1963 Ford Galaxie 500 XL"Need to sell so lowering the price and letting it run at No Reserve"
1963 Ford Galaxie 500 XL
Offered for sale is my super cool (mildly customized) cruiser that is becoming harder and harder to come by! I love this car but decided to let it go to a new, good home.
I have set the price very reasonably since this is not a 40K show car but a daily used driver and weekend cruiser. You can either drive it as such or turn it into a show car.
The story behind this car, as I was told, is it was built for/by artist Dennis McPhail (you can google him) couple of years ago. However, eventually president of a local Hot Rod club purchased it. He drove it for about a year, and then I acquired it from him.
- Matching clean/clear TX title
- 352 V8 engine
- Electronic ignition
- Power steering (you can drive this car with two (2) fingers)
- Roof done in House of Kolor silver base and flake color (see pic)
- Shaved door handles
- Side exhaust
- Original leaf suspension was removed and replaced with RideTech adjustable CoilOvers (on all 4 corners) - pretty sweet set up - you can adjust the stance and ride
- Recently changed gas tank
- Redone trunk but not carpeted
- Dynamat on the floors
- New wheels with good rubber on all four corners
- Indicator, head and internal lights work as they should
- Good oil pressure
- No overheating issues
- Brakes well
- Installed seat bets front and back
- All windows go up and down well
- Odometer shows 15032, but since it is not hooked up, I cannot verify its accuracy
The car looks great from 10 ft (see pics) but it has some scuffs, chips and cracks in paint. There are some scratches on the windshield as well, but I have new windshield that will go with the car along with new carpet should you choose to install it (I think it's decent, but it came with the car so I am passing it on). I also have extra lenses for brake lights and indoor kick panels with pre-drilled holes for speakers if you want to install stereo system.
The speedo is not hooked up, and it will need a compressor with hoses for A/C (I ride with windows down). The car is pretty solid; however, it has some rust on the bottom of back quarter panels (usual spot)...it is hard to see since it is behind the exhaust, but it is there.
Again, the car shows well but is Not a 40K show car. It is a great cruiser for good price. Leave it as is or restore to show.
