1966 Ford Galaxie 7 litre convertible

Question:
I am restoring my trunk. On the inside of the trunk deck are 3 holes about 2 inch in diameter. Are these to be open or does a rubber plug belong in them? I think they should be open to let the air flow between to keep out rust and condensation.

Response(s)
My '63 had a plug in it when I bought it. I think thats the way it's supposed to be. It's just incase you spill something, you can spray it out. Remember the scene in Goodfellas where Henry Hill is spraying his trunk with a hose? That's because he had a plug that drains the water out. Can't put a body in your trunk if you don't have a plug.

1966 Ford Galaxie 500

Question:
I have a 1962 406 fe motor, how would this fit in a 1966 Ford Galaxie? There is a 2 bolt motor mount on the 406, but the 1966 uses a 3 bolt motor mount this will not line up with the stock base mount. How does one make this work? Note I tried calling around with no luck.

Response(s)
If I remember right from my Steve Christ book, the third hole was added, but the other two holes were left in the original locations so a newer engine could be installed in the older cars. In your case, 2 of the holes on the 66 mount should line up. Good luck.

That 406 will fit correctly if you use the 1962 engine mounts. There should be enough clearance be tween the oil pan and the frame cross member to shove four finger and your hand through. I had the experience with a 68 390 that someone put in a 64 Galaxie with using the 65-68 engine mounts.

1964 Ford Galaxie 500 Fastback

Question:
I just picked up a '64 Galaxie 500 Fastback for restoration. It originally came with a 390 but someone put a 352 in it now. The 352 runs but I am looking for a 390 to put back in it. Anyone know of one for sale?

Response(s)
If I was you, I would punch out the 352 to a 390. I've done some reading on it and its the same block. I've read that you bore it .50 over. Also they say the heads are vary similar to cobra heads. So dish them out and you'll have one hell of a engine.

The only difference between a 352 and a 390 is the crankshaft.

Galaxie

Question:
Is there such thing as a "1963" Galaxie and if so what are the differences from a 1963 1/2. Thanks

Response(s)
Yes, there is a 1963 Galaxie...they also made a 63 & 1/2 Galaxie, which all they did was make the roof line of the 63 convertible from metal and added it to give the roof the same lines as the convertible, to make it sleek and fast on the Nascar track. A 63 Galaxie has what is called a NOTCH BACK rook it is square and drops off right atthe rear window. Only year that they made a 1/2 year. If you look at a 64 Galaxie, it is the same roof lines as a 63 & 1/2 Galaxie.

67 Ford Galaxie 500

Question:
I have a 67 Ford Galaxie 500 the gas gauge on the dashbord does not work. How do I find the wire, or fix this problem? Benjamin D Wilmes

Response(s)
I just picked up a 67 galxie convertible and the wire on mine is black with a green stripe. This comes from the sending unit. There is also a yellow wire that is connected this I believe is the power. Good chance your sending might be bad. Not sure if it helps at all

Test the output of the sending unit before you just replace it. On my 68 LTD, the gas gauge did not work because the "radio noise suppressor choke" went bad. Replaced it and it worked.

65 Galaxie 500 Conv

Question:
Please help....looking to buy a '65 500 Conv confused by Door Tag
BODY COLOR TRIM DATE DSO AXLE TRANS
76A YY 645 12M 53 1 6
Can you please decipher for me! (especially colour and Trim) I was told car came from Arizona! Thanks very much. Larry

Response(s)
Larry, It looks like the door may have been replaced at some point and the tag not transferred from the original door to the replacement door on this car. The Body code of 76A is for a Country Squire wagon. The double letter color code is for a two-tone car not this wagon would have been all silver blue, but a convertible would just have one letter code as there's no upper body to color on a convertible. Ed

