1967 Ford Galaxie 500 XL 2 Door Hardtop This beautiful, 1 of 3 built in this paint and trim combo as per the Deluxe Marti Report, 1967 Galaxie 500 XL, has been redone in 2001 at the 75,000 mile mark with not only strength and durability in mind, but also a big emphasis on beauty. At the same time the engine was rebuilt and the body was treated to all new metal with the exception of the doors and half of the main shell. Nice straight lines, great gaps, all steel, chrome and vinyl, a beautiful example of a Ford classic that you can literally get in, turn the key and start the party. Exterior Candyapple Red adorns the exterior, and upon a closer glance shows with a few chips, touch ups, and a color mis-match repair on top of the drivers front quarter panel. One has to look very hard to find a few bubbles forming behind the paint on the lower end of the front fenders and drivers door, but they are there. The britework in front and in back with bumpers and grille as well as trim work remains bright and shiny. The bumpers remain straight and very clean, as is the front grille, and stacked front headlight bezels. Shiny window surrounds have new rubber trim inserted and are in very nice condition all framing tinted glass. The edge trim shows some patina, but is otherwise unremarkable. A black and stainless trim spear runs between the wheel wells of the car just above the rockers and meets up with the wheel house molding then continues on dressing the front and rear quarter panels.. All glass is clean and scratch free and on the expansive roof is a like new black vinyl top which adds a touch of class to this large and in charge car. 15-inch steel wheels with turbine style wheel covers are wrapped in medium width whitewall 205/75R15 tires from the 50th week of 2019. Rectangular tail lights are on the back showing the future of the Galaxy design. Meet George Jetson... Interior Going from the ground up, new black carpet covers all floor surfaces. The black vinyl bucket seats in front are showing nicely with no tears or rips and have maintained their shape. At first glance we think the passengers seat may have been swapped out, but after viewing the Marti Report we realize this is the not often seen optional reclining passenger bucket seat. The rear bench appears virtually new and matches the front buckets with pattern and texture. A wonderful center console, in black and chromed plastic and metal shows slight wear but is in good condition. A small glovebox, seat belt receivers and the T-handle shifter reside here. Of note, the 1st and 2nd gear designator tabs for the floor shifter have gone missing from the shifter insert. Factory gauges fill the dash in a thin horizontal band and just below resides a ribbed stainless panel holding various knobs, pulls, the factory AM/FM radio and the heater slides. A padded topper resides up high and is near perfect, having no sun damage or cracks. The door panels appear as new with padded vertical tuck and roll vinyl, some chrome dress up, and a padded armrest. A new headliner tops the interior off. Not to be overlooked is the speckle painted truck with its plaid liner and room for all your luggage plus a few of your friends. Drivetrain A rebuilt in 2001 390ci V8 is topped by a 2-barrel carburetor and bolted to a 3-speed automatic C6 transmission that shifts smooth as silk. On the back is a Ford 9 inch rear axle with 2.75 gears within. Overall, the engine bay is very clean and fully restored to look like it just left the factory floor. All new wiring, hoses, radiator, non corroded or rusted master cylinder and Ford Blue painted block and valve coverings along with the correct single snout air cleaner complete the snapshot of the bay. Undercarriage Looking underneath, a virtually rust free, (including surface rust), environment can be seen. Looking like a fresh light spray of undercoating was recently applied as you can see the overspray markings, but its all good as to any rust situation. The frame is very stable as is the junction of the body and the frame. We note some slight patina on the stamped floor pans but they also remain free from corrosion. Also, a newly installed stock style dual exhaust system is noted. Independent coil springs for the front, and a 4 link with coil springs on back provides the ride, and drum brakes are noted all around. Drive-Ability What can I say, lots of POWER when one presses the GO pedal ever so slightly! It might be the 390 cubes and the 2bbl working in unison, albeit very smoothly. Bias free panic stopping, smooth steering, and all is working nicely. An overall nice presentation, good running, smooth shifting, turn key 67 ready for more fun miles, right here at Classic Auto Mall. Solid! Cue the jazzy music and this car will not fold up into a briefcase when you enter Spacely Sprockets, however it will do a great job of adding bling to your driveway! 7N58H111844 7-1967 N-Norfolk, VA Assy Plant 58-Galaxie 500 XL 2 Door Hardtop H-390ci V8 2bbl 111844-Sequential Unit Number Classic Auto Mall is a 336,000-square foot classic and special interest automobile showroom, featuring over 850 vehicles for sale with showroom space for up to 1,000 vehicles.
