Description

This triple-black G-code 1963 Galaxie convertible was factory-equipped with both, providing it with the 406 tri-power muscle to back up its sporting 500XL image. Additional equipment includes a 4-speed manual transmission with optional floor shifter, AM/FM radio and Firestone tires on painted steel wheels with Ford small-diameter hubcaps. An upgrade from the previous 390 big-block, the 406 resulted from a .080-inch overbore, but the larger FE was also enhanced by a stronger block, solid-lifter camshaft, heavy-duty connecting rods, larger valves and high-flow exhaust manifolds. For normal driving, the 406 Super High Performance’s 6V carburetion operated on the center 330 CFM 2-barrel. But with the pedal to the floor, the progressive linkage opened a pair of outboard 2-barrels rated at 350 CFM each for a 1,030 CFM rush of acceleration and full-throated sound.
The 406 package also included heavy-duty suspension, fade-resistant drum brakes, a higher-capacity radiator and 15-inch wheels. Along with bucket seats and a console, the 500XL package added “bucket-styled” rear seat upholstery, Mylar interior trim and chrome ribbed exterior molding. With its 500XL and checkered-flag 406 emblems on the front fenders, this Galaxie convertible was restored in its factory-correct Raven Black on Black color combination.
