I don't think anyone has done a two-door sedan body of the '64 Galaxy. I doubt that it's been done in resin either.

The AMT will build into a post car, with a little work, and as for a plain Galaxie 500, just sand off the the trim. For extra detail use the 60 Ford Starline frame and floor pan and interor, you nees to use the 64 dash, eveything will fit with very little work. You'll need to cut open the hood, so you could see the engine.

Built a few myself, will take some pixs and post later.

Google images is a wonderful tool. Notice the difference in the rear sail panels between the  XL Hardtop (like the AMT kit)  2dr sedan. '63 and '64 XL models had a different roof than their lower priced counterparts.

Yes, that is why I was hoping for a resin trans kit. The roofline is different, the interior is different, and the posts. There is a resin 1962 post available. I was looking for the easy way out!

I thought I read somewhere about using Revell's '64 Fairlaine roof with the AMT kit as a starting point for a baseline Galaxie. Not that it was a straight swap and you're done, but it got you in the general area

All the afore mentioned roofs ar not apropriot for a twodoor post sedan! There's a 1/43 model of a post sedan too look for where You can see the different dimensions! You'll have to lenghten the roof a litlle and ad Your own new C pillars ( more streight up and a litlle tapered bottom to top) and for the best results even have to add a more upricht frontwindowframe with actually is a litlle higher as well! But it can be done, but leave the roofs on the earlier Galaxies and Fairlanes alone because they won't do You any good....... Sorrie

I know star model.resin has a 4 door Sedan, may be you can just add the post and delete the rear doors. It uses the AMT galaxie to complete. Hope this helps

Want something done right, you got to do it yourself.

As an owner of a 1963½ Galaxie 500XL I have to cut in.
The roof style has nothing to do with if it's the top of the line XL or a lower priced version, both the Galaxie 500 and 500XL has this roof.
The 2 door "Sports Hard Top" "Fastback" HT roof came well into the 1963 model year (same time as the R and Q code 427 engine) and replaced the previous 2 door "box top" Hard Top roof, and the car with the Fastback roof are therefore called 1963½, the earlier "Box Top" HT roof (wich I believe is the same for 1962) was more square and looks more like the Fairlane HT roof.
The same Fastback Hard Top roof continued with the 1964 model and are the same for all 2 door Hard Tops.
The difference between a 500 and 500XL is that the XL has bucket seats, center console with floor shifter, different more exclusive interior and some different trim and badges...otherwise it's the same car.

The Ford drag racers got the Fastback roof cars so the factory 1963 and 1964 Lightweight 427 Galaxies for example were Galaxie 500 Fastbacks, but if you want to do a 1962 or 63 406 car you need to use the box top or sedan.
