For Sale: 1963 Ford Galaxie in Ft Worth, Texas

Vehicle Description

This 1963 Ford Galaxie 500 has been done exactly how you want it. That means a strong-running 390ci V8, a terrific color combo, classic style, and an AC interior. And as you look at the full package, you can tell this hardtop was restored with the kind of care you would have done if you had the extra time to do it right.


The trim tag tells us this is a factory Raven Black car, and the first place you can tell there was a solid restoration investment is with this finish. It has the kind of slickness that makes this full-size coupe look like a grand piano for the road. Another reason why we love the black is that it's the ideal backdrop to make all the brightwork stand out even more. You see it up front how the mirror-like bumper was built to neatly complement the lines of the full-width grille. In the rear, the afterburner-style taillights are contoured into the intricate rear trim. Along the side, the full-length trim does a cool C-channel that emphasizes how long this road king is. And this one really is complete, right down to the factory-style spinner hubcaps with bias-ply whitewall tires. So it looks like a rolling time capsule.


A red interior always looks great against the black. This is the factory-correct color, but just like the exterior, you can tell there have been good investments to give it a vintage look but with a fresher feel. It's in everything from door panels with bright trim to the working dome lights. And we especially love the look of the seats that are complete, right down to the embedded trim and contrast piping that match the headliner. A thoughtful restoration also means making this car a better cruiser. So you have well-integrated features, like a classic FM supplemental receiver under the dash and a vintage-style air conditioning unit blowing cold with modern R134a refrigerant. This just seems to have the right atmosphere where you can roll down all the windows on this pillarless hardtop, grab the classily thin steering wheel, and hit the gas to comfortably cruise all day long.


The engine bay continues the time capsule kind of style. You see it even in details like the classic FoMoCo washer fluid bag and all the cool decals. The big 390 cubic-inch V8 is the correct displacement for this coupe, and it also has a proper four-barrel carburetor on top. This powerhouse has an attractive golden glow from the air grabber and valve covers that radiate within the clean and dark inner walls. And more than just look clean, the way this one eagerly fires up and runs so smoothly is a sure sign of quality care. It feels solid on the road thanks to newer front coils, power steering, and a three-speed automatic transmission.


This is the sleek and solid hardtop classic cruiser with the right investments to keep it fun in modern times. So don't miss this deal. Call today!!!
