The 1963 Ford Galaxie 500 and the Galaxie500XL were manufactured in both hardtop and convertible versions. As of 2015, the convertible is still available through classic car dealers.
The 1963 Galaxie convertible ranks among the most collected Ford automobiles of any era. The base model Galaxie sedan has a simple exterior and is equipped with a smaller engine configuration than the Galaxie 500 convertible, which features full-length upper and lower body side molding with cloth and vinyl interior trim. The convertible comes with a variety of engine options, including the powerful 406 Thunderbird high-performance engine with tri-power carburisation at 405 horsepower.
