Rickam,  I had already welcomed you in your previous post about acquiring your Mach1.

Then....I saw that beautiful 63 XL vert parked next to your Mach 1 in this intro post. I am a huge fan of the 60's Galaxies from Ford's Total Performance days!  I tried to expand the picture to see what color the  engine fender emblem is but then became too fuzzy. Is that a 390, early 406 or a 427 car?

I became hooked on those cars when i saw my first XL in 1963. We lived in Memphis, school was out for the summer, and I was riding my bicycle near the Holiday Inn headquarters close to where we lived. I saw a black 63 Ford in the employees parking lot so I rode closer to get a better look. She turned out to be a 63 1/2 fastback XL with a 427,  (Gold engine fender emblems) red bucket seat interior, and 15" wheels that had the spinner style wheel covers unique to the 427 cars.

I've been hooked on them ever since!    :)

No Officer...I really don't know how fast I was going, my speedometer stopped at 140!

Welcome from Oklahoma. Like Steve, I love FE powered Galaxies. My first ride in a fast car was a 1963 1/2 Galaxie 500 XL. 427 2x4V 4 speed. It was insanely fast compared to anything I'd ridden in at he time. I've been hooked on speed ever since. Chuck

Welcome from Oregon.

 

Nice '63, one of my favorite years, along with '57s and '61s (Ford's of course).
