0 Miles 427 2 x 4BBL V8 Manual2 Dr Sedan West Coast Classics presents an absolutely exceptional and highly desirable example of this 1963 Ford Galaxie 2 Door Sedan with a 427 c.i. short block engine with dual quads matched to a Borg Warner 4 speed T10 manual transmission with a Hurst shifter in it’s mostly all original ‘Raven Black’ factory color paint and original ‘Red’ vinyl interior with a reported 24K original miles on the body! The car boasts it’s all original build sheet, floor mats and owner’s manuals and the build was completed by a former Galaxie/427 collector and done right.
This is real deal all American muscle in completely rust free condition and a car which was upgraded from it’s original ‘X’ code 352/220HP V8 engine to this highly desirable and rebuilt with only all Ford internal components 1965 427 FE engine with easily over 450HP with 2×4 BBL carbs and which sounds like a jet taking off and drives absolutely magnificently. The 427 FE engine with ‘Crites’ headers is mated to a T10 Borg Warner 4 speed manual transmission with a ‘Hurst’ shifter and a ‘Centerforce’ clutch and pressure plate with a Big Pulley generator with all the power laid out via a Detroit locker 28 spline Ford 9 inch rear end with 3.50 gears. She has 3 inch big bearing brakes up front. The carbs are correct and have the Green tags on them. This is the same motor run in the Le Mans racing cars of this era and which were built to run at high rpms for hours on end. Basically set up stripped down like a street racing weekend drag car from this era including the track bars and full 3 inch exhaust. All the bushings are in excellent condition and the suspension is super tight. This beast pulls until you have to let off, it will not stop! For 1962, the Galaxie name was applied to all of Ford’s full size models, as Fairlane moved to a new intermediate and the Custom model was temporarily retired. The new top-line Galaxie 500 (two-door hardtop, four-door sedan and hardtop and the Sunliner convertible) and the most desirable Galaxie 500/XL (two-door hardtop and convertible) models were also introduced; the 292 cu in (4.8 L) V8 was standard on the 500/XL with optional higher horsepower engines available. The 500XL (named after the 500 mile NASCAR races in which Ford was doing so well) was the first of the big performance Ford’s and offered bucket seats and center console, as well as a sportier trim both inside and out.
