Why This Car Is Special
If you are a big block Ford performance fan you will know and get
excited about this 1963 Ford 406 Dual Quad Galaxie 500 XL Sport
Hardtop we have here at Skyway Classics, with factory documentation
that shows it was ordered as a Raven Black paint Code A, 390 cubic
inch big block 4 bbl Special engine, WSW 750 tires, power steering,
AM radio, tinted windshield , electric wipers, remote control
mirror, for a whopping total of $3760.40 back then.
This type of Ford in the early 60's saw the rise of drag-strips and
circle track racing and American auto manufacturers were finding
out that the more cubic inches and pure horsepower they could put
is muscle cars, the more they would win on the racetrack and the
street, hence the more of these cars they could sell. And that is
what we have here.
Our 1963 Ford Galaxie 500 has a big block dressed as a 406 cubic
inch engine under the hood topped by 4-barrel performance
carburetor, finned aluminum air cleaner, chrome valve covers,
factory cast iron exhaust headers, power steering, along with air
conditioning, and sits in a very period correct clean, painted, and
detailed engine compartment.
It is shifted by a 4-speed manual gearbox handles the big block's
horsepower and out the HD rear end. The undercarriage shows the
details like the dual exhaust, and H.D. suspension as it rides on
5-spoke factory mag wheels and white letter Wild Country
The interior looks so good with the black twin bucket seats and
matching rear full bench seat, floor console with 4-speed shifter,
black carpets and floor mats, chrome-accented door panel, deep-dish
black steering wheel, as well as the dash with all the factory
gauges, AM radio, tachometer, and even a clock.
Our Ford is painted in Ford Factory Code A Raven Black and looks as
sinister as it did back in 1963, but the glossy black paint is
surely worlds better than it was in 1963.
The body panels look straight and the doors close solid, the chrome
and stainless trim is shiny, and the factory 406 emblems on the
front fenders give warning about you thinking twice about pulling
up alongside it at a stop light.
