 Vehicle Description
For fans of full-sized Ford muscle, there arent many holier grails than a real-deal R-code Galaxie. Well, heres your chance, because this 1963 Ford Galaxie post sedan sports an ultra-desirable 427 V8, a 4-speed manual, and a rare Viking Blue on blue color combination. This was by far the biggest, baddest car on the streets of 1963, and its been incredibly preserved as a survivor with only 26,474 actual miles on the clock. Thats simply astounding, weve never seen a Galaxie of any trim level with miles this low, let alone one with the pedigree of an R-code. If you want the best original Ford Galaxie on the market, this is probably it.br / br / Code E Viking Blue is this cars original color and now that youve seen it, its hard to imagine any more suitable color for a car with so much going for it. The hood was replaced and repainted under warranty in 1963, but other than that, all of that blue paint is original and full-blown survivor grade. So as youd imagine, it definitely show signs of use after 56 years of being exposed to the Texas weather, regardless of how great the climate of the Lone Star state usually is. The paint is somewhat flat, swirled, slightly checked, and scratched in a few areas, but it still presents rather well, with years of character worn proudly on its original steel. Thankfully, and rather impressively, none of the paint is peeling or flaking, and most importantly there are no rust issues to be found. Leave it as is and start a conversation everywhere you go (a new trend thats rising in popularity is to spray clear-coat over survivor paint jobs, ostensibly locking-in the patina or survivor finish forever), or have it resprayed back in Viking Blue for a minimal cost, because this baby isnt going to need a lot of bodywork, if any. Look how straight the quarters are, the exacting factory panel gaps, and the doors close with the most wonderfully solid THUNK weve heard on a sedan in a long time. Of course, the chrome and stainless trim from the factory is still all in place, and its all in very nice shape, as are the original glass and the rubber parts too. Most importantly, the factory 427 emblems still live on the front fenders, perhaps the only warning that anyones going to get about the beatings that this car hands out.br / br / The factory blue vinyl and cloth interior is a great choice for this luxury liner, featuring original seat covers, carpets, door panels, headliner, and dash that are so nicely preserved with only minimal wear that youd never guess it was 56 years old. A bench seat with a Hurst 4-speed is how it came originally and delivers the brute-force performance of a Ford big block in a no-frills way that suggests the guy who originally ordered this car had his priorities in order. The factory gauges cover the basics, and the optional Sun Tachometer strapped to the steering wheel was actually a factory/dealer option, which means this car is strictly 1963 inside. A correct Hurst shifter with a Line Lock setup (theyre not reproduced) manages the 4-speed manual gearbox below, and the big original steering wheel feels great in your hands. The original AM radio is still in the dash, but who cares if it works? Youll never use it after you hear the 427 exhale through the dual exhaust below. And yes, the trunk is truly massive, finished in an original mat and carrying its spare way up front, but remember that it also helps plant the rear tires and youre going to need all the help you can get in that department. br / br / But the real reason this car is special is the believed original 427 cubic inch V8 under the hood, and the only reason we say believed is because theres really no such thing as numbers-matching on a classic Ford. Topped with dual 4-barrel Holley carburetors, it was Fords most potent powerplant and one which also landed in the legendary Cobra. Its completely original and has been very well-maintained throughout the years by a very low amount of conscientious owners (the current owner purchased this Galaxie from the original owners son), which means it fires right up and is ready to kick some butt and take some names once its warmed up. Factory-rated at 425 horsepower and 480-lbs.ft. of torque, this powerful big block was the baddest car on the road back then, leaving any Chevrolet 409, Pontiac 421, Chrysler 431, or Buick Nailhead 401 in the dust, which was the exact reason for the R-code to begin with. It was purposely made to be driven on the street with pride, and taken to the track to dominate. Everything is stock under the hood, with original Holley carburetors, stock manifolds, and chrome valve covers and that matching giant air cleaner proudly wear their 427 badges. The 4-speed manual gearbox muscles through the gears with ease and it was fitted with a heavy-duty rear end out back to make it friendly on the street and aggressive on the track. Nevertheless, we guarantee youve never driven something this big thats also this fast. The undercarriage is all original as well, and youll note details like the cast iron exhaust manifolds, an H-pipe dual exhaust, and a heavy-duty suspension that handles all the body flex and corner bends you can throw at it. Correct painted steel wheels with dog dish hubcaps are the right choice, and carry 215/75/15 whitewall radials from Broadway Classic that perfectly complement the rest of the car.br / br / This is a stunning survivor car in every sense of the word. Awesome colors, awesome pedigree, and insanely low mileage. If you demand the best and your blood flows Ford Blue, this is the car youve been waiting for. Call today!br/br/
