ONE OF ONE - AMONG THE RAREST OF MUSCLE CARS Talk about a big presence! This 1968 Ford Galaxie XL GT Convertible— 1 of 1 produced with this specific option combination—features a fire-breathing factory Q-Code 428 CI V-8 engine backed by a row-it-yourself 4-speed manual transmission. A highly optioned car, it is the only example finished in Meadowlark paint and is equipped with its factory wheels and whitewall tires. The Galaxie XL GT convertible was a part of the “Total Performance” global Ford Motor Company advertising campaign during the 1960s. Ford’s goal was to win races on Sunday and sell cars on Monday. Mainstream vehicles like the Galaxie, Fairlane and Falcon were restyled with squared-off aggressive designs to emphasize their new performance chops and tie them back to the Ford cars that were winning races.
