If you’re looking for an early 60s American muscle car, one of those rare factory equipped racers sold for street duty, look no further, your ride is here. This is a fully restored 1963 1/2 Ford Galaxie 500XL that came from the factory with a 427 cubic inch, 425 horsepower, dual quad “R code” race engine. It also has a factory 4 speed and a “NoSpin” limited slip differential. Disc brakes, too.
It’s black on black, beautifully finished and except for the American Racing wheels and Kumho 225/50 R17 tires, looks just like it did sitting in the showroom over 50 years ago.
No, this isn’t going to, or shouldn’t, see any drag strips in its future, but this is a great example of what Ford was producing in the early 60s to get the attention of every red blooded American motorhead, hoping to get him into the showroom, even if he did eventually settle on something a little less fearsome for daily driver duty. Today, you’ll be the envy of everyone at the local cruise in, or at least those of us of a particular age who can appreciate what this is.
The seller has about 100 photos posted on this listing showing every detail. Before you look though, you might want to get your satellite radio tuned to the 60s on 6, to get your mind right.
