The 1964 Ford Galaxie was a darling of NHRA Super Stock class and this one has the style to celebrate it correctly. There's even a triple-deuce 390 V8 for proper power. But as you look at the full style and features for this hardtop, it also shows there's far more of an all-around cruiser nature to this one.
This has the best of an era showcased on the exterior. The inner headlights are deleted to help cool the motor, plain red steel wheels save weight, a front tow bar mount, and .....
the lightweight fiberglass bumpers are painted silver for proper distinction. The red paint has the right mix of being attractive glossy without looking too fancy for a quarter-mile king. And this even has the full livery of a speedy machine, including Tasca Ford (which is like Yenko to Chevy fans.) And while the usual Galaxie 500s would have people marveling at the full-length side trim, this one is more about showcasing the aggressive Thunderbolt-style teardrop hood.
The full black interior looks good against the full red exterior. It's a very stock style setup where plenty of patina means plenty of desirable original trim. This is not stripped out to be a full-on race car, and so it feels like a comfortable full-size hardtop. But you also can't help but see that this one was made for a bit more speed with a radio delete and the addition of the under-dash auxiliary readouts.
The engine bay has a terrific tidy look. And pieces like the ribbed valve covers and matching air grabber. At the center is a 390 cubic-inch V8 with a triple-set of dual-barrel carburetors. It's a mighty V8, and it sings its powerful tune through a glasspack-style dual exhaust. Everything from the classic Firestone tires to the rear traction bars have the right old-school impression. While this enjoys giving you the right vintage power car feeling, this is also a more considerate total package. For example, you have upgrades like the aluminum radiator with an electric fan that helps keep the motor running cooler. And there's also power steering, power brakes, and a three-speed automatic transmission. So you have the look of a blacktop burner, but it can also be easy to cruise to cars & coffee.
A true quarter-mile king look with the right hint of cruiser feel. This is a terrifically distinct Galaxie that needs to go home with you. Call today!!!
