It looks like a "Toe-in Stabilizer Bar". That's a bracket that keeps the "Easy Rider" Offset Shafts on the Front of the Lower A Arms of the 1964 Ford Galaxie from working.

Is it factory?
No.

If not who made it?
It looks as though it's a Greg Donahue item. Google: "Greg Donahue", then do a search for: "Toe-in Stabilizer Bar".

Nice looking Galaxie there Jake!

I have been using this item on my 63 since 1985. One of the best cheap upgrades you will ever do. The car handles much better.

It's the quick-n-dirty fix for Ford's lousy front LCA pivots.

I think Donahue claims their part is a repro of something that was issued to Ford dealers as a fix back in the '60s, so the origins aren't certain.

Regardless, unless you're planning on doing far more extensive renovations to the suspension that involve getting rid of the crankshafts in the front LCA pivots completely, you'll want to hang on to it.

thanks for your help and thanks for the comments..

Nothing extensive will be done to the suspension just the larger front sway bar and adding a sway bar to the rear..