Thanks but something still doesn't add up here! Vin # on same Door Tag is as follows....... 5G65Z14XXXX Does this not translate to 5-65 ... G-Chicago ... 65-500 Conv ... Z-390 4B Another site I found indicated that 76A is for Conv not wagon YY is Med Blue Colour with second colour indicating top colour Still can't figure out what 645 Trim is??? Sorry for all this confusion but want to be sure BEFORE I buy! Thanks again

1964 Ford Galaxie 500

Question:
Bought a really nice 1964 Galaxie. However no keys. I want to try an avoid taking out the ignition switch. I read somewhere that here is a Key Code somewhere on the car that I could give to the locksmith so he could cut me a key. Is this true? If so where is the number and what should it look like? I did look up under the dash at the Ignition Switch. There is a number on there, is that the key code? Thanks so much

Response(s)
I took the door lock out and took it to a locksmith, he was able to cut a key for me. Also the ignition can be removed it has a spring load and notch , you just got to get your head up under the dash and pus and turn the whole assy where the wire are then will it come out.

i lost my keys to my 63 galaxie. a mobile locksmith came out and cut a key without taking out the switch by inserting a key blank and filing the blank down where the pins touched the blank until it fit. Super simple, took about 45 minutes and cost $80. He said the door keys could be replaced by removing a spring clip on the side of the door which holds the tumbler in place and bringing the tumbler to a locksmith. I think he said trunk was the same but i had a separate key for the trunk.

Ford Galaxie 500

Question:
I need to know if a 1968 Galaxie 500 needs premium gas. It is a original 390 v8, stock.

Response(s)
I have 2 68 LTDs with different 390 options. The 2V version has never offered to ping on 87 (as long as it had water in it but that's a different story). The 4V version has 10.5 to 1 compression and back when I drove it a lot, it didn't matter if I had 87 or 93 in it. It seemed to ping the same amount all the time on either. Toughest engine I've ever seen. I finally stopped (reduced) it with one of the old Edelbrock water injection systems. I had a small light added to the wire so I could see when the pump came on. It would start going up a steep hill and just start pinging a little and when the pump came on it quit. The water injection systems seem to be a lot more expensive now, but it works. I think there may have been a 2V premium option, but I don't know first hand on those. If you don't hear it, you are probably ok.

I have a '67 Galaxie 500 convertible, which I've had for 25 years.The body, mechanics, and other components have been replaced or restored. However, I was driving it and heard a loud bang....the frame cracked. Upon close inspection, the frame is full of rust and I'm told cannot be welded for repair...it's too far gone.

How do you bleed the air out of the power top system on a 69 Galaxie 500

Response(s)
I have a 1964 Galaxie and it is my understanding they used the same pump until sometime in the 70s. If that's true and your pump is the same as mine my book says to crack open the filler port screw and operate the pump until the air is gone. Worked on mine.

Galaxie 500

Question:
My 1965 Ford Galaxie 500 with 352 starts up and idles fine. When I put it in gear and give it throttle it dies out. Also I have a lot o white smoke that comes out of the exhaust. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Response(s)
If you are spouting white smoke, then you have either a cracked head (unlikely) or a bad head or intake gasket. You are burning anti-freeze. It may idle fine without a load on the engine. Then you place it in drive and the load boosts pressure on the internal drive train and poof....presses water into your combustion chambers. Check your oil for milkiness and water too..

my 63 with a 390 had white smoke coming out the exhaust it had a cracked #8 cylinder due to no wrist pin keeper keeping the pin in. check your compresson on all cylinders. Tom-Ala

Response(s)
the 390 heads will work on your 352 block but will not add more power unfortunately, the best power adder for the fe engine is easily hi-rise alum. intake, 4 barrel carb. and headers if you can afford them (almost $400 for the pair) air flow restriction and exhaust restriction kill hp on these engines

Response(s)
replace the ignition switch. good luck

Ignitions are not my thing, but wouldn't a bad ballast resitor cause this to happen. In the start position, the ballast is bypassed to allow full 12V to the coil to help in starting. When the switch is released to run, it has to go through the ballast resitor. Test the power in the run position before and after the resistor.

