When you see the bright paint and full custom interior, you'll
think this 1963 Ford Galaxie is one of the coolest customs you've
ever seen. Of course, once you see the blower on the 501 ci V8, you
realize that this is really a wild and ready full build that's just
legal enough for you to hang a license plate off the rear.
A 1963 Galaxie is the right place to start when building a custom prostreet machine. After all, those afterburner-inspired taillights go perfect with jet fighter amount of horsepower protruding from the front. Plus, with the wraparound chrome bumpers, full-length C-channel side trim, a sleek hardtop profile, it makes for a great classic presentation. But just to make sure this coupe gets the standout attention it deserves, the total package was stripped to bare metal and then wrapped in Tangelo Pearl with six coats of clearcoat. The result is a modern color that radiates so much gloss and shine, they'll think your coupe is nuclear powered. And the reason it all still resents so nicely today is because there is one mile on the whole build - yes, one single mile!
Open the door to one if the nicest custom interiors around. The exterior orange has returned as an accent color for all that expensive tan leather. The result is the kind of premium and uniform appearance that wins awards (and we can show you this one already has!) And of course, with only one mile on the clock, it means there hasn't been time to even put a crease in those custom bucket seats. But while this looks and feels comfortable, they didn't forget that this is a true performance machine. The best components were just integrated very carefully. For example, that matching leather-wrapped steering wheel is a grippy sports unit. And the custom center console houses the ratchet-style shifter as well as the boost gauge and extra large tach.
Ok, we won't leave you in suspense any longer about the monster motor. Within that super clean engine bay is a 460 cubic-inch V8 bored out to 501 total. And while that monster displacement would be enough for some people, this one also has a Dyers 8-71 blower on top... and the upgrades don't end there. You have dual Holley 750 CMF four-barrel carburetors, Dyers hi-rise intake, Edelbrock Performer heads, ARP bolts, JE Pistons, moly rings, Eagle crank & connecting rods, Comp Cams hydraulic camshaft, double roller chain, and an 8.9:1 compression ratio. So even if people were not intimidated by the Mr. Gasket butterfly scoop protruding from the hood, they'll instantly know to be afraid when they hear the thunderous roar of the side exit dual exhaust. This big muscle runs through a rebuilt and fortified C6 three-speed automatic that keeps an ideal powerband thanks to a 2500 RPM stall. All this muscle is then sent to a stout limited slip rear end. The final step to make sure all this power meets the pavement are the wide Mickey Thompson rear tires on Weld Racing wheels.
There's a ton more to go over on this full custom prostreet machine. So call us for all the details. This one has so much power and charisma that it draws a crowd where ever it goes. So you know a total package like this is going to be gone soon. Call today!!!
