This is the right generation to step up into a Galaxie. Ford’s full-sized offering had an ideal look of muscle car aggression with executive-class sophistication. Up front the vertical stacked headlights make a bold statement, and an artfully crafted grille takes up all the space in-between.
So this one will have you rolling down all the windows on this pillar-less hardtop just so people can get a better look at everything. The vintage feeling is everywhere on this one right down to the artful steering wheel with the correct center cap. There are even fun details, like how the AM radio also has the classic FM converter (all there for display.
That’s why it also fires up and runs well. The V8 has nice torque to get you off the line, and there’s plenty of power on the road, but the aim is not to be a muscle machine. The Galaxie has a dignified top-tier kind of feeling that you understand with the subtler note from the dual exhaust.
