1969 Ford Galaxie Review

Great Car. — Drives like a cadillac, biggest galaxie they ever built. Mine has a 302 v8 in it, which has an unusual amount of kick for a smallblock. It's an extremely attractive car, with cragar rims and LOUD dual glasspack exhaust, restored by myself and my dad. It also has reapholstered front seats and a new black vinyl top. It runs very well mechanically, I did a lot of engine work, including a valve job, re-coreing the radiator, replacing the water pump, the hoses and belts, replacing the carburetor, the solenoid, the fuel pump, new spark plugs, new points, new rotor cap and rotor, the list goes on . . . but it was fun and totally worth it. love to turn wrenches on this car.

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

Pros: drive this car for comfort and style.

Cons: doesnt handle perfectly, but I would expect that.

Ford Had A Better Idea. — These cars float down the road like you are sitting on your couch. They can pass a truck with little or no effort and look good doing it at the same time doing it. These cars were quite reasonably priced when new. Prices on these collector cars are quite reasonable today and affordable by most anyone too compared to other muscle cars or collector cars of that era. with prices going from $750 for a driver needing work to $12,000 for a 100 point showcar. average price is around $2500 for a car you can drive to work year-round and showoff on the weekend or at cruise nights during the summer months.

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

Pros: I'm actually writing about the '69 Ford XL as it wasn't a Galaxie after 1968 but most anyone will still call it a Galaxie, even car publications like this. This was I believe and most will agree this was the most popular and best looking of the full-size Fords from the 1960's thru the 1970's. The best styling and looks and one of the most powerful as well. These cars were powerhouses and with their tons of foot torque they could move mountains. Everything was optional on these cars but the option list was a mile long. Many of today's cars standard features were optional back then on most vehicles but most of these cars came well equipped with power steering and power disc brakes. no less than 18 exterior colors were available with another 15 interior colors and choices of bench or bucket seasts with a center console and shifter plus vinyl, cloth or cloth and vinyl seats were also available You could have a 4 speed on the floor, a 3 speed manual on the column (3 on the tree) or have an automatic with the shifter on the floor or on the steering  column.Basically no 2 cars were built exactly alike so personalization was always evident. These cars were built in America with American Parts by Americans and were quite reliable and basically built well and solid. That's why so many are still around today. Try finding a 2013 car around 44 years from now, Highly unlikely.

Cons: Unfortunately when these cars were built, gasoline was 28 cents a gallon and no one cared about fuel economy so these cars were built for power and speed and suffered from very poor gas mileage.
