1963 Ford Galaxie 500 XL Description

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!
