  • Smoke Gray 2019 release 1964 Ford Galaxie













    A course you can see I changed the wheels.

    Here's an earlier model of the Galaxie in Drag Race-Trim so to speak. I have a hard time with my old eyes distinguishing the differences in color.



    Due to the recent budget cuts,
    the rising cost of electricity, gas, and oil, plus the
    current state of the economy, the light at the end
    of the tunnel has been turned off.

    I sure do love mine... AW did a great job on all of these Galaxies and the Country Squires... The 64s have been my fav year for the Fords since I was a little tyke. That year produced the Thunderbolt too. I really like that dog dish look!!!

              I'll open mine tonight after work. Both the ones on the pegs looked like the one side the wheels are up into the fender to high. I'll let you know.

                Scotty, it was the rims I wasn't happy with but that's me. I'm way too particular to be in this hobby. I will say this I have lots of extra parts for laughing out loud.

                  I just had to come back and see that Galaxie with the black rims and dog dish caps. That has to be the meanest street look out there. I think that color sets it off as well. I have always liked the 64 Galaxies since I first seen them in the showroom in October of 1963, with my dad, grandpa, and uncle. They all had 63 Galaxies at the time, my uncles was the 427 4 speed with dog dish caps. I loved that look then as I do now. I was able to make this Johnny 63 Galaxie exactly like my uncles 63 was. I never cared for the red interior and had to paint this one red too. His didn't have the bubble hood though...



                  My dad and grandpa traded their 63s in on new 64 models, but my uncle kept his for a few more years. He finally traded his Galaxie in on a 67 Fairlane with the same power plant. 427 4 speeds. I can clearly remember both cars were "LOUD" and how they held you in the back in the seats while he had it nailed and going through the gears... I flipped when Johnny released this 67 Fairlane just like his was. That was one quick machine for the day and era!!!



                  My other uncle on mom's side had a red 64 Impala 409 4 speed. Again Johnny did one just like his. I watched them race so many times, and it was always nose to nose. A complete toss up who crossed the line by a bumper each time. Those were such exciting days, I was only about 10 years old then. When ever I see these old school high performance cars in 1/64th with the steelie rims and dog dishes, it takes me back to some glory filled nights and fond, fond memories. My uncle JD, later replaced his dog dish caps with Cragar mags on his Impala. I still liked the dish caps better and it didn't make his car any faster though!!!



                  Oh yeah, I forgot to mention and compliment ya on those pics Daniel... You are a real pro buddy!!!

                    I like your photos too man. Now I know the whole story on that red galaxy with the red rims. Very cool.

                      The set of wheels on mine look OK. But as luck would have it I do have a set of dog caps like yours, maybe I'll switch them out as well.

                      I would love for AW to make a 63 (and 64) 4 door. My Pop had a 63 Gal sedan white with a dark blue vinyl roof and interior. I rode home from the hospital in it after I was born.....first car I was ever in.

                        If you change them be ready to work your thumbs off. It's never easy with auto world. Put some oil on the wheels it will help.
