Talk about ridden hard and put away wet. This one owner 1963 1/2 Galaxie 500 was ordered from the factory with the potent 427 cid FE big block. It was ordered to drag race and that’s exactly what it did for several years, but then was put in storage. It’s been gathering dust there for more than four decades. 

Amazingly the original 427 engine and transmission are still with the car! This is practically unheard of with such a valuable muscle car like this that has been abandoned for so long. In fact most of the original parts are there, along with some period correct racing parts like an aluminum NHRA scatter shield, after market headers, electric fuel pump and wheels. But wait, there’s more. The original owner had the foresight to keep all the original parts! He still has the original cast iron manifolds, clutch fan and blade, wheels and hub caps. AND there’s paperwork to back it all up, including the original bill of sale, window sticker, warranty book and build sheet.

What a great piece of muscle car history! Not only does it have a very desirable big block 427, but also a great history with original factory documentation. This car will definitely be restored.

    I owned a 1963 1/2 Ford Galaxie 500 with the same Bullet Taillights I saw on the rear of that car. I love it. Wish I still had it. Would buy the one I saw at Rusting Muscle Cars if I could. My Very First Car.
