    Gorgeous Luxury — This was my second '60s dream-boat, and my first Ford. Beauty may be in the eye of the beholder, but I believe that 1967 was the "sweet spot" for mid-'60s Ford Galaxie's design, and I fell in love with this car at first sight. Beautiful, 1950s-inspired fenders and heavily-clipped semi-fins towards the rear, rocket-red taillights, and stacked quad headlights make this an all-around elegant car. This one happens to be the four-door non-fastback model, though while I would love to own the fastback, I find that the utility of having four doors instead of two is very welcome when transporting cargo or passengers. The passenger cabin and the trunk are very roomy, and just about anything within reason can be transported in this car. The engine in this car is the original small-block 289, rebuilt by the previous owner. For such a small V8, it is able to put out plenty of power to move the car no matter how loaded-down it may be. Additionally, the smaller engine allows the car to achieve astounding gas mileage for its size; I've recorded around 20 MPG on average with careful throttle use. When I want to have a little fun, leaning hard on the gas causes this car to lunge up to speed with thrilling eagerness, a testament to the 289's launch abilities, even if overall top speed is nothing extraordinary (the fastest I've gone is 85, though it feels like the motor can take the car just a little bit faster.) The power steering feels a bit stiffer than that of her rival Chevrolet stablemate. Despite this, I find the power steering to still be smoother than many new vehicles I have driven while working for auto dealerships. True to the nature of big cars, the Galaxie can glide over speed bumps with the best of them. Excellent damping, and a very smooth ride. While cornering at regular speeds, body roll has never seemed anything out of the ordinary, not too excessive but certainly present. I've found that, true to the old Ford stereotype, replacing parts in this car can at times be quite an expensive and difficult nightmare in comparison to working on her GM rival. It's something I'm happily willing to look past, however, considering all of the merits of the car.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Strong engine, Very roomy cabin and trunk, Sleek styling, Decent gas mileage, Incredibly smooth ride

    Cons: Expensive or rare parts

    I Like It Alot Now Can't Wait Till She's Done — i just bought the car and have not started to do the rebuild on it yet. it runs but does not drive. i am hoping to get it driving by the end of the summer. i got it a project for myself and my two sons to complete together. The car now runs and drives we rebuilt the drum brakes all around and have taken out the gas tank sealed it and put it back in.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Fun

    Cons: It was a good deal
