4610 Pet Lane
This 1963 Ford Galaxie 500 convertible is for all of those who like to standout in a tasteful and vintage way. It's sporty on the outside, plenty of great features on the inside, and packs a nice V8 wallop. And it does it all for an affordable price.
This is the kind of style that owns the boulevard. Ford made them extra long and wide in '63, that's why you have touches like the hint of overhang on the hood and jet-inspired taillights that reach past the fender. Plus, you have brightwork in all the best places. Extra wide chrome bumpers, an artful full-width grille, dual ornaments on the front fenders, and full-length side trim in a C-channel pattern. And the addition of polished Torq Thrust wheels is the perfect way to remind us all that this is the era of both chrome and V8 power. But our favorite part on this car is the paint. Not only does it show a nice sunshine-ready finish from a more recent respray, but also the turquoise color is officially called Ming Green. So it's the perfect '60s-style hue with the kind of name that tells you why this is a droptop that's meant to be a classic collectable.
The white convertible top is a newer investment, so it has a great bright white look against the turquoise. But with the touch of a button, it powers down to reveal a whole new dynamic. The black interior gives this a sporty look, especially with the bucket seats with center console. As you dig deeper into the features, you'll see the plenty of room for family and friends that this full-size droptop offers. Plus, the cloth inserts in the seats are not only stylish, but also feel nicer than vinyl if you've left the roof off for a while on a sunny day. You also have upgrades to make this a terrific cruiser, like the modern AM/FM/CD stereo w/USB input to plug in your phone, and there's also provisions for R134a air conditioning.
Under the hood is proper Ford V8 power. The 352 cubic-inch V8 is the kind of powerhouse that saw duty in everything from the F-Series pickup to the Thunderbird. That means it has the ability to be both stout and smooth. This example looks nice with a polished air topper, Edelbrock valve covers, and tidy hoses. It fires up readily, like a well-respected classic should. Plus, with power steering, power brakes, and air shocks in the rear, this is the convertible that's ready to cruise. There was even a recent rebuild on the a three-speed automatic transmission!
Complete with build receipts, this is the convertible that offers the classic looks and the right upgrades to deliver an unbeatable package. So don't miss your chance, call today!
