1963 Ford Galaxie 427 Group N Historic Touring Car Chasing Falcon GTHO
Group N Historic Touring Cars at Eastern Creek in Nov 2011. Driver is Marc
Ducquet who is chasing down Mick Kennedy in the red XW Falcon GTHO that is
straight ahead on the starting grid. Race was eventually red flagged due to
the amount of cars that had gone off the track and also a major crash at
1967 USA Ford LTD Galaxie Fastback Coupe 390 Big Block V8 -- 3-Speed Auto
This Coupe is an extremely unique example of a classic USA Ford Galaxie
Fastback Coupe, with all the LTD additions. Then the killer combination of
Black duco and Black interior -- Black on Black, now throw in a mean set of
The Galaxie has been slightly lowered to fit perfectly on her 20" rims. The
ride height is in just right with a tough stance. She drives true and
straight down the road and around bends without any rubbing. Some of the
most recent improvements include; Complete interior redone, New 20" rims &
tires (less than a year old), New Pencil Tip chrome Exhaust tips, New vinyl top (less than a year
old), Motor: rebuilt in 2005 all moving parts refurbished, New gas tank and
Interior: As mentioned recently replaced, the seats are in great nic, as
are all the door skins and handles. The headliner looks in good condition
and the dash looks nearly immaculate with one crack (in well of speedo).
The weather stripping and window felts are showing signs of wear around the
place. The carpet is also in good shape without ware or stains.
Body: The door panels are straight and fit as the originals would. The
paint is fair I have to say and give it around 7 out of 10 (no bog, just
old enamel straight out the gun). All the chrome and bright work is in
tack, some of the trim has a few dents and imperfections when looking hard.
The bumpers are in near flawless condition, but have lost a bit of the
bling. Rust; all of the common places appear to be rust free and all the
floors look nice and solid. With all the original sheetmetal still in place
no patches to be seen.
Other Bits: The 3-Speed Auto shifts without noise or issue and the kick
back seems to work fine. The brakes on this thing would put most modern
cars to shame, with a nice big Booster under the hood. The Galaxie stops a
treat and has a very firm pedal. The power steering works a treat without
any signs of any leaks or wear. This vehicle drivers very well for a Muscle
Car Classic .
Condition: Vehicle is in great condition for its nearly 47 years on this
planet, however is sold in, as is condition. With no warranty given or
implied. She's a beautiful car and although not a show car, I believe with
a little work she could compete with the best. The only discrepancies are;
factory radio & speakers have been removed, the blower and windscreen
whippers don't work.
Fine Print: More than happy to answer any genuine questions about the car,
just send an message anytime and I'll pass on my contact details. Locally
for Sale can be removed at any time. Any Inspections of Vehicle welcomed at
your cost, my convenience. Test drives are "Out of the Question" without
firm deposit. Vehicle is sitting in my garage and have only been driven
around the Adelaide streets on day permit. Currently Shannon's insured.
Vehicle Never been rego'ed in Oz.

payment CASH or Bank Cheque or arranged Internet Transfer with conditions.

Muscle Car Of The Week Video #7: 1966 Galaxie 500 XL R-Code 427
Become a Facebook Fan!
The Muscle Car Of The Week is this stunning 1966 Ford Galaxie 500 XL that
becomes more interesting the more you look. You will first notice the
subdued color called Coventry Gray, and it was never offered on the Ford
Galaxie for 1966. It is a specially ordered Mercury color, making this the
only one ever built! And while they made many Galaxie 500 XL models, there
were less than 50 that came with the R-Code 427 V8 under the hood. Boasting
425 hp, the R-Code 427 breathed through dual four barrel carburetors and
churned a four speed manual transmission. This might not look like a race
car, but it seemed to be built for the dragstrip. We love the juxtaposition
of luxury and power, making this a wolf in banker's clothing!
Budget Built Turbo Maverick Sleeper GoPro
Josh Dillon's turbo big block Maverick
making a pass at Brainerd Optimist Drag Strip in Ringgold, Georgia. Car has
a 460ci big block Ford with stock crank, H beam rods, forged pistons, stock
head castings and valve size, blow through carb, Borg Warner S475 turbo. This pass is on 18 pounds on 93 octane pump
gas with a safe tune. Track conditions were poor as you can tell by the
squirrelly ride. I think this pass was a 7.0X at around 100 miles per hour.
Other details about the car: C6 transmission, Dacco torque converter (way
too loose), 3.00 gear, stock 8 inch rear end, stock axles, mini spool,
26x8.5-15 tires, original leaf springs, stock shocks, slapper bars.
Desert Proofing the Ford Raptor! - Dirt Every Day Episode 2
On this episode of Dirt Every Day, Fred Williams up fits and outfits one of
the coolest 4x4's on the market today, the Ford Raptor. Raptors are high
performance desert machines, but we found one that earns it's owner a
living each week banging around on an obscure desert compound. The owner
is hard on his equipment and we took this poor bird of prey under our wing
for a week to transform it into a more vicious desert predator.
Dirt Every Day appears every other Thursday on the Motor Trend channel.
