427 Powered Galaxie 500 Restomod

April 27th, 2022

By definition, a restomod is a vehicle that has everything it needs to look vintage and run better than new. With 635hp on tap, this 1964 Ford Galaxie 500 is that type of creation. Let’s join Shawn (of Autotopia), who is with the owner of this cream puff, and let him give us the low-down.

Subtle changes to the exterior of this car make it a one-of-a-kind treasure. The interior is more of the same. Yards of beautiful leather with minor changes that make it totally unique.

Air ride suspension on all four corners help to yield the car’s athletic stance.

Under the hood is 7.0-liters of factory propulsion designed with NASCAR racing in mind. The carbureted cast iron block and heads are fine tuned to produce 635hp – all naturally aspirated. The transmission is a Tremec 6-speed manual.

A brief test drive reveals that this old Ford is slippery smooth with a sound that tickles the ears. Lovely car from bumper-to-bumper.
