-line, full-sized Ford. Theres plenty of great bright trim incorporated into the weave of the door panels and seats to makes this a very cool place to send some time. Bucket seats are rarity in these family-style Galaxies, and so youll really enjoy the individual comfort that even comes with a stylized center console. The three-spoke steering wheel with bright inner trim is a vintage Ford favorite, and so is the long horizontal speedometer flanked by the round gauge pods. As you gaze across the dash, you realize everything is in remarkably well preserved condition, and best of all, the air conditioning is still pumping out cold air, so you can stay cool while showing off your cool pillarless hardtop sedan.
Pop the hood and youll see that callouts on the fenders were not lying. This is the car has its original Z-code 390 cubic-inch Thunderbird V8. Dressed with stunning gold Thunderbird valve covers and a matching air cleaner, its ready to be shown off today. This big block is the ideal early 60s powerplant, both brawny and refined, making the performance seem almost effortless. It fires up easily thanks to a rebuild of the original Autolite four-barrel carburetor, and the newer dual exhaust really hints at the muscle car era that was just around the corner. In fact, speaking of muscle machines, the original four-speed manual means you are in complete control of this big V8. It turns this car show stunner into a true Saturday night sleeper. And even when just cruising, the power steering and power brakes make this a fine choice.
Complete with owners manual, this is a premium affordable classic with all the right moves... and thats why we know it will be moving out of our showroom soon, too. Call now!!
