Art & Inspiration "Just an Old Ford"

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by Jeff Norwell, Jul 2, 2011.

  1. Thanks Jeff, what an old beast. Super patina & spirit.
    I wanna vouch for these big boys with a sorted small block too. Cruise all day highway speed, smooth & silent, just the burble, cost ya next to nothin' in gas. Make mine a convertible.
  2. Thank you so much for posting this. It gave me chills and brought a tear to my eye. Great way to start the day. ;)

    I had a '63 with a 390, never should have sold that car. Bought it from an old lady for $100 and drove it home.

    Add some more compression, some more stick, and 3" exhaust to that sound and you have this- and the 4000 converter and 5.14 gears make it a little more fun- where's that frikken Subaru???
    Original paint 406-6V car with a 427 in it- nothing sounds like a good FE

    need louvers ?

    Cool Cool Cool!!! I have almost pulled the trigger on a '64 purchase twice... Well once I actually did - Just moments too late! Ask JEEM about that one! Not a 427/4 gear though, that would be too much to hope for...
  19. thanks for sharing such a cool ass video...

    Great video, sweet car. There's another cool video on Youtube of a guy driving the tires off of a '64 Galaxie at the Nurburgring in Germany. Do a search for "1964 Ford Galaxie at the Nurburgring" and you'll see a couple of different videos, all good. This guy hits about 160mph on the back stretch, and the car sounds like a complete beast. Way cool.

    I wonder what it sold for in 75-6
  27. My Merc isn't as fast as todays cars,doesn't ride as nice,doesn't get as good of gas mileage,no air conditioning,hotter than hell in the summer,but I have NEVER seen another one on the road when I'm out driving it! I Love old cars....
    My grandfather had that same car,but with a 390/4speed/duel carbs,and it ripped! I thought all cars should sound that way,so when I heard another car that purred,I would think "what's wrong with it?". My grandpa would take me for a ride and say, "grab on to something". I would put my feet against the dash and hold onto the windwing post,cause there wasn't anything else to grab. There was a street called Randolph by us that parrelled the RR tracks. He would go through all 4 gears with me yelling as loud as I could,haha! He sure was cool in that car!
