That looks to be a great body to be starting with. The trim is also in nice shape. That trim is hard to locate, is anodized not polished, and VERY expensive. I went with the early drag car look also, and don't regret it at all. Some call my cars look outdated, but I will not change it. Most of the younger kids want to know where my rims are for the back( I run steelies). Best of luck, it will be worth it.
thanks guy's. Not bad considering it's a Minnesota car, very straight and solid. Just had the frame sandblasted and there were a couple of spots but again not as bad as the wagon, I paid my dues on that one, pulled it out of a swamp.
we are about two years a head of the wagon because of the 460 swap and less body work. I just ordered rear end parts and front suspension parts and disc brakes, Ive got the headers, radiator, fabbed up the engine and trans. I don't have a shop but a well stocked three car garage with a big old wood stove and flat screen T.V. and stereo and computer and most of the tools and toy's and a little brandy,beer and cigars. That makes for a more pleasant winter. Will keep ya posted on the progress.
Thanks for the tip. My car has all of the trim on it, but I'm always looking for a nicer piece here and there. I may just have it all redone. Saw some NOS side trim recently, both sides, for $2500. I'll leave that for the 427 resto guys. One question, are you using aftermarket disc brakes, or fitting a later model Fords to the car?.Best of luck with the Galaxie.
F570.rd Oh man! I like Joe allot but mama is WWWWWWWWWWWAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYY out there. Did she sell you any raffle tickets for the church yet. :roll: But Joe knows more about old Ford's than any one I have ever met, saved my *** quit a few times and fair with his prices. Where in Minneapolis are you at? I'm in Shoreview. give me a buzz ([email protected]) maybe we can share some things. Ben
Ya I was lucky. I was at the local slavage yard and one of the guys that I know there ask me if I knew any one who wanted a 64 Galaixe (he's a chevy guy) so I went and out an took a look at it. Finding that it was 63 xl I bought it on the spot lucky I had cash on me. He wanted a $1,000.oo but I got for $700.oo, plus he would deliver it because it was on his wrecker already. That was a good find.
ya cletus I was lucky, it is straighter that my sons (crazy88) 88 stang, not a dent, minor surface rust, will need a floor pan but no biggies. Can't wait for apx 550hp 514ci to smoke the snot of some tires and kick some Chevy ***. I have a chevy guy lined up already who thinks he going to run my wagon, Surprize! I sold him his 454, I think I can smell a side bet coming on!! :wink:
First time sex
A girl asks her boyfriend to come over Friday night to meet, and have dinner with her parents.
Since this is such a big event, the girl announces to her boyfriend that after dinner, she would like to go out and make love for the first time
The boy is ecstatic, but he has never...
Here's a few pictures of some stuff I've been getting to work on. Thankful for work and that I still get to work on things I love. Look forward to seeing some of your projects at home and work..
