I owned a 1971 Mustang
with a 302 and I have 3 Ford Galaxies, 60 62 & 64 they are very easy to work on just make sure you do the regular oil change and tune ups. The main thing with older cars is understanding points and condenser and knowing how to set them, most cars with points need tuning every 5,000 to 10,000 miles and depending on how often you drive them. I suggest you start and drive the car as much as possible to keep it tuned and in good shape.
One thing I have done with all my Galaxies is to switch to electronic ignition and this can be done very easily and cheaply by using the Petronix Ignitor which replaces the stock points and condenser. It uses the stock distributor and wires so it takes a keen eye to know it is there unless you take off the cap, it even uses the stock rotor. I played with points for 20 years before I replaced it. Just about everyone in my Galaxie club uses them now. They were actually for VW and Mustangs. They are available at most parts store for around $50.00 and well worth it. I have not played or adjusted points in over 10 years and I love it plus the car runs great, better horsepower and more reliable and all my cars are 390 FE motors. I added a link.
