Description:

1965 Ford Galaxie

BEING OFFERED IS A 1965 GALAXIE 500 2 DOOR HARDTOP. THIS IS A LIFE-LONG SOUTH CAROLINA CAR THAT WAS BOUGHT FROM THE SECOND OWNER AND BROUGHT TO RHODE ISLAND BY ME. THE CAR IS INCREDIBLY SOLID, IT WAS ORIGINALLY EQUIPPED WITH A 289c.i. SMALL BLOCK V8 WHICH WAS CHANGED BY THE SECOND OWNER TO A 1969 MUSTANG 351 c.i. WINDSOR MOTOR, AS FAR AS I CAN TELL IT STILL HAS IT'S ORIGINAL C4 TRANSMISSION. THE MOTOR RUNS FLAWLESSLY AND THE TRANSMISSION SHIFTS FINE. THE CAR HAS IT'S ORIGINAL 4 WHEEL DRUM BRAKE SYSTEM THAT WORKS WELL. THE FRAME AND UNDERCARRAIGE OF THIS CAR IS ABSOLUTELY SOLID AND ROT FREE UNLIKE MOST OF THESE PARTICULAR GALAXIE'S WHICH ARE KNOWN FOR FRAME ROT. THE CAR HAS MOST OF IT'S ORIGINAL PAINT BUT I HAVE STARTED STRIPPING SOME OF THE CAR AND SEALER PRIMING IT. I WAS GOING TO STRIP THE ENTIRE BODY AND THEN REPAIR THE VERY MINOR BODY ROT THAT IT HAS IN THE VERY BOTTOM OF THE REAR QUARTER PANELS. THE TRUNK FLOOR WILL NEED TO BE REPLACED BECAUSE IT DOES HAVE SOME PERFORATION ROT THAT WAS CAUSED BY WHAT LOOKED LIKE BEACH SAND THAT WAS IN THE BOTTOM OF THE TRUNK AND HELD MOISTURE, IT IS ONLY THE VERY BOTTOM OF THE TRUNK FLOOR THAT IS AFFECTED.NEW TRUNK FLOORS ARE ABOUT $250 ON EBAY. THE INTERIOR IS A TYPICAL SOUTHERN INTERIOR THAT HAS DRIED OUT FROM THE HEAT AND THE SUN AND WILL NEED TO BE REDONE. I HAVE FOUND A COMPLETE SET OF NEW ORIGINAL FRONT AND REAR DOOR PANELS ON EBAY FOR ABOUT $550, CARPET SETS FOR ABOUT $125-$150. I HAVE ALREADY BOUGHT A NEW HEADLINER THAT WILL GO WITH THE CAR. PLEASE LOOK CLOSELY AT THE INTERIOR PICTURES, YOU WILL NOTICE THAT THE PREVIOUS OWNER CONVERTED THE AUTOMATIC SHIFT FROM THE COLUMN TO A MUSTANG SHIFTER ON THE FLOOR AND REPLACED THE ORIGINAL STEERING WHEEL WITH AN AFTERMARKET STEERING WHEEL,I WAS GOING TO PUT IT BACK TO ORIGINAL AND HAVE ALREADY BOUGHT A COMPLETE STEERING COLUMN, COMPLETE WITH ORIGINAL SHIFT ARM AND ORIGINAL STEERING WHEEL AND HORN CENTER. THAT WILL ALSO BE INCLUDED WITH THE CAR. ALSO NOTICE THAT THE DASH PAD IS WEATHER/HEAT RUINED, I ALSO HAVE AN ORIGINAL DASH PAD THAT IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION THAT WILL BE INCLUDED WITH THE CAR. WHAT THE CAR NEEDS MOST IS EXHAUST.I WAS GOING TO PUT A COMPLETE DUAL EXHAUST SYSTEM ON IT. THE CAR RUNS AND DRIVES WELL AS IS BUT THE EXHAUST IS SHOT AND VERY LOUD. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO ASK ANY AND ALL QUESTIONS BEFORE BIDDING. SHIPPING IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE BUYER. I WILL HELP IN ANY WAY POSSIBLE. $500 DEPOSIT EXPECTED WITHIN 24 HOURS AND FULL PAYMENT EXPECTED WITHIN 5 DAYS
