The Ford Galaxie was Ford’s full-sized car that was built from 1959-1974 when they discontinued the model line.  The Galaxie 500 was the mid-level model that started production in 1962 and was the Ford workhorse during this era.  The high performance engine for that time was the 406 Thunderbird that was rated at 405 hp which moved the car very well.

This example was built to the 406 specs that included a 397 Hi Po motor with 9.7 to 1 pistons, 3 x 2 Carbs, rotating assembly balanced, dual point mechanical distributor, 406 shorty headers, with dump pipes, a T85 3-speed overdrive trans, 3.50 posi, 3′ front brakes, 15 x 5.5 Kelsey Hayes wheels and Traction Master bars.

Overall the car runs very well, has a strong engine and would be a great project for someone looking for a good driver that just needs some TLC.

Unfortunately, the owner passed away and we are assisting the family with the sale.
