your going to have to come down out of cold snowy slow montana and race down here in SLC UT. at rocky mountain raceway...
As one 67 Galaxie owner to another it would be a blast to run side by side..
my 67 is a rusted out gutted shell with 460, 4spd, and a predator carb.
But it's plenty fun! especially on friday midnight drags starting this May..
Shows the import kiddie cars a thing or two.
If I may let me make a suggestion that helps immensely with frame stiffness and launch. I took the body off the car, removed the rubber body bushings and replaced them with steel spacers 1 inch thick.
I re-made all new body mount studs out of 3/8 rod and added mounting studs.
the car comes factory with 10 bolt down spots. 2 at the front clip, 4 at the firewall, 2 under the back seat and 2 at the end of the trunk.
If you look, you will see mount points at the floor down by the high beam switch, middle of the door sill top of the trunk ledge and middle of the trunk floor. put spacers and studs in those locations and bolt the body down hard to the frame..
Last thing I did was take the rear trailing arms out and burned the bushings out and replaced them with delrin plastic inserts.
I haven't found anyone that makes polyeuro. bushings for them so I made my own again. also I took the panhard (track rod) out and re fab'd it out of tube with large spherical joints that were adjustable for length.
I realigned the rear axle to be perfectly centered with the frame, axle flange to side of frame rail distance.
and then had the front end realigned to the new rear end alignment.
Made a HUGE difference in straight line launches..
Hope that help you a bit..
I'll try to post a pic or two of my Blue Racer.
