I have an opportunity to get what I have always considered my dream car, a 63 427 Galaxie. I can trust my HAMB friends to be grounded and help me out (In case I have a bad case of the Goo Goo Eyes or if I'm not on the right track...) with this or at least provide the sharp wit that makes this place unique. OK here's the details.... Car...1963 Galaxie 500 2dr sedan....originally a 289 3 speed car. in original paint, some body damage Engine...Crossbolt main 427 Dual quad with aluminum heads, headers..... cammed up Transmission....Toploader 4 speed The car has some issues. A tree fell across the roof and deck lid. There is sheet metal damage but no structure is involved and it's been pushed out..Honestly I would leave it be for the time being. Someone with no concept of taste airbrushed Dang Awful graphics on top of the otherwise pristine 63 paint. Too, the interior was done in the same color clashing scheme. Someone needed a color wheel. The engine, it appears to be a legit 427 but it's been built up for racing. New hi-tech looking heads, long tube headers, Thunderbolt intake pipes from the inside lights, dual quads and I'm pretty sure it's running electric pumps. Here is what gnaws at me about the car. I would much prefer the engine to be closer to stock. A period 427 car was badass but this????? If it runs like it looks, do I really have a use for it? Is it worth selling off my stuff for this? Value....In my opinion not as much as you would think. 63 289 sedan damaged with cheese fest graphics, interior, and a high school boy wiring job....Value is there but limited. Cross bolt 427....worth more than the car, maybe a lot more but it would be worth lot more in 63 specs. It's been fooled with. The Drama.....you knew it was coming. The present owner is a good guy. That's how he got the car. He loaned a guy in need money for it and never seen him again after he got 2 payments back. He tried to find the guy he's gone. That was a few years back. He's not a car guy. He wants it out of his garage. He really wants back what he has in it and all I'll say is it's South of 5 grand. If it all checks out with the law.... I was going to offer 5 to 7 thousand for it after I thin the herd. Is that fair?
