1963 Ford Galaxie 500 XL

82,431

If you’re looking for a solid classic that’s stylish, powerful and has a lot of history, who says you have to buy a cramped, high maintenance muscle car? This awesome Galaxie will look just as cool rolling down the road, turn just as many heads at the local drive-in and, thanks to its thorough rebuild, provide many miles of carefree cruising! This drop-top’s substantial aesthetics began with all-original sheetmetal that was stripped bare, mounted to a large rotisserie and thoroughly worked by Michael’s Auto Restoration of Winter Haven, Florida. Three years later, when that sheetmetal displayed excellent alignment, correct Chestnut Metallic lacquer was buffed to a buttery, show worthy shine. And when the buffers stopped, that clean single-stage was fitted with tinted glass, topped with a power-operated roof and decked in original trim that had been stripped, polished and anodized by Extreme Metal Works of Debary, Florida. Befitting the Galaxie 500 XL’s origins as Ford’s first full-size muscle machine, this flashy convertible draws its motivation from a rare, 405 horsepower version of Ford’s big-bore FE V8. That muscular mill’s power is transmitted rearward through a correct Borg Warner T-10 that, with the flick of a wrist, transforms a would be boulevard cruiser into a drag strip battle ship. Behind that gearbox, a large-diameter driveshaft spins a buff Ford 9-inch, which, thanks to correct 3.50 gears, is ready to supply its new owner with years of hard launches. At the front of the car, old school manual steering mixes surprisingly tight turns with modern, responsive feedback. And at the corners of the car, power-assisted drums ride behind fresh stainless center caps and meaty 225/75R15 Uniroyal Tiger Paw whitewalls. If you’re looking for a stylish, comfortable, and reliable piece that commands a lot of respect on the highway, and feels right at home at the show, this hot drop-top is your ticket!
