1964 Galaxy 500 XL 427 V8 Q-Code 4-Spd. Collector Restored

1964 Galaxy 500 XL 427 V8 Q-Code 4-Spd. Collector Restored

This was an original Arizona Rust Free car. Frame off restored 10 years ago and only driven about 200 miles since then. Factory Q Code. Fully detailed under the hood and on the bottom side. If you are a big 427 Fan, this is your baby. Estimate to restore one of these now would run over $100K easily. Here is some addition information on this to answer a few questions that I have gotten on this car. This car has only had 3 owners since new. It has been featured in several national calendars, and magazines and books because of it’s condition and rarity. This is a Numbers Matching Collector Muscle Car. This car was a blast to ride in. Located in Southern Illinois. Contact Tom with questions.

Exterior Photos

Fords Factory Sleeper. The Car is Straight, maybe over restored as the Bottom and under the Hood looks as good as the top. Has some extras added to it, wheels, hood etc. It has all of the original 5.5” Kelsey Hayes wheels and full disc spinners & the original hood .

Interior Photos

One of the Original Luxury Muscle Cars with 4 on the floor, bucket seats & console. Lots of bright trim work.

Engine Photos

Motor compartment detailed to show condition. The motor is the original 427 Engine, transmission is Borg Warner Super T-10, rear end is 4.11 Traction Lock. In layman’s terms it is a top oiler, w/ cross bolted mains, mid rise manifold, top-loader trans. The clutch is 11.5”. This car was produced with a single 4bbl carb, identified as a “Q” code car at 410 hp. I still have all of that equipment. It now has factory tri-power with some engine dress up polished goodies. All of the original equipment has been retained. In the restoration process the 427 received custom pistons a stroker crankshaft and an overbore, it now is 452 ci. and puts out 419 ft # of torque, and 440 hp. It runs fine on Unleaded pump Gas at 9.5-1 compression ratio. It runs better than brand new ( kinda like a race car for the street).

Extra Photos

Well detailed underneath. Even the clock works as the photos show.
