Take it from coast-to-coast

The second generation of the Ford Galaxie was built between 1960 and 1964 in a number of locations across America.

The large, opulent cruiser was available in a number of different body styles that included a two and four-door sedan, a two and four-door hardtop and a two door convertible.

The Galaxie was made available with a number of different engines, and comprised a 3.7lt inline six-cylinder and a 4.7lt, 4.8lt, 5.8lt, 6.4lt, 6.6lt and 7.0lt V8.

Power from these donks was sent to the rear wheels via either a three-speed manual or a three-speed Cruise-O-Matic automatic transmission.

The Ford Country Squire was the wagon variant of the Galaxie and, while it bore a different moniker, some of the Country Squires were said to have ‘Galaxie 500’ badging on the glovebox.

This particular Galaxie is a ’64 Country Squire wagon and, according to the seller, the vehicle has travelled 63,500 miles from new.

The seller adds that the Galaxie is equipped with the 4.7lt (289ci) Windsor V8 which is mated to the three-speed automatic.

The Galaxie is $22,000 and anyone keen on this ultimate summertime cruiser can view the full listing here