Why is it I can't find a front brake conversion kit for a 1972 Galaxie? Every kit i do find stops at 1966. What's up with that?

Response(s)
There are some out there for older Galaxies that fit, but they just don't call out 72 because it is not a common fix-up. Also some 67s had discs and most 68s and newer had discs. The easiest way to do it is get spindles from the same year LTD out of a parts car. Grab the booster, master cyl and prop valve just to make sure they are correct. From then on, when you need a part you just tell them it is for a 72 LTD with disc brakes.

Response(s)
make sure the leg as you call it is posistioned under the lobe. You might feel some resistance but its because youre pushing down on the leg when you put it in. Check the feul pump by pushing down on the leg with the pump stabilized. you should feel and hear a sucking noise when you do this. If there is no resistance the pump is bad. good luck!!!!

You might verify that the intet and outlet are not swapped.

The hood will not close properly, in the back the hood is 1 and1/2 inches above the fender over the hinge area and in the front it is 1/2 an inch lower than the top of the fender. How can I adjust the hinges to have the hood be level. The hinges are already as low as the slots for adjustment will allow them to go. Do I need all new hinges or can it be fixed?

The car starts easy on the other three cylinders, doesn't put any smoke or steam out the tailpipe. The cylinder compression runs 95 psi in the three cylinders that doesn't hit.

How do you remove the ign switch from a 61 Galaxie?

Response(s)
i changed my ignition switch out a few months ago on my 1961 ford fairlane. to remove the complete switch, reach up under the dash and press the switch in toward the back side of the dash, the switch is spring loaded. as you hold pressure on the switch with one hand take your other hand and turn the chrome ignition switch bezel one quarter turn couter clock wise i think, it may be clock wise.the switch should seperate from the bezel. to remove the key cylinder from the ignition switch, insert the ignition key into the switch and turn the key to accessories. insert a paper clip into the small round hole right below the key and press in on the paper clip while pulling out on the key. the key cylinder should seperate from the rest of the ignition switch.

Your standard FE 390/428 heads have smaller ports than the FE 428CJ heads. It will work but there will be a port mis match. A better solution would be to also mount a set of C8OE-N CJ heads along with the intake AND exhaust manifolds.

Response(s)
They will work well. The ball joints are the same. The tie rod ends are different, but you should be able to determine for sure which one you need after the spindles are installed. You will need 15" rims to clear the calipers.

I think you will find that the 70 LTD tie rod ends WILL work. I used them when I did my conversion.

depends on how much you want to pay and why you are doing it, buying already done is cheaper but no sentimental value ... I am doing a convert now for my dad as a gift..

Response(s)
I'm restoring one myself right now. I have been able to find almost all the parts. You need to order ahead on some things, but you can find almost all the parts. Some trim pieces are harder to find than others. Let me know if you have any questions, but I would start at autokrafters.com, dearbornclassics.com, newenglandmustang (ebay store) for the correct door panels for front and rear, galaxieperformance (ebay store) for the hard to find trim pieces (he has the NOS - new old stock, originals, which are extremely expensive, but hey, they are originals!) And macsautoparts.com and www.concoursparts.com. You should find a bunch of parts for the 66 Galaxie 500. I have some parts I'm not using myself as well. Hope that helps, Thomas O.

I'm helping a friend restore to showroom quality 1961 Ford Sunliner. Can you direct me to company/companies that have original replacement parts?

Response(s)
Showroom trim parts - only one place I know where to go (galaxieperformance) - ebay store, it is a guy that you can call in michigan, he has a huge warehouse of parts that aren't included on his ebay store. His number is always in his listings. He is only there from like 8:00 - 2:00 pm Michigan time. When you call he simply answers "Shop" and you tell him your name and ask him if he has _____ pieces in NOS condition. He usually does since he bought an old ford warehouse. You pay a hefty price for showroom condition pieces, but he should have them. Thomas O.

