Paint Or Patina? You Decide

Paint Or Patina? You Decide

1969 Ford Galaxie 500

Ok, faithful COTD readers, we need your opinions here. We really can’t decide what we’d do with this supposedly barn-found Galaxie 500. Of course we’d at first consider MORE POWER, but we kinda dig the badly-worn paint. Patina, they call it, like a well-worn pair of Levis.

Thing is, we’ve seen a bunch of patina over the years at car shows, where well-meaning enthusiasts will clearcoat over primer and rust to preserve that hard-won finish. It can be overdone.

So, friends – tell us what you’d do with this beast.

It’s on eBay in Indiana for $6700 or offer.1969 Ford Galaxie 500 interior 1969 Ford Galaxie 500 engine 1969 Ford Galaxie 500 grey rear quarter 1969 Ford Galaxie 500 grey front quarter
