1965 Galaxie XL 2-Door Fastback...

Here are some Pictures of my Brothers 1965 Galaxie XL 2-Door Fastback.It came from the United States, but seems it will be here to stay in Australia. It is still Left Hand Drive and he is still debating wether to leave it and Register it this way...Or wether to convert it to Right Hand Drive?? It is currently unrestored and the Body and Chassis are in great shape.There does'nt seem to be rust to speak of and seems to be very straight. Sorry,It's a bit dirty in these Pic's...I hope you like it !!!

Re: 1965 Galaxie XL 2-Door Fastback...

Thanx...and you're right.The left side has 1966 7-Litre Covers and the right side has 1968 XL GT Covers.We were trying to decide which ones we liked better on it,so put two of each on either side for a comparisson!!!

Good looking car. My original 63 1/2 Galaxie was all black. What size motor and options is it equipt with? I see you need a couple of side emblems on the front fenders. Looks like it needs some cosmetic work and it would really shine.

He actually got it from eBaymotors in the United States for around $3,200 USD or something.There was also Internal Freight which cost around $900 USD or something as it had to be Towed from Texas somewhere to a Port in Los Angeles.Then he said that all of the other Costs including Import,Customs and GST was around $3,100 AUS or something? It all added up,but it's a pretty clean car with no rust in the Rails and barely any rust elsewhere.Plus its an original XL Model which probably compares to a Fairmont Ghia in Todays Australian Marketing Standards?...bar it's size !! My Brother say's that for Privacy reasons he does'nt wish for me to disclose the Importer,which I can respect...But I'll tell you that the Importer was Melbourne Based and Unloaded the Container at his Shop and not at the Dock's,which gave good piece of mind !!
