429 ThunderJet 4-Spd: 1969 Ford Galaxie XL Sportsroof

When I saw the photos for this next car I first thought it was a Torino…but then I realized it was an LTD…except it wasn’t. It is a Ford Galaxie (not a Galaxy) XL, which is a big 429 ThunderJet V8 powered 2-door behemoth that has a set of rear sail panels that simulate a fastback roofline. It comes from a time when car designers had free rein to style as they pleased with little concern for cost, crash safety, external visibility, ease of repair, and various other plebeian concerns. And if you thought it looks good from the outside, just look at the driver centric dash pod…wow. Find this 1969 Ford Galaxie XL Sportsroof offered for $23,500 in Glendale, AZ via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!
