1967 Ford Galaxie 500 289 A/C

At first glance, this 1967 Ford Galaxie 500 looks like a nice original survivor. The patina on the hood goes well with the faded green paint. Unfortunately, though, this car is sort of like the Batman character Two Face, but you’ll see more about that later. The car is located in Ozone Park, New York, and can be found here on eBay with an asking price of $5,000. Thanks to Larry D. for giving us the tip on this one!

The seller says the original 289 cubic inch V8 runs and idles on its own. It was driven back and forth about five feet, but the ad says that it will need some work to be fully road-worthy.

The interior is probably the best part of this car. As you can see it appears to have all-original upholstery and the dash doesn’t look like it has been messed with. Even the headliner is in great shape!

As mentioned before, this car has two different sides. The passenger side doesn’t look too bad, but the driver’s side has seen some damage over the years. There is a big ding in the rear quarter panel and another one on the driver’s door. So what do you think about this car? Do you think the seller will get the $5k asking price?

    Hmmm, as stated: needs a door, possible left quarter panel replacement and rear bumper. Sourcing replacement trim and tail light components will be difficult. (IMO) the $5 K asking is on the high side. I wonder how long ago the car relocated from Florida? GLWTA!! :-)

    This is the third “fastback” mid-60’s Galaxie featured in the last week. All have been grossly overpriced. There is no foreseeable world where this non-running car needing a drivers side rear quarter panel and door as well as an undetermined amount of rust repair is worth anywhere close to $5,000. Realistically, it’s closer to a parts car than a restoration project.

    WTH is going on with the center of that steering wheel? And to the seller, get your head out of the clouds man. This isn’t a Barret-Jackson car… consider what it’s max value is, and then figure out how much someone would need to spend to get there. 1200-2000 max. Steve R is right. Probably a parts car. My rant is over.

      Agreed. It is a $1,500 dollar car at the most.

      Very hard hit on left rear along with everything else not worth it. Unfortunately it needs to go to cowboy car crusher. 🙁

    Well, at least this one is not covered with lumber with a seller threatening to up the price if one doesn’t buy it sight-unseen….like the one posted yesterday :-)

    That steering wheel center cap was one of Ford’s
    safety features.I had the same one on my ’68 Cortina.

    It’s going to take some serious body work to be roadworthy. How much would it cost to have that rear fender replaced? 1500 to 2000?

    What a dog . This recent run of galaxies need to go back in the barn. Overpriced and not interesting. The 65 convertible is the only one with traction at the right price.

    The whole problem today is, that people are truly putting together cars out of junk. They are really trying to get a fortune for a little more than a few bits of rust, and then they find someone that’s willing to put a huge amount of money into the vehicle. This makes it impossible for others to put together an old car , or truck for the fun of it, and kinda hard to get any of the cars anymore. It’s really just very sad to say, but a few years ago, you could have bought just about anything for just a few bucks, and then drove it back to your house and then maybe you’d drive it around for a while before you get around to building a car that you want to out of it, but today, the same thing is going to be costing you tens of thousands more. I just think that it’s terrible for the average person, but I do understand that the people own the shops are making a huge amount of money out of the deals. But it’s not a home garage build that they used to be. I just miss being able to do that in my own garage, and I don’t think that it’s ever going to be happening again.

      Most of the cars featured on this site are being flipped. That means there are cars out there waiting to be found. You aren’t likely going to find them on Craigslist, Facebook, eBay or most other national known websites. The deals are found the old fashioned way, by asking friends, coworkers, neighbors, knocking on doors and small local websites. This has always been the case, even in the early-80’s when I was just out of high school, the cars on Auto Trader were more expensive than you could find if you ere smart enough to look elsewhere.

      Just recently a friend looked at a non running rust free 65 2 door Biscayne with a decent body that came with a 454 for $2,600. It was missing the front seat, a couple of door panels and F & R bumpers. The car was in the sellers name and was currently registered. It had been listed on the Offer Up app for almost 2 months, without any takers.

    Green with a blue interior?

    I’d be more worried about what isn’t shown. It looks like it has Georgia plates but it’s in NYC. I wonder how long it’s been exposed to NYC weather.

    I saw someone said $1,500 at best. That would be as long the underside isn’t too rusty and the frame is okay.

    I’ve got a parts car that’s in better shape exterior wise.

    I’ll bet you a dollar against nest weeks paycheck this car has been in an accident. I’d like to have it. Almost perfect for what I’m looking for…except for the damage. No underside pics. Buyer beware.

    Hmmmn…a other junky old overpriced ford

    Like I said about most of these old heaps…I could drop a big steaming pile on the front and center hood and it wouldn’t look any worse!

    • Steve Clinton

      But you already dropped one on the ’69 Camaro.
