Whomever purchased this Galaxie originally opted for performance, thanks to the 390 cubic inch V8, a Cruise-O-Matic 3-speed automatic transmission, and a set of 3.00 gears to make it comfortable on the highway. The engine compartment appears to have been detailed recently, and the burly 390 starts with a throaty rumble from the Flowmaster dual exhaust system. Remember that in these pre-Mustang days, the Galaxie was Ford’s performance model as well, and this big ragtop has impressive moves, as if it weighs 500 pounds less than it does. The chassis is solid and clean, with none of the usual convertible worries about rusty floors, and it rides like the massive American luxury car that it is. It’s been fitted with cross-drilled front disc brakes, which are just visible through the Torque Thrust wheels that are wearing 235/60/15 BFGoodrich T/A radials.
