The Galaxie is a full size car built by Ford from 1959 1974. The second generation which was released in 1965 included an all new design featuring vertically stacked dual headlights, suspension was upgraded by replacing the leaf spring rear suspension with a three-link system with coil springs and it also received a new instrument panel. This particular example was pulled out of a barn in 1998 by 2 guys who decided to partner up and restore this car to its former glory. In 2011 one of the partners bought out the other so the title transferred at that time but it has technically been in the same owners hands for 20 years now. When the partnership was dissolved in 2011 the current owner had the top end of the 390 engine rebuilt which included hardening the heads for unleaded gasoline. It is believed that this is the original engine but obviously we cannot confirm that. The original Cruise-O-Matic 3 speed automatic transmission still shifts clean and crisply. At that same time the engine was gone through it also received a new dual exhaust, new brakes, new shocks, new struts, new brake lines, new gas lines, a new gas tank and new interior carpeting. It was repainted in its original color of Wimbledon White 20 years ago so you will notice a couple of spots where some patch work was done prior to painting. The underbody and trunk are clean with no holes or soft spots and the trunk has a new liner. It has been upgraded with a custom sound system that consists of an Alpine stereo under the seat, a 5 channel Kicker 1000 watt amp, a 10 Bazooka bass tube, 6X9s in enclosures for the rear and 4 speakers in the dash that sounds awesome. The original stereo is still in the dash so it looks 100% stock. There are less than 1,000 miles since the mechanical overhaul and everything is working as it should. You can have your choice of the original 15 rims with hub caps, the optional 20 chrome rims or negotiate us including both sets. As a solid # 3 car we would appraise this car at $25,750 based on the current N.A.D.A. values. We are serious about selling it and have priced it accordingly so if you could see yourself cruising in this classic you better pick up the phone before someone else does!
