My 63 Ford

Hi, I'm Drew.
I know a good bit about Fe's, very new to 385/lima engines.

Anyway, I'll be here asking questions/researching about these "other" big blocks. Probably be asking questions about suspension and stuff too.
Figure I'd throw up an intro post and show you my car.
car, is a 1963.5 Galaxie 500, 429cj motor, c6 etc.









since this is a ford place, my 76 F100 with a 390fe:


Anyway, reckon I'll be seeing yall around.
Later

Welcome to the forums! You have an excellent car and truck there! I am partial to the Galaxies especially the 60's. I unfortunately, have had to pass up a lot of the galaxies over the years due to non-car reasons..Maybe some day..Thanks for the pictures!

63's are such good looking cars, especially the fastbacks! I had a box top 63XL a long time ago and your pics are making me kick myself in the arse for parting with it.

Oh well, can't keep 'em all.

Looks like you have a real nice one, or two.

Welcome!

was like this when I got it.
I see crites makes engine swap mounts, headers, and all that.
The c6 trans sits further back so there are custom mounts made.
I'm at work offshore at the moment, but if you'd like I can take pictures when I get home.

Sweet car!!...my father had one it was a 390 "Z" code with a T-10 4 speed. Not an absolute powerhouse in stock form, but a very well built car from the factory.
I'll post a few pics when I get my computer fixed!!

As the world turns...I get more dizzy!
