For a brief period during 1962 and the first half of 1963, Ford Motor Company used a rare big block 406 motor as their top-of-the-line High Performance offering for racers and a muscle car hungry public. Available only in a Galaxie 500 or Galaxie 500 XL, these big blocks were called the "Thunderbird 406."
The Ford High Performance 406 came in two flavors, a B Code 385 horsepower with a single four-barrel intake, or the G Code 405 horsepower with triple two-barrel carburetion. They were the top performers at Ford, and were intended to race in NHRA. Their short life span was ended when Ford brought in the 427 for the second half of 1963.
This week, Midwest Car Exchange out of Alsip, Illinois posted a rare 1963 Ford Galaxie 500 B Code 406 2-Door Hardtop for sale in our Ford Muscle Car Section online. (Follow this link to see over forty high resolution photos of this very rare muscle car.) The 1963 Ford Galaxie 500 with B Code 406 ci big block engine brought extra power to the Ford muscle car lineup. Although Ford called it the Thunderbird 406 High Performance V8, this engine was only made available for the Ford Galaxie. It was never offered as a power plant for Ford's popular Thunderbird. Breathing through a single Holley four-barrel carburetor, it came with the Ford aluminum intake. The B Code 406 was rated at 385 horsepower at 5800 rpm and pulled 440 foot-pounds of torque at 3800 rpm. It was a solid lifter engine.
It had 11.4:1 compression and cast-in headers. That allowed the use of low-restriction dual exhaust. Ford's Borg-Warner 4-speed manual transmission was mandatory for the B Code cars. It could be ordered with rear axle ratios as high as 4.11:1.
Much of the 1963 Ford Galaxie 500 B Code 406 history remains unknown. If anyone knows a source for production numbers to sort out how many 500 B Code and 500 G Code hardtops were produced in 1963 we would appreciate your sharing that with our readers. You may follow this link to our Cars On Line blog site where we disclose all we know about the factory production numbers. Using the "Comments Box" at the end of this article you can join in on the conversation about these rare Ford Thunderbird 406 muscle cars. While G Code 1963 Ford Galaxie 500XL's go for over $100,000 at a Barrett-Jackson Auction, how much are the B Codes worth? This one is offered at just $36,900. That makes it seem like a great buy for such a low price. Ford muscle car enthusiasts may want to take note.

We really appreciate it when advertisers tell us about their sales. This week a private seller from Sagamore Hills, Ohio told us he SOLD his 1959 Chevy Apache through his Cars On Line ad. "Less than one week and it's gone!" This customer used the $45.00 Run Till Sold ad and sent his 1959 Chevy Pickup to a new home. Some lucky buyer now has a great classic truck with just a few easy things to finish. Now the seller knows why we always say, "You can advertise anywhere ... but you can sell on Cars On Line."

Consumers in hurricane-hit parts of the country boosted U.S. light vehicle sales in September as many rushed to replace flood-damaged cars. A total of 1.5 million cars and trucks rolled off dealership lots, putting overall sales up 6 percent compared to September of last year. It was the first monthly sales gain of the year for the auto industry and, according to The New York Times, marked the highest sales rate since July 2005. The numbers have been released by WardsAuto.com. Their data center provides the most trusted numbers for new car sales.
General Motors, the nation’s largest car manufacturer, said its total sales increased 11.8 percent to 279,230 cars and trucks. Ford, the second largest U.S. automaker, also saw its sales grow. The company reported its sales rose 8.5 percent to 215,366 vehicles. Meanwhile Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) finished the month with a drop in sales, reporting its U.S. sales were down 9.8 percent to 173,071 cars and trucks.
The big Japanese automakers all posted sales gains in September. Toyota, the largest Japanese car manufacturer, said it sold 226,632 vehicles last month, a 14.9 percent jump from the same month in 2016. Meanwhile Honda’s overall sales rose 6.8 percent from September 2016 results.
So far a total of 12.8 million cars and trucks have been sold in the U.S. during 2017, a 1.9 percent decrease over last year at this time. Industry analysts predict positive sales will continue through the end of the year, but they don’t expect them to be strong enough to match last year’s record.

