Some old Ford

Stole this off the GJ very cool.
There is a very fine line between a hobby and a mental illness.

Does the need justify the want ? Or does the want suffice?

Elroy will lay you a bet right now that 4,000 pound, 425 horsepower boat would suck the head lights right out of a turbo Subaru in a 50 MPH kick down to 100.  Bslap

That's a "real car"

I met Elroy years ago, I was not at all impressed with him, the guy was like a talking potted plant! A real Moron.

I'd go into debt to lay hands on a Galaxie like that.  Cousin had one, 1964-1/2, Galaxie 500 hardtop.  427 with single 4 barrel, and a factory, all synchro 3-spd on the column, and the books say it wasn't even available.  This was in the late 60s, and he won about every race that he put money on.  Was with him when a red GTX pulled along side, at 70, and the look on that Mopar guys face when that old Galaxie was still along side of him at 125mph.   Couldn't go any further, we were coming into town, but word was it was seen pushing 150 a few times.  Then he got married, the car went away, and as so many things, its just a memory.

The only thing that would make that Ford cooler was being a factory light weight.

Just the drive line from that old beast would nearly buy a new car.

Good sticky. Hope it stays around

Someone has either redone the brake system and checked the ball joints etc very well or the guy is crazy to trust that car with any speed. 64 was a good year for ford and thy made plenty of the galaxies. If the FE engine is correct for the car it is worth a restoration or some dreamers will buy it as is.
