Classic car fans that want a car that looks clean and great, but not so original and pristine that it can’t be driven might want to check out this 1963 Ford Galaxie 500 XL. This car looks fantastic in photos in a dark maroon finish with black vinyl interior. The 1963 Ford Galaxie 500 XL has a 390 cubic-inch V8 engine under the hood paired with a 4-speed manual transmission.
The car has emblems on the front fenders that call out a 427 V8 engine, but those are just for show as the seller says the engine is the 390 cubic-inch V8 mentioned. The paint on the car isn’t original, and we have no idea if it’s the original color or not. The dark maroon looks fantastic with the black vinyl interior.
The car has front bucket seats with a center console and a rear bench. It does have seatbelts and front disc brakes to slow it down. The rear brakes are drum units. Other features include an AM radio, defroster, and heater. No AC on this bad boy and if you live in a hot climate, that won’t be nice in the summer.
The seller says that the actual mileage is unknown, but the odometer calls out 1,653 miles. This 1963 Ford Galaxie 500 XL would make great nice weather cruising car or a great base for a restomod. The asking price is $24,995. In the ’60s the Galaxie 500 was raced as a stock car, check out this 1963 Ford Galaxie stock car replica.
