1964 Ford Galaxie 500 2-Door Hardtop
427 High Performance V-8

Model Year History Overview:
The 1964 Ford Galaxie was a continuation of the major styling facelift that took place previous year.  The line was augmented at mid-year 1963 by a set of 500 and 500XL sport hardtops with ultra-thin fastback rooflines.  Both were available with 427 cid engines.  For 1964, the big cars had more sculptured sheet metal and a horizontal-bar grille, as well as a new roofline for four-door hardtops.  The 1964 lineup collectively won Motor Trend magazine’s “Car of the Year” award on the basis of its “Total Performance” image.  A pair of Galaxie 500XLs tested by the magazine that year were truly impressive.  The 390 V-8 powered one of them from 0 to 60 mph in 9.3 seconds; the 427 made that run in 7.4 seconds.
This is an Original factory “R” code Galaxie 500 427 CID Engine-Powered with a Black on Black color scheme.
