1966 Ford Galaxie 500 Convertible

When viewing this convertible, you would believe that the year is 1966 and you were at the local Ford dealership.  The only thing that gives this beautiful convertible away is the odometer which shows the original mileage of 60,247.  Other than that, it looks brand new!!  The original upholstery looks as if it has never been sat on.  When you slide in behind the wheel and push the switch for the automatic top to go down, you just can’t believe this is not a brand new Galaxie 500 convertible.  Then you turn the ignition key and the original 352 CI 4 barrel start immediately.  You notice the cold light stays lit until the motor warms up a little.  This gives you the opportunity to adjust the original AM radio to your favorite station.  As you look at the clock on the dash, you realize that you have several hours to enjoy this car with the top down.  Once you slide the cruise-o-matic into gear and you cruise down the highway, you just can’t believe your good fortune in finding a car this fabulous!  After all, she is 48 years old!!  It actually rides and drives better than when it rolled off the assembly line in Mahwah, New Jersey.


This rust free Ford Galaxie 500 convertible, with a complete numbers matching drive train was still sporting its original paint before the restoration took place (which will attest to the Galaxie’s  excellent condition prior to the restoration).  After completely refurbishing the suspension, steering and brake systems, it was repainted to its original color of Wimbledon White.  It also received all new weather seals.  The glass, chrome and all bright work is in excellent condition as well.
