1964 Ford Galaxie 500 on 2040-cars
Mandan, North Dakota, United States
I am not Ford man but I had to save this car. The previous owner was going to use it for a demolition derby. I couldn't stand to see a Galaxy 2dr fastback get smashed.
The car was originally a 289 with a 3 speed cruise-o-matic. I swapped out the 289 for a low milage Ford reman 302 (18K). I added a 4 barrel, edelbrock intake and brand new Edelbrock 650 carb. The sale will include the original 289 motor and tranny to take it back to original, if you prefer.
This car is not a rust bucket like most. It is rusted in the rear body mounts. floor pans are good, just rust pin hole in passenger side. This is indicated in the pics. quarters are pretty sold, not totally rust like most. rocker are ok also. one hole in the drivers side rocker. trunk is solid except for body mount.
The front windshield is cracked but all the other glass is good, not faded or discolored.
Has factory power steering.
Interior is rough and in need of total restoration. Carpet and headliner are gone, but the rest is there. seats are torn and dash is cracked. Gauges all seem to work.
I only took a few pics. I thought I would let buyers request pics as you want.
A tree fell on the hood so it will probably need a new skin. See in pics.
I do have the hood I just haven't put it back on since engine swap.
That is about all I can think of for now. I have tried to explain the car as best I can so let me know what information you need.
A 500 dollar deposit is do via paypal within 24 hours of successful bid. the remaining amount is do in cash on day of pickup or within 4days of auction end via cashiers check.
Buyer is responsible for all shipping costs. The car runs and drives nice so it can be loaded easily, i prefer no International bidding.

Auto enthusiasts love a good debate, whether it's Mustang versus Camaro or Ferrari against Lamborghini. But how about a battle between two very different vintages of classic pickup trucks? In this case, the fight is between a 1979 Dodge Li'l Red Express and a 1933 Ford Model 46 truck with a flathead V8.
The shootout comes courtesy of the internet series Generation Gap, and its concept is super-simple. One guy prefers classics, and the other likes newer rides. They choose a category, pick two vehicles and put them head to head. In this case, neither is exactly modern, though. The Ford is more than old enough to receive Social Security checks, and the Dodge is hardly a young whippersnapper.
Other than both being pickups, these two models were made to serve very different functions. The Li'l Red Express was basically the progenitor of today's muscle trucks, with a big V8 that made it one of the quickest new models in its day (admittedly, 1979 was a rough time for automotive performance). On the other hand, the '33 Ford was just meant to work, with little pretense for anything else. One of the hosts describes it as "the simplest, most difficult" vehicle he's driven because of the tricky double clutchwork necessary to shift gears. Scroll down to watch the video and try to decide which of these two American classics you would rather have in your garage.
Like most quakes, the 2014 Ford F-150 Tremor caught us by surprise. We weren't expecting Ford to offer up another version of its best-seller so soon before the truck's full redesign, but that's exactly what the company is doing.
While Ford calls the Tremor a "performance truck," the new pickup doesn't play on the same level as the SVT Raptor does on dirt, or even the long-gone SVT Lightning did on pavement. Think of it as a parts bin sport truck that probably does a better job looking the part than acting it. The Tremor utilizes the same twin-turbo, 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 available across the F-150 lineup, producing 365 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque, but matches it with a 4.10 rear axle - the shortest final drive ratio you can get in an F-150 - for the strongest possible acceleration.
The Tremor does do a decent job looking the part. Available only in short-wheelbase, regular cab configuration with your choice of two- or four-wheel drive, it struts around wearing the F-150's FX Appearance Package, flat black accents, 20-inch black wheels, HID headlights and a special exterior graphics package. The Tremor is the only regular cab F-150 with a flow-through center console, which means it also gets a floor-mounted shifter and bucket seats that are covered in black leather with red piping. Some brushed metal accents and steering wheel with red stitching round out the interior upgrades.
The Ford booth here at SEMA is practically a 1970s throwback with all these customized vans sitting front and center. And we're completely fine with that. Take the black and yellow (black and yellow, black and yellow) 2014 Transit Connect from Mobsteel above. It's got a great stance, sits on steel wheels and has a pretty cool paint job and graphics package to boot.
Of course, that's not the only van you can see at the Ford booth. In fact, there are 10 Transit Connect vans on display from Ford here at SEMA, and you can see them all in our live gallery of high-res images above. Then, if you want to know more about each specific model, feel free to scroll down to read all about these vans in the official press release from Ford.
