This is the 1/18 black chrome 1964 Men in Black version of the Ford Galaxie, presented here by Greenlight models.
The 1964 Ford Galaxie 500 was the car issued by the MiB and driven by the young Agent K in 1969. The car had a hidden cargo compartment containing 2 additional monocycle transports underneath the vehicle. The Ford Galaxie was among an early generation of specialized high-tech automobiles utilized by the MiB which includes the ’87 Crown Victoria and J’s ’03 Mercedes.
The Ford Galaxie is a full-size car that was built in the United States by Ford for model years 1959 through 1974. The name was used for the top models in Ford’s full-size range from 1958 until 1961.
Like many cars of its time, the Galaxie was named to tap into the excitement surrounding the Space Race, just like the Rocket, Meteor, Satellite and Telstar. It is a full-sized car as was the top-of-the-line full-size Ford of its time, which was between 1959 and 1974. While some Galaxie models were plain old sedans, others were performance oriented cars which were forerunners to the muscle car explosion of the mid-sixties. For example, the 1965 Galaxie could come fitted with a huge 428 7.0 L V8 and was the third best-selling convertible in America, behind the Mustang which was then gaining immense popularity as the first pony car.
All full-size Fords wore the Galaxie badge, with “500” and “500/XL” denoting the higher series. The Galaxie 500/LTD was introduced for 1965 followed by the Galaxie 500 7-Litre for 1966. The Galaxie 500 part was dropped from the LTD in 1966, and from the XL in 1967;[2] however the basic series structuring levels were maintained. The “regular” Galaxie 500 continued below the LTD as Ford’s mid-level full-size model from 1965 until its demise at the end of the 1974 model year. The Galaxie was the high volume counterpart to the Chevrolet Impala.
The 1960 Galaxie introduced all-new design with less ornamentation. A new body style was the Starliner, featuring a huge, curving rear observation window on a pillarless, hardtop bodyshell. The formal roofed 2-door hardtop was not available this year, but the roofline was used for the Galaxie 2-door pillared sedan, complete with chromed window frames. It had been the most popular body style in the line for 1959, and sales dropped off sharply. Contrary to Ford’s tradition of pie-plate round taillghts, the 1960 featured “half-moon” lenses turned downward. The “A” pillar now swept forward instead of backward, making entering and exiting the car more convenient.
The Galaxie was a key stepping stone between the 50s and the 60s and the father of the Mustang.
