800 Derita Road, Ste. A
Wide, sleek, distinctive, and plenty of V8 power...this 1968 Ford Galaxie XL convertible is the kind of American classic that puts the wind in your hair without draining your bank account.
Ford's Galaxie XL drop-top had a new and radical face for 1968. The look was downright sporty with headlights hidden behind the full width grille. The body design retained the kick-up at the rear, which gives this long Ford a true sense of style. Overall, this was arguably one of Ford's most attractive designs of the 1960s because it perfectly blended elegance and performance. The same goes for its shade of light blue. This hue nicely complements the wide chrome bumpers and stylish 15-inch factory-style wheel covers. The full presentation isn't perfect, but the value price is there to leave room in your budget to give this one the personal touches you want. And there's always appeal in a car that has good fundamentals with stright panels, well-closing doors, and complete trim. Plus, this is truly a rare Ford with only about 6k Galaxie 500 XL convertibles produced this distinctive year.
The blue convertible top has a well-coordinated look against the paint, and when you fold it back, the blue interior gives you the same level of appeal. So this one has a sophisticated style with the roof up or down. There is room for improvement in places like the upholstery, but first it's good to start with the correct setup that even includes the trim in the seatbacks. There's even the right premium appeal with plenty of wood-like trim and newer blue carpeting. This is a true cruiser with the dual-spoke steering wheel giving you a good view of the extra wide speedometer. And everything on the dash is in its rightful place, including the AM/FM radio that's still cranking out the driving music.
With a convertible so blue inside and out, it's great to see proper blue oval power under the hood, too. This Ford V8 has a very authentic presentation that also shows the right signs of proper maintenance. And the way this fires up and runs reaffirms its good care. Ford's premium Galaxie 500 XL line was built for true cruisers, and so this also comes with the right easy driving features, like power steering, power brakes, and a three-speed automatic transmission.
This Ford drop-top combines rarity, beauty, and potential in one complete V8 classic. So you know you want this one in your driveway. Call now!
