1965 Ford Galaxie 500
Why This Car Is Special
We have a rare 1965 Ford Galaxie Z-Code show stopper here at Skyway Classics that came with 390 cubic inch engine and is restored in the original code paint of Red with the awesome red interior too, as verified by the Trim Tag.
These 1965 Galaxie’s were lower, wider, and longer and ours has plenty of original features and a powerful V8, but with modern power and suspension upgrades.

The modified 390 cubic inch engine in our Galaxie has plenty of fresh horsepower with the addition of performance and dress up parts including the Edelbrock chrome open element air cleaner sitting atop the tune-able EFI injection system, aluminum performance intake, aluminum finned Cobra Lemans valve covers, tubular exhaust headers sending spent gasses back thru the dual exhaust system to the tips at the rear, performance pulleys, an Edelbrock aluminum water pump, performance distributor, electronics, and spark plug wires.
It also benefits with a Wilwood power disc brakes on all four wheels, power steering, aftermarket air conditioning with the engine sitting in an engine compartment that is every bit as clean as it is spacious, surrounded by fresh hoses and properly routed wiring and looks as new as it did when it was built, and backed by the 4-speed transmission and H.D. rear end which has Hotchkiss parts as well as an air ride adjustable behind the license plate.
Inside we find a stunning and restored factory correct red split front bench seat interior with a matching back seat that passengers can easily climb in and out of.
It includes the chrome 4-speed shifter with black shifter ball unit mounted on the floor, the red factory steering wheel, the factory red dash with all the factory gauges sitting in the dash as well as accessory gauges and an accessory chrome tachometer, matching red door panels, air conditioning, clock, pushbutton radio, and red carpeting.
The trunk area in back is just as spacious as you would expect and is in great shape with a trunk mat and full-size spare tire.
The 1965 we have has been redone from top to bottom and the quality shows overall and especially in the bright shiny red paint flowing over the bodywork which was totally redesigned by Ford with upright, chiseled styling, stacked headlamps and squared-off features.
It has super chrome bumpers, most of the side trim and emblems were taken off to give it the sleek look it has that truly makes this car look the part of luxury muscle car.
It rides on chrome aftermarket Riddler 5-spoke mag wheels on BF Goodrich G-Force Comp-2 performance black sidewall tires showing off those Wilwood red brake calipers.
This 1965 Ford Galaxie 500 we have here at Skyway Classics is certainly the finest example of a Z-Code Ford we have ever had. My description and picture do not do this car justice as to how nice it is, looks, sounds, and performs.
We will leave that up to you when you see it.
It is a classic muscle car that is very hard to find anywhere, let alone this restored and with all the originality.
In period advertising, Ford stated, “You’ll have to decide whether it’s a cool hot car or a hot cool car.”
The way we look at it, we think this 1965 Ford Galaxy stunner is both.
