65 Galaxie 1Back on the road

This was my first Galaxie I build for a friend about 6 years ago. He drove it for awhile It had a 427 SO, then he set it up for a couple years. We pulled it out and started bring it back to live. Pulled the engine and got the engine bay ready for another engine. What we put in was 427 SOHC (Cammer) just north of 750 HP. in it. There was very little change to put it in. Modified the edge of the heater box to clear valve cover, put electric brake in, again to clear valve cover. on the core support I cut the radiator open to 32" wide, which only took about a hour and dropped in a 311/2" x 17" radiator. Rebuild the suspension and cleaned up the body.
