1964 Ford Galaxie 500 XL Additional Info:

We love this 1964 Ford Galaxie 500 XL because it combines a bit of sleeper car style with the birth of the muscle car. After all, these Galaxies were known for their big V8 power, but this turquoise hardtop doesn't give too many indicators that there's a recently rebuilt 428ci big block monster lurking under the hood.
The cool pillarless hardtop body sets the tone right because it helps reinforce the top-of-the-line 500 XL trim. There's a sleek profile developed to give these a better NASCAR aerodynamics, and it also seems to fit with all the brightwork that was inspired by the jet age. This includes the chrome fins on the front fender, sweeping side trim, and the afterburner taillights on the tidy rear end. It's a very vintage look, and the turquoise blue paint just seems to support this classic attitude. The finish is bright, but not perfect, and so it fits in with a respected classic appearance. And so unless people pay attention the competition-style Torq Thrust wheels or the hint of traction bars you can see, this one just looks like a classic cruiser. So you can surprise them with the monster under the hood.
The interior has a nicely done style with good carpeting, a tight headliner, smooth classic dash, and the artful stock steering wheel. We especially like the custom seating that has a comfy velour inserts for where you sit and a stylish turquoise stripe to coordinate with the exterior. There are useful additions, like the cup holders and auxiliary gauges under the dash. There's an AM/FM digital tuner w/cassette for better driving music. But really, we all know the best soundtrack comes from when you roll down all the windows on this pillarless hardtop and hear the rumble.
You can instantly tell there was a big investment in the engine bay from the first moment you lay eyes on this tidy and shining total package. In fact, we have a receipt from 2018 for $19k this went to rebuilding this motor. It's an awesome 428 cubic-inch big block. This is built with the best pieces, including aluminum heads, an Edelbrock intake, Edelbrock ribbed valve covers, and topped with a Holley four-barrel carburetor. It has all the right supporting pieces, like a serpentine belt system, high performance plug wires, and an aluminum radiator w/electric fan. There's even already a compressor if you choose to add A/C to this one. There's a custom set of headers that add even more power while it also feeds the rumbling dual exhaust. The fresh motor makes it a strong package, and features like power steering and a three-speed automatic transmission make it easy to tame. Plus, the wide radial tires and traction bars do a good job of bringing the power to the pavement.
True vintage style and serious V8 power makes for the ultimate fun hardtop. So if you love a muscle machine, you know this is irresistible. Call today!!!
