R-Code Ford Galaxie 500 R-Code 427 Side Oiler 4-Speed Original Car!

The 1963.5 Ford Galaxie 500 427 R-Code is a highly sought-after classic car among enthusiasts and collectors. It was produced during a transitional period within the 1963 model year, hence the designation "1963.5". The "427" refers to the cubic inch displacement of its engine, which was a massive 7.0-liter V8. The "R-Code" designation signifies that it was equipped with the highest performance engine option available from Ford at the time. This engine was capable of producing around 425 horsepower, making it one of the most powerful engines of its era.

The car
Very fast and very cool car! This Galaxie R code is the first real Muscle car built before they built the GT40 and the Cobra's. This engine is used for the GT40 and Cobra's back in the 1960s, and there is a lot of racing history around the Galaxie R code And the Galaxie 500 Lightweight cars, as they were very successful on the streets, strip, and track! The 427 Side oiler with the 4-speed manual transmission is a blast to drive. The car is completely vintage-looking, but also very fresh-looking.

Shelby used this engine and this setup to create the GT500 in 1967! The same carbs are used for it.

The car comes with a completely rebuilt real 427 Side oiler engine and is built with a roller rocker hydraulic camshaft setup for a more durable engine. The nice thing about this is that when you just slightly hit the gas pedal, the engine comes very quickly alive and is very direct. As with hydraulic roller lifters, you have less play and a fast gas-to-engine reaction. The engine is still breaking in, so for the first 500 km, we need to be a little kind to this car. After that, you can step on it and use it where it is built!

The car came in its original red paint with an original red and white interior. The complete car is still very nice-looking but comes with patina everywhere. The underside is coated and painted in a black coating and shows age as well, but that is fine with this particular car. You can make it nice and clean again very easy if you want, but we have decided to let this car be as is. The interior shows age, but we like that patina, and all the gauges are working correctly, even the tachometer!
