1964 Ford Galaxie 500 XL

Ford's big Galaxie was luxury muscle before such a term even existed. This pretty 1964 Galaxie 500 hardtop proves the point with a big 390 cubic inch V8, n awesome color combination, nd a bucket seat interior that's about the coolest place you'll ever sit. Sleek and smooth, t's easy to love this big Ford coupe.Code B Pagoda Green is this car's original color, nd what it's wearing today isn't too far off, ut maybe a little more turquoise than green. It's a good look on something like the big Galaxie, aking it look a little less serious and more like the big luxury cruiser of the past. It's got a great shine that suggests that it has been repainted and the overall look is that of a car that's been loved its whole life, ncluding being driven as often as possible. There are a few touch-ups here and there, ut those super straight panels reflect well and there's no place for shoddy workmanship to hide. The quarters in particular are about a city block long, ut you can see the crisp, lear body lines and arrow-straight trim that all lines up just right, ndicative of a car that has never needed major surgery. Accessory fender skirts make it look long and low and fins had totally disappeared by '64 so it has a very clean, leek profile. Details like the neatly folded grille and fender ornaments make the Galaxie 500 special and all the brightwork is in good condition and shines up well.The code 87A Turquoise interior is just the way this car was ordered. The fresh two-tone vinyl upholstery is in fantastic shape, howing only very modest signs of use and correct patterns that are quite sophisticated for 1964. With bucket seats up front and a wide bench in back, here's room for the whole family and the wonderfully ornate door panels remind everyone on board that this was Ford's top-of-the-line model. The steering wheel has a simple horn ring that recalls the past and the silver-faced gauges are not only attractive, ut suddenly very much back in fashion. A center console is always a great find in a luxury-oriented car like this, nd the automatic transmission's shifter falls easily to hand. The original AM radio remains in the dash and plush carpeted floor mats were added to keep everything tidy. It also offers a massive trunk with both a correct plaid mat and a carpeted mat to really make it look complete.Ford's stout 390 cubic inch V8 was a favorite performance choice. Effortlessly smooth and torquey, ot to mention durable, t moves the Galaxie without working very hard and has a nice V8 burble from the twin tailpipes out back. Wearing chrome valve covers and an open-element air cleaner with reproduction badges, t has a performance look that's dominated by the big expansion tank up top. There's a 4-barrel carburetor under that air cleaner, o it starts easily and runs smoothly under any circumstances. Backed by a 3-speed automatic transmission and a 9-inch rear end with 3.00 gears inside, t's really at home on the highway where it can stretch its legs a bit. Power steering is probably mandatory on a car this size, nd the heavy-duty frame is in good shape so it feels substantial going down the road. Factory wire wheel covers are wrapped by a set of 235/75/14 whitewall radials that still have a lot of life left in them.Handsome, ast, nd fun to drive, his Galaxie is the kind of car that attracts big attention everywhere it goes.
