DESCRIPTION

This is a genuine 427-425 horsepower R code Galaxie 500 XL. Documented with build sheet which is very rare to have. Listed in the registry. Frame off restored to factory condition, #s matching throughout. Born in San Jose and lived in Arizona.



EXTERIOR: Laser straight, rust free, damage free body. Everything fits perfectly well. Doors shut like a new car. Beautiful Viking blue. The paint job shows really well, has just a few minor imperfections. All the trim is straight and shiny. The emblems sparkle, spears on top the fenders look new, the grill is straight and shiny. Bumpers have been rechromed. Has mint condition deluxe mirror. Reproduction Firestone tires on 15 inch Kelsey Hayes wheels. Glass is crystal clear. Jambs are tidy, weatherstrips are good.



INTERIOR: Inside the car is immaculate. Boy, this is a good looking interior. The XL comes with bucket seats and console. There is sparkling chrome everywhere. The door panels are mint, the chrome foil is not peeling. Cushions have been replaced so they're nice and firm and it makes the new upholstery fit nice. Carpet, headliner and visors look like new. The whole dash area has been restored. The knobs and radio sparkle. It has a rare heater delete and a clock delete. Correct 4-speed style shifter. Very sharp looking interior.



ENGINE COMPARTMENT: This is what makes it legendary: a factory 427 R code with two giant dual quads on top. Codes and numbers match. Correct #s on the aluminum intake. It is as it left the assembly line. Has factory cast iron headers. Correct oval air cleaner and chrome valve covers. Has the correct fuel canister. This motor was completely remained, we have pictures. All the finishes are smooth and tidy. Latches are cadmium plated. It is detailed up nicely. No frills, pure muscle. Has manual steering and brakes, it doesn't even have a heater.



TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Big trunk compartment is completely restored. Clean metal painted blue. Has a real nice plaid liner mat with the cardboard side panels. The spare matches the wheels. Has painted rim with reproduction tire. The jack has been restored.



UNDERSIDE: Dry Arizona metal. Clean original floors. The rubber weep holes are still there behind the rear tires. Chassis is not pitted. The front end is completely rebuilt and detailed. Bottom of the motor and trans are spotless. Has correct T-10 4-speed. Correct Ford 9 inch with 4.11 gears in back. Rear end is correctly detailed. Assembly line markings were duplicated throughout. Has dual exhaust system with Flowmaster mufflers. Brake system was restored, e-brake assembly is complete.



This is a rare, significant muscle car. Really think about it. GTO is recognized as the first muscle car with a 389 putting out 325 hp. This is a 427 with 2 huge Holley carbs making 425 hp! This one is exceptional quality and very authentic. Priced aggressively for one of this caliber.
