1965 Ford Galaxie 500 Sunliner
A really nice convertible sporting nice colorful upholstery that
compliments the exterior. This was a year of change for Ford..it appeared
a bit more formal, probably owing to the influence of the Lincoln
Continental. The famous round tailights were modified to be more
rectangular in shape. The instrument cluster continued to set a standard
in uncluttered beautiful design.

1966 Ford Galaxie Project: A Yearlong Journey
Here's the entire year in pictures of the 460 Galaxie project. Starting in
August of 2008, we converted this 1966 ford Galaxie 500 to a 500XL in honor
of my dad's 70th birthday. The car replicates his original XL with
substantial improvements to the motor, drivetrain, suspension, brakes,
electrical system and paint. I presented the car to my dad July 25, 2009
as a surprise at the Hatboro, PA auto show.
This was a true labor of love!

1967 USA Ford LTD Galaxie Fastback Coupe 390 Big Block V8 -- 3-Speed Auto
This Coupe is an extremely unique example of a classic USA Ford Galaxie
Fastback Coupe, with all the LTD additions. Then the killer combination of
Black duco and Black interior -- Black on Black, now throw in a mean set of
The Galaxie has been slightly lowered to fit perfectly on her 20" rims. The
ride height is in just right with a tough stance. She drives true and
straight down the road and around bends without any rubbing. Some of the
most recent improvements include; Complete interior redone, New 20" rims &
tires (less than a year old), New Pencil Tip chrome Exhaust tips, New vinyl top (less than a year
old), Motor: rebuilt in 2005 all moving parts refurbished, New gas tank and
Interior: As mentioned recently replaced, the seats are in great nic, as
are all the door skins and handles. The headliner looks in good condition
and the dash looks nearly immaculate with one crack (in well of speedo).
The weather stripping and window felts are showing signs of wear around the
place. The carpet is also in good shape without ware or stains.
Body: The door panels are straight and fit as the originals would. The
paint is fair I have to say and give it around 7 out of 10 (no bog, just
old enamel straight out the gun). All the chrome and bright work is in
tack, some of the trim has a few dents and imperfections when looking hard.
The bumpers are in near flawless condition, but have lost a bit of the
bling. Rust; all of the common places appear to be rust free and all the
floors look nice and solid. With all the original sheetmetal still in place
no patches to be seen.
Other Bits: The 3-Speed Auto shifts without noise or issue and the kick
back seems to work fine. The brakes on this thing would put most modern
cars to shame, with a nice big Booster under the hood. The Galaxie stops a
treat and has a very firm pedal. The power steering works a treat without
any signs of any leaks or wear. This vehicle drivers very well for a Muscle
Car Classic .
Condition: Vehicle is in great condition for its nearly 47 years on this
planet, however is sold in, as is condition. With no warranty given or
implied. She's a beautiful car and although not a show car, I believe with
a little work she could compete with the best. The only discrepancies are;
factory radio & speakers have been removed, the blower and windscreen
whippers don't work.
Fine Print: More than happy to answer any genuine questions about the car,
just send an message anytime and I'll pass on my contact details. Locally
for Sale can be removed at any time. Any Inspections of Vehicle welcomed at
your cost, my convenience. Test drives are "Out of the Question" without
firm deposit. Vehicle is sitting in my garage and have only been driven
around the Adelaide streets on day permit. Currently Shannon's insured.
Vehicle Never been rego'ed in Oz.
Payment: $500 Non-Refundable Deposit on close of Auction via PayPal. Full
payment CASH or Bank Cheque or arranged Internet Transfer with conditions.
Necessary Customs import approval paperwork and other associated transfer
documents will be made available on sale of vehicle.
