1967 Ford Galaxie Fastback
1967 Ford Galaxie Fastback
Reading the 1967 Ford Galaxie magazine ads, Ford did everything in their power to push the point of strength and durability, as well as quiet ride. They jumped the Galaxie 500 off the Ski Jump in Lake Placid, they did a steeple chase run with the car. Anything they could to prove the point of solid construction. Well-constructed, yes, but quietly the car was making the point that the engine was large enough not only to move the car smoothly, but really fast. Looks like a family car, performs like a muscle car, although the term muscle car was in its infancy...but they were working on it.
This beautiful Galaxie 500XL Fastback, has been redone with not only strength and durability in mind, but also a big emphasis on beauty. Super straight lines, great gaps, all steel, chrome and vinyl, a beautiful example of a Ford classic that you can literally get in, turn the key and start the party.
Crimson Metallic adorns the exterior, and one has to look very hard to find fault with it. Some brite work shows some pitting in particular on the tail lights, door handles, and badging, however it appears original to this car. Bumpers are straight and very clean, as is the front grille, and headlight bezels. Shiny window surrounds have new rubber trim inserted and are in very nice condition. Edge trim shows some patina but is otherwise unremarkable. All glass is clean and scratch free. Standard Galaxie 500 hubcaps are wrapped by new red line tires.
Going from the ground up, new black carpet covers all floor surfaces. The black vinyl bucket seats in front are showing nicely with no tears or rips and have maintained their shape. The rear bench appears virtually new and matches the front buckets with pattern and texture. A wonderful center console, in black and chromed plastic and metal shows slight wear but is in good condition. A new dash has been installed, and padding on top is near perfect, has no sun damage or cracks. Door panels appear original and some of the chromed plastic trim on the panels has become de laminated, however panels are in good condition. A new headliner tops the interior off. Seen is factory air conditioning, and an integrated push button AM radio within the dash.
A 390Cci V8 is topped by a 2-barrel carburetor and bolted to a 3-speed automatic transmission that shifts smooth as silk. Power drum brakes all around, power steering, a new windshield washer bag, and squirter pump, and a new battery have just been installed. Consigner also states new pushrods have been put into the motor.
Looking underneath, a virtually rust free (including surface rust) environment can be seen. Frame is very stable as the junction of the body and the frame. Also, a newly installed full exhaust system is noted.
An overall nice presentation, good running, smooth shifting, turn key '67 ready for more fun miles, right here at Classic Auto Mall. Solid!
