This 1964 Ford Galaxie 500 XL Is A Peacock Blue Beauty

When it comes to classic collectible cars, there are many Ford automobiles that buyers get excited about. Often collectors gravitate to models like the Bronco or Mustang, but those aren’t the only collectible Blue Oval rides. Ford has several classics that are desirable, and some can be downright affordable, even for clean and low mile examples. This 1964 Ford Galaxie 500 XL is a perfect example, and it’s for sale on eBay.

The 1964 Ford Galaxie 500 XL is an excellent example of a well-optioned family car from the early 60s in that it’s big, has plenty of room, and has a V-8 engine under the hood. This particular Galaxie 500 XL is finished in peacock blue, and the seller says there isn’t a flaw to be found on it anywhere. The chrome still gleams the interior is perfect, and the 352 cubic-inch V-8 engine has only 35,000 original miles.

The car is entirely original, having never been restored, and the original owner drove it only 25,000 miles. The next 10,000 miles came from the second owner who owned the car for about 12 years. This Galaxie 500 XL fastback is well optioned with a three-speed Cruise-O-Matic automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, dual exhaust, power windows, power seat, power locks, and power antenna. The car even has cruise control that works.

The tires on the car new and are said to be period correct with the original spoke hubcaps. The interior of the car is blue and is all original with bucket seats. The seller notes that all gauges work, and all the switches and lights function correctly. The power windows were recently serviced and go up and down quickly and smoothly.

All original mats and tools are still in the trunk along with an updated sound system featuring a CD changer. The car does have working air conditioning, which is a big deal in hotter states. Vintage four-door Ford iron like this Galaxie don’t command the prices demanded for some other Ford vehicles. This Galaxie 500 XL is on eBay with a Buy It Now price of $16,900. We saw a 1966 Galaxie 500 not long ago that had only 44,000 miles on the clock.

    Very nice. Having a car like that would not be practical for me since I would be afraid to drive it in the winter around here. It’s good that not everybody is obsessed with sports cars but rather good old standard sedans.

    My uncle had one in a station wagon and, as I remember, it may have been a light blue metallic. The 64 Galaxie in my book was the last really beautiful full size Ford ever made. All the chrome and bright work, the lines down the side, just beautiful. Many will say it has too many doors but in a hardtop it doesn’t matter in my book.

    From 1965 and on, they just looked like boxes on wheels. It wasn’t until the Taurus came out did Ford get away with the boxy look and to me it was one of the most ugly designs ever, but Ford couldn’t build enough of them.

    I checked on eBay Motors and it’s no longer listed.

    My dad had a black ’64 2dr w/red int. That year Ford model is one of my favorites!

    This is a very rare and popular color for the 1964 Thunderbird. TBirds this color always get attention at club events and shows.

    The only flaw is the 2 extra doors.

    Well I had a 64 as a teen. I loved that car white top 4 door with a black interior. The paint was a really dark metallic green everyone thought it was black. I had a lot of fun in her….

    My father was Gas Ronda’s painter also Caroll Shelby’s. He was given a 1964 XL by Ford for his service for the company. If there was a Ford in the Winter Nationals in Pomona. He painted it. Long story short! Gas ran his car at Pomona turning high 12s in the quarter stock! That motor was a beast! Why police used them. Badass for sure. 126.6 quarter Badass!
