Vehicle Description

This magnificent 1968 Ford Galaxie XL Fastback 390 four-speed is featured proudly at the Maxmotive Pittsburgh showroom. It has the 390 FE big block teamed with a 4-speed manual and Hurst shifter. The original build sheet accompanies the car. Other valuable literature includes a thick stack of receipts, the 1968 Ford Better Ideas brochure, a 1968 Ford and Mercury Shop Manual, a 1968 Passenger Car Maintenance and Lubrication Manual, a print ad featuring the XL Fastback, and Ford’s Helpful Hints for a Safer Ride. The big FE engine has been treated to a dual Holley four-barrel setup, Lunati cam (cam specs included), and MSD ignition. The exhaust system is a standout, starting with coated headers, then dual stainless pipes with crossover. The sound is marvelous. The rich deep cherry red has a high gloss and looks great on the full size Galaxie. Subtle black accent stripes adorn the rocker panels along with the 390 emblems. Bucket seats and a full length center console highlight the interior, which also features a Hurst floor shifter. The interior presents superbly and as original. The factory AM/8-track radio and original clock are not operating, but they are present and look great. A Sunpro tach and Summit gauges under the dash monitor the vitals. Period correct dog dish hubcaps combine with BFGoodrich Silvertown redline radials for a muscular look. An excellent example of sixties full-size muscle, this Better Idea 1968 Ford Galaxie XL Fastback has big block power, a four-speed manual, and some solid hot-rodding upgrades resulting in a very drivable and desirable package.

MAXmotive specializes in collectible classic and custom vehicles. We have more than 200 vehicles in our collection and have sold dozens nationwide and even overseas. We recommend that all buyers who are unable to view a vehicle in person have a pre-purchase inspection done prior to purchase. Inspections can be performed by an independent party selected by the buyer. Due to the age and uniqueness of these special vehicles, it is difficult to cover all aspects and characteristics of each vehicle's condition within the limited space available. Thus, pre-purchase inspections are helpful to all parties involved. The information provided for this vehicle is presented to the best of our knowledge, and is deemed reliable. But MAXmotive does not warrant or guarantee this information as a basis for purchase. It is the responsibility of the buyer to make a thorough inspection to determine the suitability of the vehicle prior to purchase.
