1964 Ford Galaxie 500 Big block 390 4 speed

This is one sweet car!  I recently found this car buried n an old guys garage!  The last time It was registered and on the road was in the early 90s. 

The man I purchased the car from said that the motor was professionally rebuilt shortly before he parked it.  He also said that when he purchased the car sometime in the 1980's, he got it from Missouri.  Until it was brought here, it was a Missouri car only, explaining how rust free it is.  This Galaxie was wrecked back in the 1970s and the original owner in Missouri had the car fixed.  The title on the car reflects that, as it says rebuilt on it.  The car is nice and straight. It drives perfectly straight and feels nice and tight.  The car makes no abnormal noises, and the transmission shifts nice and crisp. 

The pictures make this car look really nice, and it is, however I want to be perfectly clear that the car needs some work. It has been sitting for a long time, so as you might expect, some of the lights don't work, a lower quarter panel patch is showing some blisters in the paint. The car needs a good tune up, etc..

The gas has been drained and refilled with fresh gas. A new fuel pump was installed, points were cleaned and adjusted, and she fired right up!!

Apparently this car used to do some racing back in the 1960's. It has a locked rear axle which is great for drag racing, but not so great for the street, but that is just my opinion. 

The interior is all original and in very good shape. It does have some small tearing on the seams of the seats.

NOTE: The wheels and tires pictured do NOT go with the sale of the car.  I will put on the original wheels and hub caps.

This car also comes with some misc parts including a perfect original hood from a 1964 Galaxie. 

Please call or email with any and all questions 630-624-4242  My name is Matt

Tanner Foust tackles 'Ring in SVT Raptor

Sat, 16 Mar 2013 13:01:00 EST

Here's a math problem: if Tanner Foust has a 24 hours to kill in Germany and one blue Ford Raptor, how long will it take him to decide he wants to lap The Nürburgring? Extra credit if you can get your answer precise to the millisecond.
A very truck-like and slidey lap of the 'Ring is exactly what happened when the Ford-sponsored rallycross driver took time off from set-up duties for his 'day job.' Thankfully no one even thought to worry about posting a time, but you can watch some Raptor skid marks getting laid down between the kerbs in the video below.

Detroit automakers mulling helping DIA avoid bankruptcy looting

Tue, 13 May 2014 18:01:00 EST

It's not really a secret that the city of Detroit is in lots and lots of trouble. Even with an emergency manager working to guide it through bankruptcy, a number of the city's institutions remain in very serious danger. One of the most notable is the Detroit Institute of Arts, a 658,000-square-foot behemoth of art that counts works from Van Gogh, Picasso, Gauguin and Rembrandt (not to mention a version of Rodin's iconic "The Thinker," shown above) as part of its permanent collection.
Throughout the bankruptcy, the DIA has been under threat, with art enthusiasts, historians and fans of the museum concerned that its expansive collection - valued between $454 and $867 million by Christie's - could be sold by the city to help square its $18.5-billion debt.
Now, though, Detroit's hometown automakers could be set to step up and help save the renowned museum. According to a report from The Detroit News, the charitable arms of General Motors, Ford and Chrysler could be set to donate $25 million as part of a DIA-initiated campaign, called the "grand bargain." As part of the deal, the DIA would seek $100 million in corporate donations as part of a larger attempt at putting together an $816-million package that would be paid to city pension funds over 20 years. Such a move would protect the city's art collection from being sold off.

Watch how a Ford Raptor rolls down the assembly line in Dearborn

Sun, 30 Mar 2014 19:19:00 EST

Bloomberg TV reporter Matt Miller is the proud new owner of a pretty killer truck. How do we know? The reporter headed to Dearborn, MI to Ford's assembly plant, with a film crew in tow, to see exactly how his new F-150 SVT Raptor and its mother-loving 6.2-liter V8 engine, was screwed together.
The resulting video does an excellent job of summing up how an assemblage of parts and pieces is turned into a triple-black Raptor, thanks to the work of some 1,000 employees and about 20 hours of real time. Click through below to see how the truck is born, with a surprise cameo playing the part of delivery driver at the end.
