This 1964 Ford Galaxie 500 XL is a hardtop that knows how to be premium, sleek, and absolutely powerful. It will impress you with everything from the sleek chrome to the bucket seat interior. And that's before you twist the key and hear the rumble of a 427 V8 dual-quad in this R-code tribute.
This coupe loves the sunshine. The blue paint is a modern application with a nice clearcoat luster. Good body panels, well-aligned doors, and form-hugging chrome bumpers all make this upper-trim XL look like a high-class cruiser. This is one of the most all-around attractive classics around. The zooming side trim and afterburner tail lights are pure jet-age cool. And the fastback profile was done to help be a better NASCAR contender. That's also a reason why it's so nice to have the upgrade under the hood, but more on that in a moment...
Inside, the worlds of performance and premium are merged together expertly. They upgraded this to a muscle car friendly full blackout package. But the supple feeling of the intricate stitching, plush carpeting, and plenty of bright trim all come together for an upper-class experience. It really looks terrific, right down to the interior light package. It's quite inviting for everyone with full-size interior space, supple upholstery, and an upgraded retro-style AM/FM stereo. And the premium XL means you have front bucket seats and a stylish center console in-between. The driver gets the original premium chrome ring wheel. Beyond that is the wide gauge cluster that spans nearly half the dash. It includes a massively long speedometer flanked by two barrel-style gauge clusters. Plus, there's a cleanly installed SW oil pressure readout under the dash. It's these kinds of upgrades that really reinforce the feeling of a driver's classic.
The engine bay is filled with blue oval big block power. As a proper R-code tribute, this has a mighty 427 cubic-inch V8 heart. And that long air grabber is covering a dual set of Holley four-barrel carburetors. The whole motor has a clean and correct look, right down to Ford hoses and Autolite decals. However, this is a proper driver, and so you will also spot the right upgrades, like an MSD 6AL ignition and a Summit distributor. The big block fires up readily, and it makes a sultry tune out of the H-pipe dual exhaust. This is a car that likes you to feel the road like a proper classic. But you'll also feel the right poise from features like the drilled & slotted Wilwood front disc brakes, wide BF Goodrich T/A, and the overall confidence that comes from a clean undercarriage where you can see the quality components. Plus, The Cruise-O-Matic three-speed automatic transmission is a great unit that delivers smooth shifting.
This one loves to get the fast Ford style right. There's even a Tasca Ford badge added to the rear. It's the detail-oriented dual-quad R-code tribute you're going to love. Call today!!!
