Technical data for 1964 Ford Galaxie 500 XL
An amazingly presented/preserved example of a top-of-the-line, full-size Ford is something to really notice. After all, this 1964 Ford Galaxie 500 XL coupe has great correct colors and a powerful V8 it likely had since days one. So you're looking at a terrific price for a premium and preserved classic.
What makes this car look so great is the quality of the recent professional respray of the factory-correct Wimbledon White. This legendary Ford color always gets respect at car shows, so it's great to have such a high-gloss shine. You'll also appreciate the nicely preserved Galaxie 500 trim that has a unique full-length design. Plus, the wave-like grille and form-fitting bumpers have a mirror-like shine. The fastback might have been built to help with NASCAR aerodynamics, but all the trim was still inspired by the jet age, including the chrome fins on the front fender, the turbine-style wheel covers, and of course, the afterburner taillights on the very tidy rear end.
The interior is said to be all-original, and with this exceptional condition, you better believe this Ford has spent its life as someone's baby. And that's not too hard to believe because the Galaxie 500 XL held the top rung of Ford's premium coupe ladder. So you got a bucket seat interior with a center console in between making this an executive-level ride worthy of executive-level care. And like any good 1960s car, there's plenty of bright trim to make this dark interior shine. The driver gets the original premium chrome ring wheel. Beyond that is the wide gauge cluster that spans half the dash. It includes a massively long speedometer flanked by two barrel-style gauge clusters. While the whole package looks thoroughly factory original, you do get an upgrade to an AM/FM/cassette radio, which allows you to have more modern tunes in this very vintage ride.
Open the hood for a true treat. The 352 cubic-inch V8 is authentic right down to the bright blue valve covers and air cleaner. You even get factory stickers and the FoMoCo washer bag. This is believed to be the original motor, and even the mileage is believed to be actual! So that just adds to the allure of this honest total package. But this coupe is for more than just for showing off. Topped with a four-barrel carburetor, this V8 is the ideal early '60s powerplant. It's both brawny and refined, making the performance seem almost effortless. Plus, there are great driving features like power steering and a three-speed automatic transmission.
This is old school luxury and power at its finest. With a look like this, and priced so right, we don't expect this Galaxie to stay in our showroom long. Call today!!!
