The legend of the Ford 427 is well documented.  Before the Muscle car craze began the manufactures were already putting huge powerful engines in their full size cars, tearing up the drag strips and the stock car speedways across the country.   In 1963 Ford developed the new 427 engine for Galaxies.   Mostly offered in fastback body styles they were introduced mid way through the 1963 production run.  Ford waged war at the race tracks as part of its “total performance” campaign.  “Win on Sunday, sell on Monday!”  These cars dominated NASCAR with 1st through 5th place at Daytona and racked up 23 total wins.  That was more than all it’s competition combined. In Drag Racing the 427 powered Galaxies won top eliminator at most of the countries tracks.   In road racing, the Galaxie totally dominated their class from Riverside to England.  Only 411 R codes were produced with very few receiving the XL trim.   This car spent it’s early life in Southern California before making it’s way to Texas.   During that restoration a correct factory Ford power steering system was added.  That is about the only modification found on this jewel.  Exceedingly rare, limited production, even lower survival rate, and correctness make this a true collectors dream.  It is a beautiful combination of brute performance, elegant styling, and fun in the sun driving that anyone would be proud to call their own.  Make it yours today!
