The Galaxie nameplate was used by Ford to denote top models in the full-size range starting in 1958 to appeal to the excitement surrounding the USA vs. USSR Space Race. For 1963, the base engine was the 223cid "Mileage Maker" 6-cylinder inline mated to a 3-speed manual column shift transmission. This all-original numbers matching time capsule must be seen to be truly appreciated. The classic white/red vinyl color combination is complemented by red wheel trim and perfect original hub caps. The owner states 39,664 actual miles driven by the same family since 1963 and it shows! Open the door, settle in to the comfortable bench seat, survey the unmolested gauge cluster and push-button radio and cruise with the family in style! This beautiful Ford Galaxie is located at our Milwaukee showroom.
