    While doing the normal detective work on my 65 Galaxie LTD, I found the long build sheet in the usual spot under the driver side front bench seat under the springs. It was pretty far gone and doesn't offer much readable information. However, Behind the rear seat spring, tucked right in the...

    I've got a 1963 Galaxie 500 with a 9 inch rear end, and I'd like to do a refresh rather than a complete rebuild. A couple of questions: What seals and bearings, etc. do I need to replace? What should I look for wear and tear wise to make sure it's still in good shape? I have a spare, so if I...

    I am in the process of troubleshooting a 1965 XL Galaxie's power window switches on console. Driver's side works all the time. Passenger side switch only wants to go up. The 2 rear windows switches were not connected from console but buttons work from rear seats so ok there. I moved the...

    I've been picking up parts for my 1961 Sunliner projects for awhile but I've found it hard to find 1961 interior parts despite the commonality with 1960-1962 in so many ways. Does anyone know where to pick up upholstery and other interior detail/soft parts for 1961? The only place I've found...

    Hi all, recently I'm trying to repair my drivetrain. Unfortunately I had to discover that my yoke is in pretty bad shape (imho). The black spots are little dents with around 1/16" diameter. I really would like to replace it, but I can't find the exact same yoke in the www, although I...

    This one was a fun restoration because of its crazy graphics. It to we used the original to the car interior and glass. This particular customer always prefers it that way. It has its original aluminum cased 4spd

    Here is a 64 lightweight we restored a couple years ago. It was traded in part by my customer, to Dana Mecum for a cobra. I believe Dana has sold it and would like to keep track of the car if anyone knows the new owner of it. It was a factory automatic car which was missing its transmission...

    I have a 68 Galaxie with a 302 that I'm putting a 351m with a c6 into it. What are some possible performance upgrades for both? I know the cheaper route so far is the valve train, intake, and upgrading to a 4 barrel. As far as the transmission goes I have no idea and for aspiration, turbo v...

    I Have a 63 Galaxie 500 with a 352 in it. Doesn’t seem like it’s ever been rebuilt but I just want to run the right oil in it. Currently run Mobile 1 10w-30 with a Rislone Zinc additive but I heard there are some better oils to run for and old engine. Any suggestions would be appreciated..

    I have a 1963 Ford Galaxie 500 with drums all around. Has a new master cylinder but after a 10-15 mile drive the front and rear brakes stick on. Jacked it up and can’t spin fronts at all until opening a bleeder than they will free spin. Thinking maybe master cylinder push rod length out of...

    I have a 65 Canadian 390 so it has a oil breather tube and road draft tube. I changed the oil yesterday and noticed bright green coolant in the oil breather tube. I have included a photo of it. Not sure how it's getting up there as it seems to be above where the tube goes into the manifold. I am...

    Have a 390 Fe Motor with a road draft tube (no PCV). When I bought the car, it ran great. No smoke. I took it in to a shop for oil change and to have some of the leaks fixed. Got it back after oil changed to synthetic with oil stabilizer and the valve cover gaskets replaced. Once it warmed up...

    I picked up a 1961 sunliner today and am currently going over the work the car will need. It seems that every panel on the car has some amount of rust and I am not sure where to get some of the sheet metal needed for the repairs without making them myself. It seems the front fenders have rust up...

    I recently purchased a '66 7 liter and have a question about the disc brakes. Does anyone know how to located a set of front disc break hub assemblies? Is it possible to use a hub/rotor/caliper assembly off of a different year/car?
