Your Muscle Car Story
It was about 4 years ago while checking out some local car ads when I came across and ad about a 1970 Ford Galaxie. The pictures shown were of a car that was barely recognizable because of the terrible photo's. It peaked my interest so I gave the number a call. It so happens that the car was a 1970 Ford XL that was being sold by the original owner. It had been put away for the last 16 years and he was ready to let it go. We talked some more and I found out that it had the original 429 4 barrel engine in it...in fact the car was completely original except for a paint job done sometime in the 1980's. It had the horseshoe shifter, high bucket seats, C-6 transmission, horn blow steering wheel etc. It was actually outfitted as a 1969 Ford XL-Gt would have been.

It was located about 2 hours away but I still made the trip the next day. When I pulled up to the house, there it sat in all it's glory. It looked amazing for a car that had been sitting around for the last 15 years and it was starting to steal my heart. I could see it's amazing potential and really, where do you find a car like this and buy it from the original owner..I had to buy it.

We settled on a great price and because I traveled 2 hours to see it, I couldn't take her home that day as I couldn't obviously drive both cars but the owner happily agreed to drive it to me the next day.

Over the last few year I have had the engine rebuilt to factory specs, changed the gears and really just prettied it. I added Magnum 500 wheels, some cool striping and a functional scoop on the hood.
It is a big and beautiful car that is now my summer daily driver as well as my track warrior on the weekends (14 second car). This is a rare, underappreciated full size Ford that you don't see often (1640 XL's made in 1970) but when I get in it, there is no way anyone could wipe the smile off my face. That's my Ford barn find story. Cheers!
