This 1966 Ford Galaxie 500 XL is a one-family-owned car (father and son) that takes this impressive legacy of care and turns everything up a few notches. After all, a full-size hardtop coupe is a great all-American classic, and this one reminds you of that with a custom red, white, and blue interior. And because there's a big power legacy with these cars, this one now has a professionally built 455 cubic-inch performance motor installed less than 500 miles ago. So as you start to look through the full package, you're going to see impressive investments everywhere from the super-slick paint to an enhanced suspension including four-wheel disc brakes. It's all about showing that respecting 55+ of history also doesn't mean standing on ceremony.

A car like this is terrific because you can just tell the work was carefully planned. It's in the details like how the full custom upholstery still utilizes the classic Galaxie 500 XL seatback trim. And no matter how much this was improved, the most impressive part will always be the crisp look of the classic lines. But what might just be the most appealing is how this classic was made to be a solid driver. You have the kind of beastly power upgrade that could have put this next to Cale Yarborough on the NASCAR track in 1966. But the custom Hotchkis suspension and four-wheel disc brakes mean more control over this classic muscle. So while we love this car for its father and son history, we know there's a lot more here why you're going to love it, too. Call today!!!
