Strange Coincidence.......I recently purchased, and am in the process of restoring, a black 64 Galaxie with red interior. At the time of purchase the owner said the engine was a 428, but he had no way of verifying it. One of the prior owners was a Jeff Bombay from Denver Colorado. An on-line search for Bombay linked me to an article he had written for the Galaxie Club of America entitiled "Mom's Galaxie?". He describes restoring a Galaxie which I believe is now my car. It would be great to track him down and find out what is really in this vehicle. If you're interested, the article is still on the Galaxie Club's website.

Quit looking....you just found him.

I'm in Denver, that's where the Galaxie you have was built, the engine is indeed a 410 punched out to 428, can't remember what cam I put in it, but it has 4:10 gears in the differential, some head work and higher compression pistons. the transmission is a full race Cruiseomatic built by a company in Cleveland where I grew up named "Transmissions by Bruce" , this guy is/ was the best and built transmissions for everything up to funny cars.

The car is NOT the one in the article I wrote, that car was sold in Cleveland and I heard years later that it had been wrecked.

Would love to know how the car you have runs and would love to see pics of it.

My favorite story on the Galaxie site is the one "But it's my car" or something like that. I could put myself in his shoes easily! Short description. Had car in College, got married had kids sold car, went looking for another years later, found car behind/beside barn with window shot and all. It was the same car he sold years before, bought it and restored it. Now that's a love story!

As for Jeff Bombay, pretty cool you popped in here! Now if R428 shows back up again to see it!

R428 is back and thrilled at Bombay's reply! I am working my way through the car, still assessing what all needs to be done. It had been neglected and left in the elements without attention for a number of years. I would like to speak to you directly if at all possible. If you prefer to E-mail me direct you can do so at:

Thanks!