Dennis Carpenter has some NOS parts, but makes a lot of parts for all kinds of Fords. Some of it is with original Ford tooling. I have also gotten parts from AutoKrafters in his packaging. Good stuff.

I have a 1965 Ford Country Sedan station wagon with the original drum brake system. I was wondering how someone would go about converting this car to both front and rear disc brakes using later model Ford parts with the least amount of modification possible? I am not interested in a kit. Thanks!

Question:
Will tail light lenses from a 68 Galaxie fit a 67?

Response(s)
I haven't tried this, but I am certain that I have seen 2 68's with 67 tail lights. I like the 67 look and know where more are than 68s.

I just recently got to look at both years side by side and I don't see how they could fit. The bumper is different, the housings are different and the quarter panel ends on a slope on the 67 and is straight vertical on the 68. I must have seen a 67 with a 68 front end or Ford made some mid year changes or something. Sorry about bad info before.

noway not without alot of cutting

no wrong size and shap

I have ? 67's. One is an XL an the other is a parts car. I do have one extra set of complete tail lights. direct original bolt in to rear fenders. My parts car isn't here yet . Are you in need of some?

66 Ford Galaxie 500 Convertible

Question:
I have a 66 Ford Galaxie and I am trying to redo the chrome letters on the trunk, hood and 2 back side panels. They are pot metal. I have taken them to multiple chrome plating shops that either say they can't do them or it will be $40 a piece (times 24 peices). Any thoughts? Also, I have looked at all the magazines that I can find and no one carries the NOS letters for a 66 (dearborne, macs, etc). They skip that year, 64, 65 then 67. Any one know why? And could I use another years, are they the same? I am looking for any help.

Response(s)
I used this company several years ago to do the cast rear quarter window trim on my 68 LTD along with some other stuff. I think my contact's name was Vic or Vickie. Give them a try. Company: Advance Chrome ADVANCE CHROME CONNECTION 2920 N. MAIN ST FORT WORTH, TEXAS 76106 Business: 800 (-832) -5389 E-mail: ADVANCECHROME@aol.com

I got the letters from (galaxieperformance) ebay store. He has all the letters and decals. They are expensive! But, he has them all. If he doesn't have them up on his store, you just need to call the number in any of his postings and ask him for them. I don't even know his name, because he just answers the phone "shop". Then just tell him what you're looking for.

1969 Ford Galaxie 500 2dr hrdtp.

Question:
I have been looking for informstion on interchanging parts for a 1969 Galaxie 500 2dr hrdtp. My car has a 390 fe 2bbl, and automatic trans, power steering and drum brakes (manual). I am intrested in converting to disc brakes (manual or power). I am thinking of swapping the 390 for a 460. So suspension and powertrain interchange is what I am interested in. Any information on this would be a big help. Thank You.

Response(s)
The LTDs from 68 up thru the Mid 70s and LTD IIs use the same ball joints so taking the spindle from one to another is relatively easy. They have different 1 or 2 piece hub/rotor designs depending on year but all have over 11" diameter which is pretty big and I think use the same bearings. Just get all the stuff from a donor car. If you get the booster off of the car, get the bracket that holds it and attaches to the brake pedal. Personally, I would keep the 390.

The 390 and the 429 were both available in the 1969 1970 chassis setup. The C6 trans will bolt right up to the 429 the only difference might be the trans cross member and the motor mounts. They are conversion kits. You could also make that 390 a 4 barrel and dual exhaust, the car did have that option in 1969.

I think that 390s and 429s have different bellhousing bolt patterns. You will probably need the c6 that came with the 429/460. Verify the bolt pattern first.

Response(s)
I have the same problem with mine which I have not dealt with yet. A couple of options are to have yours rebuilt by JustDashes. They may even have one you can buy. Another option is to buy a molded dash cover that slips on over yours. MAC's Antique Auto Parts and other vendors sell them. Some sellers will paint them to match your dash for a little extra money.

1960 Galaxie Sunliner

Question:
Have a 60 Sunliner. Want to know which interior parts, i.e., door panels especially, are interchangeable with what other Ford models/years?

