1963 1/2 Ford Galaxie 500 R-Code
Ford Collectors, opportunities like this do not come around very often, and when they do you have to move fast because they will vanish before your eyes. Feast your eyes on this absolutely beautiful 1963 1/2 Ford Galaxie 500 427/425hp R-Code that is a true museum piece in every respect. This ultra-rare Ford full-size muscle car received a documented frame-off restoration by Ford Galaxie expert Greg Donahue, and has been features in numerous magazines as well as being featured on the cover of the 1963 Ford Galaxie restoration manual. Mr. Donahue will verify that this car is 100% numbers matching and has 150 date-code correct components, which is the maximum for a 1963 1/2 Ford Galaxie 500 R-Code car. I truly feel that this is the finest example of its kind in existence! The 100% rust-free sheet metal is laser straight and the correct (Code M) Corinthian White paint is absolutely gorgeous. All of the chrome & stainless trim is in show quality condition throughout. The (Code 95) red vinyl interior is flawless and looks as it did 50 years ago when it sat on the showroom floor. All of the gauges, lights, blinkers, etc., work perfectly. Even the AM/FM radio and lighter work like new! When you slide into the interior, it truly feels like you are stepping back in time to an era when American-made cars ruled the world. Step out, open the hood, and the first thing you notice is how highly detailed the engine bay is w/ concours touches everywhere you look. Nestled inside is the original numbers matching 427/425 hp R-Code engine w/ its original dual-quad carburetors and its beautiful chrome valve covers w/ the notorious '427' winged logo. This is a very special motor that runs & performs as good as it looks. The original numbers matching 427/425 hp is linked to the original numbers matching T10 4-Speed transmission which feeds power to the original factory 4.11 rear axle. For those of you who have never driven one of these factory R-Code cars, they are extremely fast, especially when equipped w/ the 4.11 rear-end, as many of these R-Codes came from the factory w/ the 3.50 rear axle. No power steering, no power brakes and heater delete, this ultra-rare Galaxie 500 was ordered for one thing only, going FAST! She starts, runs and drives just like she did back in 1963, and you will be pinned back in the seat when you apply your right foot firmly to the floor! Full documentation includes two 3" binders full of restoration photos, letters from Greg Donahue documenting every step of the frame-off restoration, original owners manual, original 1063 Ford Galaxie brochure, magazine features of the car, muscle car collector card featuring the Galaxie and piles of receipts dating back to 1963. Again, this 1963 1/2 Ford Galaxie 500 R-Code is a true museum piece and is the finest available anywhere at any price! This is an investment grade vehicle that will only continue to appreciate as the years go by. You simply cannot go wrong investing in a collector car of this stature. Enclosed transport is available anywhere in the world at the buyers expense.
