1966 Ford Galaxie 500 XL 7 Litre
Posted by mrmike on Tuesday, April 14, 2020 4:46 PM

I built this AMT '66 Galaxie about 10 years ago.  It is painted with Tamiya TS-54 Light Metallic Blue with a Semi Gloss Black interior.  Cragar SS mags, BF Goodrich White Lettered Tires, custom exhaust with aluminium exhaust tips, wired dual quad 427 SOHC engine with a 4-speed trans and a column mounted tachometer.

That's beautiful. I love that color. My 07 Focus is a similar color. What is it?

Very nicely done!

Am I off base to guess that you did something to correct the ride height?

In most instances, this kit always seems to produce finished results that sit far too low in the rear.

Thanks Lee and Steve!  Lee, the paint is Tamiya TS-54 Light Metallic Blue.  Steve, I replaced the coil springs in the rear with some that are longer that I had in my parts box.  It sure helped with that "dirty diaper" look.

Nice looking Galaxie. I'm beginning to think you like the colour blue. Looks great.

Thanks charger74 and Trevor!  Blue does happen to be one of my favorite colors.
