Don’t Ford – get about it!


Came across this today – its a replica 64 Galaxy “lightweight”…originally they came with a 427 (actually 425 cui) with dual quads…. however this beast is a 460 stroked to 522 cui! 

Even as a lightweight they were a full chassis car..and were competitive  against the MOPAR Maxwedge lightweight drag cars.

In NASCAR..they duked it out against the Mopar Hemis…and were incredibly competitive even though they were 20 mph slower on the super speedways.  By the end of 64 the tally read like this – 26 Victories to Mopar, 20 to Ford, Mercury scored a few late in the season…and Chev a lowly 1 win in  round 3.

Its great to see such a tribute done so well to a legendary racer! 

Its not often I ask to take pics of someones car…but this thing was simply stunning…a surely hauls the mail!
