1964 Ford GalaxieSelling my 1964 Ford Galaxie 500 with a beautiful patina.
A little history about this car.
My uncle Richard Johanson owned the car since it was new. He was an avid motorsports fan and great mechanic. When his son Chris Johanson (yes the famous artist) turned 16 it became his car. He drove the car for years until the oil pump failed. The car was parked for about 15 years and was then given to me when my uncle was failing his Leukemia treatments. My shop Blu808 Motorsports spent the next 2 months rebuilding the car (list below) and gave it back to him for Christmas at their annual Christmas party in 2014. He was ecstatic and overcome with emotion. It was a great day for everyone and well worth the work. Unfortunately he lost his battle with cancer and gave the car back to me. I currently have too many vehicles and need to let this one go.
No reserve auction. Feel free to message me any questions.
The entire car was gone through and rebuilt in November 2014 and has been sitting in storage since. Recently brought out of storage and tuned up last month (Dec).
I have $11,000 worth of receipts for work and parts that were installed then. The has been driven about 50 miles since the build and drives excellent.
