    Spooky, I can't agree more. Galaxies are a real nice looking car, with a ton of style, and I am pretty sure, a 427 Ford, will hurt a 409 Chevy's feelings,
    I destroyed a 62 SS with a 409, in a non sanchioned contest, but a Cammer was a bit of an advantage!
    He didn;t ask, so why offer info?

    Roy, that's great! A big pretty 409, that looks killer, getting a tune up, from a little 289!
    haha

    True but I think the point was that it looks like it'd be pretty straightforward to duplicate it on a kit chassis.

    Obviously you'd want to pick one of a decent mechanical spec, picking some pseudo-Cobra with a stick rear axle hardly makes sense.

    That is a great video, and story. I had to watch it a few times. I sure do like that stock flat hood, and it is making me reconsider the intake for the Cammer. I like that car!

    I just read this whole thread and I am very happy to see that there are so many fellow Galaxie owners on the board. Thanks for all of inspiration to get my 62 back on the road.

    Eric;he was running that 65 through an exhaust system that sounded WICKED!!! I forget the name of that track,it was out in the boonies in PA,1/8th mile with a short shut down with a stream at the end!!! I was supposed to run my car but could not find anyone to trailer it out for me,OH WELL!! ROY.

    Where did Tobacco King go after the Reynolds heirs sold it ? Is it in a collection on display somewhere ?
    I'd love to plan a trip to see it someday.

    Since there seems to be a '64 Galaxie theme rolling here right now, here are a few recent shots of my car. P-code - 4 speed. I've had it since 1985. First car I ever took out a loan for....
