This 1963 Ford Galaxie 500 is for all of those who like to stand
out in a tasteful and vintage way. It comes with its correct and
cool color combo, proper V8 power, and an ultra-low odometer. And
it all proves that this is something special up for grabs.
This is the kind of style that owns the boulevard. Ford made them
extra-long and wide in '63, that's why you have touches like the
hint of overhang on the hood and jet-inspired taillights that reach
past the fender. Plus, you have brightwork in all the best places.
Extra-wide chrome bumpers, an artful full-width grille, dual
ornaments on the front fenders, and full-length side trim in a
C-channel pattern. But our favorite part on this car is the paint.
It's always awesome to find a factory Raven Black car, and this one
retains a good gloss from a quality respray. It's all part of a
package that shows this has lived a careful life. In fact, the
story on this one is that it spent over four decades with its first
owner, and now it still has only averaged under 700 miles annually
over its lifetime. That's why this one look correct and authentic,
right down to the wire wheel covers.
As a premium pillarless hardtop coupe you get to roll down all the
windows so people get a good look at the time capsule inside. The
Light Gold and Pearl Gold two-tone really have that ideal 1960s
elegance, and the combo looks terrific against the piano black
exterior. The two rows of bench seats retain their intricate
pattern and trims, and it really shows the clean look of a
low-mileage machine. The same goes for the carpeting, headliner,
door panels, and dash. So it's hard not to get the vintage tingle
every time you grab the factory steering wheel. And because you're
going to want to share this time capsule, the heater is working
well for those mornings when you want to be first at the car
Under the hood is proper Ford V8 power. The 352 cubic-inch V8 is
the kind of powerhouse that saw duty in everything from the
F-Series pickup to the Thunderbird. That means it has the ability
to be both stout and smooth. The engine is believed to be original
to this coupe, and it has an authentic look featuring the big blue
air cleaner and valve covers radiating from within the dark engine
bay. The V8 fires up eagerly, the automatic transmission shifts
smoothly, and the brakes grab with confidence. So this has the
feeling of a well-respected car that's ready to cruise today.
This sleek black coupe impresses on its first impression alone. So
as people see the interior and here its low-mileage story, you know
it's the one that's going to get talked about for years to come.
