hi all just purchased my first galaxie i was willing to spend the money on . its a 65 2dr hardtop with a 460 conversion done and running . the door handles are shaved and the antenna has been i belive its called frenched (recessed into the body by 1 1/2 inches ) bit lowered or appears that way .
the car overall is a 10 footer paints ok some chips and bubbles the shaved handles were done most excellently my compliments to the body man that did them and the antenna but also need to complain about the lack of paper to cover the grill bumpers front and rear trim all painted owell .so to all will be posting pics for your enjoyment and input . now down to the i need parts seats front and rear kicker panels goof line on hood trim and headlight trim front grill suggestions on a fan shroud and the best tire app for this beast so it will hook up, all i can think of for now hope to post pics tommorow and yes its fast very fast

Oh panhard bar.

Ive looked for a replacment for mine too. Unless you get the "you cut ot fit" kind its pretty much hopeless. Or build your own.

You could also watch ebay for guys parting out a 65 and ask him to put one up for bid. Ive done this with some tailight housings.

the aftermarket adjustable ones sem to be the best solution besides originals works like a tie rod end adjust and lock with locking nut they have a nice look too
