With excellent red color inside and out and a big 390 V8 under the hood, this 1964 Ford Galaxie 500 convertible knows how to be a true classic cruiser. And the overall impression of this one lets you know it's ready for you to create an even more personalized classic.
The trim tag says this is a factory-correct Rangoon Red car. The pictures show you that this one is quite attractive, but it's also one that won't ever make you think twice about breaking in some new asphalt. So, it's a .....
driver-quality car, which means it's driver-ready. And that's the core fun of this classic. The Galaxie 500 is a premium full-size Ford. So this one loves to show off its size and style with the wave-like grille, sweeping full-length side trim, afterburner-style tail lights, and wraparound chrome bumpers. And there are the right touches of vintage elegance, like the rear fender skirts, white convertible top, and correct wire wheel covers.
While the white convertible top gives this Ford distinction, when it goes down, it reveals an even more attractive style. After all, the complete red package inside and out makes you see this as a full red-blooded American classic. This has all the correct classic details you love, like the vintage steering wheel, stylized chrome running across the dash, and a color-matched convertible boot. And there's something terrific about two wide rows of bench seats and a ton of legroom when you almost can't believe everyone is this comfortable in a convertible.
The big 390 cubic-inch motor filling the engine bay was one of the best mixes of block size and displacement of its era. With a four-barrel carburetor on top, a motor of this size has no trouble giving this full-size Ford some real get-up-and-go. And the sound of the dual exhaust is deep yet dignified - an ideal all-day tune. Since this is still meant to be a true cruiser, you also have good anytime-driving features, like the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes.
There's a lot of potential in this car. You may want to give it a tune-up to unlock even more power from the big motor. Maybe you want to upgrade the finish to bring out more of the cherry glow. Or it would be nice to restore the undercarriage with modern suspension components. These are all the kinds of projects you dream about when you have a drop-top boulevard king like this in your garage Call now!
