1963 Ford Galaxie 500XL Convertible
 

 
Purchased this project car from an older guy a couple weeks ago. Back panel where the convertible top folds into is completely rusted out. The passenger floor panel was also rusted out. Other than that, the overall body was in okay shape.

I sent it to a shop to start doing the body and some engine/transmission work.

I plan on putting in the original 390 engine for now and save up for some type of swap. LS, coyote etc.

Any old school folks have any suggestions on what to do with it?

Sending it to a family member for body work and then sending it to the paint shop. Paint shops around my area tend to procrastinate when they have body work to do. But when you get the body work done in advance they tend to work a little faster maybe a little more motivation to them in a way. The interior will be done right away as well

Its good you swapped out the old motor, i forgot the issue with them but most of them go bad within 50,000 miles. Stay away from those, 4100's and northstars.

Coyote. It's more expensive but keep it Ford. A Coyote lacks a bit in torque but makes up for it in the top end. Ooooohhh and if you could put the 10 speed auto in there too!!!

My first car was a 64 XL, black on black, it sat like a muscle car when I first got it but I dropped it and found the original hubcaps and fender covers for the back wheels, put a 390 and a cruisematic in it, I loved that car, had to sell it when we moved.. I don't have space for sh*t where I'm at now
