Nothing worse than guys with Cadditude...

I have a 1974 Galaxie 500 as well. It is a bit cleaner and very low mileage. Perhaps a 545 for that one...

I had the eddys in hand and was working on them however someone else needed them more than I wanted them and the scj's are better all the way around. We all know this...

With just bowl work, minor tweeks at the pushrod pinch and work on the right side short turn wall the scj heads will flow 370 cfm @ .560" lift. I am still going to stick with the goal of hitting the high 12's however the better heads will allow me to use less cam and have a more street friendly driver.

Solid EX flat tappet of about 224/236 should be fine.

Comments and thoughs are welcomed and encouraged. I will say that making heavy cars rock has always been a focus or fascination for me.

A column shifted bench seated pumpgas burning 500+ CI sleeper would kick some serious butt!!! Man wish I could find cars that clean around here, I would love to find a sportroof 74-76 Gran Torino, my first car was a standard roof Gran Torino but always loved the fast back look. When I can find clean bodies of that era the owners want $3-4000 and they have a quarter of a million miles on them which would be a very bad investment in my eyes just to get a roller.

Those are some beautiful cars. Clean is an under statement.

Clay

EDIT: That brown one reminds me of the LTD Burt Renolds had in that moonshiner movie! Now I am showing my age.
Had to go look It was White Lightning.

Very nice!! How many cars are you currently hording?!?!?!?

So sweet to see you start on the LTD!! But in some ways I'm a little sad to see it come apart, you said you had the 400 running WELL! That doesn't happen too often!

Can't wait to see what happens with this, there just aren't many guys building the fullsize cars to this level.

When done, I think it could be magazine feature material! People like dare to be different!

Cool WooHoo found an NOS battery tray...

The only unservicable part under the hood was the battery tray. Just happened to find on on ebay for what I consider a reasonable price.

Andy. Only hoarding the two full size vehicles. My driver is a 1991 LX 5.0 HO.

I dont know how I missed this thread over the past week... but as I started reading, I couldnt help but think SCJ heads... and lo and behold, I see you DID go that route!

Ive ALWAYS loved the big boats of the late 70s, as those are the cars I grew up with as a young kid... Being carted around in Torino wagons, LTDs, Mavericks etc... Both those LTDs are great! Love how the two door has such a mean look.

I still think a stroker crank of SOME kind should make its way into that build to help move the heavy beast! And a set of mickey thompson street radials on your steele wheels would be the icing on the cake

The green LTD will get the 460 and in time the rootbeer brown Galaxie 500 will get a stroker. I just happened upon another set of BB frame stantions and mounts in a box I forgot about. LOL. that makes the conversion easier.

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. Looked like the car in the movie with the CJ valve covers, 4 spd. and some cam. Would be cool make one of these like that. Regardless of head, paint it all Ford Blue with some polished CJ valve covers and factory air cleaner with a chromed lid. Bit of cam lope, rumble of dual exh. with chrome tips, a 4 spd. manual, and a set of 15" wheels with the dog dish hubcaps... Don't care what it runs at the strip, sure would be a cool car!
