Hi I Just Found This Awesome Site, I Have A 1963 1/2 Z Code Fastback
That I Bought From Kansas 80,000 Miles ,4 Speed ,factory Air ,3.55 Gears, Rangoon Red , Just Wanted To Say Hi To Everyone And Looking Forward To Hearing From Everyone Take Care
I like the format of this site over any others Ive seen...only drawback for U.S. is the site is mostly Australian, but actually to me it makes it more interesting- lot of the same old iron with different names- and I wont point fingers but somebody's got their steering wheels on the wrong side : )
If you are not a member of the Ford Galaxie Club of America, I'd kinda suggest thinking about it- lot of info, catalogs, sources, etc for old parts...
heres a link to their 'mail list' (format I really hate, but it does get a lot of galaxie traffic)
They had a Forum kinda like this (ezboard or something like that) but it got sunk by a couple naysayers before it had a chance to take off...it is on a poor system anyway compared to this- now with popups(adware I think)...I wasted a lot of time there.
whoever put this site together really did a super job- each user can store pics here in their gallery, or link them from elsewhere, so on, etc...I look around in here a lot, just because I like the site-and its really neat to see whats going on on the far side of the world- some neat stuff. Dont know why Ford dont sell those little 'Ute' pickups over here : )
Confidence: that feeling you have just before you realize the mess you've gotten yourself into...
Yeah ive never driven in the US so i suppose i cant judge.
Also what has Ford got to match the likes of the LS7 and so forth, i hear ford has nothing? I think an aussie team should be employed to design something to rival it, seeing us Aussies design everything else good, haha.
With the pwr windows i need to open up the doors to see if theyll fit and so forth. Ill reply to your PM later.

HI, this is a very good website, nice to see some more Galaxie owners on here. They are great old cars now. Had one brand new in 63. I have owned the one I have now for just over 17 years. Needed a lot of work when I bought it, but body was all done, so did a gradual rebuild and restoration as I drove it. That way it wasn't tied up for years getting done. They are great cruisers. Mine has 390 with 4bbl (also a Z code) auto trans, pw and ps with a few extra options. Original motor was a 352 (X code) but somewhere along the line someone put in a 390. Anyway, keep those ball joints greased on these cars. I've seen those late fifties early sixties fords on the side of the road with a popped lower ball joint.
