That is beautiful! Having white interior is even better, they seem to always have black or red! Perty legs too.

Re: My 64 galaxie fastback

Awesome galaxie, what are the specs on the welds? We just bought a 64 yesterday and took the welds off our mustang to get it home. They are 15x3 1/2 on the front and 15x8 with 275/60/15 on the rear. The rears are pretty tight to the springs but they look good.

Re: My 64 galaxie fastback

Thanks for all of the great commets.
One of the things I need to change is the radiator.
Is anyone running the Crites alloy radiator with a 460.

Mike I havent done much to her lately as ive been flat out at work.

Re: My 64 galaxie fastback

Very nice looking ride!

You may want to refer to the 64 Galaxie Build-up thread as there was some talk there about using the Crites radiator with a high HP 385 series engine. Seems thats not the best choice for that application, of course it may well depend on how much HP your 460 is pumping out.

Re: My 64 galaxie fastback

Glad to see you finally made it on Rich B. (have another Rich so thought I'd add the B. part.). NowI see what brought you out of the wood work. Another black '64! Yours is real nice also!

Must be nice to park the car in the kitchen. LOL That's what it makes me think of.
