This fully restored 1963 Ford Galaxie is a great example of one of
Ford's best looking full-size models. This Ford presents nicely as
a Galaxie 500XL model however, according to the VIN and the
Warranty Number plate, this Ford was factory delivered as a Galaxie
500 without the 'Code 68 XL option'. The XL option included
upgrades to the interior/exterior trim. This Galaxie appears to
have these elements of the XL package, but the build Code 66 is not
correct for an XL. The fiery red hardtop is striking from any
angle. The exterior was professionally refinished with Rangoon Red
in 2015. Chrome is excellent (there is a lot of it) and factory
steel wheels w/full wheel covers mount whitewall radial tires. A
pair of rear fender skirts adds to the period-correct look. The
interior is an invitation to go back in time - fully restored to XL
standards. Upholstery, dash, headliner, door cards - all very nice.
Our owner has also installed an AM/FM/cassette sound system. Muscle
is provided by a 'Thunderbird' 390ci FE Special V-8 that was
rebuilt in 2011. The factory intake manifold mounts a Holley
4-barrel carb and everything under the hood looks original. This
engine is rated at 300hp/427lb-ft and is backed by a Borg-Warner
4-speed manual gearbox. The chassis is rock-solid with power
steering and 4-wheel drum brakes. This car is ready to be enjoyed
by someone who appreciates early 60's Blue Ovals. Why not you? ALL
VEHICLES SOLD "AS IS".