Response(s)
The 1960 Ford 2 door hardtops would include the Starliner and the 2 door hardtop Galaxie along with the Sunliner. The door panels are different in style on all 3 models but will fit. The problem is they are hard to find. You might get a 1961 and 1962 Galaxie door panels to fit since they all have the metal trim at the top of the door and a flat door panel.

1967 Ford Galaxie 500

Question:
swapping engine in 1967 Ford Galaxie 500 from 289 to 390 bought new engine mounts but I am guessing I need different brackets on the cross member where can I find these?

Response(s)
When you do a swap like this its nice to have a complete donor car. The trans crossmember should be the same if you have the cruisomatic which is also know as the FMX it has what is called the greendot drive, the 289 also had the optional C4 and the 390 would have a C6. The C4 will not work on a 390, the Crusomatic will and so will the C6. If you have a C4 then you need a different crossmember. The Crusomatic is a big trans and a lot longer than the C4 so the driveshaft is probably different too.

Question:
Hey I've got a 68 Galaxie 500 4 door. She's got a 390 in her and I was wandering how I can tell if it was a police/special package? Thanks.

Response(s)
One easy thing to look for is the size of the brake power booster. The police and station wagons in 68 used a booster that was about 8" diameter and maybe 7-8" long. The other cars used one about 12-13" diameter and about 4" thick. The bracket mounting to the firewall is different. You can use this setup if you use tall Cobra valve covers for clearance.

1967 Ford LTD 4dr

Question:
Just bought a replacement power window motor for the left front window on my '67 LTD. I unbolted the regulator to remove old motor assembly. I installed new motor and now its seems impossible to install regulator. Do I have to remove the rear glass channel to posistion the regulator? Any help or links would help a lot.

Response(s)
I found out the answer to my own question! At the bottom of the window, there is a channel where the rollers are. This channel is attatched with two small phillips screws at either end. Just remove them and the whole channel comes out along with the arms and the plate that holds the motor. So simple when you remove the correct parts. That spring is extremley strong and will release when you unbolt and remove the motor. To reset the spring I had to put the whole mess in a vise and use some vise-grips to wind it around, then after boltng the motor in place, it holds that spring.

i would like a better discription of your problem, but you need two main incrediants, spark and fuel. if you have both these then you will have to try another number of illimations processes.another couple ideas are your points, condenser and plugs.

spark fuel compression the 3 you need if you have fuel and spark check timing chain take # 1 to tdc pull dist cap and check rotor to see if its pointed to #1 wire

you can also spray oil or some type of lubricant into each cylander there is a chance they are dry and not pulling the fuel into the cylanders

69 XL convertible Ford

Question:
Can't get the back seat out of my 69 XL Convertible to access the top pump. It does have the bucket seats if this matters. Thanks folks.

Response(s)
The bottom of the rear seats are held in with mainly tension, you have to push the cushion backwards then lift upwards. Some times they can be really wedged in and you really have to put a lot of pressure to push it back then lift it up. Once you get the bottom cushion up there are 2 bolts that hold the rear cushion to the rear deck under the lower cushion. You might need a buddy to help push and lift. Good luck

I'm not sure if anyone is reproducing the '68 Galaxie cover yet. You might consider having them made. Original Auto Interiors sells original leftover material. I purchased the correct material for a '64 Olds from them years ago. They might have what you need. SMS may also be reproducing the material now. Both businesses advertize in Hemming's.

NADA Classic Car Values
I would start with the link above. Also, search around to see what other prices of 67 Galaxies are out there. You don't want to price it too high so it doesn't sell or too low that it is thought to be a parts car or a really good deal. However, the value is a subjective number for a 45 year old car.

Question:
I have a 61 Galaxie Sunliner 390 Auto P/S no P/B Problem: My brake pedal has always been high maybe 2" travel and very hard. Yesterday I drove about 60 miles in hot weather. I stopped at a light and the pedal had no travel at all but the brakes worked ok. When i got home the brake lights were on after about 1 hour the brake pedal was normal and the brake lights were off. Any ideas?

