Amongst some of the best looking Fords of the sixties was the 1964 Ford Galaxie 500 Convertible – seen here in Wimbledon White (paint code M)
It is a full-size Ford sitting on a 119″ wheelbase and is 209.8″ long – that’s around seventeen and a half feet.
This particular car is a mostly original survivor that has never been restored. What you see here is an automobile that has been garaged and looked after its entire life.
Round taillights had become something you expected from Ford having been used for years – except 1960!
There’s plenty of comfort in the back too with the 100% Foam-Cushioned “Shell Contoured” rear seats. The convertible top is concealed under the padded boot which has concealed fasteners.
The V8 Galaxie came standard with a 195 horsepower 289 cubic inch engine. This car was purchased with a Thunderbird 352 cubic inch V8 that provided 250 horsepower and cost an additional $70.70.
Other options on this car include; power steering ($86.30), Cruise-O-Matic Drive automatic transmission ($212.30), AM radio ($58.50), padded dash ($18.60) and tinted windshield ($21.55).
Ford produced 37,311 Galaxie 500 Convertibles for the 1964 model year. They had a sticker price of $2,947 plus any options.
