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.

You know who you are. There's probably a few of you reading; the ones that say, "Why would I spend $27,000 on a new Mazda MX-5 when I could get a used Chevrolet Corvette with more power." Yes, we're talking to you, used car proponents. While it is a fair argument, it's not like used cars don't come with drawbacks of their own, though.

In an attempt to put this new-versus-used argument to bed once and for all, Matt Farah of the The Smoking Tire has picked up a pair of $25,000 cars - a used, but lightly modified, 2003 BMW M3 and a 2013 Ford Fiesta ST. Naturally, there's a comparison.
Farah, as he's wont to do, does get into the nitty gritty of what each car is like to drive, and discusses the merits of used and new-car shopping. But as he rightly points out while testing the M3, "So, it is a good car. But like any used car, it really does depend on the individual car."

Each of those words are synonyms for big and bold - combine all four and you've got one of the largest, most powerful and robust street-going sport utility vehicles in the world.
John Hennessey is a Texas-based tuner known for creating some of the fastest and most capable cars on the planet. Over the past two decades, machines like the Viper Venom 550, Ford GT 1000 Twin Turbo, HPE 700 LS9 Camaro and the almighty Venom GT have emerged from the Hennessey Performance garage. And those are just the celebrated flagships; the company has modified thousands of other street cars including those from Audi, Bentley, Cadillac, Ferrari, Ford, Porsche and Toyota, to name a few.
Ask and you shall receive. Remember that previous report suggesting that the 2015 Ford Mustang getting a four-cylinder EcoBoost engine, and that it would be sold in Europe only and not the United States? Well, according to Road & Track, the rumor is only partially true - The Mustang will get the engine, but it is indeed coming to America.
Additionally, according to RT, the 3.7-liter V6 will continue to serve as the base engine, and since it offers up a stout 305 horsepower in its current form, it's likely that the 2.3-liter four-cylinder EcoBoost will produce a bit more than that. At the top of the range, the Mustang GT will continue to soldier on with a V8 engine, which should continue to send over 400 horsepower to the rear wheels.
Finally, while we agree 100 percent with RT's heartfelt request for a paddle-shift automatic, we certainly expect that the EcoBoost 'Stang will be offered with a manual transmission as standard equipment. This is a Mustang, after all...