Response(s)
i'm not 100% sure, but it sounds like your master cylinder is building up pressure as you drive and use the brakes. may have to replace the master cylinder. after the car sets for awhile the pressure that was built up slowly bleeds off.

Another thought is that the brake fluid has moisture in it. As it gets hot, boils off and builds unwanted pressure. As it cools, goes back to normal It is cheaper and easier to replace the fluid first. Old brake fluid gets dirty and can have moisture trapped in it' Good Luck

Thanks for the tips. I did both and the problem is solved.

Question:
Will a 1968 Ford 390cu engine from a right hand drive Galaxie fit into a 1964 left hand drive Thunderbird?

Response(s)
There should not be a problem with motor mounts. The later blocks have 3 mounting bolts and the older mounts will work. You need to verify the mounting bolts for the generator though. There is a difference in the mounting holes in early blocks and later years for generators and alternators. You should use the Thunderbird intake manifold also since the T-birds have flat carb flanges and Galaxies are angled. If you don't mind, send me a picture of the inside and engine bay of the right hand drive 68. I have 2.

the modular valve on the transmission is hooked up to a vacccum line. as the the poor shifting disconnect the shifting rods on the trans, then shift the trans by hand. if shift appears normal, then the problem is on the console such as worn parts or something has got caught in the shifting mechanism making it hard.

Question:
How do you remove the dashboard of a 1967 Gaslaxie 500 convertible? I've removed the screws near the speedometer, on the sides and from the metal mounting plates on each side of the driver. However, it seems to still be connected. Is there an instruction guide?

Response(s)
I have been having the same problem trying to change a directional light bulb. The dash has to come out to get to the speedometer. I got about as far as you did and couldn't figure out what was still holding it on. If you figure it out, please let me know. Lee

Its been a few years since I did mine. I believe there are screws on the top of the dash pad, maybe some on both sides under the windshield. I just took out whatever screws I could see. The dash pad will have to be pried out of there and then you get access to those dash and turn signal lites.

Question:
I just bought a 64 Galaxie 500 XL my question is this my front seats are bucket seats and on the back of the seats they have 2 bolts I seen somewhere that these were for harness seltbelts so I want to know if that is indeed what they are for and if so would I be able to use the one side as a mounting point if I wanted the 3 point seatbelts in the front??? Thanks

Response(s)
never seen what you describe, but not knowing where this bolts are, my opinion is if these bolts are at the top of the buckets, they were probably used to install after market head rests, very common in the 60's. these fords only came with seat belts for the front seats only and were mounted directly to the floor.

might be refering to bolts that were used to adjust angle of seat back

to start off with it takes more than that. you will also need a new combination valve. your best bet will be get both the valve and master cylinder used on the same type vehicle..would suggest maybe a 68 galaxie still had drum brake with optional disc. unless you are converting to disc make sure all parts are for the drum brakes. lots of older 70's ford truck had with combo and works well.

Question:
Does anyone make aftermarket parts for the Ford Galaxie family of cars? Specifically for the year 1967? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Response(s)
There are many places out there but you have to do some work e-bay and salvage yards, picked up a taillight, windshield, door glass recently. Auto Krafters, Dearborn Classics and Mac have some but not much. Drop me a note and I can send a list.

I would appreciate to know the answer too...

Dearborn ford has all the replacement parts for all the galaxies that is where I get my parts for my 1966 galaxie 500

Yeah I have looked on dearborne classics and they only offer a dashpad thats not really what im looking for. I would lile to totally remove the stock dash and replace it with something a little better looking lol.

Try Justdashes.com I'm doing the same thing, my problem is I don't have a guide to remove the dash. I've removed the screws I can see, but I'm not sure if I have to remove the covering on the front window posts? How is the back of the dash (near the defroster vents) attached? Is there a book?

