1963 Galaxie 500XL Vert, 390/Tri-carb/4-speed

1963 Galaxie 500XL convertible. This solid, rust free and real 500XL (body code 76B) convertible was repainted at some time in the recent past in its born with Rangoon Red color. The paint shows extremely well and the panels are straight and true with excellent fit and gaps. The doors, hood and trunk all shut nice and all the weatherstrip is in good shape as well. There are two minor imperfections of note on the body. A small ding on the trunk with no paint damage that could easily be fixed with PDR and a scratch approximately 6" long on the lower driver's door. Other than those two issues, and a few stone chips here and there, the rest of the body is beautiful. Both imperfections are shown in the pictures hosted on the link below. The highly optioned interior has what is believed to be all original seat covers, console and carpet all in excellent condition. The power windows work as they should as does the power top. This car was originally equipped with A/C and while the under dash unit is still in place and in great shape, the compressor and other associated equipment was removed at some point in its life. The heat controls are in place as well, but the heater core has been bypassed. This was obviously used as a fair weather car by its previous owners. All of the gauges and dash lights work including the period Rotunda steering column mounted tachometer.



This Galaxie was born with a Z Code 390 4-barrel engine that has been upgraded with a factory tri-carb induction system, cast iron HiPo exhaust manifolds, dual exhaust and larger than stock cam. All of the carbs and linkage work flawlessly and cold starts are a breeze with the working electric choke. The correct 4-speed manual gearbox operates smoothly and quietly and just had a new clutch installed within the last month. The 3.50:1 geared 9" rear end rounds out the trouble free drivetrain and allows for highway cruising as well as quick pick up around town. All in all this is an extremely sorted out driver that needs nothing to provide its new owner with years of driving pleasure.
