That was my first ride, paid $200.00 for it, rings were so bad it would smoke for 5 minutes after starting. Ugly pale blue color no where near as nice as yours. Wish I had kept it to restore,

Sweet, reminds me of a Thunderbolt.
When I think back on all those 1960s Fords I had as a kid for cheap...
1965 galaxies convertible
1964 falcon
1966 Mustang
1967 cougar xr7 with 289hipo
1969 cougar with 351w
The one that hurts the most..1967 390gt Fairlane
All cheap beaters that I wished I kept.

I'm a GM guy but that's one of my all time favorite cars. There was a Senior Master Sergeant in my unit back in the early 90's that had a red one. Loved that car....

Nice; restomods are a great choice if it's something you intend to drive.

My 1st car was a 64 siver(gray),black top , black interior, bucket seats.
but it was an automatic 352.
air was cold and the girl friends did not like the buckets and console

I ended up pulling the motor and trans and dropped into a 65 T bird years later

wish I still had most of the cars I had when young.
65 Mustang 2+2,65 T bird, 65 La mans, 67 cougar, 55 F100 PU, 51 International PU

Ist new one was a 79 ranchro

Nice! My first car was a 1964 Buick Lesbre and some day I'm going to get a 1964 Buick Wild Cat.

Those were special engines. What carb configuration do you have?

I used to drive a cousin's 1961 Starliner with the 406 side oiler @ 375 horsepower with a 3 speed. First gear was so low you couldn't get the power down to the road.

Right now it has a big Holley on it. It came with 2 four barrels which they gave me. I think I will put the two 4ís back on.

Nice ride!

An older friend of mine has two '64 Galaxies. He had them as long as I've been alive. Back in the 70's they were both in great shape and he drove them around. One basically stock and the other one modified a bit.

Now they both are in a garage under his house torn apart and buried under 30 years worth of stuff. He has the original drivetrain for both (390&427) and a few spare 390's. He has the factory 2x4 set up but switched it to trip deuces. It's kind of a shame to see them torn apart and buried, he won't even consider selling them though. Maybe one day...