There was a picture of a 65 that I saw online that the owner built his own and it looked very cool. I wish I would have saved the picture because I can't find it anymore. I think I will do the same thing in my 66. I figure I it will take a while but its possible.

Response(s)
Keith I don't believe it will . its a different block,the Fe block for the 332-428cid are the same and the 429,460 are diff.Im not 100% tho.

you can change the engine but you need new motor mounts and the trans will not bolt up. They have different bolt patterns which means you might have to change drive lines. You will want the accessory brackets and accessories for the new engine. exhaust manifolds will be different but should bolt to the exhaust pipes

the 390 is a fe series engine, the 429 is a 385 series engine same as a 460. you can change out the engines but you will need the 429 engine mounts the trans mount and the exhaust pipes ,also the radiator and altenator . crites sells converion kits for this swap

Response(s)
had the same question myself while replacing cylinders on my 66. what i found was that usually the larger of the cylinders were used on the xl and the 7 ltr. the larger ones are just a little more heavier duty than the small. i went with the 15/16 cause you can never have too much stopping power.

Question:

The Gen light comes on, but I think that is because the regulator is not working right or not getting a right input, i.e. the ground to the red/blue wire. This wire runs all the way to the ignition switch, but I cannot see to jump it to ground any where else to get the car to start. Getting confused in Iowa.

Lets see if i remember this correctly . Its been a while ,,.......Remove the rear bolt on the crossmember , then remove the nut on the front offset shaft . Then get a socket to hold the front bolt that runs thru the frame - it is 2.5" in size or something crazy like that . Loosen that big bolt and the lower arm should start loosening .

Hi, was wondering if anybody could tell me the location of the block VIN number cuz I'm trying to figure out what motor is in my 66 Galaxie 500. It has a 390 emblems on it but I keep hearing different things about different motors in it so I am just trying to figure it out so then I can start my restoration on the vehicle. Thankx and please get back to me as soon as you can.

Response(s)
I have a 66 Gal Conv First the vin on the car will tell you what engine it left the factory with 5th position will be a letter X= 352 4BBL Z= 390 2BBL R= 428 4BBL you can look in this site to help you decode the vin As far as engine, if it is an FE(352) series motor, it will have a raised 352 in the drivers side just below the cylinder head on the block near the water pump plus the valve cover rail is part of the intake manifold If it is a small block, ie 289,302 then the will not have the valve cover rail as part of the intake.If i remember, the only choices are 289,302,352,390,and 428 cid If someone put in a "385" series motor, 429 or 460 cid, it will have 385 raised in the same place on the block below the head drivers side good luck

The "Z" means 390 but it can be 2 or 4 bbl carb.

Question:
I have a 1967 Galaxie 500. Does not have a drive shaft. I need to know whats a good company that can make one and also need the length of it.

Response(s)
I have three drive shafts that came out of 1967 Galaxies. Where you located? I'm near Austin, TX.

I am looking for a drive shaft aswell for my 67, but I'm located in Canada

Hey did you find a drive shaft. I also need one for a 1967. If you found please let me know. I need 1 badly.

Oh I am in Florida but can travel to get the drive shaft. email me please if you have another.

If you can obtain dimension, CRAFT machine Works in Hampton VA can make drive shafts. Google them and give them a call.

1965 Ford Galaxie 500 4 door

Question:
Having trouble getting bolts off for the front bench seat in my 1965 4 door Ford Galaxie 500. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Response(s)
Good evening. Try spraying them with Kroil Oil. This is the best stuff for loosening rusty or tough bolts, nuts, etc. It beats everything else on the market.

50/50 mix of auto trans fluid and acetone, works better than anything made.

65 Galaxie Convertible

Question:
I have a 65 Galaxie Convertible. 390 car has a cruise-o-matic. Will a C6 fit?

Response(s)
I swapped my cruise-o-matic for a C6 in my 289 65 Galaxie no problem. I used a Lokar kit to connect the column shifter. I had to slide the crossmember back to line up the transmission mount. My car did not come with a driveshaft, so I had one made.

