A 1963 Ford Galaxie 500 was a darling of NASCAR in its day, and this one seems to want to continue that speedy attitude. With a big V8, nitrous capability, four-on-the-floor, and all the best performance pieces, this hardtop is a growling reminder that this was the dawn of the muscle car era.
This was the year Ford upgraded the Galaxie for speedy style. The fastback roofline was designed to help it be competitive in racing. That kind of added sleekness goes with the streamlined sides (featuring fender skirts) and afterburner style taillights. Of course, it also helps when the car was born in Rangoon Red. It was updated later in life, and so it still retains a proper shine. The big chrome bumpers and full-length C-channel trim give this coupe a substantial look. These are joined by performance-mined upgrades like the 15-inch racing wheels, bright dual exhaust tips, and the working hood scoop. It all lets people know this isn't your average full-size classic coupe.
The full red package really makes for an eye-catching package inside and out, and the trim tag tells us this coupe was born this way! The door panels, dash, and upholstery even seem to be highly original. So classic car lovers will be point out details, like the correct trim on the textured seatbacks. And while this wears some great history, and it has size to carry plenty of people, the true purpose of this build is speed. So while most of the dash has a stock look - from the long speedometer to the AM radio on display - the real treats surround it. This means you've got the right auxiliary readouts, a CB radio, a tach prominently mounted on top of the dash, and a Hurst shifter that's just calling out for your right hand.
Open the hood for a true treat. The there are plenty of polished components that make this nice to show off. But beneath the style is the substance of a 390 cubic-inch V8 with plenty of go-fast goodies. The ram air hood feeds fresh air to the Holley double pumper four-barrel carburetor on its way to the Edelbrock low-rise intake. And Headman long tube headers let this mighty V8 exhale with added power. While this is already a terrific setup for most people, we also bet you spotted the nitrous bottle in the trunk that can put you a car-length ahead of others. Best of all, the four-speed manual transmission puts you in the center of all the action. There are even cutouts on the dual exhaust for when you want to truly bring the thunder with your fury. Disc brakes in front and traction bars in the rear are all part of a package designed to make this a true street king.
This coupe has both power and personality, and that's the kind of classic we all love. Call today!!!
