68 Galaxie Xl Father/son project

Hi guys/girls I'm new to the forum and fords. I figured I would post a few pics of the car and see you guys think. The car is a 68 galaxie XL 390 4v and it will be the first project car for my father and me. I'm a complete newbie when it comes to fords so any tips or tricks pertaining to the galaxy would be greatly appreciated.

I just picked the car up last week for 1000 bucks ( hope it was a decent deal). It seems to be a fairly complete car.

That fastback is sweet! The interior looks very good too. I'd say you got a great deal. These cars are cool and rare. Welcome to the club, I got a 70 myself. Here is my car -->

Hello Galaxie390,

Welcome, it's nice to see more and more '68's appearing. I know many prefer the older models. But I have one very similar to yours I'm redoing as well currently.

Please feel free to ask as many questions as you like. Seems like a great bunch of people on here are happy to help.

Cheers,

DesertXL
