1968 Ford Galaxie XL Fastback 428 V8 4 BBL Hideaway Headlights
I thought you might like a look at this very nice 1968 Ford Galaxie XL Fastback. This particular car is a Q-code model, meaning that it is powered by a 428 V8 topped with a 4 BBL carb. This car appears to have been repainted at some point, but other than that, it is nearly all original. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for taking a look!

132798 / 1970 Ford Galaxie 500
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/7clh9za If you're looking for some vintage metal that's stylish, powerful and has a lot of history, who says you have to buy a cramped, high maintenance muscle car? This awesome Galaxie 500 will look just as cool rolling down the road, turn just as many heads at the local drive in and, thanks to a thorough shakedown by our RK Motors Charlotte service department, is ready to provide you with miles of carefree cruising! Assembled at Ford's Chicago, Illinois manufacturing facility in May of 1970, this pristine Ford Galaxie 500 survivor was originally shipped to Paul Heuring Motors in Hobart, Indiana and sold to Ray Eggers of nearby Valparaiso, Indiana. Since that sunny summer day 42 years ago, it has led a pampered three owner life that, judging by its mostly original Green Metallic paint, was free of exposure to inclement weather, significant wet road driving and long-term outside storage. Today, the car is in overall outstanding condition displaying a glossy finish that is characterized by an excellent shine; and factory accurate panel alignment which creates surprisingly narrow gaps and solid closing doors. Providing the motivation for this all-business blue oval bruiser is a 390 cubic inch, numbers matching Ford FE 2-valve big block which, by 1970, pushed out 265 horsepower a whopping 390 ft./lb. of torque! Cast on May (E) 6th (6) of 1970 (0), and designed to go head to head with Chevrolet's less powerful 409, the 390 in this Galaxie's engine bay is factory fresh, highly original, and exceptionally clean. In fact, the only non-original pieces are a new Edelbrock aluminum intake, a new 4-barrel Edelbrock Performer carburetor and a nice set of blue MSD Heli-core plug wires. And if you're the kind of purist that demands all the right parts in all the right places, the car's original cast iron intake and 2-barrel carburetor ARE included with the sale. This well optioned Galaxie 500 is still equipped with its original PGA-A4 tagged Select-Shift Cruise-O-Matic which means you can either let its smooth C6 take you down the road on its own or, if you're feeling spirited, row yourself through the gears via a built in manual mode. Its undercarriage, like its engine bay, is clean, honest and certainly not to the point where anyone should be afraid to put this car either on the road or on a lift. The computer tuned boxed frame rolls a sturdy three link rear suspension, which is complete with freshened air shocks, aft of a good looking double A-arm front suspension which has been fitted with new shocks, new tie rod ends, new bushings and new ball joints courtesy of our first rate RK Motors Charlotte Service facility. Finishing this fully sorted undercarriage of is a set of fresh 235/70/15 BF Goodrich Radial T/As which spin classic Ford turbine hub caps that are complete with upscale maroon centers. Take a look inside this Galaxie 500 and you'll find a plush and roomy interior which is as luxury oriented as any mainline automaker could manage in 1970. That means high quality knitted vinyl seats, thick loop pile nylon carpets, new-for-1970 Uni-lock seatbelts, and even a remote left hand mirror. The original front and rear bench seats are in excellent, unblemished condition showing little to no wear at all; and feature enough leg and elbow room to parade around you and your extended family. At the sides of those seats, padded door panels hang fade-free wood applique above large armrests that are complete with chrome handles, and chrome window cranks which roll all four side windows down to create a true pillarless hard top. And in front of the driver, Ford's 'swept-away' dash, which centers all the car's instrumentation in a console-like, wood trimmed binnacle to provide maximum room for front passengers, displays no cracks or fading; and holds an original Philco AM radio above controls for the car's heat and air conditioning system, an original two-spoke steering wheel and a chrome transmission shifter. This cool Galaxie 500 survivor is a stylish, comfortable, and reliable piece that will still command a lot of respect on the highway or at the local car show!
