For your consideration is a very nice 1963 Galaxie XL500. In Rose Beige, with an XL Package, 390FE 4-speed she is one rare Gal! This salt free car was purchased in Texas by its current owner in 1993. A rare remote mirror was an option added to this cars already impressive XL500 package.This beautiful '63 has the 300 HP 390 Ford FE Z-code engine. Above and beyond that, it is outfitted and upgraded with with some 406/405HP G-code goodies! Much like a G-code 406 this XL 500 has a 6V Triple Holley 3×2 induction (tripower) and cast iron 406FE headers. This car runs and sounds like a true HIPO car. The 390 barks through its cast iron headers & dual exhaust and sounds amazing! Shifting gears is a dream with the smooth shifting tough Borg-Warnder T-10 4-speed. If you haven't been behind the wheel of a 390 or bigger FE 4-speed Galaxie, you would be surprised how well they run. These cars can hang with the sporty pony cars with no issues. AC blows cold!

The block, C3 heads, T-10 and 9" rear end are still originalto the car. The engine is very strong but is beliedto be originalstandard bore with the only modificationsbeing the hipo 406 intake and exhaust.

If you are looking for an investment, a car to take to shows or just something to put the top back and enjoy some nice driving - this car should be considered. Give me a call or swing in and go for a ride in this beauty!
