1961 Ford Galaxie Starliner 428 cu-in Dual-Quad 4-Speed
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.
Muscle Car Of The Week Video #7: 1966 Galaxie 500 XL R-Code 427

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!
