RealRides of WNY - 1967 Ford Galaxie 500

Came across this 1967 Ford Galaxie 500 a while back in Tonawanda. It’s hard to believe, but just a scant five years earlier, the Galaxie 500 sat atop the full-size Ford lineup, but by 1967 it ranked below the sporty Ford XL and the near-luxury, ahem… LTD by Ford. I guess we here on the RealRides staff have always had a soft spot for these big Fords, what with the parents owning two 1963s (a sedan and a station wagon), and a couple of Galaxie 500 2-door hardtops — a 1965 (in which we took our road test in the summer of 1970) and a gigantic 1971 – in Chrome Yellow with a black vinyl top and Ford’s fake mag-style wheelcovers. This black ’67, on the other hand, is shod in a set of actual mag-style wheels. Not sure Dad would approve, Lol…
