427 Powered Galaxie 500 Restomod

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 Read More
