This 1964 Ford Galaxie 500 XL is a premium classic coupe wrapped around a slick burgundy appearance. And with the awesome interior and muscular V8, it's an impressive total package that's ready to hit the streets right now.
The factory-correct Vintage Burgundy is the ideal color for a premium and powerful classic like this. It seems to give you some of the boldness of red but in a deeper and more sophisticated tone. Its impressiveness is also aided by a quality respray so that it has a terrific gloss and shine every time the sunlight hits the bold color. We love a good pillarless hardtop body, because it helps reinforce the top-of-the-line 500 XL trim. And while the lines of it were developed to give these a better profile for NASCAR aerodynamics, all the trim was still inspired by the jet age. This includes the chrome fins on the front fender and the afterburner taillights on the very tidy rear end. And we especially love the sweeping side trim. It's bright and quality package that helps show off the straightness of the sheetmetal. And the outstanding shine continues on the bumpers, full trim, and 17-inch polished wheels.
Inside, the worlds of performance and premium are merged together expertly. They made a solid investment in restoring the factory-correct white package to make sure it looks fresh and vibrant. The range-topping XL line meant front bucket seats and a stylish center console in-between. As Ford's full-sized offering, there's plenty of room to carry family and friends along for the ride, but even when it's just you, this Galaxie coupe excites. 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 auxiliary readout trio and a driver-facing tach. It's these kinds of upgrades that really reinforce the feeling of a driver's classic.
Under the hood is a very tidy look to a large and shining V8. This is a 1964-correct FE block dressed to be correct for this Z-code Galaxie. Yes, you read that right, this is a Z-code car. And so it lives up to that powerful reputation today with upgrades like a Holley four-barrel carburetor and Edelbrock intake. And the H-pipe dual exhaust with Flowmaster mufflers gives this a nice V8 tune. There's also the cruise-o-matic three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, rear air shocks, wide Tiger Paw tires, and upgraded power brakes with front discs. It's all part of a package to give you a powerful coupe that still has an executive-class feel.
We really love everything about this Galaxie 500 XL, even the fact that it was built locally at Ford's Atlanta plant. It's premium, powerful, and sleek. So if you really want a head-turning hardtop, call today!
