2nd Rock hunting partner Galaixe 500
« on: November 08, 2019, 09:29:35 PM »

Never wrenched on 1965 Ford Galaixe. 289 Ci. 3 speed.  Now the GT-390 has a home.

The Ranchero was a-bit bleep-en rusted beyond, And it was to small for 14-Ds to drive.

Felt like i was in my old Mach-1...them old days i was 200 Lbs. now a few more Oz. added.

twice in 3 weeks to find two cars in this condition.

C-6 trans. friend well trade for Borg Warner T-10.  ( the 289 motor on 3 Speed / both are 1965 ) both matching numbers.

It will run stronger if you take the cloth out of the air intake.  Have fun with the beast.

 Cool. I have an affection for the old fords. In my young days I had a 1959 with a 1965 352 police interceptor
Engine in it. It was pretty fast for it day.
