1964 Ford Galaxie 500 XL 2 door 390 from North America


They truly don't make cars like this anymore


Fuel pump went bad, rebuilt for $35.

Mufflers needed replacing. Used lifetime warranty from Midas mufflers to replace at no charge.

Master cylinder was rebuilt for $60.

Turn signal canceling cam broke - replaced for $35.

Original engine, never rebuilt. Runs like a top.

General Comments:

Grandpa purchased new, kept in perfect condition.

I received in 1980 - only driven to shows and events.

The car is very powerful, comfortable and solid.

15 mpg on the highway, 12 around town.

Other than fuel, it's very inexpensive to operate.

Other than tires and shocks, it's all original.

A real testament to Ford's emphasis on quality that year.

A real joy to drive.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Clarification: the replacement mufflers under the "lifetime warranty" from Midas are not "free" unless they just toss it into your trunk.

If you want it installed, you'll pay for labor plus all the clamps, hangers, pipes and whatever else they will tell you needs to be replaced.
