1964 Ford Galaxie
For sale: 1964Ford Galaxie 500 convertible,dry western car from the high desert of Montana, land of the sagebrush and prickly pear cactus. I purchased the car from a local older gentleman in his 80s. It has been stored inside for the last 30 years,and used on sunny summer days.It's a nice cruiser, a classic convertible for the price of a plain vanilla Mustang coupe. Great car forweekend shows/cruise nights or just taking the wife to the Steak & Shake. I'll do my best to describe it below:
Exterior: Nice driver condition, presents well. One repaint in the original Wimbledon white, not Pebble Beach concours quality, but shines well and no major flaws. A few chips and scratches from use. No body rustI can find on or underneath the car, and I know where to look. This is arid country with about 10 inches totalmoisture per year, and sand, not salt,isused on the roads.There are pics in the linkedPhotobucket albumof all the usualrust-prone spots on these cars,andother than a small spot on the rearbumper, I can find no evidence of corrosion.I even pulled up original jute trunk matfor pics to show solid trunk floor.Original top isin goodcondition with no tears or holes,back window is cloudy though.Trim is in goodshape with no major pitting, one headlight bezel is dented and back bumper could use a rechrome - it is scratched and has a rust spot at the bottom edge. Glass is good. Overall good looking car that draws a lot of compliments.
Interior: All original in good condition with no major issues,thanks to long term inside storage. Driver seat has a few small cracks as shown in the backrest. Original carpet, door panels, etc all in good shape. Dash is surprisingly good with only a few small cracks. Nice overall survivor.
Mechanical: Starts, runs, and drives out well with originalnumbers and date code correct289, and cruisomatic transwith nonoticeable leaks or smoke or noises.When I got the car I took it to a professional mechanic and had aservice and inspection performed. The carhas ALL new brakes including master cylinder, wheel cylinders, shoes and drums turned. Also did afull transmission service. Tires look great with plenty of tread and no cracks. Original mufflers need to be replaced. Does need carb tuning, it's cold blooded off idle, but it's ready to drive and enjoy.
Pricing/Misc: Hagerty books the average value of this car at $24,400. I got a good deal on the car,andI set the reserve accordingly at under $9000, less than the price of a plain vanilla Mustang coupe. Overseas bidders in Europe or Australia are welcome, provided you can meet the terms. Thanks and good luck!

You are welcome and encouraged to personally inspect thecarprior to bidding.I'm not a dealer, I don't do this for a living, I'm an enthusiast. If you'd like any detailed photos of a specific area of the car, just ask! I have many photos of it but will be glad to take more if needed. Please ask any questions you like before bidding. You will be answered quickly and honestly.Transport isreadily available, and definately cheaper than fixing rust on an eastern tetanus car. Montana title isclear with no liens.Runs well, but flying in and drivingit home isn't advisable. This is a rural state with a long way between towns and cell service is spotty. After the sale, I can store the car for up to 30 days free, after that $100 per month storage will be due. Buyer needs to get insurance as soon as car is paid for as I will cancel mine at that time.
