Good day, This is what I bought based on the advertizing on E bay, Simply beautiful 1964 Ford Galaxie XL 500 Convertible runs drives as new sweet, working factory am/fm radio, RADIO DOES NOT WORK. New wheels, NOT NEW. New power top, NOT NEW. New bucket seats & console, NOT NEW what I think to be one of the most amazingly well maintained ones you will ever find being sold. NOT TRUE UNSAFE TO DRIVE. This car is RESTORED, and beautiful as you can see in pic 's below. Interior is very clean and as new, Tires and wheels are in great shape . Car runs and drives great. This car is truly, in my mind, one of the best for sale anywhere at this price and drives like it looks .NOT TRUE THIS CAR IS NOT RESTORED! THIS IS ONE MAGNIFICENT AUTOMOBILE THAT IS TRULY READY TO ENJOY.
THE BEST YOU WILL EVER FIND FOR THE MONEY.As full-time enthusiasts, we travel all over the country to find true, low mileage, classic, original cars, convertibles & trucks... to keep, refresh, restore and sell. the mileage statement they gave me says the mileage is 41746 when it is really 141,746, well pass it mechanical capability.

On July ,20,2013 I bought a car from Lash Auto Sales,Inc. through E Bay. This is the link to the car.http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Simply-beautiful-1964-Ford-Galaxie-XL-500-Convertible-runs-drives-as-new-sweet-/251304203079?_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&forcev4exp=true I received the car via car transport on July,27 2013 @ 7;00PM. The car did not at all look like the car on E bay! They had a problem starting the car to get it off the truck.
A car seller with a difference and he deals with specialty auto sales, classic cars, convertibles, antique trucks, vintage cars, luxury cars, etc. The cars he keeps are in top condition and the prices too are very affordable. Steve is an awesome person and gives his customers value for their money.
