Big Coupe: 1964 Ford Galaxie 500XL

1964 Ford Galaxie 500XL

Big block V8, four speed transmission, bucket seats, rust free, garage stored and no reserve! That sounds like quite the combo to me! This ’64 Galaxie really has a lot going for it. Whoever optioned it out knew what they were doing, that’s for sure. After a few years of garage storage, the seller has the 390 V8 running and have it working well enough to drive it in and out of their garage. It still needs brake work and tires to be a safe driver. You can find this mean machine here on eBay in Windsor, Colorado with a current bid of $7,800.

Everything about this car sounds perfect to me, expect that it’s been repainted. Seeing as it has only been parked since 2002, I’m going to guess it has been restored at least once in its life. With any luck I’m wrong and the only thing done to it was the new paint job. The seller claims everything looks solid inside and out. It still needs some work, but could be a fun project to fix up. I probably wouldn’t do much to it, other than make sure it’s safe and fun to drive!

The 390 is the 300 horsepower Z code, but the seller hasn’t been able to find any numbers on the block to see if it’s the original engine or not.

While this big two door won’t be the fastest classic on the road, it still would be a fun car to hit the open road in. I would want to go over it very carefully though, as I’ve looked at several projects lately that have older resprays and the amount of Bondo I saw was incredible. You just never know what you might find hiding under new paint, so do your homework on this one! Wouldn’t it be fun to have though?

    Nice old Classic.

    I’m a GM guy but I would like to have this big old girl…as long as it has a 390, I’d just slick it up and drive the hell out of it…(I mean heck out of it)

    Nice photos. Everyone selling should take notes from this guy. Cool car. priced right so far. Not sure if it is worth much more. Good year, decent car but a total resto for sure unless you do what DENIS said. Either way cool car.

    The original 390 engine color was black, so I assume the engine’s been out at some point, no biggie. I love full-size cars with manual transmissions!

    390 were blue 352 were gold

  8. ClassicCarFan

    in 1964, the 390 4V block was supposed to be black (just the valve cover gold)

    What CJ said…..yes it’s a four speed now….but is it a factory four speed…the console looks like an automatic and that shifter could have been changed at some point ?

    It my not be stock but who cares it’s still a nice car that would move like a gazelle. I’d fix the mechanicals and repaint it yet again, and just enjoy owning and driving this car. Sometime when there not original you can enjoy them more your not worried about dents or dings. Nice find.

    Love it my friend had one in high school 390/4 speed all factory and would blow the doors off 65/289 mustangs

    The seller shows the casting # on the intake to be a ’67. Somewhere down the road the eng. might have been changed. It is 52 years old. It’s nice to see an original carburetor still there, instead of a cobbled up installed replacement. Someone did a nice install job, back when.
