1969 Ford Galaxie XL 429 Factory 4-Speed
FOMOCO collectors & fanatics, here is one that you certainly do not see every day!
‘Red Hills Rods & Classics’ is thrilled to offer you this absolutely gorgeous, fully restored & heavily documented 1969 Ford Galaxie XL 2-Door Sportsroof, an ultra-rare example that left the Ford factory fully loaded w/ all of the most desirable options! This beautiful classic was purchased brand new @ Trask Motors in Custer, South Dakota, and let me say that the original owner checked ALL of the right boxes when he ordered his brand new Galaxie XL. The Deluxe Marti Report shows that this 1969 Ford Galaxie XL Sportsroof is a (1) of (1) ordered with these options & color combinations.
Factory options include: (Code T) Candy Apple Red Paint, (Code 8A) Black Clarion Knit Bucket Seats w/ Console, Black Vinyl Roof, (Code N) 429/360hp 4V Engine, (Code 5) 4-Speed Wide Ratio Manual Transmission, (Code R) 3.25 Traction-Lok Axle Ratio, Power Steering, Power Front Disc Brakes, Heavy-Duty Handling Package, Tinted Glass Complete, Rear Window Defogger, AM Radio, Rear Seat Speaker and 8.55x15 White Sidewall Tires. Extensive original documentation includes: (2) Original Build Sheets, Original Window Sticker, (2) Original Owners Cards, Original Owners Manual, Original Warranty Booklet, Original Helpful Hints Brochure, Copy of Original Title, Original Registration Cards, Original Insurance Cards, Deluxe Marti Report and all of the service records from day one! I have never seen a classic car w/ this much original documentation! Every single time the original owner purchased gasoline he kept the receipt! The same goes for all oil changes or any other maintenance performed.
The second owner completed a full frame-off restoration in 2010, and the final result is simply outstanding in every way! The original sheet metal is super straight all of the way around, and the correct Candy Apple Red paint is simply gorgeous! The chrome & stainless trim is in show quality condition throughout, and the black vinyl top is shiny & lustrous! You can walk around this car a hundred times and never find a bad angle. She sits on the original 15” steel wheels w/ original wheel covers wrapped w/ Firestone F70-15 Wide-Oval tires, which look outstanding.
When you slide into the original black bucket seat interior, you will swear that it is 1969 all over again! I can’t emphasize enough how cool it is sitting in a Full-Size Ford w/ a 4-speed manual shifter coming out of the console! The interior is 95% original and in absolutely amazing condition from front to back. Everything appears factory stock throughout, w/ all gauges, lights blinkers, radio, etc. in perfect working order. The wrap-around interior styling of the ’69 Ford Galaxie XL is highly under-rated, period. I truly love the way it feels driving this Full-Size Ford muscle car, especially w/ the factory 4-speed shifter firmly in my right hand. The trunk area is nicely detailed throughout w/ the original jack assembly & Firestone Wide-Oval spare tire in place.
Pop the hood & nestled inside the beautifully detailed engine bay you will find the factory correct 429ci 4V motor linked to the factory correct 4-Speed Top Loader transmission, feeding power to the factory correct 3.25 Traction-Lok rear axle. She fires up w/ the flick of the wrist and settles into a steady idle, just like she should. This big-block beauty runs, drives & performs perfectly in every way, and has loads of power & torque! Even w/ the skinny Firestone tires, it is really shocking just how nice this car feels on the road! The factory Power Steering & Power Disc Brakes makes driving around town effortless, and when you get on the freeway she goes, and goes strong! Another thing that I love about this car is how it sounds. This baby produces a low big-block rumble that says: “I may be big but I will still beat you to the next stoplight”!
How many 4-Speed 429ci powered '69 Galaxie XL's have you seen lately? Not to mention an example that is 100% correct, absolutely beautiful in every way, & heavily documented w/ all of the vital paperwork that separates the thoroughbred classic cars from all the rest. There was over a million (1,014,731) Full-Size Fords built in 1969, and only 404 of those left the factory w/ the 429ci/4-Speed combo! That breaks down to a percentage of .0003, which is such an ultra-small fraction that it puts this car into the mega-rare category! Again, this 1969 Ford Galaxie XL is ONE OF ONE built w/ these colors & options, and when you factor in the condition, originality & incredible original documentation, well let’s just say that this is a blue-chip Ford classic if there ever was one! If you have been searching for a classic car that will separate you from all of the others, this is your car!
