Re: What did you do with your GALAXIE today?
I drove my 67 convertible Galaxie to the grocery store, as I always do.
427 Shelby aluminum block, Bear Motors heads (both a minimum requirement for grocery runs), Scat crank and rods, stroked to 482ci, all cast iron removed from the front of the car, aluminum and steel, C6 with 5 and 6 plates (instead of 3x3 or 4x4), 1/2" wider bands, Gear Vendors gear splitter for a 6 speed (4 really), routine stuff like methanol injection, control of timing with a knob on the dash, transmission cooler, modern disc brakes on the front, etc. Can't improve on the late 60's Galaxie front or rear end.
Over 300,000 miles in 427 Medium Riser 7-Liter Galaxies, usually the two four barrel Medium Riser setup with the Cobrajet crank and racing gas in a separate fuel system. Oh yeah I do. Why on earth would I drive anything else to Publix or anywhere else?
