Recently picked up a ‘64 Galaxie 500 Convertible. It’s a pretty clean all stock car and I’d like to keep it able to be converted back to all stock. Obviously I had to get some different wheels/tires. I couldn’t rock the 14” capped wheels...

I like the height of the back but the front needs a tweak. Thoughts?
new wheels/tires
Front - 18x8 w/ 225/45/18
Rear - 18x9.5 w/ 275/40/18

seen mentions about Astro springs, different spindles etc. I’d prefer to keep it to a simple spring swap. Any thoughts on max drop before wheel clearance becomes an issue?

Man it looks pretty good where it sits in my opinion. I have always thought that the convertibles look better if front end is up a little and hard tops look better with rear up a little. Not that both cant be hotrods, something in my mind says convert/cruiser,
Hardtop/race car.

If you just want to drop it a little to see before doing spring swap, just get some good spring clamps. Cheap, quick and easy.

Very nice ride👍
