Car description


This is a 1966 Ford Galaxie 500 with only 86,921 miles since new. There current owner is the third owner of the car - he is a buddy who asked me to list because he has too many cars. This Galaxie was purchased on August 1, 1966 at Barkhouser Motors in Danville Virginia by the first owner, a woman. Her name is in the owner's manual along with the warranty card pictured below. The car was purchased from the second owner by the current owner about a year and a half ago. The car has had one repaint in the original Arcadian Blue. The trim and chrome are original. The blue vinyl interior is original with the exception of new carpet. Engine is the 390 Z code with 300 horsepower. When the third owner bought the car the second owner had replaced the original valve covers and air cleaner with chrome ones. The second owner also replaced the mufflers. The engine fires right up and runs great. It has a new carburetor, fuel pump and fuel lines. The original carburetor goes with the sale of the car. Transmission is a three-speed manual - 3 on the tree. Car has manual steering and manual drum brakes. Except for the added chrome parts, carburetor and extra gauges this vehicle is pretty much original. It has new tires with one- inch white walls. Everything works properly on the car except the original AM radio does not play, nor does the original clock work. All lights, including the four way flashers and the glove box light work. Car runs and drives and rides great. It is a true survivor car that you can drive home. Email any question and if you'd like to set up a time to view the car email for the owner's phone number.
