Classic Car Overview

Some cars are interesting all by themselves, and others are interesting for the stories they can tell, but the very best cars offer both. This 1968 Ford Galaxie XL fastback is, by itself, a very cool car, but if youre of the dare-to-be-different crowd, it will really stand out. Always a dry, southern car, this Galaxie has never needed any major metal surgery, and when the time came to refresh the finish, little more than a few hours of block sanding were required. Of course, they went with something subtle like 1968s Pebble Beige, and as you can see from the photos, this one was done pretty well. Its not perfect, of course, but it certainly has the right look for a car that just passed its 50th birthday and is ready for 50 more. The soft paint contrasts beautifully with the aggressive fastback shape, making a car thats at once elegant and brutal, which was surely Fords intent. The front end was completely redesigned in 1968, dramatically changing the looks of the car and taking it upscale and youd better believe most of the changes were aimed at improving performance (the Galaxie was Fords NASCAR weapon of choice). Those sculpted fenders that kick up behind the doors give the car an sophistication that only gets better the more you look at it. The finish is very good, and we love that it doesnt have the usual vinyl top, making it look very clean and sleek. The handsome interior offers accommodations for five, which is what full-sized cars were all about. Pretty parchment seat covers, door panels, and headliner look great with the darker carpets, making it feel upscale and well-designed inside. The instrument panel is a cool pod ahead of the driver with the gauges hidden behind a textured fascia and an AM radio perched up high. Auxiliary controls are integrated into a band of burled walnut that runs from end to end, and matches the insert on the steering wheel, which has a few cracks but still looks good. Factory A/C is a nice find and makes this an awesome cruiser, especially with that giant back seat thats comfortable enough for full-sized adults. One look in the gigantic trunk will convince you that someone truly loved this car, because its exceptionally clean and includes a full-sized spare and jack assembly. Power comes from a correct F-code 302 cubic inch V8, which makes plenty of torque and moves the fastback with effortless ease. An aluminum intake manifold and Holley 4-barrel carburetor replace the original Autolite 2-barrel setup so it runs great and offers a smooth idle and a great V8 burble from the twin tailpipes. Its not over-detailed, but it has a well-maintained look with proper Ford Blue on the engine itself along with a factory air cleaner with correct 302 decal on top. A big radiator keeps things cool and theres a brand new dual exhaust system underneath. The 3-speed automatic transmission shifts easily and gives it a smooth luxury car feel, and feeds a heavy-duty 9-inch rear. Check out the solid floors, new shocks, and power front disc brakes, too. Those very cool Magnum 500 wheels carry fat 235/70/15 BFGoodrich tires that give it a sporty look. This Galaxie is a very appealing and very unusual piece of luxury muscle, all at a very reasonable price. Call us today!
