1966 Ford Galaxie 500

Lower, ider, nd longer is how Detroit made cars in the '60s, nd this 1966 Ford Galaxie 500 is arguably the best way to show that off. This coupe is big, right, nd has a powerful V8. But the most impressive part is that this whole package is much more affordable than its exceptional condition suggests it could be.It's hard not to love the mid-60s Galaxies. The people at Ford made sure that their full-sized car was represented well, ith cool design touches like placing the headlights and taillights as far in the corners of the body as possible, o everything looked stretched to the max. This allowed for some seriously large chrome elements such as the full-length side moldings, ide bumpers, nd the grille that almost looks billet-style straight from the factory. But take a closer look at all this brightwork. All the major elements and even the right details, ike the hood ornament, ave all been rechromed. Now this big American can shine as bright as the day it left Ford's Norfolk, irginia factory. The bold red paint not only gives this a commanding presence on street, ut we think it does a great job of emphasizing the sporty style of this pillarless hardtop fastback body. Combine this with the removable fender skirts, nd the profile of this large coupe is downright sleek. When a vintage car is cherry red on the outside, e all know the best interior color is a deep dark black. That's why there are new seat covers, ew carpeting, nd a replaced dash panel, o make sure that this one gets plenty of attention at the car shows. But beyond just appearance, ou know you have the versatility to take everyone for a ride in this Galaxie 500, ith its wide split front bench, nd spacious rear bench seating. And, veryone is comfortable, hanks to features like the factory heat/defrost, nd upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo that's hidden below the dash so not spoil the interior's vintage appearance. The driver gets to experience classic American motoring with the intricate design of the vintage steering wheel, nd beyond that is the original speedometer that's so wide it seems to need its own zip code.Pop the hood and you'll see that callouts on the fenders were not lying. This correctly has an X-code 352 cubic-inch "Interceptor Special" V8. It has a four-barrel carburetor, nd quite nice sounding dual exhaust, o you'll never be have to be without passing power. But really this is the kind of car you can enjoy at a much more leisurely pace. It's a power steering coupe with a three-speed Cruise-O-Matic transmission. It rides nicely with modern Cooper Trendsetter tires on the bright vintage wheels. So, ome of your happiest moments will likely be the trips in between the car shows and cruise-ins.Powerful, eautiful, nd affordable this Galaxie 500 has all the right earmarks for an investment, ut really you're just going to have fun driving it...that is, f you're quick enough to snatch up this deal.
