True garage find! I found this Q Code convertible sleeping for 19 years.

I found this Galaxie 500 Q Code convertible sitting in a garage in Elgin, Illinois last July. Evidently, it had been sitting there for the past 18 years. A few years after the car was restored, the owner passed away and left the car to the family and they just parked it in the garage. I flat bedded it to the shop and went through the entire car. The Galaxie has: complete rebuilt engine, rebuilt carb, new battery, new radiator, rebuilt factory (disc) brakes, all fluids have been changed. The front end, rear end and transmission have all been inspected. A/C compressor and components are there, however not hooked up. This convertible runs and drives excellent, it is ready for cruising.

EXTERIOR: The paint has a high gloss finish with some minor flaws. The doors, hood and trunk gaps are dead on. The doors close as they should. The front and rear bumpers have been re-chromed but have some small areas that are peeling. The convertible top is spotless. The cars five spoke aluminum wheels and steel belted radial tires look new.

INTERIOR: The interior features white bucket seats with red accents, console with three speed automatic T Shifter. The factory wood sport steering wheel shows well. The dash and door panels are clean and crisp. The red carpeting shows no signs of wear. Sunpro gauges have been installed under the dash. The dash is not hacked up and still has its original working AM/FM radio. All the convertible top weather strip has just been replaced. The door seals are also new.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: The engine compartment is nicely detailed. The 428 engine has just been rebuilt with less than 10, yes (ten), miles on it. Nearly everything under the hood is new or rebuilt. This car is loaded with options: MSD electronic ignition, power steering, power disc brakes, factory air conditioning and power convertible top.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: The trunk is immaculate. With new fitted mat. The spare tire and jack are in place.

This 1966 Ford Galaxie 500 Q Code convertible is a great example of one of the most iconic big block cars of the 60s. The car is ready to drive and enjoy.
