Rad 1967 Ford Galaxie 500 With A Cummins Turbo-Diesel: Craigslist Find

Up for sale on Craigslist out of Atlanta, Georgia is the raddest vintage oil-burner that you ever did see: a 1967 Ford Galaxie 500 sedan with a 5.9-liter Cummins turbo-diesel knocking away under the hood.

This Ford Galaxie started life with a 390 cubic-inch (6.4-liter) big-block V8, but that engine was ditched in favor of the aforementioned Cummins mill – for perfectly legitimate reasons, we’re sure. Both the engine, and the 4-speed TorqueFlite automatic to which it’s paired, came out of a 1993 Dodge Ram D250 – a three-quarter-ton pickup. At the back is the Ford Galaxie’s factory 9-inch rear-end.

This ’67 Ford Galaxie has been listed for 15 days as of this writing – far too long for such a unique and handsome vintage cruiser, although we think we might understand why it’s gone unsold. Apart from all the extra racket introduced by that big, heavy diesel up front, this car was optioned without air-conditioning, and continues without it to this day. Call us pampered, but Georgia seems like the sort of climate where working A/C is a must-have feature on any car.

Still, if you’re game for a little hot, sticky discomfort on your morning commute, this 1967 Ford Galaxie with Cummins turbo-diesel would be an awesome machine to turn up in.

    Tesla Model S should be a Galaxie w/all wheel drive.
    The Ford Mark (blue), should be lit up with blue at night; behind it. Give the rest of the line: black.
    I think the Thunderbird should be all wheel drive, like a T-Bird/GT. Off-road for 2 and a dog. Suspension mods to 36″ from the ground: raise it up. Cargo back, no trunks, stow away doors w/clip on mirrors and windows. Flip off Moonroof for a partial, dark glass. Under rig spare, comes with a bike rack, music, fog lamps in Facia and overhead. Maybe some camping stuff and a Rivian Camper stove.
    There are so many vehicles in your years of inventory, Ford essentially doesn’t need more than 2-3 guys piecing it up. Whether its a Probe, Brezza, Alpe, GTK, or Fiera.
