1967 Ford Galaxie XL, 427 R Code. Finished Photos.
Posted by Goofy62 on Sunday, March 10, 2019 1:14 PM

I managed to finish this one in just over 3 months.

Pretty good for me, but if I could go back in time, there are a few things that I would have addressed differently.

Anyway, I separated the build thread from the finished photo thread just to make things a little easier to view.

On to the pics.

Nothing short of stellar. Wish mine were half as nice.

Truly awesome job, Steve! Your detail work really brings life to this one. Thanks for bringing us along during the build. Your added detail to the seats is a plus. While your photos are great, I'm sure this is one that doesn't dissapoint in person. Thumbs Up

A fellow here in NH had a white '67 Galaxie that he fitted with a 427 SOHC with wrapped headers and a 4-speed trans.  The car looked factory with steelies and hub caps.

I'd have to say thats as close to a 1;1 as you could get with the right background it would be hard to tell that it wasn't fantastic job

That big dual quad 427 and engine bay alone warrants a trophy.

Thanks a bunch guys!

I appreciate the kind comments!

 

After seeing this thread re-emerge, I realized that I may not have posted any of the out door shots that I took some time after posting this originally.

I'm not sure if I did on another thread, but here are a few anyway.
