1963 Ford 427 Dual Quad Galaxie 500 Replica

Why This Car Is Special

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.

A late production run of 1963 427 Dual Quad Galaxie 500's was Fords answer to the formidable 1963 Chevrolet 409 Dual Quad Impala version and with both rated at 425 horsepower and the fight was on.

We have a replica of those mid-year production 427 1963 Galaxie 500 2dr Sports Roof Fastback here at Skyway Classics.

Mechanical

Our 1963 Ford Galaxie 500 replica has what appears to be a big block 427 cubic inch engine under the hood topped by dual 4-barrel carburetors, Holley finned aluminum valve covers and air cleaner, full length tube headers, power steering and brakes, even air conditioning, and sits in a very period correct clean, painted, and detailed engine compartment.

The 4-speed manual gearbox handles the big block's horsepower and out the 9-inch rear. The undercarriage shows the details like the dual exhaust, and H.D. suspension as it rides on period correct chrome Cragar mag wheels and blackwall tires that don't have a chance against all that horsepower.

Interior

The red bucket seat interior is equally nice. The red buckets and console is sharp and the driver's compartment is as new including the carpets, chrome-accented red door panel, deep-dish red steering wheel, and the 4-speed shifter.

The dash has the factory gauges, AM/FM radio, nice stainless, and the fuzzy dice you need too.

Exterior

Our Ford is painted in Ford Factory Code A Raven Black and looks sinister as it did back in 1963, but the glossy black 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?

Conclusion

This black beauty 427 1963 Galaxie 500 2dr Sports Roof Fastback we have here at Skyway Classics is a replica of one of the fastest Fords available in its day.

It is an iconic replica with awesome colors and sinister looks. If you want a big block big body Ford muscle car, this is the car you have been waiting for.
