1963 Ford Galaxie Additional Info:

1963 1/2 Ford Galaxie 500Fastback 2 Door HardtopO R I G I N A L O W N E R

The 1963 ½ Ford Galaxie 500 is unique for many reasons. First of all it is one of the first times that a half-year model came out from any of the Detroit manufacturers. The reason that there was a half-year model was that the boxy 1963 Galaxy 500 was not doing well in sales compared to General Motors, Chryslers, Plymouth/Dodge cars. Ford decided quickly to make a car that had a Nascar look and they came up with the new roof style, sometimes called “fastback” and it did improve sales and even today most collectors prefer the Nascar look over the boxy look for their collection.

The Ford Galaxie is a full-size carthat was built in the United States by Fordfor model years 1959 through 1974. The name was used for the top models in Ford's full-size range from 1958 until 1961, in a marketing attempt to appeal to the excitement surrounding the Space Race. For 1962, all full-size Fords wore the Galaxie badge, with "500" and "500/XL" denoting the higher series.

The Galaxie was the high volume counterpart to the Chevy Impala.

The 1963 model was essentially unchanged save for some freshening and added trim; windshields were reshaped and a four-door hardtop 500/XL was added. The lower, fastback roofline was added mid-year to improve looks and make the big cars more competitive on the NASCAR tracks with the added down force. This 1963½ model, the industry's first official "½ year" model, was called the "Sports Hardtop" or "Fastback" (it shared this feature with the for 1963½ Falcon). Galaxie buyers showed their preference as the new Sports Hardtop models handily outsold the "boxtop" square-roof models. The Sports Hardtop was available in both Galaxie 500, and Galaxie 500/XL trim.

The car in this ad is also unique, as it is with the original family that bought the car brand new and they even have the original cancelled check that was used to purchase the car. Besides all that the husband decided to upgrade the motor to a 302 engine.

The following is the information that has been provided by the private seller:

1963 Ford Fastback Galaxie 500 2-door hardtop

Purchased vehicle new by the husband and wife.

53,696 miles on the car as of 6/13/2016

Her husband had the following done:

Complete repaint. Believed to be the original color.

Upholstered seats.

Replaced carpet.

The husband upgraded the engine to a Ford 302 engine because he wanted the bigger engine.

Cruise-O-Matic transmission

The car has dual exhaust.

A newer radio was installed at some point.

The clock is in the glove box and was being made ready to have rebuilt.

New radial tires.

The wife has not had an opportunity to wash and detail the car so the pictures show the condition as it was the day the photos were taken. Obviously the car can look even better after detailing.

The gentleman helping with the picture taking of the car said the only thing he noticed was a very minor ding in the right front fender. Otherwise the car looks very good and the original bumpers look to be in good condition.

The best part about this whole car is that the reserve is super low! Yes, if you are looking for an entrance grade collectible or need a unique car for one of your children or grandchildren to drive at college this could be the exact car that would make them stand out among their classmates. The car is a wonderful basic driver and would make any person realize that they got a lot of value for their money considering the low reserve. The car is also available for export and if you are bidding from out of the country we ask that you call us first 847-774-4857. This is a full size car that can easily seat six people with lots of luggage space, you can tour hundred of miles a day in comfort.

Here at MissChiTown we truly feel that it is one of the best values that we have seen recently.
