Untouched Powerhouse: Rare 1964 Ford Galaxie 500 Packs a 427/4-Speed Combo!

Prepare to be blown away by the untold story of a remarkable 1964 Ford Galaxie 500. When buyers stepped into Ford dealerships in ’64, they had a range of engine options, but one particular Galaxie stood out from the crowd. This awe-inspiring survivor, now available on eBay in Guttenberg, Iowa, is equipped with a breathtaking 427ci V8 that transformed this family car into a true performance beast. Purchased from the original owner’s estate, this Galaxie has been lovingly preserved and is listed at a BIN price of $87,500. Our keen-eyed Barn Finds writer Jonny C discovered this gem, and it’s a sight to behold.

The Galaxie’s original owner drove it straight off the lot and used it as a daily driver until the mid-1970s when health issues forced him to store it away. When the seller acquired the car in 2002, they were astounded by its pristine condition. This Galaxie has never experienced rain, spending its entire life sheltered in a garage. Remarkably, it remains unrestored and free from any accident damage. The Guardsman Blue and Wimbledon White paint still shines beautifully, and the exterior and underside show no signs of rust. The chrome, glass, and factory spinner wheel covers are flawless, hinting at the hidden performance capabilities of this classic.

Under the hood lies the secret that sets this Galaxie apart—a rare 427ci Q-Code V8 engine. Only 654 lucky owners opted for this powerhouse, generating a staggering 410hp. Paired with a four-speed manual transmission, this combination propels the Galaxie to rival most muscle cars of its time. With a quarter-mile time of 14.5 seconds and a top speed of 137mph, this classic Ford means serious business. The original owner even added power steering for an improved driving experience. With extensive documentation and a confirmed odometer reading of 52,000 miles, this numbers-matching beauty is ready to hit the road with its new owner.

Stepping inside the Galaxie reveals an equally impressive interior. Trimmed in Code 72 Medium Blue and Light Blue Diamond Lustre vinyl, the upholstery remains in impeccable condition. Wrinkles are barely noticeable, and there is no evidence of wear or abuse. The carpet and dash pad show no signs of fading or damage, and the bright trim pieces add a touch of elegance. While the original owner added a Faria dash-mounted tachometer and air conditioning, the latter has since been removed, preserving the vehicle’s originality. This Galaxie 500 combines comfort and performance, making it an irresistible find for any enthusiast. With its top-tier price tag, its exceptional originality, outstanding condition, and remarkable drivetrain, this Galaxie is destined to find a new home. Could it be yours?
