Description for Ford Galaxie 1970

.
***DRIVE ANYWHERE --- RUNS, RIVES EXCELLENT --- VERY ORIGINAL***
***ORIGINAL INTERIOR --- ONE REPAINT --- EVERYTHING WORKS***

This is a 1970 Ford Galaxie XL convertible the owner asked me to list. We were in the same car club for many years and he  does not own a computer. He purchased the car in 2000 from an ad in a local AACA newsletter. I recall because I showed him  the ad. He bought the car and did some work to it - new gas tank and sending unit, ew shocks, uned up the engine and replaced  the distributor. The black convertible top was replaced 4 or 5 years ago - the last time it was down was for a Christmas parade  two years ago. The owner seldom drives the car so he has decided to sell it. Everything works in this car - air conditioning,  heat, ower steering, ower brakes, ower top, ll lights including the hide-a-way headlights, tc. The owner says he would not  be afraid to drive the car anywhere. I know he has taken it on many club runs and the car has never had a problem. The original  AM radio has been replaced with a Ford AM/FM radio. The owner will include the original radio and four service manuals for  the car (engine, hassis, lectrical and body). The car was repainted one time and that was by the previous owner. Unfortunately  the painter did not repaint under the hood, eck lid and door jams. Engine is the original 351W and it does not use oil and it runs  fine. The interior is all original. This is a nice survivor car that is very original. Email any questions and if you'd like to take a  look at the car email for the owner's phone number. Car is located in Colonial Heights, irginia 23834 just a couple of minutes  off I-95.
