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.

After the horrible weather last winter, it's hard to look forward for the season to return this year. For those readers in much of the country, the snow is going to be flying soon, and with it comes salt on the roads. That means Ford's regional recall for the 2007-2008 Edge and Lincoln MKX arrives at the perfect time because they are at risk for corrosion.

The campaign covers 204,448 examples of the models in 21 states, plus the District of Columbia and some provinces of Canada. In total there are 186,024 vehicles in need of repair in the US and 18,424 in Canada.
According to Ford, it's possible for the area, "under the reinforcement brackets where the fuel tank is mounted" to corrode. If this happens, there might be a gas smell in the vehicle or even a fuel leak could develop. In fact, the automaker reports that one fire could be related to the problem but no injuries or accidents are reported.
Ask any car engineer what's the biggest variable in achieving fuel economy targets, and he'll tell you "the driver." If one human can't understand human driving behavior enough to be certain about an innocuous number like miles per gallon, how is an autonomous car supposed to figure out what hundreds of other drivers are going to do in the course of a day? Ford has enlisted the help of Stanford and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to find out.

Starting with the automated Fusion Hybrid introduced in December, MIT will be developing algorithms that driverless cars can use to "predict actions of other vehicles and pedestrians" and objects within the three-dimensional map provided by its four LIDAR sensors.
The Stanford team will research how to extend the 'vision' of that LIDAR array beyond obstructions while driving, analogous to the way a driver uses the entire width of a lane to see what's ahead of a larger vehicle in front. Ford says it wants to "provide the vehicle with common sense" as part of its Blueprint for Mobility, preparing for an autonomous world from 2025 and beyond.
Ford has a long history of offering special editions of its legendary Mustang. One of the most vaunted of those trim packages, though, has only been offered twice. The first time was in 2001, and then again in 2008. Yes, we're talking about the Bullitt.
Named for the infamous Dark Highland Green Mustang Fastback driven by Steve McQueen in the 1968 cop melodrama Bullitt, the car was famous for not just its pilot, but the high-speed chase it took part in during the movie. Now, we think we have images of the next Bullitt.
According to our spy photographers, the paint is a "dead-ringer" for the Dark Highland Green that has signified these special edition Mustangs. While we're inclined to agree, it's also worth pointing out that this shade looks very similar to one of the 2015's other new colors, Guard. We've yet to see one on the road (let alone in such dreary conditions), so it's tough to say for certain.
