1963 Ford Galaxie 427 Group N Historic Touring Car Chasing Falcon GTHO
Group N Historic Touring Cars at Eastern Creek in Nov 2011. Driver is Marc
Ducquet who is chasing down Mick Kennedy in the red XW Falcon GTHO that is
straight ahead on the starting grid. Race was eventually red flagged due to
the amount of cars that had gone off the track and also a major crash at
1967 USA Ford LTD Galaxie Fastback Coupe 390 Big Block V8 -- 3-Speed Auto
This Coupe is an extremely unique example of a classic USA Ford Galaxie
Fastback Coupe, with all the LTD additions. Then the killer combination of
Black duco and Black interior -- Black on Black, now throw in a mean set of
The Galaxie has been slightly lowered to fit perfectly on her 20" rims. The
ride height is in just right with a tough stance. She drives true and
straight down the road and around bends without any rubbing. Some of the
most recent improvements include; Complete interior redone, New 20" rims &
tires (less than a year old), New Pencil Tip chrome Exhaust tips, New vinyl top (less than a year
old), Motor: rebuilt in 2005 all moving parts refurbished, New gas tank and
Interior: As mentioned recently replaced, the seats are in great nic, as
are all the door skins and handles. The headliner looks in good condition
and the dash looks nearly immaculate with one crack (in well of speedo).
The weather stripping and window felts are showing signs of wear around the
place. The carpet is also in good shape without ware or stains.
Body: The door panels are straight and fit as the originals would. The
paint is fair I have to say and give it around 7 out of 10 (no bog, just
old enamel straight out the gun). All the chrome and bright work is in
tack, some of the trim has a few dents and imperfections when looking hard.
The bumpers are in near flawless condition, but have lost a bit of the
bling. Rust; all of the common places appear to be rust free and all the
floors look nice and solid. With all the original sheetmetal still in place
no patches to be seen.
Other Bits: The 3-Speed Auto shifts without noise or issue and the kick
back seems to work fine. The brakes on this thing would put most modern
cars to shame, with a nice big Booster under the hood. The Galaxie stops a
treat and has a very firm pedal. The power steering works a treat without
any signs of any leaks or wear. This vehicle drivers very well for a Muscle
Car Classic .
Condition: Vehicle is in great condition for its nearly 47 years on this
planet, however is sold in, as is condition. With no warranty given or
implied. She's a beautiful car and although not a show car, I believe with
a little work she could compete with the best. The only discrepancies are;
factory radio & speakers have been removed, the blower and windscreen
whippers don't work.
Fine Print: More than happy to answer any genuine questions about the car,
just send an message anytime and I'll pass on my contact details. Locally
for Sale can be removed at any time. Any Inspections of Vehicle welcomed at

Presented for your consideration is this gorgeous black-on-black, 390
powered, 4-speed, air-conditioned Galaxie 500 XL coupe, just like the ones
Ford used to dominate NASCAR in the '60s. A true two owner car from one
family in Missouri fully restored and showing 56,129 original miles, this
is one awesome piece of Ford history. It just received a thorough polish
and looks absolutely radiant in that silky Raven Black paint and the
amazing trim that Ford used on the top-of-the-line Galaxies.
Speaking of paint, the surfaces on this car look recent, and are done in a
2-stage system for a deep, rich finish that acrylic lacquer and enamels
from 1964 just can't touch. Sinister and imposing, this is the car you
always wished your father would buy instead of the stodgy 4-door with an
inline six and automatic transmission. The flanks are very straight, and I
have no problems believing that this was a clean car before restoration.
All sheet-metal on this Galaxie is original to the car and panel gaps are
better than average all around. Look at the pictures again and remember how
hard it is to make a black car look good under the harsh lights in the
photo booth—bad prep can't hide from the camera, and there are no cut
corners on this Galaxie, it's all first-rate workmanship. And as I
mentioned, our own detail shop put the final shine on the paint just a few
days ago, making this car show-ready today.
The assembly line installed 390 cubic inch "Thunderbird Special" V8 under
the hood has been detailed and looks awesome in its original gold color. It
is dominated by the big, round air cleaner housing, and, in this particular
car, the air conditioning compressor, which was factory equipment. Hoses
and wiring are new, and RKM just installed a correct Autolite battery the
other day. The original single master cylinder is still in place on the
original power brake Booster, but
note that this car does not have power steering, strange, but just a part
of this car's mystique. The bottom of the hood has been finished to a much
higher standard than original, too; look at the reflection of the engine in
The muscular 390's power is transmitted rearward through a bulletproof
Toploader 4-speed manual, which absolutely transforms the car's
personality. Luxury car? Muscle car? Both? The transmission is plenty stout
enough to bang through the gears. And speaking of gears, of course there's
a rock solid Ford 9-inch rear out back, the same one that has been
transmitting power for all the big horsepower racers for
decades now. The floors are solid, as is the frame, and all the mechanical
pieces have been recently rebuilt and serviced, making this Galaxie a
turn-key hobby car. True dual Exhaust
feeds a pair of Flowmaster mufflers that sound great behind the big 390,
not too loud, but enough to let people know this isn't grandma's
grocery-getter. It looks like there's a new shock absorber at each corner,
the brakes are firm and stop the car well, and it rides on relatively
recent 225/75/14 whitewall tires and original spinner hubcaps.
The interior features black vinyl deluxe bucket seats and a center console
that houses the shifter for the 4-speed. The front seat covers, headliner,
and carpet are new, while the rest is a combination of outstanding original
pieces and items that were replaced in the past. It shows extremely well,
with very little wear and tear on any of the surfaces. There's an original
Ford pushbutton AM radio with front and rear speakers, with the rear one in
the center of the rear seat behind a gorgeous chrome grille. The steering
wheel is gorgeous, with the Galaxie 500 XL emblem in the center and a
rim-blow horn ring. I really dig the gold anodized appearance of the gauge
faces, better than plain black or the more common brushed silver, and it's
amazing how "right" it looks in this black '60s cruiser.
Fords are still relatively under-valued when compared to their GM and Mopar
competition, and this gentleman's express Galaxie is a screaming bargain!
