1967 Ford Galaxie 500XL Convertible

Ford's Ultimate 60's cruiser - somehwhat overlooked - until NOW!

1967 FORD Galaxie 500XL

It was 1967 and cars were all about size AND power - and the Galaxie was huge, measuring nearly 18ft and packing a 390FE engine, with an available 427!

I bought this great example as a driver, but with a basket-case body.
Restored in my one-car garage were the quarters, doors, trunk floor, under rear seat and more. Original color was a puke-brown, so I chose instead to go with the '67 Sunshine Yellow with a Fairlane stripe - I think it works!
 
The engine is still original, though it likely has had at least a cursory rebuild. I've driven it a lot since I got it in 2005 and it has ALWAYS  run well. Even with putting my foot into it once in a while, it gets fairly good mileage - for a gas guzzling tank!
