1964 Ford Galaxie Convertible
1964 Galaxie 500 convertible, triple black, 302 Windsor V8, Automatic with beautiful custom power top!
Bought from it’s original owner in California as an absolutely rust and accident free car, imported to Australia and restored here in Queensland.
The car was only driven for 6 years from 1964 to 1970, then when the owner ran into a minor issue and the car stopped running. He parked the car in the garage where it remained for most of it’s life until it changed hands and was imported in 2015. The car was then stripped and bare metal sprayed, the paint is beautiful and the car is dead straight and would suit any paint fussy buyer.
New carpet was installed but all the trim is original to the car and exceptional for it’s age and a testament to it’s low miles and storage. Mags and new tyres were fitted, new C4 automatic trans with a new floor shifter was added, the brakes were all over hauled and the original 289 engine got a full rebuild and turned into a spritly 302. The engine has only covered approx 1000kms since the car has all been put back together. A full new exhaust system replaced the old, a new radiator and a refurbished gas tank sits underneath, and all new bushing have replaced the old from front and rear. A new convertible top was made, and much nicer and classier than the factory top and has a new rear zip out rear glass window and it is one of the few convertibles that looks just as good with the top up than down!
Won American top category for RACQ MOTOR FEST 2019.
