  1. This is my newest toy......a '63 Galaxie 500 2dr post. It has a 420 hp 390, built C6, 389 gears. Bench seat, all original dash (with a couple extra gauges under the dash), altogether a very nice, very stout Ford. :D

  6. I know the man that built the car, have known him for over 40 years. I've known this car for over 10 years. I'm embarrassed to say that I can't remember the cam specs, but the 390 is .040 over, 10:1 compression, with extensive machine work done to the heads. I just got it yesterday. the whole deal went down in a hurry. I was surprised it was offered to me, and jumped at the chance. I'll get all the pertinent info as soon as the weekend is over. I know this car, have ridden in it many times, and it's a beast. I'm happy I got the chance to own it, and the details, in my case were secondary to all the first-hand knowledge I have of how the car runs. :)
