  • It followed me home I swear...

    Just got her home yesterday, along with two truckloads (literally) of parts.
    Car is a '64 Ford Galaxie 500 XL, with the original 289 and three speed automatic. Last registered in '87. It's pretty solid with only a couple soft spots in the floor and one medium sized one in the trunk. Plan to get it up and running for the summer for cruising while the Chevelle is "in progress." Once it's done, this one will get the royal treatment. My dad is green with envy as this is one of his dream cars. In fact, he's now on the hunt for a 65 chevelle in hopes I'll trade him for it. Not so sure I can though, as the wife is even excited about getting this car!!!

    Happy birthday to ME!!! :D

    (And yes, that is duct tape helping hold the windshield down. The seal is rotted and the glass doesn't sit quite right, so it keeps the rain out......I hope.)


    The parts included:
    -Another full set of stainless trim and then some
    -Another grille thats like new
    -Passenger door
    -Passenger fender
    -Set of inner fenders
    -2 quarter windows to replace the one thats broken on the driver side
    -Bench seat
    -clutch pedal assembly
    -new tail lenses
    -Dash and heater box
    -Gauge panel
    -Power brake booster
    -Full set of un-busted headlights
    -Another front bumper and brackets
    -Another clock
    -Another Wiring harness
    -Extra Gas tank
    -Steering column for a 3 on the tree w/steering wheel
    -Drive shaft
    -Plus odds and ends that I have no idea what they are.

    Got the car and all these parts for $600 dollars.

    More pics. I love the interior in this car. Beautiful 2-toned vinly with gold cording. It was so dirty, I didn't even know the gold was there until I scrubbed it down!:sad:

                    Sounds like you don't need any more parts, but just in case you do...

                            X2, big time. Some one recently wanted to trade my 70 Caprice for a 63 Galaxie 500XL. It was a running and driving car, but had issues. If it was a 64 like yours, it be in my driveway right now issues or not.

                              Hey in you find yourself needing any parts let me know. My Dad owned a '64 Galaxie 500 XL convertible for 20 years. Has lots of parts stored away. To be perfectly honest, they stainless trim you got, if in good shape, is probably worth just as much as the car itself. Cool find, good luck with it.
