Hi Bob, Love it! You did a great job! Is it a real 427 car? Or didyou restore it as such? Very nice job ether way! Only thing thatwould Or, That I would have done is put the close ratio Top-Loader 4speed in her! That would have made it Just that much better! Thatsjust my opinion, But ALL Old and newer Mussel cars Must have a 4Speeds or 5 or 6 speeds! As long as its a real gear banger and notthe pussy Automatic! Hell, My wife would not even drive this with anAuto in it! Sorry! (o; But it is a very Nice car! I had a 61 Galaxyand a 64 and a 1/2 Galaxy convertible!

Nice ’63 1/2 – nice stance with the Cragers looks like it just pulled into the Drive-in in ’69! The bubble scoop gives it the 427 lightweight flavor! You have every right to be proud of this sweet baby!
Very well done! Looks fantastic. I’d be proud to own ‘er.
This is my car it has a 445 stroker 508hp. C6 built by TCI. A 9″ 31 spline with richmond390 gears I did all the work my self ecept the tranny took me 5 yrs. Of frame off. I love this car
I have one with a 429 PI ,c6,classic auto air, cragers, Candy red with white leather,tilt, cruise,am/fm cd,rack and pinion ,disc brakes,would you e-mail me and tell me how you cool it , with what radiator, etc. Mine runs fine until you turn the air on and get in a little traffic then it just climbs up past 220.I am at my wits end,
My blue one had a 352. My friend had the exact same one with Cragar supersports and the same color as this one with a 427 lowriser in it.
1963 & 1/2 Galaxy 500. 390 w/4 speed
In those days, the “stock cars” were required to be available at a dealer, so you could actually order one just like the one that won yesterday at Darlington/Daytona or where-ever. If you wanted the 3/4-lift, you had to get that your own self…
I had a white 63 500XL with a 390 in it. wish I still had it!
63 Ford Galaxie 500. NASCAR motor under that bubble-hood. Cragar SS’s.
