Well the title says it all but here is some background... I bought a '53 ford mainline coupe I have some pics of in my profile. I spun a bearing in the original flatty and it has been down for two years while my cousin who runs a shop has shaved everything and rounded the hood corners and frenched the lights, frenched in olds taillights, and lowered 3inches front,3 rear and put skirts on. I have a flathead with only 23k original miles on it and a 3 speed overdrive to go in it. I also happen to have a soft spot for galaxies. They look good every style but I especially love early lowrider/mild custom ones lowered over astro supremes and 1inch whitewalls. I have a 2 year old girl and a boy due in july, and me and my wife are in the process of buyibg our first house so money is tight and so havibg a driver with a more modern drivetrain would be great to have versus a not done project mild custom. My cousin loves the '53 and has said he would be willing to find and trade a 62-64 two door galaxie in driving condition for it. I'm very torn because I love shoebox fords as customs and I love evrything about flatheads, but galaxies have been a dream car since a child. So gimme your two cents and tell me if I'm crazy for considering it or if its a good comprimise.
