STK 2517 1966 Ford Galaxie 500 Convertible
The 1965-1966 Ford Galaxie 500 was a vastly improved Galaxie model. It boasted more angular styling, a sturdier frame derived from stock-car racing experience and a totally new rear suspension design that incorporated coil-springs, twin control arms and a Panhard rod. Although the new Galaxie was not exactly a track car, its handling was very advanced for the time. Our beautiful, mostly original 1966 Galaxie 500 convertible shows only 54,241 odometer miles and we feel that the number may very well be correct. The Galaxie has received a stunning re-spray of the original Wimbledon White paint and its black power convertible top and original black vinyl interior are in very good condition. The Galaxie is equipped with the factory AM/FM stereo, power seats, tinted windows, power steering and power drum brakes with a dual-master conversion. This convertible model weighs in at over 3,600 lbs, but from a performance standpoint, being this large is not a problem. There is an icon under the hood - the venerable 352/4V FE series engine (X-code). This motor was the mainstay in the full-sized Ford line for many, many years. With the Motorcraft Autolite 4V carb, the 1966 version produced 250HP and 352lb/ft of torque. This engine appears to be is totally original and we believe that it to be the factory motor and never rebuilt. It is backed by Ford's 3-speed Cruise-O-Matic transmission. The car is fitted with original 15” steel wheels, stunning factory Galaxie wheel covers and Firestone radials. There are very, very few Galaxies around like this original classic. It belongs in your Blue Oval collection. ALL VEHICLES SOLD “AS IS”.
