About Ford Galaxie
The Space Race of the 1950s sent daring explorers into the outer reaches of the universe, while wannabe rocketeers satisfied their need for speed with the Ford Galaxie. A classic car built to resemble a rocket hurtling into space, the Galaxie looks like the renegade offspring of a muscle car and a luxury sedan with its huge engine, roomy passenger area, and extra-wide trunk space. It is a relic from another era, where cars did not fit into tidy categories like they do today. The Ford Galaxie 500 is the epitome of 1960s luxury, and as the high-end option, it includes chrome trim, ashtrays for the rear seats, and air conditioning, a rarity in classic vehicles. A well-preserved early model, such as the 1963 Ford Galaxie Fastback, always attracts plenty of attention, whether it is in a car show or a local grocery store parking lot.
