    The car is set up for 1963 D/S running the 327/300Hp motor and would be right at home at the Meltdown Drags

    Thank you. Caravans are the way to go if schedules allow it.

    Love the car. I have a 67 Fairlane 289 car I recently bought & was thinking about doing this as well.
    Keep me updated.

    Congrats on the award. Goes to show that cars done right, and not over-done, are indeed worthy. I'm glad your efforts were rewarded. Well done!

    Thanks. I thought the JW Miller Ford Galaxie was one of the best cars at the event. An amazing car!

    The power brake booster and wiper motor were removed a couple of weeks ago to further the lightweight look.
