Well it was just a year ago I started to tear the galaxie down to the frame to paint and upgrade things like brakes, bushings, ball joints, sway bars. Then i decided to build my stock sleepy 289 into a 347 with high perf. ignition, headers, exhaust, carbs, elec fan, rad, etc.

It's finally arrived, i am just hooking things up now such as linkage, generator conversion to alt., and a quick trip to the muffler shop for my x pipe and then a front end alingment. I should have it running in two weeks. I cant wait to hear it, and feel it run. It was 289, 195Hp smoky dog and now it will be around 325 HP i think. I change the reag gear to 370 and added a 2500 stall too.

I'd love to add the pictures to show you, but am not sure how, I added my pic through car domain originally.

I'll let you know!

Thanks for all your help on my questions!

Keith

I should clarify that i was referring to the front end and engine comp. and not the entire car, that was already done.

Im running 17x 8 in the rear anbd 17 x 7 in the front. 255/55. Basically corvette tires. I dont know th eback spacing it was already done when I bought it. I can tell you it takes avout a half hour to get therear tires under there and you cant get a paperplate in between the sidewall and the quarter. You have to jack the body up and not the rear end in order to get them out. The car handles incredibly though being 3 inches lower with those feet on it.

IMHO you should take beauty to Barrett Jackson in Scottsdale Arizona and tripple your asking price. I love that black beauty, I would nick name that car "FURY"
