1964 Ford Galaxie 500 Big block 390 4 speed

This is one sweet car!  I recently found this car buried n an old guys garage!  The last time It was registered and on the road was in the early 90s. 

The man I purchased the car from said that the motor was professionally rebuilt shortly before he parked it.  He also said that when he purchased the car sometime in the 1980's, he got it from Missouri.  Until it was brought here, it was a Missouri car only, explaining how rust free it is.  This Galaxie was wrecked back in the 1970s and the original owner in Missouri had the car fixed.  The title on the car reflects that, as it says rebuilt on it.  The car is nice and straight. It drives perfectly straight and feels nice and tight.  The car makes no abnormal noises, and the transmission shifts nice and crisp. 

The pictures make this car look really nice, and it is, however I want to be perfectly clear that the car needs some work. It has been sitting for a long time, so as you might expect, some of the lights don't work, a lower quarter panel patch is showing some blisters in the paint. The car needs a good tune up, etc..

The gas has been drained and refilled with fresh gas. A new fuel pump was installed, points were cleaned and adjusted, and she fired right up!!

Apparently this car used to do some racing back in the 1960's. It has a locked rear axle which is great for drag racing, but not so great for the street, but that is just my opinion. 

The interior is all original and in very good shape. It does have some small tearing on the seams of the seats.

NOTE: The wheels and tires pictured do NOT go with the sale of the car.  I will put on the original wheels and hub caps.

This car also comes with some misc parts including a perfect original hood from a 1964 Galaxie. 

Please call or email with any and all questions 630-624-4242  My name is Matt

Ford, Renault, VW shareholder oppose French aid for PSA/Peugeot-Citro"en

Mon, 29 Oct 2012 14:01:00 EST

Pots and kettles, glass houses and stones - that's a little of what we appear to have going on in the European car market. New reports say that that three European automakers have registered their opposition to a loan deal that PSA/Peugeot-Citroën is working on with the French government. Peugeot's finance arm, Banque PSA Finance, is struggling with its debts and has been downgraded by Moody's to its lowest investment-grade classification, one step above junk. This makes it more expensive for a potential buyer to finance a car through Peugeot. The last thing Peugeot needs is more difficulty selling cars in the tough European market, and the situation will only worsen if the bank's credit worthiness takes another hit.
A deal being worked on would have the French government offer €7 billion ($9B U.S.) in bonds to guarantee the bank's loans, which would give the institution some breathing room to manage its debts and lower its interest rates. Outside of that, a group of banks would provide other, non-guaranteed loans to the bank to further help its position. In exchange for state help, though, the government wants seats on Peugeot's board for worker representatives and a government liaison, along with factory and worker guarantees. The Peugeot family would maintain control of the company.
So what we have is government assistance being provided to a car company's finance arm, akin to the way General Motors' GMAC (now Ally Financial) and Chrysler Financial got help in their time of need. What we also have is Ford and Renault, and Germany's State of Lower Saxony, the second-largest shareholder in Volkswagen, voicing their concern about the proposal, because they say it could create an unfair competitive advantage for Peugeot. Everyone in Europe's down market is fighting for every sale, and if Peugeot gets help to keep its auto loan costs down, it figures to help buyers choose Peugeot or Citroën.

Ford profiles surprisingly affluent Focus ST buyers

Fri, 08 Nov 2013 17:44:00 EST

It comes as no surprise when Ford says that 32-percent of Focus ST buyers are under 35, but we weren't expecting this: the average annual salary of Focus ST buyers is $127,000. Twenty-two percent of non-ST Focus buyers are under 35, while their average annual salary is $67,000.
We like the Focus ST because it has 252 horsepower, is genuinely fun to drive and offers great value for performance-minded car enthusiasts; facts that are not lost on customers, it seems. Ford says that the Focus ST has the highest percentage of conquest sales for a non-hybrid model it sells, and that the top-four trade-ins are from Honda, Chevrolet, Mazda and Toyota. Demand for the hot Focus is strongest in Los Angeles, Detroit, Houston and Orlando.
"[The Focus ST is] having this kind of halo effect for other vehicles we'd hoped for when we invested in the ST brand," says John Felice, vice president of US marketing, sales and service, because it's helping to boost sales of other Ford vehicles.

Ford tumbles to second worst in Consumer Reports reliability survey, list dominated by Japanese [w/video]

Mon, 29 Oct 2012 15:59:00 EST

It's no secret that MyFord Touch has had its share of problems since being introduced, but the most recent reliability survey from Consumer Reports shows just how much this infotainment system has affected Ford. Just two years ago, the automaker was in the top 10 for the institute's reliability rankings, but since then, it has tumbled to the second-lowest rung just above dead-last Jaguar. In addition to MyFord Touch, CR also attributes a handful of new products that have had issues right out of the gate.
Compiled from 1.2 million subscriber surveys, this year's auto reliability survey heavily favors Japanese automakers, with eight of the 10 spots hailing from Japan. Toyota brands grabbed the top three spots (Scion, Toyota and Lexus - in that order) with Mazda, Subaru, Honda and Acura filling the next four spots. The only non-Asian automaker cracking the top 10 was Audi at number eight.
Audi climbed a total of 18 spots from last year, and Cadillac and GMC round out this year's top gainers breaking into the top 15. Helping Cadillac's upward movement, the CTS Coupe was named the most reliable domestic car. Lincoln, Volvo and Chrysler join Ford on this year's biggest loser list.