Question:
Needing a 1967 Galaxie 500 hood. Not having good luck in my area. Anyone know if any Lincoln/Mercury hoods will fit?

Response(s)
What area are you in? I know a salvage yard with several 67 Galaxies in it. Most are 4-doors, but the front is all the same. I am in West Tennessee.

Where is the yard with the 67's? I have a '67 conv and never know when you need parts.

One is Dillingham Auto in North west Mississippi. He had a 4 door 67. carydestes@yahoo.com

1967 Ford Galaxie 500 2 dr. H.T. fastbac

Question:
I need to replace the fuel sending unit in my 1967 Galaxie 500 2 dr . H.T. fastback. Do I have to remove the gas tank?

Response(s)
I am going to say no. It will probably be a pain, but it can be done. I of course recommend to everyone to buy a service manual. Best money you can spend.

I just bought the same car and need to replace the sending unit too. I have a dumb question; since the sending unit is mounted on the side of the gas tank does it need to be emptied first? How expensive is it?

took mine out of a 66 convert without dropping tank you need jack stands, creeper and work light i suggest some goggles to keep stuff out of your eyes

1972 Galaxie 500 4dr sedan

Question:
Hello, Is there a way to find the production date (even approximately, say a month) from only the VIN? I have a model 1972 Ford Galaxie500 4dr sedan. It's an export (sold originally by Ford in Belgium, EU. Production plant is Norfolk, VA, USA. I contacted Ford USA headquarters, but they need the codes on the door tag. The problem is, the door tag is missing, from a previous restoration (or exports never had one?). The only identification it carries (besides its Belgian registration papers) is a Belgian VIN fender plate from Ford Motor Company Antwerp (it only shows VIN, a Belgian/European Type-approval code, Weight and Max.Towing Weight). Does anyone have datasheets showing production months for VIN serial nr ranges? For example "from 2N54H-111111 to -222222 = nov 1971", etc...? For a (very rough) estimate: I did find a number 72 in a dotted circle, stamped in a bracket of the steering column. Assuming that is still the original part, that would date it to somewhere in 1972, instead of late 71, I guess? Also: engine code H (351 2barrel V8), is that the Windsor or Cleveland motor? Thanks, Werner

1968 Ford Galaxie 500 conv

Question:
I have a 1968 Galaxie 500 conv with a severely rusted frame, are any other years or hardtop frames the same?

Response(s)
Your frame interchange is 65 - 68 with only some minor variations over the years. 2 door and 4 door are the same. Convertables are different.

I have a 1968 Galaxie 500 Convertable. The only issue I have had with any rusting is the floor pans, due to sitting in yard for a couple years. My frame is in great shape and the body has never been wrecked.

I found a few small holes in the bottom of the rectangular tubes that run front to back on my 68 LTD when sandblasting. I had a metal fabricator bend me some 11 gauge channels that came up the sides an inch and welded into good metal. The body had to be lifted but not completely removed. The inside was soaked in rust killer and sealers, etc. This may work for you if it is the same area. I can get you the name and number of the guy that made the parts and he probably still has the drawing that I sent him.

1964 Galaxie 500

Question:
I'm rebiulding the front end on my 64 Galaxie and I am putting new shafts and bushings in the upper control arms. I know that there is a Ford tool for this but I can't locate one. Is there anybody that will sell me one or can you give me an idea of how to center the shaft while I'm screwing the bushings in. Any help is appreciated.

Response(s)
I know this is not much help but look at these sites. The owner made a simple centering tool. It also appears that you also need some sort of stabilizer to "fix" a design problem. http://www.kuumakyyti.com/ragtop64/ http://www.fordmuscleforums.com/galaxie-pages/507550-64-upper-control-arm-shafts.html http://www.fordmuscleforums.com/suspension-articles/485352-60-64-galaxie-lower-arm-offset-shaft-eliminator.html
