Found some tape under my dash on ignition switch saying keyed positive. Does that just mean the car is negative earthed?

All Galaxies are negative ground since the first one in 1959. Your tape marking is either a confirmation, or some work was done to it and it's a mechanic's reminder. Other cars up through the 1950s were positive ground, and reminders would have been used often back then to avoid obvious nasties. My Great-Grandfather's '29 Model A had stickers and tape marks in several places for that reason.
