The engine is a stroked, cross bolt 427 c.i.d. Ford, for a total of 454 cubic inches. Cobra Jet rods and heads are used with Arias pistons; solid cam and Shelby Dominator aluminum intake.

Front is all glass including the bumper with Alston back half w/ full 12 point roll cage; nine inch Ford rear w/ 4.56 gears and Strange 31 spline axles. It is street driven and is not a trailer queen. I love this car!

|Chris from down the road from me in Pottstown, PA is the proud owner of this fine 352 powered '65 Galaxie 500.
He is in the process of building a 428 SCJ for it, but just for fun he is leaving the 352 badges on the car. I'd hate to be the poor misguided individual that wants to race him thinking it's a 352. LOL!

|Connie and Woods Allen of Jacksonville, FL are the proud owners of this fine '64 Galaxie.
The Gal has a .030" over 390 and four speed. An original "P" Code with the beefy parts that came with them makes adding additional performance easy to absorb.
|Mike Radke's 1966 Galaxie 500 Convertible with less than 70,000 miles.
The body is rust free, including the trunk, rocker panels, floor and other problem areas. The interior is in excellent condition considering it's age. It has a very stock 352 under the hood and a cruisomatic transmission. It also came from the factory with dual exhaust although Mike's (late) father-in-law changed out the original style mufflers for a pair of glass packs.
|Mac McWilliams awesome 1967 Galaxie 500 is powered by a new Genesis 427.
The burnout is at Atco Raceway in NJ. He has promised more updates to come
|Garry and Molly Catalano are the proud owners of this 1963 Galaxie 500.
Power comes from a 427 low rizer dual quad motor. Tranny has been changed to an early big in, big out top loader with a Hurst shifter to improve the occasional red light runs. The car is equiped with early style traction bars and goes straight as an arrow. Exhaust is 2 1/2" with glass packs. The interior is red and white which really sets this car off against the black exterior. Be sure to check out their truck on the "TRUCKS" page.

|Bill Haegele is very proud of his 1964 Ford Galaxie 500 Convertible powered by a 390 V-8.
The long block was remanufactured by S&S Auto Engine Remanufactures of Spokane, WA. Carburetor is a 625 cfm Road Demon on an aluminum Offenhauser single-plane intake manifold. All safety equipment has been replaced with new parts. The trunk pan has been replaced. The floor pan was repaired, coated with POR-15 and covered with a layer of sound deadening / insulation material before being recarpeted. The body was repainted 2005 Ford Vermillion Red and all bodywork and paint prep was done by Bill. The interior has been reupholstered in reproduction stock upholstery from Dearborn Classics. The convertible top has also been replaced along with a new rear window. Sometime in the future the radio and speaker will be replaced (not that you could hear it over the dual Flowmasters when the top is down).
