Nice looking work, but haven't you effectively reduced the cooling area by blocking off the other sections with the flat alluminum of your shroud?  Might be worth putting some louvers in the blank areas just to allow normal airflow through that portion of the radiator?  Just my thoughts, but looks like a nice setup otherwise. - Matt

Inspiring post.  I finally got my 63 home a week ago and it's sitting in front of the garage waiting for the exact same treatment.  I'm trying to document all the factory paint marks, numbers etc on the cowl and other parts before starting the refurb.  Hope it turns out as well as yours.  What type of paint did you use on the cowl and frame? - Matt

I've got the shifter, it's the clutch release lever I'm missing.  I think I might have one and if nothing else, I know my dad has one out of a 68 428CJ that I will grab.

Must of had one heck of a suspension upgrade.  Doesn't even look like it's straining under the load.

I got a great deal on a 64 Toploader and shifter for my Galaxie today.  It's missing the shifter tabs on the transmission and shift handle, but otherwise complete. Next steps are going to be a rebuild, find the correct shift handle for a 63 4spd with bench seat (correct one on the bay right now, but $450.00), buy the shifter hump, clutch release lever, clutch and pressure plate set.  Anybody know which clutch lever the 63's with the factory shorty cast iron headers took?

Thanks, I've got a few other cars as well.  I have my 70 Mustang fastback that has the engine out and at the shop right now and my 1926 Model T Ton Truck that my grandfather and I did a driver restoration on.  Also got my grandfather's mostly restored 1931 Model a SW town sedan.  Then my projects that include my 71 Comet and a 79 SWB F-150 4x4.  I'm also helping my Dad with his 1961 Sunliner.  It's in sad shape, but I was able to source a decent 61 2dr HT in NM a couple of years ago that is going to make the ultimate sacrifice to rebuild the Sunliner.  It was a 6 cyl car and nothing special.  He had a red Sunliner back when he left for the Army in 1967.  I look forward to posting pics as we work on both cars after the spring thaw here in WV. 

My dad's cousin's husband has a 1967 Galaxie 500 XL convertible, original 427 8v, 4spd car.  It's red on red with a white top.  If I can ever talk him into it, I'll get a picture of it.  It's a barn find waiting to see the light of day again.  He bought it new in 1966.  He originally ordered a 66 427 covertible, but the dealer couldn't get it, evidently because of model year change over, so they got him a new 67 instead.  He ordered it before he went into the Army.  - Matt

Hi everyone. Just wanted to introduce myself and look forward to chatting with everyone.  I've got a 1963 1/2 Galaxie 500 with original P Code 390 4v Police Interceptor engine.  It's pretty much original other than the color change for now and the fact that they had repainted the valve covers blue from their original gold.  The pictures on my webpage are from when we had just gotten it home from GA to NJ.  I've since moved home to WV and the car was sold and now back home for good again.  It originally was Rose Beige and had the large chrome ornament down the center of the hood.  Seems it had just about every option on it.  It does have the larger drum brakes all around, HD suspension with extra leafs, etc and brake lines like the 427 cars.
