1963 Ford 406 Dual Quad Galaxie 500 XL Sport Hardtop

Why This Car Is Special

Ford in the early 60's, saw the rise of drag-strips and circle track racing and American auto manufacturers were finding out that the more cubic inches and pure horsepower they could put is muscle cars, the more they would win on the racetrack and the street, hence the more of these cars they could sell.

If you are a big block Ford performance fan you will know and get excited about this 1963 Ford 427 Dual Quad Galaxie 500 XL Sport Hardtop we have here at Skyway Classics.

Per the Trim Tag, it was ordered as a 63C-2 dr. Hardtop Fastback in E-Acapulco Blue with a #82-Blue Interior, and an X-352 V8 engine.

Our complete restored Ford now is powered by a very high horsepower dual-quad 427 cubic inch big block Ford engine.


Our 1963 Ford Galaxie 500 XL has a big block 427 "Top Oiler" cubic inch engine under the hood built by Southern Automotive Engines of McDonough, Ga, topped by a twin 600 CFM 4-barrel performance carburetor setup, Edelbrock Performer aluminum cylinder heads, chrome Edelbrock dual quad 427 aluminum open air cleaner adorned with 427 emblem and decal, chrome valve covers, aftermarket large tube exhaust headers, Edelbrock aluminum water pump and chrome fuel pump, power steering, power brakes, modified MSD Pro Billet ignition and performance spark plug wires, and sits in a very period correct clean, painted, and detailed engine compartment.

It is shifted by a Ford Top Loader 4-speed manual gearbox handles the big block's horsepower and out the Ford 9" Positraction HD rear end. The undercarriage shows the details like the dual exhaust, and H.D. suspension as it rides on 5-spoke grey aftermarket era correct mag wheels and raised white letter Firestone Firehawk performance tires and stops great with custom front disk brakes.


The interior looks so good with the blue twin bucket seats and matching rear full seat with both sporting a console in the middle, the front housing a Hurst 4-speed shifter, blue carpets and 427 logo floor mats, chrome-accented matching blue door panels, aftermarket black/chrome steering wheel, as well as the dash with all the factory gauges, accessory gauges under the dash, AM/FM retrofit receiver radio with a trunk mount CD stacker, Sunpro tachometer, and even a clock.


Our Ford is painted in Ford Factory Code E-Acapulco Blue and looks as sinister as it did back in 1963, but the glossy blue paint is surely worlds better than it was in 1963.

The body panels look straight and the doors close solid, the chrome and stainless trim is shiny, and the factory 427 emblems on the front fenders give warning about you thinking twice about pulling up alongside it at a stop light.


This Acapulco Blue beauty 427 cubic inch 1963 Galaxie 500 XL 2dr we have here at Skyway Classics is a reminder of how much of a muscle car and terror on the street these were when they were one of the fastest Fords available in its day.

It is restored and upgraded and looks mean even today. If you want a big block big body Ford muscle car, this is the car you have been waiting for.
