This is the era when the coupes were big, fast, and brilliant. This 1963 Ford Galaxie 500 is an ideal mixture of luxury and performance with big block power and cold blowing air conditioning... all wrapped in a vintage fastback body built for cruising.Those who know Fords, know how special this car is. 1963 was the first year Ford had a little fun with aerodynamics, and they introduced the fastback roofline to better compete in NASCAR. This seems to represent that speedy history perfectly with a glossy presentation of the factory-correct Rangoon Red. And the addition of a two-tone presentation gives the special roofline even more distinction. Owning a V8 Galaxie 500 was about showing off Ford's top-of-the line, and that's seen in great brightwork on places like the double strips that run the full length of the car, concave grille, wraparound bumpers, and jet-inspired taillights. In fact, this car has all looks like a great factory-correct appearance, except the wheels. Those modern Ford alloys are a cool upgrade, and they signal that this classic coupe has been updated in the right places.Open the door, and this Galaxie is wall-to-wall red to match the exterior. And there's also some great white accenting, just like the outside, too. So this total package makes a great first impression. This level of care is fantastic to see in the top-of-the-line, full-sized Ford. There's plenty of great bright trim incorporated into the weave of the door panels and seats, which makes this a very cool place to send some time. As a family-sized car of the '60s, you'll have no trouble fitting five family or friends comfortably. Plus, upgrades like the ice-cold modern R134a air conditioning ensures everyone will want to go for a ride no matter the time of year. But even if you're driving all alone, this Ford provides lots of appeal. You start with an upgraded Grant GT sports steering wheel. Beyond that is the wide gauge cluster that spans half the dash. It includes a massively long speedometer flanked by two barrel style gauge clusters. And once you spot the auxiliary readout trio, you'll start to realize there's something quite nice in the engine bay.Pop the hood and you'll see that callouts on the fenders were not lying. This is a Z-code car, and so we're happy to see the correct 390 cubic-inch displacement under the hood. Dressed with bright valve covers and matching air topper, it's the ideal early '60s powerplant. A motor this size has no trouble giving this full-size Ford some real get-up-and-go, and the dual exhaust makes a powerful sound without losing this car's cruising attitude. Plus, this Galaxie's three-speed Crusie-O-Matic transmission, power steering, and power brakes make the total package quite comfortable going down the road. This is further heightened by modern drilled and vented front disc brakes as well as Michelin tires at each corner.Complete with build receipts and maintenance records, this coupe is the complete package of fast with class. And at an affordable price like this, you know you need to hurry if you want to take it home. Call today!!!
