Vehicle Description

1963 Ford Galaxie 500 Fastback

Muscle car is an American term for high-performance cars, usually but not limited to rear-wheel drive and fitted with a large and powerful V8 engine. The term originated for 1960's and early 1970's special editions of mass-production cars which were designed for drag racing.

For consignment, a once mild mannered, (as if a 390ci V8 4-speed manual Galaxie could be called mild mannered), 1963 Galaxie 500 Fastback now sporting a freshly rebuilt 427ci V8, dual 4-barrel carburetors and a whole lot of Space Race good looks. This was known in the day as a total performance vehicle, is nicely presented with great paint, optional fender skirts included, and a like new red interior, a highway cruiser or street bruiser. It will have you envisioning yourself running down the back roads of Georgia with a trunk full of shine and the lawman on your tail.

With mirror-like chromed front and rear bumpers, both with small black rubber tipped dagmars, dual headlights and an undulating stainless eggcrate grille as well as turbine style round tail lights, this is truly a jet age car. Straight steel panels are bathed in Corinthian White and show only a few minor imperfections. Meanwhile, the slab steel sides are highlighted by an upper trim spear that works its way to the rear, heads briefly downward, then returns to just in front of the front quarter. In front of the downward turn on the rear quarter, is a series of vertical rectangles which add to the jet age mystique. Chrome and gold crossed flags and eagle 427ci call outs are seen at the front of each front fender along with Galaxie 500 in grandmother's script and a gold crown grace the lower front fenders. Black 14-inch steel wheels with faux knock-off wire wheel covers are wrapped in thin white wall radialsgiving this car a somewhat unassuming look...but beware! The huge Corinthian White steel roof gracefully swoops down to meet the 3 bedroom NYC apartment sized trunk and with its pseudo-fastback styling, gives the aura of motion even when standing still.

With a swing of the doors we greet several red vinyl covered surfaces, all appearing new and all in good condition. The front split bench is red tuck and roll inserts and smooth red bolsters and some white piping racing around the border of the two. The rear bench copies this style. A very clean and shiny original dash and steering wheel are noted as well as an aftermarket tachometer with built in shift light strapped to the column. The instrument cluster has a spaceship styling to it, and we see an Alpine AM/FM/Cassette radio in the center sandwiched between the heater slides and factory clock. Red carpet floods the floors and sitting proudly on the hump within reach of the driver is a floor shifter which was totally unexpected. A nice tight headliner, in contrasting white, is above all the passenger compartment. Bringing out attention briefly to the trunk it has its original vinyl liner and a spare and jack neatly tucked away in the front.

This "top loader" 4-speed manual equipped car comes with a big block FE 427ci V8 cross bolted main mill. This monster V8 is fed by a duo of Holley 4-barrel carbs lurking under a black crinkle finish air cleaner assembly. An aluminum intake is on to deliver the fossils and air to the mighty mill and chrome valve covers addjust the right retro feel. A 4-speed manual top loader transmission is attached to the back of the mill. Power to the rear wheels goes through a Ford 9-inch 3.50 rear with a consignor added TracLoc unit. A thoroughly restored engine bay with miles deep black paint along with some chrome dress up the filler caps and factory cast iron headers will make you look twice.

Miles of black steel make up this expansive undercarriage, all with little to no signs of rust,and that includes the surface variety. Independent coil springs upfront, and leaf springs on the rear provide the suspension. Power drum brakes are on both the front and on the rear. Meanwhile, a good-looking dual exhaust makes its way from the cast iron headers at the engine to turn-down style tailpipes under the rear bumper. Everything is looking tip top to help keep you out in front of the backwoods smokey.

A quick starter, and smooth idler, this car left us with no disappointment. It can cruise, and it can accelerate on demand. Everything was functioning on our drive, however we weren't able to rouse the Morgantown PD into a back roads chase.

A nicely done car, nearly perfect and much nicer than a driver, but definitely not a garage queen,this full sized muscle was meant to be driven. Crisp clean Corinthian White exterior paint, and a red vinyl interior, with a powerful mill and top loader transmission, we are ready to go to hyperdrive. Keep your eyes on the rearview...the lawman caught word of our cargo in the trunk.
