Gary Elkins's
1965 Galaxie 500 XL
Ladera Ranch, California

My Galaxie has a 390 police interceptor, 4-speed transmission and the color is Ivy Green. It has been my vehicle since 1981. My father was the original owner and purchased it from Hensley Anderson Ford in Bellflower California, when I was six months old. He worked on the Ford assembly line in Pico Rivera California and actually watched this car as it went down the line. The engine was rebuilt in 1984. It has been in outdoor storage since 1986. With only 29,000 miles on the rebuilt motor, I am slowly starting the restoration process again. Photo 1:1984. Photo 2: 1965. Photo 3: 2016.
