Ford Galaxie XL500 - today's tempter

GALAXIE 1963 Ford Galaxie GALAXIE

Fastback two-door

With a 25-year production run, the Ford Galaxie name was planted on a huge aray of machinery, including two and four-doors, some of the latter in pillarless form, plus of course a string of soft-tops.

Among the most desirable is the 1959 Skyliner which, in good condition, is an expensive car.

Close behind, we reckon, are the fastback two-doors from mid-1963 through to 1964. These were the shape that really made an impact on Nascar, with variants such as the 1963 R-code and 1964 Holman Moodie racers still having huge appeal today.

The example shown here is a 'civilian' version by all appearances, still in left hand drive. Its build date means the range was running the 289 V8 as the base engine, backed by a three-speed auto. This one also claims power brakes.

Located in Adelaide, it's on the market for $47,900.
