    Iowa guys, I am trying to help my brother find a shop in central Iowa that can do work on his 64 ford galaxy. Overall it's a nice car but has a very bad rusty spots in the frame rail. He has another nice frame and would like to transfer the body. Ideally, this shop could also rebuild the suspension on the other chassis and install a built 390 FE and get the car back on the road for him.

    Post recommendations in this thread or send me a pm. Thanks guys.
     
  2. G-Force customs in Algona Iowa. They do real nice work. Call Ron at 515-341-1467, tell them Denny Wilson referred you to them.

  8. I would skip G force,,, I set them up to do rockers on my merc while I was in afghanistan..thwy were kinda late in picking it up, didnt have the equipment to load it.. when I got home on R&R I drove out to check on the work, bring some parts they had left, and gave them an advance.....got down there and walked away feeling Rons heart just wasnt in it.. DAY before I had to return to Afghan he calls and says he found a 49 in good shape and he wants me to buy that one instead of using my 50....just $6000 right. So I called the guy and couldnt come up with a price I was comfortable with sight unseen.. so then Ron calls back and says he doesnt want to do the car...so long story short- I'm out 1800 so that my car can get hauled to Iowa to get pressure washed..
