    Shortly after I got out of the army in May 67 my dad bought me a 65 Ford Custom 500, 4 door sedan. It had a 289 with three speed column shift with overdrive and ice cold a/c. I was a newly wed and that bench seat was quite nice at the drive in theater. Unfortunately I slid out of control on a gravel road hitting a power pole broadside bending the car in half. Now if this car were equipped with a/c I would be all over it.
    God bless America

    This is a very nice car. I like the body style and the inside colors are great. Setup very nice all around. Good luck with the sale, wish it was to me.

    Near perfect 54 year old Galaxie XL actually. Nice body style, decent power, one thing that never fails to amaze me on these old cars is the styling…inside an out. Completely foreign in today’s cars. Priced to sell.

    Nice! I’d take this any day over that 240Z beater. I know, different group, but look at what you get, some money pit Z car, or one of the nicest Fords to come down the pike. Sure is a crazy hobby.

    This is a very nice car. All I would do is detail the engine for car shows.

    I’d take this any day over a comparable Chevy.

    2000 miles since 2001? Be ready to make lots of repairs. Cars go to crap when they sit so long. Believe me, I know, I inherited a barn full. Love every one, but after sitting they all need work. It is a labor of love for me. But would make some people crazy.

    Oh geez. . . This is my first car with the exception of the interior colour (mine had the aqua coloured interior). White over aqua, 352 4V, Cruise-O-Matic, dual exhaust, and whatever Ford called their “limited slip” rear end. Far more car than a boy of 16 ever really needed, but oh. . . How I miss that stupid thing.

    Tempted. . .

    I’d swap the 352 for a newer, built 5.OL, 5 or 6 speed trans, better supporting rear end, disc brakes, newer suspension. Leave the body and interior as is. I like cars with ROOM inside and good performance. Today’s fuel squeezers are not very appealing and cost too much. And that’s my two cents worth.
