    Hello to whoever's reading this. Having fullfilled one of my dreams owning a classic American car, I bought myself a 1962 Ford Galaxie. Not a 500, not an XL. Just a regular Galaxie, the lowest trim level. It came with a straight-6 from the factory and a manual 3-speed w/ overdrive, the...

    Are the bucket seat frames the same in a 1963 galaxie XL compared to a 1964 galaxie XL? If they are, is it possible for me to order new foam and new upholstery set for a 63 galaxie XL? Will it work on the 64 frames? Any information would be greatly appreciated, I have a 1963 1/2 Galaxie XL and...

    Hi everyone, this is my first post on this forum. I have a 1967 Ford Galaxie 500 with the 289 and 3 speed on the column. I recently tried to replace my factory fusebox with a Painless Performance fusebox, and promptly discovered that I could not make it work with the original wiring harness. I...

    I need the parking brake linkage (equalizer, adjustment rod, return spring, etc.) for my project but I can't find any replacements online or in a catalog. Do mustang parts work on galaxies? If not, let me know where I need to look. Or, if you have parts that would work for sale, please message...

    1968 XL 390 convertible. It has the C-6 automatic with a 9". It's a pretty complete car missing only a few pieces of trim. It does have some rust in the rear fenders but the floors and trunk appear to be in good shape. Most importantly, the frame appears to be nice and solid with only the...

    Hello fellow Galaxie owners. As far as I can see there are no felt beltline kits available for my 65 Galaxie 4-door sedan. Every company that claims to have them in stock finds out from the manufacturer that they have no material to make them. Autokrafters apparently makes their own but still...

    My 1965 Galaxie LTD 390 is equipped with the complete factory Ford Speed Control system and after fixing the power seats I've decided to try to get this system working while I have the engine out. I have the Ford manual illustrations and operation instructions, however, I can't find any detailed...

    My 1966 Galaxie Ltd with a 351 is in the shop for a C6 transmission rebuild. Apparently it's been rebuilt before and the previous owners took some liberties with it. The shop is in need of a new core and is having a hard time finding one. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

    Hi Ladies and Gentlemen, I'm looking for a little help on some questions about axle identification. But first a little background on the car. I bought a 1963 z code galaxie project in 2013 as a 30th birthday gift to myself. I actually went to investigate a 1961 Starliner but that proved to be a...

    Good afternoon, y’all, i recently bought a 1967 Galaxie 500 that had been sitting in North Carolina soil for 5+ years. I got all but the passenger rear drum to move properly, but that last wheel refuses to move. I’ve used the spoon tool to hit the star wheel to the point that the bottom of the...

    While my 65 LTD 390 runs and drives decent, the engine has enough blow-by and exhaust header leaks that I need to go through a usual rebuild. Being a 65, it has the MX column shift transmission (C5MP-7006-A case, tag PCE-BK matches this setup). I have two other FE pattern C6 transmission (1967...

    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...
