It was for sale on CRAIGSLIST!!!! and this guy bought it, fresh gas and showed up at the cruise in Scottsdale, AZ off of Indian Head Rd. 1961 Ford Starliner that someone had stuffed in a 427 cammer motor. Open headers, sounds even better in person.

This is a video of my 1961 Ford Galaxie Starliner. I explain the
restoration process and modifications that we're made by Mike and Pat of
Stampede Inc of Hollywood, FL.
The engine is a 428 cubic inch FE (Ford Edsel) block. It's also outfitted
with Edelbrock aluminium heads, a Comp solid roller cam, and a dual quad
tunnel wedge intake manifold. Powerful? Yes.