The DEAL of the DAY preview gives you first shot at all the cars that will be featured in the DEAL of the DAY section on the Cars On Line home page. Often these cars sell in the newsletter before they even make it to the home page! You'll always see them here first though. (Disclaimer: In every DEAL of the DAY listing, COL suggests each buyer should have the car inspected before purchase. Review the COL Inspection Service at this link.)
What synchronicity! We do an article on a rare 1963 Ford Galaxie 500 big block car above in the feature story for this week's Cars On Line.com newsletter, and what happens? Yes, we have one in our DEAL of the DAY for Saturday. Who would have "thunk" it? But here one is. Gateway Classic Cars in Chicago listed this 1963 Ford Galaxie 500XL 2-Door Hardtop, a Z Code car, with the big block 390 ci V8 motor and automatic transmission. This car is a part of Ford's muscle car era. What a great car to add to your collection. It is Rangoon red with a Sandshell beige interior. See dozens of high resolution photos. It will be our DEAL of the DAY with an asking price of $14,995.
It's true, the owner of this rare 1956 Studebaker Sky Hawk could have done a better job with his photos. I'd like to see more of the body on this car. It looks pretty good in the only photo he has, although it is parked in a garage. You should have this one inspected so you get detailed photos close up. The ad copy basically is a long list of parts he has restored or repaired. Most notably, new brakes, finned drums, new wheel cylinders, brake lines, hoses, lining, wheel bearings, grease seals done; and he says the 289 Studebaker engine has had a recent valve job. He also notes a rebuilt starter, generator and carburetor. This car is rare enough that it is worth looking into because the price is only $18,000. He doesn't give any idea of how it runs and drives. Be sure to ask.
This one deserves to be the centerpiece of a small collection, says Streetside Classics in Tampa, Florida. They listed this 1955 Ford Fairlane Crown Victoria 2-Dr Hardtop for sale this week. They describe this Crown Vic with the Y code 292 engine as being "Elegant, rare, and quite-period correct ..." The red and white theme is continued inside the car. It came standard with a Holley four-barrel carburetor to give this coupe the power to be an anywhere kind of cruiser. The V8 is mated to the optional two-speed automatic transmission, and the dual exhaust makes a nice sound as it stylishly exits through two slots in the rear bumper. It will be our DEAL of the DAY on Monday because the asking price is $23,995.
In 1953, the Riviera was a 2-door hardtop only available in the Super or Roadmaster line. It was adorned wiht lots of chrome and looked great as Buicks always did back then. This 1953 Buick Riviera comes from a private seller in Kansas City, Missouri. He says it has a straight 8 engine, 3-speed manual column shift, with 5 wide whitewall Coker tires, updated upholstery and paint, and aluminized exhaust. It would be important to have it inspected to make sure if it is a nice 10-footer or something less. Hard to tell from these photos. But is is interesting enough to make it our DEAL of the DAY next week. The asking price is only $18,000. That is below what the Old Car Price Guide says it is worth in average Class 3 condition.
A private seller from Oakland, Iowa is pretty up front about telling you that his 1937 Ford Slantback Sedan street rod is a 20-footer. He says the interior is in pretty good condition, but the paint needs some work. The 1990's paint job is cracked in spots. However this one is interesting because he says it is an all-steel survivor. According to the ad copy it has a newly rebuilt 318 ci V8 and torqueflite tranny; power steering added within the last year; power seats from a '90s Jeep, and more. He says he also has the original seats that were in it. I like to know that kind of info up front. This one is too interesting to overlook at this price. It will be our DEAL of the DAY next week. The asking price is $20,000.
A 1939 Chrylser New Yorker Coupe has been listed for sale by a private seller from Rockford, Illinois. He tells us it comes equipped with a Chrysler 360 V8, Chrysler 727 auto trans with Lokar floor shifter, custom independent front suspension using Mustang components. Front disc brakes, power rack & pinion steering. It also has a Ford 9" rear end with drum brakes and Chassis Engineering leaf spring suspension. He says, the "very nice original frame has been fully modified and upgraded. Dual Tilton master cylinders with adjustable proportioning valve. Custom Stainless Steel tig welded exhaust system. Rock Valley Stainless Steel gas tank." And there is more. I think you'll agree it should be our DEAL of the DAY later in the week. The asking price is $25,000.
1979 was the last year of production for the Volkswagen Beetle in the U.S. The Karmann bodied Beetle convertibles from that year are very collectible. So here is a 1979 VW Karmann Beetle Convertible offered for sale by a private seller in Montrose, Colorado at a very affordable price. The seller says he has all the paper on this vehicle from new. That would make it even more collectible. Really, you should check this one out. But be sure to have it inspected and appraised by our inspection service. You want to be sure about your investment. It will be our DEAL of the DAY next week. The asking price is $10,000.
