1964 Ford Galaxie Drag Racing Racelegal.com 5-16-2014
Friday night drag racing at QUALCOMM this 1964 ford galaxie fairlane 500 xl
on the 1/8 mile first time out. 1964 was the fourth and final year of this
body style. Interior trim was much altered, and the exterior featured a
more sculpted look which was actually designed to make the car more
aerodynamic for NASCAR. The formal-roof "boxtop" style was replaced by a
slanted-roof design for all non-wagon or convertible models, including
sedans. Ford's quality control, spotty when the first Galaxie was
introduced, was now as good as it ever was, and many 1964 Fords passed the
100,000-mile (160,000 km) mark intact. The 1964 models gained an enviable
reputation as durable, comfortable cars that offered decent handling and
road-ability at a reasonable price, so it is no wonder they sold so well.
Of the XL models, the 1964 hardtop coupe takes the prize for the most
produced. The base 300 was replaced by a line of Custom and Custom 500
models. The 289 continued as the base V8 and was standard in the XL series.
XL models got new thin-shell bucket seats with chrome trim. They were
designed to cradle the driver better than the previous style, and Federal
regulations now required lap-style safety belts for both front outboard
Under the hood, the 427 cu in (7.0 l) engine carried on the high
performance duties. Ford again took the 427-equipped Galaxie to the
racetracks in serious fashion in 1964, building 50 lightweight
fiberglass-equipped cars just for the purpose of drag racing. These
competed with success in North America but were still too heavy and Ford
introduced the lightweight Fairlane Thunderbolt which used the 427 engine
and was immediately competitive.
Late in the year Ford introduced their new engine challenger, the SOHC 427
"Cammer". Though not documented, it is believed a few may have found their
way onto the street. This engine was only available to racers through the
dealer network or from the manufacturer; none were ever factory installed.
Rated at over 600 hp (450 kW), this is possibly the most powerful engine
ever fitted to a production car by an American manufacturer. NASCAR changed
the rules, however, requiring thousands—rather than hundreds—of
production examples in service to qualify for the next season and Ford
decided against producing the Cammer in that quantity. Fears of liability
concerns and the bad publicity possibilities in giving the public a car
that dangerously powerful are often cited as reasons, but it might simply
have been that Ford doubted that an engine so unsuited to street use could
sell in such numbers.

1969 Ford Fairlane Restoration: Lots of Body Work!
This video shows how we restored Agent 8771's old, beat-to-death 1969
Ford Fairlane coupe. The car had been hit hard in the rear many years ago,
and the frame rails were buckled. This, combined with the major structural
rust throughout, made the car virtually unrestoreable. Agent 8771 didn't
want to give up on the car however, and didn't want to just buy another
similar unit and pretend it was his old car. I decided that we could
replace the whole bottom half of the car with a solid, straight chassis
from a low-mileage 4 door sedan. When one came along at a low price, we
decided to get to work. We saved what we could from his original car,
including the seats, doors, roof, parcel shelf, hood, decklid, and glass.
We also used his old wheels, grille, bumpers, and even his old Exhaust system with the "Thrush" mufflers that
we used to put on our cars! When we were all done, it looked, sounded, and
drove like his old high school car! He even took off the power steering and
substituted his old manual box so that the car would drive just like it
used to. Overall, a really fun project and it makes a great story to tell
people you still have your first car, even if much of it has been "donated"
by another Fairlane sedan!
Anyhow, I hope you enjoy a tour of this project; let me know what you
think! Thanks for watching!
1967 Ford Fairlane GT, S Code 390 4 Speed, matching #'s, Woodward Dream Cruise 'best of show 2011
1967 Ford Fairlane GT 390 4 speed console/buckets car from the factory,
original # matching motor and trans. 5 year resto, after a few years
collecting NOS parts. ***2011 "Woodward Dream Cruise" 'best of show'
winner. Now, that's saying something..."Woodward Dream Cruise" encompasses
5 large cities, has thousands and thousands of cars, and millions of people
in attendance. It is the by far the largest car event in the world. You
really have to have something special to catch the judges eyes here !
I love Pro Street, and decided to go a Pro Street resto. ***Mike Pastomy
builds race cars for the big 3 auto companies did the Pro Street conversion
professionally. 20K later, it was time to paint. Done professionally in
Snake Skin Green, came out perfect. Kept original console and four speed
shifter, original motor (have complete build sheet for you), orig trans
rebuilt. Every nut and bolt on the car was cadmium plated, powder coated,
anodized, or chromed. The hinges and latches for trunk, doors and hood
were cadmium plated. Off the top of my head I can think of 60-70K dollars
spent, it was more than that. The car starts right up and runs cool, it
was running for the video and the pictures and while I talked to my
neighbor for a while. My dad had a car like this when I was young,... I
spent this much money and time, and had only the best people work on the
car because I was planning on keeping it for the rest of my life...but life
recently threw me a wild curve ball...

11:1 Compression...Use Premium Pump Gas !
Edelbrock Perfomer 60069 RPM Heads.

As you can see by the video, and the pics, this car is over the top, and
after winning 'Woodward Dream Cruise' 'best of show'...it now has a
pedigree ! It IS an original GT S Code 4 Speed bucket/console car as well.
This car would finish off a stock Ford collection nicely, or a 'race'
section at a museum perhaps... Definitely NO disappointments, and you can
drive it to shows, not to radical for that, if you don't mind a lot of
attention that is...
