1967 Ford Galaxie Additional Info:


A true barn/ garage find. Having only 61500 miles this awesome 1967 Ford LTD Galaxie 500 390 ci. 2 bbl. automatic 2 door coupe slant back with power steering and AC has been parked for the better part of the past 20 years and saw minimal use prior to that. Always garage kept and driven mostly on the weekends by a little ole man to church, literally. The gentlemen passed away recently and the family decided to part with his lifelong prized possession. He acquired the LTD on November 25th 1968 from Don Drennen Motor Co. a long gone local dealership in Ensley Alabama and has owned it ever since. It resided in the adjoining community of Wylam, AL its' entire life. Records indicate that the sale price was $2740.48. I have all the original paper work including the original warranty data plate. Upon obtaining the LTD I have had fluids and filters changed along with belts and hoses. The valve cover gaskets and water pump have also been changed as the water pump was noisy and the cover gaskets were seeping some oil. The brakes have been gone through completely A-Z with shoes, wheel cylinders, spring kit, hardware kits, adjusters, hoses, and master cylinder, etc. practically everything except the actual hard lines. Stops great. Points, condenser, rotor, coil, plug wires and cap were changed and a good fresh tank of premium gasoline were added and she fired up instantaneously after her two decade hibernation. I saved the original pieces for all you original parts guys. A trip to the detail shop made this baby look like it was built yesterday. It shines like new money, you can see the reflection of the stripes in the parking lot in the paint in the photos. She drives great, smooth and soft just as one of these land barges is supposed to with such low mileage. Transmission shifts out perfect. Exhaust is quiet. Pretty much everything operates correctly aside from the fuel gauge reads low and AC needs charging. Unknown to the family the car had a repaint most likely in the months prior to this gentleman's purchase. I can find no evidence of any repair work, wreck or damage. The only thing that I can figure is possible hail damage in the very first few months of it's life. If you look closely in the right light you can see some very small dimples in the top of the front fenders. It's pretty hard to pick up on. This is what led me to this assumption. I have owned probably a hundred plus vintage cars, some very, very nice ones, and there has only been one that was the caliber of originality and condition of this car. It is as solid as it was in 1967. It appears to have the original vinyl top and we all know how vinyl top cars breed moisture resulting in rust. Only minimal signs of some very light peppering can be found in the most usual place, lower corner of rear window under vinyl. The underneath of the car looks just like you would expect, rust free. Trunk is as solid as a rock and may contain original spare, I have not verified this. The original jack is in the trunk. Tires are in very good shape. This is an awesome example of a car that was proudly owned and babied by its owner until his passing. It would be next to impossible to find another one of these with this mileage, 60,500 and in original condition. Buyer is responsible for all shipping and transportation. Drive it home!
