This will be a beautiful rare car when finished.The car was a running driving nice driver until about 10 years ago when I took it apart in my backyard climate controlled shop for full restoration ,but too much ot at work and regular life got in the way so I never finished it. It is a true original XL500 convertible 390FE big block automatic with the console and bucket seats. The interior seats are super nice now but as mentioned there are new original style red seat covers and carpet for it as well as the carpeting for the bottom of the door panels. I purchased the car from my uncle in Oklahoma city back in 2008 and he had owned it since 1970. It is originally a San Diego southern California car and my uncle always kept it garaged after taking it to Oklahoma. I have always had it garaged here also.
Car is being sold at . A lot of money and time invested over the last 10 years.
I just noticed in the photos of the back convertible top chrome trim piece that has the snaps on it looks like it is not very good. It is almost perfect, those are reflections in the pictures from the new chrome finish on the piece. These are unique to 1961-62 galaxie convertibles and many are rotted out beyond repair like the original one to this car. It took 6 months working with a specialty early galaxie parts vendor in ohio to get a good one which he rechromed and sent to me. This was about 7 or 8 years ago.These are not available in repop. The original trim piece which is probably beyond getting fixed comes with the car. There is also a new secret audio system that is included with the purchase that is new in the box.
As I was sorting through some more parts in the shop I found some other things that come with the car. There is a complete new set of original style red floor mats new in box, a complete weather strip set new in box, There are 2 sets of front running light/ turn signal assemblies (original not new). There is also a nicer front hood trim piece than the one in the pictures. There is also a spare hood. There are many boxes of assorted original parts and some fasteners that go with it too.
