Yesterday I just saw a (if I didn't see it with my own eyes I wouldn't believe it)64 Custom 300 2 door sedan with a "D" code 289 210 HP 4v engine. It's in the serial number. Just goes to show you that all you READ you can't always beleive.
It is FACTORY! 3 speed with overdrive and in pretty fair shape. I saw it in Wisconsin outside a classic car museum. WOW!

406 tri power "64" is VERY rare Mike.
Most (99%) HIPO 64's were sold with 427's. Hell, even a 63 406 is pretty rare.

Actually Comets were considered intermediates after 1963. They did not regain compact status until 1971.

i have a 64 4 door galaxie 500xl sitting in my garage that is an original D code car. 78k original on it....3spd auto, originally dark green with a black and white interior. Some schmuck painted it burnt orange during its life...but hey the car was essentially free. All i had to do was put new wheel cylinders on the back and a new master cylinder and i drove it home.

erm the '64 and '65 Comets were on the Falcon platform, the Meteor was on the Fairlane chassis. (they went to the Fairlane chassis in '66 or '67.)

Having a '64 comet and having owned a '64 Falcon, the Interiors are Identical (save for the dash.)

They all shared a ton of parts. Mustang, Falcon, Fairlane, Comet, Meteor. That is how FoMoCo could sell them so cheap and sell so many of them. Nevertheless, the Fairlane/Comet was considered/classified as an intermediate back then. Falcons, Lancers, Valients and Corvairs were the compacts. The classifications were based on wheelbase.

I'd really love to see the pics of that 64 289 car, but I know only too well what it's like when you get busy. Just not enough hours in a day.

Hey Alex,
One of my past co-workers had a '68 Galaxie she bought from this old fellow everything orginal on it down to the Am radio.
Best I can remember it had a small block but I'm thinking it had a 302.

She had the motor rebuilt, bumpers rechromed and fresh paint..GOD that puppy looked sweeeeet..I nicknamed it the Red Barron

302 2v was the base V-8 in full size cars begining with 1968 Sam. No 4v small block was available.

Alex,

Im glad you liked the pics of the car. Personally i hate the color, but when its free ya cant complain. The title lists the car as and XL and it has all the XL emblems. Its been through 9 owners before me so maybe at sometime the emblems were added and it carried over to the title with some PA DMV incompetence. PA is known for their quality control. At the same time i got the 64 i also got a 1966 LTD 66,000 miles 4 door hardtop. 352 4v auto factory am/fm radio and 4 way flashers. The car had a frame bend on the drivers side in front of the A-arm (about 1/8 in bend. The car was completly rust free but the motor was out. (the previous owner pulled the motor and trans to replace the motor mounts and trans mount. dont ask, he's a putz). Anyway when i got the title it read that the car was a 1965 ford 4 door hardtop. But the VIN which matched the car was 6........... SOOOOOOOO go figure.

Yes XL's were all hardtops or converts. All had buckets and console floor shifts except for three speed manuals. Even the 4 doors.

I am very sad to report that there were no full size FoMoCo's at the recent MCA show in Charolett NC.

I am trying to put a 65 XL 500 w/390 3speed auto together for a guy here in Austin. I was shocked to see power windows and power locks in that car. I must say i am at a loss on some of it. it was taken apart years ago and moved from place to place. We picked up a 4dr parts car just to help out on all of the stuff that has neen lost.I am a mustang guy at hart and am by no means a galaxie expert but no one will touch this project. It pains me to see it like that.
So i drag on....
