1965 Ford Galaxie 500 Additional Info:

This is a slammed Galaxie with bulleted details and ALL original, except for the best part...... It sports a balanced '66 Big Block 390 and C6 trans with a mild shift kit. Virtually everything mechanically has either been rebuilt or replaced. It is an absolute BEAST that rumbles and roars with complete build sheet. Thumbs up everywhere I go! No details were spared by a world famous speed shop in Sonoma CA to make this a sleeper that surprises new Mustangs. (Blue car is inspiration)
Its entire life was spent in California until I shipped it to Atlanta recently. It's the first year of the stacked headlights, just like the GTO. I spent over $13k already and planning to redo the all original interior and paint next if no serious takers. It's a daily driver with only about a thousand miles on it since rebuilds. Could become a serious Rod, turn to a Rat, or one heck of a classic. Everything is there, you just determine the final look. I've already done all the expensive, hard work.
