1968 Ford Galaxie XL Additional Info:

Here's a Gorgeous and Original Galaxie XL Fastback Hardtop from deceased owner's estate..He was a FOMOCO collector, Mercurys and Fords. And a local neighbor. This is a totally rust-free car built in the Los Angeles plant that has only 47,998 miles. You can see under the valve cover in photo that there is very light oil buildup. She has had a nice high quality/ high $ base coat/clear coat 2 stage paint job that has been color sanded and buffed to a beautiful luster. Car codes for medium blue metallic..code Q. It was done right..underneath hood and rear deck lid, the door jambs and engine bay all pristene and better than factory in my opinion.It has GT rocker stripes and fine double belt line pin striping.
The interior has been redone in the factory correct Blue(code RB) vinyl with the pebble grain inserts. The door panels are original with no rips,tears but do show some minor fading at top..not bad. New carpet and headliner along with the rear shelf have been installed. New door weather stripping and trunk seals have been installed. original window felts are good but a brand new set is included still in the box. the trunk is correct finish with original restored jack. The bumpers are new and other chrome is original with some minor wear. Fastback and XL trim is hard to come by so original items have been used in the restoration. This car is very presentable. Has power disc brakes and power steering..The carburetor has been rebuilt..still needs some minor tweeking at idle but starts excellent when cold and idles down..new plugs and wires have been installed. Also a new alternator,starter solenoid and battery.The engine bays is very tidy, clean and presentable. The vacuum headlight raise and lower as they should along with high and low beam and turn signals. she has a column mounted Sunpro tachometer.
The exhaust system is all new with aluminized tube and Flowmaster exhaust..sounds great but not too loud. It has BF Goodrich radials and original correct mag syle Fomoco 15" hubcaps. This is a fine collector car.... original, straight and rust-free that would add nicely to any collection..Why spend double or more for a Mustang fastback when you can have the grand daddy which is much more rare yet very cool. An undervalued and often overlooked Ford Classic..Please call with any questions, Jay 360-852-0589
