Owning this 1968 Ford Galaxie XL doesn't feel like buying a car...It feels like joining a legacy. There has only been one previous owner, and so you get everything you want from the original window sticker, to the factory A/C interior, to the numbers-matching 428 V8 under the hood.
Ford's Galaxie XL coupe had a new and radical face for 1968. The look was downright sporty with headlights hidden behind the full width grille. The body design retained the kick-up at the rear, which goes particularly well with this fastback roof. Overall, this was arguably one of Ford's most attractive designs of the 1960s because it perfectly blended elegance and performance. Green was a popular color in this era, but the factory-correct Lime Gold is one that still looks particularly good today (collectors always love it on Mustangs.) Plus, this hue is nicely complemented by the wide chrome bumpers and stylish 15-inch turbine-style wheel covers. So while there have been the right maintenance and updates over the last half-century, this one-owner car received the right kind of respect and care that will have people calling it a true survivor.
Inside is more of this performance and luxury mix. After all, bucket seats were a sporty option, but these are also wide and plush enough for long trips. And the center console with horseshoe shifter is something we love on muscle cars. This is a true cruiser with the dual-spoke steering wheel giving you a terrific view of the extra wide speedometer. And everything on the dash is in its rightful place, including the AM radio that's still on display. But your favorite feature will be the factory air conditioning that's still blowing cold. After all, no matter if you have this full-sized coupe packed with people, or you're just on a solo cruise, this premium Galaxie still knows how to keep everyone comfortable.
Lift the hood to see the engine bay filled with plenty of blue oval power. This is an Q-code car, which means the big block 428 cubic-inch V8 with a four-barrel carburetor on top. It's the original numbers-matching motor, and it looks authentic right down to the bold blue block paint. And while this has a ton of originality, you also see signs of the right care with newer components like the master cylinder, belts, and alternator. The 428 was great for everything from the Mustang to the Thunderbird, and as the top-dog option for the '68 Galaxie it nicely upholds the power and luxury nature of this Ford. In fact, this poised driving experience even includes a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and front disc brakes.
