1963 Ford Galaxie 500 Fastback
This is the era when the coupes were big, fast, and brilliant. This 1963 Ford Galaxie 500 has a distinct color combo and V8 power all wrapped in a vintage fastback body built for cruising. Those who know Fords, know how special this car is. 1963 was the first year Ford had a little fun with aerodynamics, and they introduced the fastback roofline to better compete in NASCAR. And this sporty attitude is continued on the bright work double strips that run the length of the car, concave grille, wraparound bumpers, and jet-inspired taillight trim. It even has iconic Mag wheels for an extra bit of sporty flair. But what you might like best is the paint. The B-code Pagoda Green was added to the palette as a bright and cheery color for spring only. It would only be available again on Ford cars as special editions. The two-tone of the interior almost looks like they mixed the blue and turquoise to create the exterior color, and so this is a very well-coordinated total package. As a full-sized car of the '60s, you'll have no trouble fitting plenty of family and friends. But even if you're driving all alone, this Ford provides lots of appeal. The upgraded three-spoke steering wheel has plenty of grip, and the long horizontal speedometer is flanked by the round gauge pods. Plus, this cool cruiser has plenty of factory bright work to remind you of the chrome king era. Ford's small block 289 V8 is terrific for providing plenty of power, and the glass pack dual exhaust gives a hint of its NASCAR pedigree. The motor looks like it has received the right care, and it's not just because of the polished valve covers and air topper. The details like the belts and wires have the kind of look that tell you someone has looked after the motor. Plus, with power steering, an automatic transmission, and the modern grip of Uniroyal Tiger Paw GTS tires, this classic coupe is still a fine cruiser today. This cool Galaxie 500 fastback is truly a noteworthy classic hardtop. So if you want affordable distinction, don't let this deal slip away. Call now!
