1963 Ford Galaxie 500XL $85,000
Factory 406/405 hp - 4 Speed!
Only 28,000 miles on this extremely rare and very original "G" code Galaxie 500XL convertible. The durable 406 cubic inch V8 engine with tri-power and solid lifters is teamed to a four speed manual transmission. It's factory rated at 405 horsepower! This engine was Fords response to Chevy's 409. The 352/390 FE block was recast and strengthened for the 406 application with thicker cylinder walls in addition to stronger internals, cast iron headers, 2-1/2 inch exhaust, improved heads, high lift cam and as mentioned solid lifters and tri-power carburation. The compression ratio is 11.5 to 1. This may be the finest unrestored example to be found. Its had one repaint in the original color of Heritage Burgundy and the Light Rose interior is all original. The odometer indicates 28,000 miles which is stated as correct by prior ownership (title states exempt because of age). Most importantly, the car condition reflects that of a low mile original car. It runs, drives and performs excellent too! It was previously part of the Tom Gerrard car collection in Blue Sky Montana.
