  • 1963 Ford Galaxie

    The 1963 Galaxie was a classic from the first day it rolled off the showroom floor. This car's distinctive lines and styling are timeless and are now among the most collected Fords of any era. These Galaxies offered many choices for the car buyer. The line offered a large choice of models starting with the Galaxie Sedan. These Galaxie were the base model cars with very simple trim and ornamentation, usually equipped with the smaller engine configuration; However, these cars could be special ordered with just about any engine. The Galaxie 500 Sedans, Hardtop, and Convertible were a step up from the base model Galaxie and featured an attractive full length upper and lower body side molding and attractive cloth and vinyl interior trim package. The Galaxie 500XL models were available in the Hardtop both four door and two door, the Convertible and the 1963 ½ Galaxie Fastback which featured a new sporty roof line with no post and Starliner type looks. The standard equipment on these cars was a deluxe offering with standard bucket seats and console, full wheel covers, wall to wall carpeting, courtesy lights, contoured deluxe seat upholstery among other luxury features. The 1963 was offered with several engine choices. The Mileage Maker Six Cylinder (All models except 500XL), 260 V-8 at 164 horsepower, the 352 Thunderbird V-8 at 220 horsepower, the Thunderbird 390-4V engine at 300 horsepower, the 406 Thunderbird High Performance with tri-power carburetion at 405 horsepower. Ford later introduced the 427 high performance engine in both a single four barrel version at 410 horsepower and a dual four barrel carburetor at an astounding 425 horsepower. This engine option was offered in a very limited number of 1963 Galaxies. Transmission types were the Synchro Smooth manual column shift, the 4 speed manual on the floor, Fordomatic Drive automatic, and Cruise-O-Matic three speed automatic. Some of the available options for 1963 are as follows: Swing Away Steering Wheel, Power Front Seat, Power Windows, Power Steering, Power Brakes, Padded Dash and Visors, Backup Lights, Deluxe Wheel Covers, Spotlight Mirrors and Select Aire Conditioner. Words fail to describe the beauty and design of this legendary Galaxie. The 1963 will always be of great interest to the car collector and Ford enthusiast.

    When you receive a Legend Series brake kit, you get everything necessary to install the kit on your 1963 Ford Galaxie. Every part from the dust caps to the flexible brake hoses and everything in between. If you purchase a power kit, you get the booster/master combination and a combination valve. Go with a manual kit and get the master cylinder and push rod along with the combination valve.

It's a memorial in the form of a '63 Ford Galaxie police squadcar.

Looking for a simple, straight-forward brake upgrade for your 1963 Ford Galaxie? Look no further. If you can remove the original drum brake assembly from the spindle, you can install our disc brake conversion kit. Once the drum assembly is removed, everything assembles on the spindle without removing it from the vehicle. Assemble and bleed, that is all that is necessary.
