Streetside Classics - Nashville
6000 Reliance Dr
This 1964 Ford Galaxie 500 is a full-size hardtop with some serious style. And since there's a big V8 under the hood and an upgraded suspension, it really makes for an awesome cruiser.
The sloping rear roof of the special code 63B fastback might have made the car more attractive, but it's true purpose was better aerodynamics on the track. And this mix of both striking and speedy seem to be amplified on this example with a lowered suspension. In fact, everything on this car looks like it was meant to inspire a sporty feeling. The grille has a sleek wave-like form, the trim streaks down the side like it's the trail of a rocket, and the rear bumper contours around taillights that look like afterburners. It's all set against the factory-correct Dynasty Green. You may choose to update the color or wheels or add your own personal touch. But regardless, there is just something quite striking about how this classic is presented today.
The factory-correct turquoise interior is a nice harmonizing color with the exterior. Pieces like the door panels and upholstery seem to have been refreshed later in life, and they used a correct style, right down to the bright trim. This one is equipped how you want it with the radio upgraded to a retro-style AM/FM unit that gives you a classic look but modern convenience. There are even provisions for air conditioning (the main components seem to be in place, but it will need to be serviced and hooked up.) And this just seems to have the right atmosphere where you can roll down all the windows on this pillarless hardtop, grab the classily thin steering wheel, and hit the gas to comfortably cruise all day long.
Pop the hood and you'll see that callouts on the fenders were not lying. It's the correct Z-code 390 cubic-inch V8. This optional "Thunderbird" powerhouse looks great dressed in gold on the valve covers and a matching air cleaner. It fires up readily as the V8 inhales deeply through a Holley four-barrel carburetor. It exhales with a nice tone out of the Flowmaster dual exhaust. This was built to be nice out on the road. And so you have upgrades everywhere like the Champion aluminum radiator w/electric fan to help keep this running cool. And the modern QA1 shocks give this a confident ride. Plus, the three-speed transmission, power steering, power brakes, and front discs make for a great all-around driver.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual and title documentation. You're looking at a full-size coupe that has both a speedy look and a powerful heart. Call today!!!
