In 1963, Ford first dominated NASCAR Stock Car series with the newly introduced 427 Fastback Galaxie.  From there, these 427 supercars began to appear at selected dealers around the nation (Russ Davis, Tasca, Bob Ford).  This Galaxie comes from the prestigious family of pure Ford thoroughbred racing.  This car, a super rare Q Code model equipped with the fierce factory 427 rated at 410 horsepower with manual 4 speed transmission is available for sale at Happy Days Dream Cars right now.  Only 1038 Q Code 427s were produced which is the smallest production figures of all engine options for 1963.  Besides being rare, this beautiful Greg Donahue restoration is 100% correct from the date coded dual mufflers to the impeccable engine compartment down to correct factory markings, wires, hoses, stamps and castings.  Using OEM and New Old Stock parts during restoration, this car with its enviable racing heritage is one of, if not THE finest 500XL 427 Q Coded Galaxiesavailable in the world!  The new fastback design introduced at about mid-year was much more aerodynamic and “race friendly” than the old notchback body.  The engineers  also lowered the car for even better aerodynamics and a lower center of gravity.
