Car description

The 1968 Galaxie 500 XL convertibleruns and drives and I have driven it on several trips 30-40 miles each direction without any mechanical issues. The paint has good shine although there are a couple areas where it is chipping and a few blemishes. The body is straight and all gaps are good. Overall the floors and frame look very solid. The bumpers have some dents and dings and the dashboard has some cracks in the plastic.The canvas portion of the convertible top is in good condition but the plastic back window is foggy and will need a replacement to be clear. The power convertible top motor turns on when you push the switch but it may need a hose or fluid to get the top opening and closing with power. As of now the top will go up and down manually. The neutral safety switch needs some type of adjustment as when you go to start the car sometimes you need to move the shifter slightly in order to make the car start. The transmission has a minor leak coming from the transmission pan. Lastly the flip headlamps need some work to function with vacuum, the headlamps light up fine. The car has the factory fuel tank and an auxiliary fuel tank. The auxiliary fuel tank is sitting in the trunk and is the one hooked up to the fuel system. I don't know what reason the main tank isn't hooked up. I would suggest the buyer gets the main tank working or secure the auxiliary tank to the floor.
