Our daughter has a habit of naming the cars that pass through our lives. One look at a picture we sent her before getting it home, she named her Pearl! Driving Pearl takes you back, back to a time when craftsmanship and style meant everything. Feel the breeze, the effortless way Pearl floats down the street. Drive down Main Street and heads will turn, park her and there’s a good chance when you come back you’ll be answering questions and fielding requests. Pearl is stunning in every way, she makes us smile, make her make you smile!

A total of 6,360 Ford Galaxie 500XL 2-Door Convertibles were manufactured in 1966, a mere one tenth of the total 1966 production numbers of 597,000. This magnificent example is the end result of a 2013 rotisserie restoration.

The 390 CI V8 engine underwent a complete engine rebuild, is mated to Ford’s Cruise-O-Matic 3-speed automatic transmission, which is accentuated by a console-mounted shifter.

1966 Ford Galaxie 500XL Convertibles pushed the boundaries of style, luxury, and power. This finished piece will turn heads wherever it may land…cruising down the strip, sitting in your own personal showroom, winning awards at local car show. The skies the limit with this showstopper.
