Continuing on with our Maximum Auction Weekend, here is a set of rarefied Full Sized Ford sedans that will set off the “Want-O-Meter” of any Hoon that still has a beating heart. Why go woth another Mustang or Torino, when you could bag one of these beauties, and not find another one like it.
Here is a 1966 Ford Custom R-Code Sedan equipped with a 425 HP 427 CID V-8, and a four-speed manual. This is a special car, and according to the auction:
This car underwent a frame off rotisserie restoration that was completed in April 2010. It has a correct Nightmist Blue exterior with light blue interior. It has retained it’s numbers matching original drive train, including carbs, distributor and exhaust manifolds. It is completely documented. Other documentation includes the original purchase agreement, Ford build verification letter, many vintage photos and engine Dyno sheets to verify 442hp at 5782 rpm.
This car should go for a lot of money, but will never commend what a Mopar Hemi brings in. What do you think it will reach? See the listing here.
Here is a 1965 Ford Custom 500 Sedan, which is also equipped with the R-Code 427 CID V-8, and a four-speed manual. According to the Auction Listing:
This 1965 Custom 500 2 door sedan R-Code is one of three sedans known to exist. It is estimated that 320 total R-Code Galaxies were built–per the 427 Galaxie Registry–including 11 convertibles as noted in Mustang & Fords Magazine Feb. 1999. The 427 engine is equipped with two 4 barrel carbs and a 4-speed top loader. The 3:50 axle ratio is correct and original to the car.

This rust-free car resided in Kansas its entire life. The restoration was completed in April 2008. The car received a frame off, rotisserie body, Concourse restoration.
Again, this is a very rare Ford, with very rare accessories, and should do a little better than the 1966. Any guesses as to how much it will bring? See the listing here.
Here is a very rare 1962 Ford Galaxie 500 with the high performance 406 CID V-8 and four-speed manual. According to the Auction Listing:
This car was built in December 1961, which makes it one of the very first 406 cars. This car was optioned out to race and it was. This car was originally purchased and raced by Helen M. Renegar. A copy of the original title is shown in her name. The car was purchased from Hull Dobbs Co. in Winston-Salem, NC. The car was raced the very first part of its life but could not keep up with the 1963 Galaxie lightweights. It was then retired to street duty and mostly sat until 1975 when it went into a muscle car collection.
The car has 30,000 original miles with most of those miles from being towed from race track to race track behind a pick-up. The car is probably the most original 1962 406 Galaxie in existence. The paint, interior, drive train are all totally original and no critical element of the car is known to have ever been rebuilt. The car is an amazing piece of history. Most of the original documentation still exists, such as the window sticker, dealer key bag, 406 high performance supplement and heater instructions that are included with the car.
A very early full-sized Ford that was purchased to race, and is almost entirely original. Now there’s a piece of history that should make anyone take notice. How much do you think this Ford will demand? See the listing here.
Our last full-sized Ford is this 1963 Galaxie 500 XL Hardtop, equipped with the 406 CID V-8, four-speed manual, and a single Holly 4 bbl Carb, whick cranked out a respectable 385 HP. According to the listing:
This 1963 Ford Galaxie 500XL is the top of the line model. It comes with a Borg Warner 4-speed, and the rare B-code single 4V barrel super high performance 406 cubic inch V8 which is rated at 385 HP. Features of this engine package include 11.4 to 1 compression, header exhaust, solid lifters, dual point distributor, Holly 4V carburetor, heavy duty shocks, springs, drive shaft, U-joints, brakes and 15-inch wheels with nylon tires. A new turquoise interior was installed.
This car has 89,000 miles and was treated to a Frame-Off restoration. This will probably go for less than the others, but it’s a little more civilized. See the listing here.
