1967 Galaxie 500 Convertible 390 V8, 2 barrel carb, 3 speed Automatic. Runs great!
I’ve owned this car for 10 years, and previously it was owned for 25 years by the same guy in the Peninsula.
This is not a show car, it’s a daily driver. It turns heads everywhere I go, and always starts right up.
I drive this car mostly on weekends, and feel comfortable taking it on long drives, which I do.
Car looks original not modified.

A. Motor was rebuilt 5 years ago, no receipts, a friend did the job in my garage.
B. It had a new convertible top installed a year ago with a rebuilt convertible motor, and brand new hydraulic system. Works perfect.
C. Power front disc brake conversion 2 years ago. ( New discs, master cylinder, power booster etc…)
D. New Starter about 5 years ago.
E. Brand new battery. Everything works as it should
F. Oil changed every 3000 miles, and transmission oil done a year ago.
G. comes with original shop manual.

Paint is 7/10 looks great from 10 feet away, but has cracks scratches, and slight bubbling (no serious rust)
Interior is 6/10 could use a re upholster but looks fine with seat covers. Seats 6 (split bench in front).
Small oil leak (I believe from pan) but all of these old cars drip a little bit of oil, and I never have to add oil between oil changes.
All in all, a great looking/driving car for fun in the sun, or a great car for a cosmetic restoration while driving it.
Why selling- My kids have cars now, and we have limited parking.
Please don’t waste my time with silly offers (I don’t need to sell this car). I Just drove it to Bodega bay yesterday (92 degree weather), and it is so much fun!!!
Thanks, Abe
