jeffcat: I have the smaller 64 Fairline 500, but have a 63 Galaxy 406 engine waiting to be installed once I get a few tractor projects finished

That one is a 1968. 1967 still had the vertical headlights.

I went to the 1965 National FFA convention in Kansas City in '65. We went by train from western Washington to Kansas City. Somewhere along the way (or maybe in Kansas City) we toured the Ford plant. The only part I remember is a guy leading in the corners on the roof of a 4 door sedan. I had never seen lead being used before on cars, so was very interested in the process. Not much sanding left to do when he finished with it.

I had a 63 Farlane with the 170" engine and it was plenty, don't know why any body would want a bigger engine. I also had a 65 Olds F85 with the 330 engine and it would have handled a lot better with the 225" engine. Only reason I can see with the big engine is on a drag strip.

1965. No question about it. We had one. Bought brand new in Nov. 64. Ours was dark green 4 door sedan. 240 six. 3 speed automatic. I think 3 speed was called cruise-o-matic. 2
speed was called Ford-o-matic. Very quiet inside cab. Up here in Mn. winters the salt finally got the best of it. Sister was driving it to and from collage and slammed on brakes
for red lite and the frame was so rusted, it buckled and pulled emergency brakes on and she squealed to stop in middle of intersection. Doors were jammed and she had to crawl out
window. Walked someplace to call home and Pa and I went down with 74 Dodge 2 ton, cut brake cables and dragged it home. Jacked it up and welded plates on it but it never drove right
after that. Sold it to some kid for demo derby. Went to county fair to watch derby. He took one hit to front corner and car quit. Never to run again. And that is the story of the
65 Galexi.

I was wondering why nobody took my word for it that it was a ‘65 until I saw my post again...

No wonder. Seems I got happy with the sixes, LOL.

It should’ve read “It’s a 1965.”

Destroyed, I’ve always been a fan of the ‘64 Fairlanes. My second car was a ‘64 Fairlane station wagon. It had the 260 and the three speed, white with blue interior. I put buckets in it and tried to put a floor shifter in it but just couldn’t make it work. That was in ‘79. A fellow down the road had a white two door hardtop with red interior that I always wanted. I asked him many times to sell it to me but he never would. I drove by his sons place the other day and it’s still sitting there, covered with rust, windows down or broken out, and that beautiful interior trashed. So sad.

I’m partial to the ‘64 Galaxie 500 XL convertible myself! 390 auto in mine.
