Car Description

1965 Ford Galaxie 500 2-dr Convertible powered by a 5.8L 352cui V8 Ford ‘Fe-Series’ big block engine and driven by a C6 3-spd column-shift automatic transmission.

The 1965 Galaxie saw the introduction of the 3rd generation model (1965-1968), and featured an all-new design with vertically stacked dual headlights, and the cars were taller and bulkier than the previous year’s models. The suspension on the 1965 models was also redesigned, replacing the former leaf-spring rear suspension was a new three-link system, with coil springs. Interiors featured a new instrument panel, as well as a two-way key vehicle access. The Galaxie was used for the top models in Ford’s full-size range and was the competitor to the high-volume full sized Chevrolet Impala’s.

This ’65 Galaxie Convertible was built in Ford’s Pico Rivera (LA), California plant on the 11th September 1965 and was finished in Rangoon Red paint with Red upholstery and White convertible top, and was dispatched to the Seattle, Washington DSO where it has lived all it’s life.

This is a very nice car that has had a repaint and sees the original 352 engine being rebuilt only approx 1500kms ago. Unfortunately, it does have a minor dent in the rear drivers side top quarter panel and the dash pad shoes cracks in several places. The original wheels & hubcaps are available.

This is a ‘rust free’ and a ‘numbers matching’ car.
