Presented for your consideration is this gorgeous black-on-black, 390
powered, 4-speed, air-conditioned Galaxie 500 XL coupe, just like the ones
Ford used to dominate NASCAR in the '60s. A true two owner car from one
family in Missouri fully restored and showing 56,129 original miles, this
is one awesome piece of Ford history. It just received a thorough polish
and looks absolutely radiant in that silky Raven Black paint and the
amazing trim that Ford used on the top-of-the-line Galaxies.
Speaking of paint, the surfaces on this car look recent, and are done in a
2-stage system for a deep, rich finish that acrylic lacquer and enamels
from 1964 just can't touch. Sinister and imposing, this is the car you
always wished your father would buy instead of the stodgy 4-door with an
inline six and automatic transmission. The flanks are very straight, and I
have no problems believing that this was a clean car before restoration.
All sheet-metal on this Galaxie is original to the car and panel gaps are
better than average all around. Look at the pictures again and remember how
hard it is to make a black car look good under the harsh lights in the
photo booth—bad prep can't hide from the camera, and there are no cut
corners on this Galaxie, it's all first-rate workmanship. And as I
mentioned, our own detail shop put the final shine on the paint just a few
days ago, making this car show-ready today.
The assembly line installed 390 cubic inch "Thunderbird Special" V8 under
the hood has been detailed and looks awesome in its original gold color. It
is dominated by the big, round air cleaner housing, and, in this particular
car, the air conditioning compressor, which was factory equipment. Hoses
and wiring are new, and RKM just installed a correct Autolite battery the
other day. The original single master cylinder is still in place on the
original power brake Booster, but
note that this car does not have power steering, strange, but just a part
of this car's mystique. The bottom of the hood has been finished to a much
higher standard than original, too; look at the reflection of the engine in
The muscular 390's power is transmitted rearward through a bulletproof
Toploader 4-speed manual, which absolutely transforms the car's
personality. Luxury car? Muscle car? Both? The transmission is plenty stout
enough to bang through the gears. And speaking of gears, of course there's
a rock solid Ford 9-inch rear out back, the same one that has been
transmitting power for all the big horsepower racers for
decades now. The floors are solid, as is the frame, and all the mechanical
pieces have been recently rebuilt and serviced, making this Galaxie a
turn-key hobby car. True dual Exhaust
feeds a pair of Flowmaster mufflers that sound great behind the big 390,
not too loud, but enough to let people know this isn't grandma's
grocery-getter. It looks like there's a new shock absorber at each corner,
the brakes are firm and stop the car well, and it rides on relatively
recent 225/75/14 whitewall tires and original spinner hubcaps.
The interior features black vinyl deluxe bucket seats and a center console
that houses the shifter for the 4-speed. The front seat covers, headliner,
and carpet are new, while the rest is a combination of outstanding original
pieces and items that were replaced in the past. It shows extremely well,
with very little wear and tear on any of the surfaces. There's an original
Ford pushbutton AM radio with front and rear speakers, with the rear one in
the center of the rear seat behind a gorgeous chrome grille. The steering
wheel is gorgeous, with the Galaxie 500 XL emblem in the center and a
rim-blow horn ring. I really dig the gold anodized appearance of the gauge
faces, better than plain black or the more common brushed silver, and it's
amazing how "right" it looks in this black '60s cruiser.
Fords are still relatively under-valued when compared to their GM and Mopar
competition, and this gentleman's express Galaxie is a screaming bargain!

Muscle Car Of The Week Video #7: 1966 Galaxie 500 XL R-Code 427
Become a Facebook Fan!
The Muscle Car Of The Week is this stunning 1966 Ford Galaxie 500 XL that
becomes more interesting the more you look. You will first notice the
subdued color called Coventry Gray, and it was never offered on the Ford
Galaxie for 1966. It is a specially ordered Mercury color, making this the
only one ever built! And while they made many Galaxie 500 XL models, there
were less than 50 that came with the R-Code 427 V8 under the hood. Boasting
425 hp, the R-Code 427 breathed through dual four barrel carburetors and
churned a four speed manual transmission. This might not look like a race
car, but it seemed to be built for the dragstrip. We love the juxtaposition
of luxury and power, making this a wolf in banker's clothing!

1964 Ford M/T Thunderbolt 427 Hemi Bolt
This is a 1964 Ford Thunderbolt Fairlane, this car was built by Mickey
Thompson, it is #10, raced by Jess Tyre back in 1964 with Mickey Thompson.
This is a video shot for Skyline Ford of Salem, Oregon who owned the car.
I sold it for them to a gentleman down in California in 2008. It was found
out while my friends owned it here in Salem, that this car though retains a
lot of the orignal parts from the original Thunderbolt, that it had been
Rebodied, which means that the shell is from a different car. So anyone
who comes into contact with it, should know that it is very valuable but is
considered a rebodied Thunderbolt. Jess Tyre will tell you that it is the
original car, he looked at it a few years ago and documented. He is
incorrect in our opinion because we talked to the gentleman that restored
the car, and he rebodied it around 1991. As of know this is pretty common
knowledge, but just letting everyone know the story. It is running the
same configuration as it did in 1964. Mickey Thompson, was building
motors, out of a 427 Ford Short block, and then using Chrysler 392 Hemi
Heads, and convertiing them to fit the Ford 427, and put a Cross Ram intake
on the car, with Dual Carburators. This car is really mean sounding, and
ran awesome. What you won't see is the video, is when I got on the street
with it, and launched it down Mission Street, 1st, 2nd Gear coming to the
dealership. The film guy for the commercial put the music in and cut out
the good shots, darn him. You should have heard it, and I was shaking, and
my clutch foot was shaking to death, what a wicked car. Thanks very much,
